Death: 27 Jan 1854 in Rockbridge, Ozark County, Missouri
Burial: Ozark County, Missouri. Body was suppose to be moved to Hazelwood Cemetery, Greene County, Missouri in 1869. (?)
Occupation: 1833 First judge of Greene County, Missouri.
"Perhaps the most important event in the history of the county during the
first year of its existence as a county, was the first session of the
county court, held March 11-14, 1833, at the hous of John P. Campbell,
which stood on the present site of the town of Springfield. Previously,
on the 14th of February, Jeremiah N. Sloan, James Dollison, and Samuel
Martin, having been elected at an election held on the first Monday in
February, pursuant to a provison of the organization act, had been
commisioned justices of the county court by His Excellency Governor
Daniel Dunklin (John C. Edwards, Secretary of State)."
"February 23, John P. Cambell was appointed county clerk. The county
judges took the oath of office before Esq. A. J. Burnett, an acting
justice of the peace in and for the county. John D. Shannon had been
elected and commissioned sheriff." (158) Holcombe's History of Greene
County, Missouri.
Samuel G. Martin lived in the next sectiont to Samuel and brother Cowden
on James River at the present east border of Greene County, Missouri.
Cowden died of cholera in 1835 which he had contracted in Springfield. A
complete list of Cowden's children is found in his probate records.
Even thought the book by Blunt Martin says Samuel's body was move to
Hazelwood Cemetery after the Civil War, the people at the cemetery office
had no record of it and I didn't have time to search the extensive old
sections of the cemetery. The Ozarkin magazine had a list of Greene
County Pioneers in which it says S. G. Martin died in 1875 and he had
been born in Cabarrus County, North Carolina. I found a listing of dates
of burial in Hazelwood Cemetery and I found no Samuel Martin listed.
