Wiley Martin

Searching for information on great grandfather, Wiley Martin. He was born in 1834 in Barnwell County, SC to Joseph Hawkins and Elizabeth Bates Martin. They lived in Barnwell County thru the 1850 census and then moved to Emanuel County, GA where they appear on the 1860 census. By this time, Wiley is listed as a head of household with wife and two sons. He next shows up in Michigan City, Benton County, MS in 1872 and marries my great grandmother, Susan Jefcote(Jeffcoat) and they have four more sons. They are there until the 1880 census and pass away sometime after that and before the 1900 census. There are several Wiley Martin's listed in some of the GA Regiments but do not know for sure which one would be the one that I'm looking for.

If someone could offer some advice or if they have run across this elusive great grandfather, I would really love to hear from you.

Thanks and God Bless
