Sarah Chapman Martin (b. 3 Feb 1836, AL; d. 11 Apr 1879, Van Zandt Co., TX) was the daughter of Catherine Elizabeth Marable (b. 29 Jul 1813, GA; d. 9 Nov 1888, Talledega Co., AL) and Elijah Martin, Jr. (b. 22 Apr 1810, Jasper Co., GA; d. ca 1884, AL) and the granddaughter of Champion Christopher Marable (b. 12 Apr 1783, Charlotte Co., VA; d. 11 Jul 1854, Jasper Co., GA). Sarah maried Samuel Rosemond Clark in Talledega Co., AL, in 1856, and they moved west to Van Zandt Co., Texas. Sarah and Samuel are pictured here with their son Christopher Ambrose Clark (b.
