Counties, New Hampshire Edited by D.

Nathaniel Martin, Esq., came to Loudon it was first taxed in 1808.
He was twice married and had a family of 9 children, named Rue, Jane,
Elisabeth and Anna (twins), Mary, Abigail, Nancy, Sally and Theophilus
B.. Esq. Martin was engaged often in town business, and was an important
and useful man of the day in which he lived. His name appears often upon
the town records as having been chosen to discharge some public duty,
which was carefully and satisfactorily performed.
Theophilus B. Martin, Esq., married Sally L. Rowell, and had a family
of four children, named Nathaniel (who died), Mary E., Abby and Nathaniel
E. But few men have ever lived in town who have been so frequently chosen
to positions of trust as Esq. Martin. He has represented town and the
Legislature, and been chosen as County Treasurer, besides performing a
large amount of probate and private business as a justice of the peace.
He early engaged in the calling of a schoolteacher, and continued in it
until the middle age of life with success. He was a member of the Church,
and was deeply interested in all matters pertaining to the welfare and
best interest of the public. He moved with his family to Concord, New
Hampshire where he died.
Nathaniel E. Martin, his son, obtained his education at the Concord high
school, and afterwards studied law with William E. Chase, Esq., after
which he opened an office in Concord, and is now connected with the firm
of Abin, Tappan and Martin. That success has attended his efforts which
is always the reward of labor and diligence in every calling in life.
