  • Notes 
    • Aaron was a Veteran of the War of 1812.

      The Evidence shows Aaron was married three times.

      His first marriage was to Anna "Nancy" Martyn, on 7 Jan 1794, she was born on 5 August 1772 very likely in Windham, Connecticut. She passed on 20 Jan 1804 In Williamstown Vermont. She was the daughter of Richard and Susannah A. (Low) Martyn and the sister of Aaron Smith Martyn who married Sally Martin , the sister of Aaron.

      He married his second wife on 6 May 1804, she was Hanna Wise , born in 1781, in Conn. and died 19 Feb 1809 Williamstown Vermont. She was the sister of Sarah who wed Gurdon Martin, Aaron's Brother. Hanna and Aaron had three children.

      On 5 Oct 1809, Aaron married his third wife, Polly Burnham, born on 3 Nov 1788 in Brookfield Vermont,, and died on 26 August 1864 in Williamstown Vermont. She was the daughter of Elijah and Albina (Bowen) Burnham of Ashford Connecticut which is near Hampton Connecticut. Elijah Burnham was a descent of John Burnham of Ipswich, Massachusetts was likely the first of the Burnham family to go to Hampton Conn. then on to Vermont. He was born in 1763, and died on 17 Feb 1813 in Brookfield Vermont. His wife , Albina was born in 1764, and died on 6 Nov 1830 in Brookfield Vermont. They were likely the parents of Ariel who was the father of Martin Pain Burnham, who married Ann Ellis , daughter of Hiram and Philenda ( Smith) Ellis of Williamstown and South Barre Vermont.

      Aaron was likely the first of the Martin family to come from Windham, Connecticut to Williamstown, Vermont which he did in 1791. He remained one season to clear a small piece of land , build a log cabin, and then return on foot to Windham for his wife Anna. Though Anna spelled her last name with a "y", history tells us such distinctions meant nothing and she may have been a distant relative of Aaron's before marriage.

      Aaron Martin had 14 children combined with all three of his wives. Five died in infancy. The others made it to adult hood and each had many children of their own, of which their off spring are living to this date ( 2013). The Martin's played a big role in the development of Williamstown Vermont and the surrounding area, many serving in public office as Judges, counsel members, Police, and doctors. Most early Martins were farmers in addition to public officials, and to this day many are farmers, while still serving their communities.
