Martin, C. H.
C. H. Martin – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – November 20, 1911 – From Saturday's Daily – Death of C. H. Martin – With the passing of C. H. Martin at Pueblo last week, Leadville lost another of her old pioneers who has been here since 1878 and has given his efforts to making the camp what it is today and what it has been in the past. The cause of Mr. Martin's death was dropsy, from which he has been ailing since last June. He went to Pueblo three weeks ago in hopes that his health might be improved from treatment in Clark's sanitarium. He died on Wednesday and the remains were yesterday sent to Leadville for interment. C. H. Martin was born in 1851 in Kalamazoo, Mich. His parents both died when he was still a child and the boy from that time had to make his own living. Through his own efforts he obtained an education in the schools of Constantine, Mich., and for a number of years taught in that state and in Kansas. At the age of twenty-seven he came to Colorado and settled in Leadville where he has lived continuously for the past thirty-three years. Mr. Martin was for the most part connected with the smelters of Leadville. He was first employed by the late Gov. Grant, who in the early days was operating a smelter in this district. He later served as foreman for the American Smelting and Refining company until it closed in 1893. The old pioneer was a man of steady and domestic habits and sought his pleasure in life with his wife and family. Since the time he married Lydia McDonald in 1887, he was never known to spend an evening out of the company either of his wife or his daughters. The deceased is survived by his wife and two daughters, Helen and Lucile. Both are graduates of the Leadville High school and at present Helen is attending the State university at Boulder. He also leaves behind two sisters, Helen Martin, of Denver and Mrs. F. E. Austin, of Beresford, S. D.; and a brother, William Martin, of Soldier, Idaho. Mr. Martin was a member of the Congregational church. The funeral will take place from the Presbyterian church on Sunday afternoon. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – November 27, 1911 – Around the City As Seen By Our Reporters on Their Daily Rounds – From the Herald Democrat and the Evening Chronicle – From Monday's Daily – Funeral of the Late C. H. Martin – Rev. David McMartin of the Presbyterian church yesterday conducted services over the remains of the late C. H. Martin. The funeral took place from the church of which Rev. McMartin is pastor. The services were attended by a large number of friends of the deceased. The persons who had been associated with Mr. Martin during the time he was employed at the smelter were present in a body to pay their last respects to their friend who will work with them no more. A large number of flowers were received in token of the sympathy for the survivors of the deceased and respect for the old pioneer who passed away. Rev. McMartin spoke of the consolation that is to be drawn from the belief that there is another world to which dear ones pass to wait for those they have left behind. This thought, he said, is especially consoling to the bereaved ones when they possess the knowledge that the departed person has led a Christian life, such as Mr. Martin's. The choir, consisting of Mrs. Robertson, Miss Meyers, Mr. Jennings and Mr. Volkeri, sang “Abide With Me.” Mrs. Robertson sang a solo, “Face to Face.” The remains were interred in the G. A. R. plot of Evergreen cemetery.

Martin, Jennie
Jennie Martin - Colorado Weekly Chieftain - June 8, 1876 - Shot By A Negro - Tragic Death of Miss Jennie Martin - In our issue of Sunday morning we noticed the killing at Cheyenne of Miss Jennie Martin, daughter of Wm. Martin, formerly of South Pueblo. The facts of this terrible affair are given as condensed from the Cheyenne Sun: Miss Jennie Martin was the name of the victim. She and a friend, a Miss Montgomery, left home to attend a musical rehearsal at the Catholic Church. They were accompanied by a little girl, daughter of George B. Stimpson, brother-in-law of Miss Martin. With the child between them the young ladies sauntered slowly down the street. There were a good many people on the street, and the girls were jostled at every step by pedestrians. Just after turning a corner the report of a pistol startled everybody, and Miss Martin fell to the sidewalk, clutching in her fall the hand of the child and pulling the latter down with her. The bullet had entered the right temple and lodged in the brain. The body was removed to Mr. Stimpson's house. Miss Montgomery remembered that some boys, white and black, were playing: romping, and running at the corner when the party came up, and that they ran away when the pistol-shot was fired. The police hunted up the juveniles, and each and every one testified that one of their number, a Negro lad named James Butler, fired the shot which killed Miss Martin. The murderer is only twelve years of age, and has been known as a "hoodlum". He had been heard to make the threat, some days previous, that he would "fix that girl" (meaning Miss Martin), because she was the means of his being chastised for some misconduct at school. The boy was lodged in jail. The victim of his vengeance was in her sixteenth year, and had a bright mind and a beautiful face.
