The Martins (est. 1970)

The Martins have been the corner stone of Pine Valley since All My Children’s inception in 1970. Even before Joe Martin married Ruth Brent, Kate Martin was a symbol of stability and strong family values. Nowadays, Joe spends his days balancing his responsibilities as Chief of Staff at Pine Valley Hospital, and the tumultuous love lives of his many children and grandchildren.


Joe (Ray MacDonnell) and Ruth's (Mary Fickett) 1971 union remains in the longest in Pine Valley history.
By adopting Tad (Michael Knight) the Martins also adopted his biological family, including sister Jenny (Kim Delaney).
Tad's daughter Jenny was the Martin Clan's newest member in 2007.
