Born April 7, 1918, Lucien Martin was the seventh child of Sidney J. Martin Sr. and Anais Mouton. Together with his wife Melba, Martin collected information and photographs to publish a work on the genealogy of his family. The 11 photographs included in this collection were likely copied as part of Martin’s research for the book’s publication.
