    • NOTE: Although the below book mentions that this John Martin and John Martin (husband of Tomasa Cantua - http://www.schwaldfamily.org/getperson.php?personID=I26239&tree=RodSchwald ) are the same person, this John Martin is listed as dying of cholera in 1850, and John Martin, husband of Tomasa Cantua had his last recorded real estate transaction in 1857. This is definitive proof we are talking about two separate John Martins.

      JOHN MARTIN LIVING TWO LIVES WITH TWO WIVES:
      CHAPTER XXIX Rancho San Ysidro
         ... "Don Ygnacio's [Ortega] adobe house ... a frame addition was made to this house, probably by his friend, the Scotch carpenter named John Martin, who later married his granddaughter, Maria Basilisa Encarnacion Bernal y Ortega. ...
      His friend, John Martin, seemed to live two lives successfully.
      He first married a Cantua girl who lived on the San Ysidro, in 1826 at San Carlos.
      In 1835 he married Maria Basilisa Encarnacion Bernal y Ortega, daughter of Maria Raimunda Ortega de Bernal and granddaughter of Ygnacio, at San Jose.
      He then continued to live with both wives,
      with the first wife in Marin County, where he was the grantee of Corte Madera de Novato,
      and Santa Clara County with Basilisa, grantee of the Embarcadero de Santa Clara (now the site of Alviso)."
