Death came at the Culp ranch, where Mrs. Martin was at the family’s summer home. Mrs. Martin was a daughter of the Late Mr. & Mrs. William Hatton, who came here as bride and groom and were among Carmel Valley’s earliest white settlers. She grew up here and was educated in local schools. One of the charter members and a past president of the Auxiliary of Monterey Peninsula Post of the American Legion, she was also a charter member and past president of the Home Department of Carmelo Farm Bureau and a past president of the board of trustees of Carmelo school.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Martin leaves a daughter, Mrs. Leonard Williams, and a son, Hatton Martin; four brothers, Frank D. Hatton, Edward G. Hatton, Howard Hatton and William Hatton; and one sister, Miss Harriet Helen Hatton. She was a sister of the late Dr. Sarah McAulay. There are three grandchildren and several nephews and nieces.
