Brown Martin

Obituary of T. L. Martin, Wynne, Arkansas.

T. L. Martin, born March 15, 1840, died June 28, 1922, at Wynne, Ark. He moved to Arkansas in 1855, and enlisted in the 20th Arkansas Regiment in 1861. He was in the siege of Port Hudson, and after his exchange he served under Gen. Kirby Smith in the Trans-Mississippi Department, surrendering at Wittsburg, Ark., May 25, 1865.

"Uncle Tom," as he was called by all who knew him, was a good man and always looked on the bright side of life. He loved his fellow man. I was intimately associated with him for over fifty years and never heard him complain. He loved his sons and their wives. He was very feeble for six months before his death. We all feel that a good man has gone to rest under the shade of the trees.

(W. P. Brown, Commander and Adjutant, Marian Cogbill Camp U. C. V., No. 1316, Wynne, Ark.)
