Westley Martin, who resided in Marshfield for a great many years, and was well known in Plainfield, died at his home last Wednesday. He was 78 years of age and a veteran of the Civil War. His wife died a number of years ago. The surviving children are two sons, Jacob, living on the home place, William, of Northfield, and one daughter, Mrs. Savory, of Williamstown. The funeral was held last Friday afternoon. The deceased conducted one of the best farms in Marshfield, but has been unable to do much work for the past year owing to a cancerous trouble.
