What is the real story behind the martin house? I've googled the heck out of it and found nothing regarding what actually happened in the house. I also didn't find any records or news paper articles regarding the house. It's almost like someone is hiding something? Even the physical address is a mystery. One would think a house built in 1910 would be considered historical? My spouse, a history buff" is from a neighboring county and even he's never heard of the house. I'm baffled but I have a theory.

During the last few days, I've discovered that John D.Martin purchased land, 004S-014W plots 1,2&5 in 1888 and his wife Sarah purchased plots 3&4 in 1885. Both I believe died elsewhere from natural causes. John C Gray built the house in 1910 and built at least half a dozen others in bay county. I also found out, via newspapers.com the Knights of Columbus used the house as a clubhouse back in the mid to late 50s. I'm beginning to think no one died there and if someone did, it isn't who we were lead to believe. Something isn't adding up.
