      The connection between the above families has been found. Pleasereview the register reports and follow the family lines for (1).Benjamin B. Labaw & Elizabeth Ann Smith, (2). Elizabeth Martin &Berryman Smith, and the couple (3). John Joseph Martin & MariaCatherine Otterbach. Elizabeth Ann Smith's grandmother is ElizabethMartin who is a direct descendant of John Joseph Martin from Muesen,Nassau - Siegen, Germany who settled in the first Germanna Colony ofFaquier County, Virginia in 1714. The family line has been tracedback to John Joseph Martin. A Michael Clore, a part of the Douglass/LaBaw descendants, or vice-versa (the families have extensivehistories of their own), is one of the first settlers to the samecolony in Faquier County, Virginia in 1717, just a few years later.These families are all related to each other through differentgenealogy lines. Conclusion: The families all had to have known eachother well for it was a very small community and they had all workedtogether and lived in the Fort together at Germanna, Virginia fornearly ten years until their passages to the new world were paid off.[SLJuhl, 30 Oct 2005]
