Martin A. Boots
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1777
Death: Sep. 13, 1842

Chief Pioneer of Grant County, Indiana. Martin made the first land entry in Grant County in 1825. He purchased the land from the government of the United States.

S/O Adam & Barbara Eve

*After Mary died Martin married Nancy*

*Reinterred from Boots Cem to IOOF*

When Martin Boots and David Branson each donated thirty acres of land in 1831 for the site of Marion, they chose a location on the left bank of the swift, scenic river which the Miami Indians had named "Mississinewa," their word for "laughing waters." With the formation of Grant County in 1831, Marion was established as the county seat and its future was assured. The river provided water supply, power, and drainage and it bequeathed a natural beauty as it flowed at the base of hills that marched away on either side.
