Re: MARTIN Baker & Leah Stokes Cnty, NC

Well Sandra, I'm afraid I didn't have much luck. The white Bittings held many people as slaves, and tended to move them all around between relatives and in-laws, I suspect in an attempt to cheat the taxman. Then after emancipation, the black Bittings moved again, trying to put their families back together, so that it's very difficult to track of who goes where.
Anyway, I did find Alfred Bitting, born 1883, living in Winston, who married Sarah Martin, born 1884, living in Winston, on 31 August 1903. No witnesses named, however. There is also a Maggie Bitting, born May 1877, who was living in Salem Chapel, Forsyth Co. with her father Jerry Bitting on 20 June 1900. She was a widow and working as a farm laborer; could not read or write. Jerry was born in October 1853. Other children included Alice, born April 1882, and Maggie’s children Billey (November 1895), Rolen (September 1896) and Sandy (Sept. 1899)
On 4 May 1910, Alfred and Sarah Bidding were living on Main Street in Winston with their children Jennie M. Bidding, born 1907, and Gladis Bidding, born May 1909. Alfred, born 1886, was a car sealer with the railway company, while Sarah, born 1883, was a stemmer in a tobacco factory. Everyone was listed as a mulatto except Alfred. The family was renting a room with John L. and Mary Martin.
Now, there's a Martin connection, plus the names Jennie and Gladys, but they would be too young to be your witnesses.
Sigh -- I'll keep looking. Let me know if you have any more details. -- best, Gordon
