Harry V. Martin

M, b. circa 1902, d. before 2002
     Harry V. Martin was born circa 1902 at Maries Co. (probably), MO. He was the son of William Robert Davault and Martha Victoria Cox. Harry V. Martin married Jessie Marie Chacon circa August 1926; Jessie later remarried to (1) Stanley Hubert Pugh, and (2) Marlin M. Eubanks. Harry V. Martin died before 2002.
Note: Per Tracy Devault's DNA and genealogy research:

What we know and what we suspect

In the mid-1920s, Harry V. Martin was in the U.S. Army and stationed in the San Francisco area. There he started a relationship with Jessie Marie Chacon. This relationship produced a son, Carroll Rodney Chacon-Martin, born 7 May 1927 in San Francisco. Not long after the birth of Carroll, Jessie married Stanley H. Pugh. She had several children with Stanley and her son Carroll adopted the Pugh surname.

At some point Jessie told Carroll that he was the son of Harry V. Martin. She also gave Carroll a photo of Harry. On the back of the photo, probably written by Jessie, is the notation: "Serg Harry V. Martin, 15 Co., Fort Mills, Philippines Islands."

About 1946, Carroll Pugh married Rosemary Sheila Pater. Carroll and Rosemary started a family that eventually included four children: Theresa Lee Pugh, Sheridan Marie Pugh, Carroll Rodney Pugh, Jr. and Howard Alan Pugh. Carroll Sr. passed away in 2008 and Rosemary passed away in 2019.

It was about that time that Sheridan Pugh decided to learn what she could about her father’s father. Her investigation started in two main areas. 1) She sent away for Harry V. Martin’s military records and 2) She had her brother Howard’s Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) tested by Family Tree DNA (FTDNA).

Summary of Harry V. Martin’s military records:

First let me say that many of Harry V. Martin’s military records were lost in the 1973 fire at the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in Saint Louis, Missouri. Below is what Sheridan gleaned from Harry’s records that are still available.

a) Harry V. Martin entered the Army about 1919 from Wichita, Kansas. He entered the service as a private.

b) During 1920 – 1921 he was assigned to the Coastal Artillery Corps and stationed at Fort Mills in the Philippine Islands. Most of the rest of the time, up until late 1926, he was stationed in the San Francisco area.

c) In late 1926 he was transferred to Chicago.

d) At one point Harry said his father was John T. Martin and that he lived in Kansas City, Missouri.

e) In 1932 he was mustered out of the service with the rank of Staff Sergeant.?He gave his last address as Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Summary of Harry V. Martin’s ancestry (via Howard Alan Pugh’s DNA tests):

Sheridan first had Howard Alan Pugh’s Y-DNA analyzed by Family Tree DNA. Y-DNA is generally transferred unchanged from father to son. As such, any two males with identical Y-DNA will have a common male ancestor. This is true even if one has to go back many generations to find that common male ancestor.

FTDNA’s Y-DNA analysis of Howard’s Y-DNA showed that he was a direct-male-line descendant of Henry Dewald (1733 – 1817). FTDNA records showed that several other individuals were also direct-male-line descendants of Henry Dewald. I was one of those individuals. Sheridan used the information on file with FTDNA to contact me. I was interested in learning about any newly discovered Dewald/Davault/DeVault descendants and decided to join Sheridan’s investigation.

I suggested to Sheridan that she have Howard’s autosomal DNA tested by Autosomal DNA is used to connect close relatives. Furthermore, has a huge database of people that have had their autosomal DNA tested. The results of Howard’s test showed that he was a close relative of Aubrey Bruce Davault (1950 - ). Using that information and what we believed to be Harry V. Martin’s birth information (born about 1902 in Missouri) we determined that Harry V. Martin was a son of William Robert Davault (1862 – 1925). William Robert Davault was born and lived out his life in Maries County, Missouri. After a much more extensive analysis of Howard’s DNA Match List we came to the conclusion that Harry V. Martin was a son of William Robert Davault and his first wife, Martha Victoria “Victoria” Cox. That meant that Harry would have been born a Davault and then likely given up to a family with the Martin surname. William and Victoria already had four children. The only reason we could come up with for giving Harry up was that Victoria was dying of tuberculosis and they may have felt that William could not raise an infant son on his own.

