At 6:30 Saturday evening, July 1, as Nelson Martin was sitting on the porch of his residence in this village he fell dead from heart trouble. He had ridden to Westfield during the afternoon and apparently enjoyed visiting with his friends. He had been in a serious condition for months and recently his physician had warned him about over exertion. His age was 68 years, three months and 29 days. Mr. Martin had been a prosperous farmer who sold his farm a few years ago and moved into the village. He was a man of industry and honorable in his deal. He was a veteran of the Civil war and a member of the M.E. church. He is survived by his widow who whose maiden name was Maria Miller. She was a sister of the late Eugene Miller, and of Mrs. E.W. Langmaid. Mr. Martin is also survived by two brothers, John Martin of Westfield and Peter Martin of this town. The funeral was held at the residence on Monday, his pastor, the Rev. F A. Krackhardt officiating.
