Wizards of Daviess County" With Phil Martin


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

As a boy, Phil Martin would often hear far-fetched tales of his great-grandfather James Morton Stafford and his many inventions. Phil decided to peel into his family history to see if he could separate truth from fiction, and, across three decades of work, ended up compiling an exhaustive family history of the Staffords in southern Indiana. He has published a book “Those Martin Boys” about his paternal grandparents and their family, as well as a history and genealogy of the Stafford family called “The Wizards of Daviess County.” Phil will join us at the Museum to talk about family history, genealogy, and research. This is a free event and open to the public.
