From Jotham Martin's obituary-
Old Settlers pass away. Jotham Martin passes quietly away to his home, Saturday morning after a lingering illness. Jotham Martin was born in Greene County, Pennsylvania, October 8, 1818 and died in Blue Hill, Nebraska, April 20, 1907, aged 88 years, 6 months, and 12 days. During his infancy, his parents moved to West Virginia, where he grew to manhood, and was married to Miss Rebecca Clegg at Moundsville, Virginia, March 12, 1842. To this union thirteen children were born, five of whom have passed to the great beyond, and the remaining eight were here to attend the last sad rites of their departed father. They are Presley of Minonk, Illinois, John M. of Vancouver, Washington, Euclid of Omaha, Nebraska, Joshua, George W. and J. K. of Blue Hill, Nebraska, Mary Sanson of Wilcox, Nebraska, and Mrs. Esther Trowbridge of Blue Hill, Nebraska. His wife is also left to mourn his departure. From West Virginia he moved to Minonk, Illinois, in 1861 where he remained until 1884, when he came west with his family and located at Blue Hill where he has since resided.
Funeral Services were conducted at the residence Monday afternoon at 10:30 o'clock in charge of Rev. Hummel of Red Cloud, assisted by Rev. Martin of Blue Hill. Many friends attended to pay their last respects.
Mr. Martin has always been an upright and influential citizen, in Illinois serving in a number of places of trust and in Nebraska several terms as supervisor from his town.
The family has the sympathy of their many friends. Blue Hill Nebraska Leader, April 26, 1907.
