William Povall Martin was born September 13, 1905 to William Pitt & Corrie Povall Martin. He was husband to Carrie Alabama Brown Martin. He passed away from congestive heart failure on May 9, 1963.

From what my relatives have told me, he was a very striking, large man and had a personality that was even larger! I seem to recall my Great Aunt Carrie, his widow, telling me they owned a toy store together, at some point. She divulged to me he loved children, although they never had any. His death certificate states his occupation as Real Estate, and from what I remember, he was a very smart businessman.

I do know that he was sorely missed by all, when he passed. Everyone spoke very highly of him as a wonderful human being with a kind, and warm-hearted disposition. I remember seeing pictures of him when I was a child. He appeared as a gentle giant with a wide and happy smile.
I will look through family pictures and try to find a picture to post, as well, to do his memorial justice.

I just know he was truly missed by all who knew him.
