Birth: Nov. 10, 1867
Saxony (Sachsen), Germany
Death: Jun. 29, 1948
South Kingstown
Washington County
Rhode Island, USA

Martin was born in Zeulenroda, Vogtland, Saxony, Germany. He immigrated to the United States, state of Illinois in 1894 and was naturalized in 1906. He married Charlotte Ann Searing Lindsey as her second husband in 1908.

He lived most of his life after his marriage in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island, USA. With Charlotte, he had one son and four daughters. They are Martin Herman Diptmar, Charlotte A Diptmar, Dorothy A Diptmar, Eva P. Diptmar, and Ethel Emma Diptmar.

Martin was a farmer most of his American life, although he originally came to the United States to work in the Silk Stocking industry. Martin was a large man of stature, with a full beard and a deep voice. He continued to work his farm, even in his later years, and it was remembered for its large field of strawberries.

There is a bit of a mystery about Martin. He would receive letters from Germany every so often and would make a trip to New York, telling his wife and children he was going to meet family who was coming to America. Since the letters were in German, nobody else in the home was able to read them. He would go to New York but never returned with any relatives. He led his family to believe he had helped the new arrivals get settled in New York but they themselves never met any of these "new" relatives.
