MARTIN HERMAN AUSTIN

Martin Austin married Harriet E. Dunbar in 1892 At Willings, Allegany, New York. They lived in Coneville, PA where he worked in the lumbering business. They had four girls there before he died in 1905 at age 36.

He was killed when a tree fell on him at work (Mom told me this) or, he fell out of a wagon and froze to death after a night on the town (my brother Art`s story). Lillie has an obituary which states that he died at home in Coneville of acute paralysis. Her mother (Harriet) told her that his sickness resembled polio. This would be most likely to be true as Lillie was about 13 at the time and would be aware of the facts (Mom was only 5 at that time).

Their children were:

Lillie Harriet Austin Arland
Lettie B. Austin Clark
Leona Hazel Austin Covert
Laura Mildred Austin Sawyer

After their father`s death, only Laura, the youngest daughter stayed with her mother Hattie. Lettie went to live with the Hitchcox family of Friendship, NY. Lillie went to live with her father`s sister, Gertrude in Hammondsport, NY. Leona went to live with Etta Densmore in Elmira, NY - later with her sister Lily and Seel Arland after their marriage.

At the time of his death, the notice listed six sisters and a brother:

Mrs F.S. Blackman (Anna) of Coneville, PA (grandmother of Dick Blackman)
Mrs. C.J. Jenkins (Mertie) of Hammondsport, NY
Mrs. Herman Lobeck (Gertrude) of Hammondsport, NY
Mrs. John Hunt (Alice) of Hornellsville, NY

Mrs. Bert Rigby of Coneville, PA
Mrs. John Haskins of Coneville, PA

Mr. Andrew Austin of Hull, PA
