Martin was born on November 22, 1658 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts. He was the son of Joseph and Joanna Foote Kellogg. He moved with his family to Hadley, Hampshire, Massachusetts when he was very young. He married Anna Hinsdale on December 10, 1684, probably in Hatfield, Hampshire. Martin and Anna had two children, born in Hadley, but Anna died five days after the birth of the second, a daughter named after her mother. Martin soon married again, on February 27, 1691, in Deerfield, Franklin, Massachusetts, Sarah Dickenson, widow of Samuel Lane. Martin and Sarah had four children, born in Deerfield.

On February 29, 1704, during Queen Anne's War, a French and Indian force under the command of Jean-Baptiste Hertel de Rouville, consisting of 47 Canadiens and 200 Abenaki, Kanienkehaka (Mohawk), and Wyandot, as well as a few Pocumtuck attacked Deerfield, burning most of the town, killing 56 colonists, including 22 men, 9 women, and 25 children. They took 112 captives that included women and children. Martin Kellogg and four children (Martin Jr, Joseph, Joanna, and Rebecca) were captured and forced to march 300 miles to Kahnawake near Montreal, Canada. It was a months-long trek and many died along the way; some were killed because they could not keep up. During the raid, Sarah Dickinson Kellogg hid in the cellar with her youngest son Jonathan (1698 - 1704). The Indians heard the youngest child crying, found and killed him, then set fire to the house. Sarah escaped with her step-daughter Anna Kellogg (1689 - 1781). This attack is known as the "Deerfield Massacre". Martin was redeemed and allowed to return home after a couple of years. Later, three of his children were ransomed and allowed to return. His daughter Joanna, who was eleven at the time of the attack, chose to stay in Canada and marry there.

Martin and Sarah relocated to Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut, where Sarah died in 1722. Martin married again, but had no children with his third wife, Sarah Huxley, widow of James Barlow and Ebenezer Smith. Martin died in Suffield on October 5, 1732 and is buried there, location unknown.
