      !AFN: NVX1-5C ANCESTRAL FILE. Martin3 Fugate, son of Benjamin2 & Hann ah Fugate,
      was born (doubtless in Russell Co., VA) say 1783. He accompanied hi s parents to
      Troublesome Creek, KY, in what was eventually Breathitt Co., then i n Clay Co.
      where he was taxed from 1808 to 1820, and after 1821 in Perry Co. whe re he was
      taxed from 1821 to 1838. His wife was named Mary.* She was born abou t 1784
      (aged 16 to 26 in 1810, but she stated she was 70 years old in the 18 50
      census). He received a deed for land on Troublesome Creek, Perry Co . in 1821.
      In the 1810 frederal census of Clay co. Martin & Mary Fugate had tw o sons and a
      daughter, with two more daughters and four more sons in the 1820 cens us, and
      two mroe sons in the 1830 census (a number appear to have died in chi ldhood).
      Two of these children according to descendants were Hannah and Zachar iah.
      Although there is no contemporary identification of all the childre n it is
      evident that the young Fugate men named Benjamin, Andrew, John, Marti n and
      Isaac, associated with them and residing as neighbors to them and t o the
      widowed Mary, are their children. Martin Fugate was last taxed in 183 8 and
      probably died soon after. Mary Fugate, aged 50-60, was residing in Br eathitt Co
      in 1840 with one male 20-30, one male 15-20, three males 10-15, one f emale
      30-40, and two females 10-15. This appears to be the combined househo lds of
      Mary and her daughter-in-law Sarah, widow of Benjamin. She appears ag ed 70 in
      the 1850 Breathitt Co. census in household 226 with her son, Martin F ugate,
      aged 22, and granddaughter Mary Fugate, aged 18, with the remainder o f her
      family as neighbors: son John in household 225, son Isaac in 227, gra ndson
      Andrew in 228 grandson Martin in 229 and son Andrew in 231.
      *The parents of Mary, wife of Martin Fugate, have not been identified . The
      understanding of an inherited medical condition in her descendants pr ovides
      some basis for speculation as to her identity. A number of descendant s of
      Martin & Mary Fugate and of Martin & Elizabeth (Smith) Fugate (and i n a number
      of other Breathitt Co. families) have been determined to have a rar e inherited
      blood disorder called methemoglobinemia in which some of the hemoglob in of the
      red blood cells exists in an abnormal form called methemoglobin whic h imparts a
      blue color to the skin, particularly after a period of exertion. Th e condition
      begins as a mutation in one individual whose children have a 50:50 ch ance of
      inheriting the new mutated gene. Individuals receiving tow genes, on e from each
      parent, do appear 'blue'. Because of the rarity of the mutation the m ost likely
      appearance is found in those decended from the marriages of cousins . Although
      it is possible that the mutated gene originated with the common ances tor of the
      two Martins, it is much more likely that it occurred in the common an cestry of
      the wives of the two Martins in Kentucky. Study of the ancestry of in dividuals
      in a number of families with methemoglobinemia show recurring commo n ancestry
      in the Ritchie family. For that reason it is likely that Mary, wife o f Martin
      Fugate was a member of that family.
