John Henderson Martin was born in MacCoupin county, Ills., May 29, 1831. He passed away March 20, 1914, at the age of 82 years, 9 months and 21 days. November 10, 1853, he was married to Malinda Amburn at Keokuk, Iowa. To them were born ten children: Isaac R., Eda J., Jacob H., Lizzie M., Lucy M., Lida J., Sadie A., Moses L., Roy A., and William, who died while his father was serving in the army. Roy died August 7, 1898. The other eight children survive their father. Malinda Amburn Martin, the wife and mother, passed away June 26, 1904. Mr. Martin is survived by a sister, Mrs. Sarah Edie of Wichita, Ks., and a brother, Edwin Martin of Los Angeles, Calif.

John H. Martin enlisted in the union army from Keokuk county, Iowa Oct. 9, 1862. He received an honorable discharge at Fort Kearney, Neb., Nov. 24, 1865. He entered the service as a private in Co. F, 7th regiment, Ia. Vol. Cav. He was promoted from private soldier to corporal,and from corporal to sergeant. The regiment to which he belonged was kept in the west where it did honorable service.

Mr. Martin lived in Pawnee City during the past twenty years. He was known and loved by many. Because of his physical condition he was unable to get about much for some years, and during the winter he was closely confined to his home. He was converted about 40 years ago. The church records show that he united with the Methodist church of Pawnee City Feb. 23, 1896, under the pastorate of J. H. Presson. He loved the church. As he was a faithful soldier for his country, so he was a faithful soldier in the army of the Lord.
