Obituary with surnames HARNESS, HUGHEY, MARTIN submitted by Melissa Antos. Date of death Sunday, August 28, 1932
Obituary - T. W. Martin
Thomas Warring Martin was born near Linwood, Kans., April 8, 1872, and departed this life August 28, 1932, at St. Luke's hospital, Kansas City, Mo.
He was the son of Edward Martin and Ann Harness Martin.
His early life was spent on a farm. He received his schooling in the common schools of Leavenworth county and at the Kansas State Normal School of Emporia.
On November 2, 1900, he was united in marriage with Myrtle Hughey at Lawrence, Kans. To this union were born four children, Murray E. Martin, now residing at Saginaw, Mich.; Helen Lois Martin of the home address; Opal A. Martin and Elsie M. Martin, who died in infancy. He is survived by his widow, two children, Murray and Helen Lois, a grand daughter Nancy Marie Martin, and one brother, Edward Martin, of Salt Lake, Utah.
He united with the Methodist Episcopal church of Linwood in 1903, and was affiliated with the following lodges; Linwood Camp of the Modern Woodmen of America, the Linwood Blue lodge of the Masonic Order, the Lawrence Consistory of Scotish Rite, and the Linwood order of Eastern Star.
As a young man Mr. Martin engaged in school teaching in which work he continued for a number of years in the common schools of this vicinity. Many of those gathered to pay their last respects were former pupils. After his marriage he engaged in farming, but continued to keep up his work as a teacher. In 1905 the family retired from the farm and took up its residence in Linwood, where the family has continued to reside.
For a number of years Mr. Martin was the manager of the Linwood Telephone exchange and later became cashier of the Linwood State bank which position he held for a number of years. In 1922 he sold his interest in the bank and bought the telephone exchange at Allen, Kans., which he operated for several years. For the past seven years he has been the bookkeeper and cashier of the Tenth Street Garage of Kansas City, Mo.
Mr. Martin was a great lover of nature. He enjoyed the culture of garden plants and flowers, and was greatly interested in birds and bees. Although he had received no commercial training in school he was an accountant of marked ability. It was his ambition to spend the last years of his life on a farm where he could engage in the culture of trees, garden plants and flowers. He once said to the writer, "I like to see plants grow and enjoy making them grow."
Tom Martin, as he was familiarly known, was a faithful husband, a kind indulgent father and a dependable friend. He enjoyed his home and his neighbors. In his passing, Linwood has lost a citizen who has left his impress upon the community. His town and the lives of the people with whom he mingled are better because he lived.
He labored unselfishly to make his surroundings better. He was public spirited and interested in everything that pertained to the material and moral betterment of his home community.
Truthfully may we say of him, well done thou good and faithful servant, enter into thy reward.
