Birth: 19 Nov 1776 in Mecklenberg County, North Carolina
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. Cemetery says they have no listing of a Samuel Martin, so he must still be buried in the Martin/Hawkins Cemetery.
