      BIOGRAPHY: "Martin was born in 1806 in Btristol County, Massachusetts. When he was young, his family moved to Vermont where he learned the trade of a blacksmith. In 1833, his neihbors were assisting him in a house raising. Martin had heard of the preacher Joseph Smith and suggested to his friends that they go and break up a meeting that the young Prophet washolding in the nearby woods.
      After their work was done, Martin and his neighbors went to the meeting intending to cause a disturbance. But the Prophet Joseph Smith had not spoken more than five minutes when Martin received a thorough assurance of the divinity of his mission. He was converted on the spot and baptized by Lyman E. Johnson. Martin traveled with the Kirtland company and helped to build the temple in Nauvoo, Illinois. He had some musical talent and played in the Nauvoo Legion Brass Band at its dedication. As the saints moved west, he was called to stay at Winter Quarters to help as a blacksmith Later, Martin arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in September of 1848." Heather T. Silver, Syracuse, Utah as quoted in the Church News, Deseret News, October 29, 2005
