Death of D. C. McMartin

The sad news was received in the city yesterday of the death of a former Des Moines resident at Beaman, Mr. D. C. McMartin, who was a son-in-law of Judge C. C. Cole, and was an honored and respected member of the Polk county bar for several years. Mr. McMartin had a fine education, acquired in the eastern universities. He was a quiet reserved and cultured gentleman, and one who would never push himself forward. The success he attained was strictly upon his merits as a man and lawyer. Soon after removing to Des Moines from Beaman, he was elected justice of the peace for Des Moines township, and had his office during the term that he occupied the position at the identical location now occupied by Justice of the Peace E. L. Blake on Fifth street. After retiring from the office he formed a partnership with Judge Dietrick, which lasted until he left the city. About a year after that, he was justice eight years ago, he went to a Texas city and acquired a considerable equity in real estate, which realized a comfortable fortune. While in Texas, Mr. McMartin was taken with consumption, from which he never recoverd, and from which he died yesterday morning. About a year ago this time he went to Colorado in vain search of health, and a few months ago returned to Beaman, where resides his mother, there to die. The funeral will take place in Des Moines Tuesday afternoon. The news of his death was recieved by the members of the bar here with deepest sorrow.--State Register, Aug. 11th
