Martin DeFoor (September 17, 1805 – July 25, 1879) was an early Atlanta settler.

In the 1840s he moved his family from Franklin County, Georgia to Panthersville. In 1853 he moved to the Bolton area and took over operation of Montgomery ferry and resided at the Montgomery home the rest of his life. It was thereafter known as DeFoor's Ferry. On July 25, 1879 he and his wife, Susan, were brutally murdered there with an axe and the killer was never found.[1]
