Birth: Nov., 1862
Buchanan County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jun. 14, 1921
Silver Peak
Esmeralda County
Nevada, USA

It was sad news which reached here Tuesday through a telegram received by Ben L. Helsley from Goldfield, Nevada, which announced the death at that place of Martin L. Spencer, former sheriff of this county and the nephew of Judge O. M. Spencer. The widow, Mrs. Della A. Spencer, lives at 1710 Faraon street. Two sons, Harold and John, also survive him. The deceased had spent almost all of his life here and was respected and honored by a very large circle of friends. His father was James L. (Fay) Spencer, a member of a pioneer family.

The telegram did not give much in the way of detail. His death occurred at Silver Peak near Goldfield, where Mr. Spencer was engaged in mining, and was the result of a heat stroke. The remains will be brought here for burial.
