MARTIN - Dundee
« on: Tuesday 06 October 20 17:23 BST (UK) »
Looking for my Martin ancestors, have gone back 4 generations but I am stuck finding any of my grandfather’s siblings. He was Andrew Martin  1896-1941, his brothers were Joseph 1887, John Cornelius 1888, Francis 1894, James 1899, Patrick 1900 and William 1903 information obtained from census records …. all Dundee. I do have information on my grandfather’s father and grandfather …. Thanks in advance.

Have you looked at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk?

John Cornelius Martin died in 1888 aged under 1 year, mother's maiden surname Mitchell.

Cornelius Martin, aged 74, died in Dundee in 1905. His death certificate should tell you the names of his parents. Looks as if he may have been John Cornelius' grandfather.

Mary Ann Martin or Mitchell died in Dundee in 1934 aged 74.

Thank you for that information, it is exactly as I found it, you are correct about Cornelius being John Cornelius' grandfather.     
Cornelius was born in Ireland and so I have not gone any further with this line  (yet)
Still hoping for a lead on one of the other Martin brothers

Not sure if you are still looking for information ..There are army records for a  Joseph Martin
He enlisted 22/11/1905 age 18 occupation carter Regiment Number 23666 Army Service Corps
Lists his next of kin as Andrew Martin Mother Mary Ann Martin 32,Union Street Dundee

This Joseph enlists again 1907 and on his records same contact details for parents but a change of address 38,Carnegie Street Dundee
On the records there is a death certificate for his wife Beatrice Martin other name Leonard died 1917 St Clements Dundee ..There is a marriage for  Beatrice Leonard 1911 Kirkcaldy to a Joseph Martin might be worth looking at ..There were 2 daughters from this marriage
