I have a few family members who are into genealogy who send me fun updates from time to time. This one is loosely library related so I’ll share it with you here.
Your Great Great Grandfather, James Brown Martin and his wife Jane Moore Martin were born in Belfast, Ireland. Lived in the Bronx for many years! He fought in the Civil war and then returned to NYC to work as a stone mason on the NYC Library, City Hall and other public buildings.
