Lester Wallace Martin
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1889
Arkansas, USA
Death: Nov. 9, 1962
Las Vegas
San Miguel County
New Mexico, USA

Lester was the son of Robert Martin, born 1841 in Ohio and Izora Estelle Waldo, born 07 Jun 1865 in Tennessee. She died 26 Aug 1899 in Arkansas. Lester spent most of his life in this state hospital.
This burial was transcribed from documents provided by The Mental Health Association of New Mexico. That organization is heroically attempting to restore the NM State hospital Cemetery grounds which was destroyed by abandonment by the hospital to the BLM. The BLM then allowed cattle to roam the cemetery area. At one time in history, a mechanical weed hog ripped the headstones into pieces. What remains is of the New Mexico State Hospital Cemetery, now called the Las Vegas Medical Center, is a disgrace.
