|The farm of Christopher
C. Martin and later his son, Cleveland T. Martin, was located
on what, in 2000, is Brown Road--just north of the Shawnee County line
in Jackson County, Kansas, 1/2 mile west of the Jefferson County line.
Cleve's farm was 320 acres, 1/2 section: 1/2 mile wide east/west and one
mile wide north/south. In addition, Cleve and family farmed Grandma Anna
Martin's adjacent property: 40 acres east and 80 acres south. The southern
acreage (in Shawnee County) was used for pasture land.
