DEATH OF MRS. JENNIE MARTIN
Mrs. Martin was known and much esteemed in Washington and the circumstances of her husband's death caused great sympathy for her. Her own demise coming so close upon that of her husband's is peculiarly saddening to her friends. Her little children, a girl five years old, and two boys younger, are bereft of parental protection at a very tender age. Mrs. Martin was buried last Thursday in the family log at her home in Virginia, and her aged parents have taken the little orphans under their care.
It is a singular coincidence that Mrs. and Mrs. Martin's deaths occurred while each was almost on the threshold of the childhood's home. The couple resided at 915 North Capitol street in this city.