Other information about Harry V. Martin gleaned from traditional genealogical research:

Very little additional information regarding Harry V. Martin has been uncovered. The notice of his final discharge from the military in 1932 is the most recent information we have on him.

1) The following article appeared in the May 3, 1921 issue of The Wichita Daily Eagle, Page 5 (

PRIVATE JAMES E. DEVINE, 13th company, M.B., Fort Mills, P.I., sends the Eagle a plea for letters from United States girls to the boys in foreign service. “We do get lonesome” he writes, “and would like to correspond with some nice girls. Private Horace Sumner and Private Homer M. Layton of the same company and Private Everett Gumm and Corporal Harry V. Martin of the 15th company, same station, pledge themselves to reply to all letters written them.”

2) The 1910 Census for Osage, Crawford County, Missouri, lists a Harry Martin, age 8, born in Missouri as an adopted child. He is living with Robert and Martha Jane (Oxendine) Stinnett. Also living with the couple was Martha’s brother, Jesse Oxendine. By 1920 everybody had gone their separate ways.

3) I mentioned above that in one of his military records Harry listed his contact person as his father, John T. Martin. The record gave his father’s address as 433 Minnesota Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri. We did not find a Minnesota Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri but we did find one in Kansas City, Kansas. We did not find any listing for a John T. Martin living in that area near the date that when Harry provided the information.

The above 1910 Census record was for Osage, Crawford County, Missouri. In the 1900 Census record for the same area we found a family headed by a John T. Martin. That John T. Martin died a year and a half later and the family seemed to disappear after that.

4) We have surmised, based solely on DNA evidence, that Harry may have fathered two other children: Ada Mae (Lorts) Tanner, born 2 Nov 1938 in Missouri and Baby Boy Lowe born 18 Mar 1932 in Joilet, Will County, Illinois. Baby boy Lowe was adopted at birth and grew up with the name, Thomas Alfred Stengele.

That is about the sum total of everything we know or think we know about Harry V. Martin.

     Henry Franklin Martin was born on 13 May 1804 at Pennsylvania. He married Mary Ann Boone, daughter of Daniel DeHart Boone and Mary Chloe Wallingford, on 20 January 1829 at Mason Co., KY. Henry Franklin Martin died on 21 June 1859 at Moscow Mills, Lincoln Co., MO, at age 55

Biography -- (

Henry and his wife Mary Ann (nee Boone) came to Moscow Mills from Maysville, KY in 1833 after a fire destroyed their General Store on Sutton St. He purchased the house, mill and gist from the Shapleigh Ross family (daughter Caroline Ross Geiger Wright specifically) and also opened a General Store across the street. The "Old Rock House" is now a historic landmark.

He was buried in June 1859 at Troy City Cemetery, Troy, Lincoln Co., MO, Findagrave #116236928.

Henry J. Martin

M, b. 18 September 1866, d. 10 March 1950
     Henry J. Martin was born on 18 September 1866 at Lee Co., IA. He married Harriet Romania Davalt, daughter of Samuel Davalt and Marium Maria Coffeen, on 14 May 1912 at Clark Co., MO, Harriet was not married until she was at least 37 years old. This was Henry's second marriage. Henry and Harriet did not have any children of their own, however, two of Henry's children from his previous marriage lived with the family for many years.
There is some confusion regarding Henry's children. In the 1900 Census Henry is shown with his first wife and two children: Leona (age 5) and Gerald (age 3). In the 1910 Census Henry is a widower with two children: Leona (age 14) and Gerald (age 13). In the 1920 Census Henry is shown with second wife Harriet and two children: Gerald (age 22) and Mildred M. (age 19). I am assuming, for the time being, that Mildred was the daughter of one of Henry's relatives and that she may have been adopted.
Gerald was the informant on his father's death certificate. He died in 1976.
