Hi mroddyn3 and welcome to Ireland Reaching Out.
Thank you for submitting the query regarding Martin families from Fanad (in the Parish of Clondavaddog),
I will have a look to see what family information I can find out for you and get back to you soon as I can.

Hi mroddyn3. I have been checking out all available newspapers from about that time and unfortunately I was unable to find an obituaries for Susan martin or any of her children such as Patrick or Mary. I do know that in the US obituaries and notation in parish registers would be common place, however this would rarely be the case here in Donegal in the 1800s. I also have heard that sometimes church registers do marginal notations for marriages occurring elsewhere but it is something have yet to see in the Parish registers for Clonadavaddog.

The martin family that you are enquiring about has come up on as few family trees. In particular Patrick and Mary Martin's family. I even have Patrick in my own family tree due to him being married to Cannon .
I know the owners of these family trees, and just like myself they have had thier DNA done with Ancestry. If it is a case where you have also had you DNA done with ancestry, there is a good chance that connection will show up for that family or to at least other some families in Fanad (Parish of Clonadavaddog)
