February 28, 1898 - Vernon Journal
Obituary
Died at his home in Vernon, Jennings County, Indiana, Thursday, Feb. 17th, 1898, at 8 o'clock and 30 minutes, after a protracted illness Harrison Martin, age 62 years 10 months and 11 days. Again has the silent messenger death been among us calling from our midst one of Jennings county's oldest and respected citizens.
The deceased was born in Columbus, Illinois, April 6th, 1835 and was consequently 62 years 10 months and 11 days old at the time of his death. The parents of the deceased died when he was but 12 years of age, thus he was left a orphan boy to contend with the trials and hardships which ones life, who have no parents to advise and give them council. He came to Jennings county soon after the death of his parents and lived with Henry Carney, of this county as one of the family until he was 21 years of age. In 1860 he was united in marriage to Miss Jane Ellen Royal, daughter of Dr. Royal of this county. To this union was born, 7 children, 5 of which are living, 4 daughters and one son, all of which are present upon this sad occasion. They are left to mourn with their mother, the loss they have all sustained by the death of a loving and affectionate father. The friendless always found a warm friend, the needy a generous helper, the afflicted an ardent sympathizer, but like all, however great he had to yield to the inevitable summons of the master, his children mourn the loss of a true father, his widow of an affectionate husband and his neighbors invaluable citizen.
Funeral services were conducted at the M. E. Church on Saturday afternoon by Rev. Grimes, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Vernon Cemetery. A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled,
God in his wisdom has recalled
The boom his love had given,
And though the body molders here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.
