The Martins were an old Cracker family that had settled in the Big Scrub not long after the end of the Second Seminole Indian War. The area was between Ocklawaha and the St. Johns rivers, and in 1908 became the Ocala National Forest. It was almost half a million acres, and up to the time that I worked there, it had been open range.
