Had Mr. Martin lived until next April, he would have been 78 years old.

Mr. Mann was born in Wolcott, and had always lived there. He enlisted in the Civil War, but due to sickness, went only as far as Brattleboro, and had to return home. Mr. Mann was a retired farmer. He was very successful in business, and had held many town offices.
