DEATH CALLS PIONEER NEBRASKA LADY ON THE COAST ……….  Dated June 2, 1924

MRS. LUCY J. MARTIN passes away at San Jose, after an illness of some duration.

Another of the old time residents of Cass county who represents the fast disappearing ranks of the pioneers of the great west, was called to her last reward when MRS. LUCY J. MARTIN passed away Thursday night at 11:30 at her home in San Jose, California, at the age of 84 years.

For some years past, Mrs. Martin has been living on the west coast where the milder climate was more suitable for her health and there she has, up to a short time ago, been enjoying excellent health, but of late she has felt very much the burdens of her years and been gradually failing until she gently fell asleep in the rest that knows no awakening. 

The deceased lady was a native of Montier, Canton Berne, Switzerland, where she was born January 12, 1839.   Her maiden name was LUCY J. PANGUARD and when a young child, her parents with their little family, prepared to leave their native land for the new world and sailing from LAHarve, France, they found in the course of a few weeks that they were in the new land of America.   The little family located in the state of Indiana, where in 1851, the father died and left the care of the family on the mother.

Here it was that LUCY PANGUARD was reared to womanhood and on May 3, 1857, at Fort Wayne, Indiana, she was united in marriage to C. J. MARTIN, a young man who had also a few years previous come to America from his native land of France to dwell in the land of the free.   

In the fall of 1857, Mr. and Mrs. Martin came west to Nebraska and located in the vicinity of Plattsmouth, where Mr. Martin engaged in farming and continued in active work on the farm until 1885 when the family removed to Plattsmouth to make their home.   Mr. and Mrs. Martin continued to make their home here until 1906, when they moved to California, where the husband and father was called to his reward.  

Mrs. Martin is survived by three children:

            CHARLES L. MARTIN of this city

            MRS. MAY N. CREAMER

            MRS. LILLIE FOSTER of San Jose, California.

At the time of her death, MRS. A. H. DUXBURY,  a granddaughter, was visiting at San Jose and was able to spend the last days with the aged grandmother.   Mrs. Martin was the last of the original charter members of the First Presbyterian Church of this city.   

(C. J. MARTIN was CONSTANTIN THEODULE MARTIN, born Dec. 12, 1832, son of JOSEPH HENRI MARTIN and JEANNE FRANCOIS MAUNIER)
