Martin, Matthew J. (1840 - 5 MAR 1888)

Died, at his residence in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), on March 5, 1888, of erysipelas, Matthew J. Martin, aged 47.

M. J. Martin was born near Racine, Wis. in 1840 and came to this village five years ago from Eau Claire, where he had resided a number of years. For a long time he has been in poor health, but striving manfully to keep his family from want, going to his daily labor without murmur when utterly unfit to work. He was a quiet unassuming man, respected by all friends and acquaintances, and his family has the sincere sympathy of the whole community. He leaves a wife, with two little daughters and stepson, George Helfter, to mourn his demise, also a brother located at Raymond, Dakota, who was unable to be present at the funeral, which occurred at the Thorp Catholic Church on Wednesday morning, Rev. Father Untraut officiating, the remains being interred in the Thorp Catholic Cemetery.
