(Grand Haven Tribune)

Mrs. AUGUSTA MARTIN, wife of VINCENT A. MARTIN, former state representative and an official of the defunct Grand Rapids, Grand Haven & Muskegon Railway, died Sunday at her home in Fruitport after two years' illness, the last eight months of which were spent in bed.
The deceased was a member of the Spring Lake Eastern Star and the Fruitport Congregational Church. She was known to a large circle of friends in the village, where she lived for many years, and in Spring Lake and Grand Haven.
She was born MARY AUGUSTA NEWMAN, April 2, 1859, at Grand Island, N. Y., and came to Ottawa county when nine years old, settling in Polkton township. She was married for the first time to GEORGE KINNEY, who died in 1918. The year following she married Mr. MARTIN.
Surviving are three sons: CHARLES KINNEY, Fruitport postmaster; WILLIAM A. KINNEY, former superintendant of Oval, Michigan, state park; and WARREN KINNEY of Detroit; two stepchildren, MAY MARTIN of Muskegon Heights and CHARLOTTE MARTIN of Grand Rapids; one brother, CHARLES NEWMAN of Lansing; two sisters, Mrs. LOUISE TRUMAN of Lansing and Mrs. WILLIAM CUSICK of Polkton; five grandchildren also survive.
Funeral services were held Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. from the Congregational Church at Fruitport with Reverands C. H. Meeker and G. H. Coman of Muskegon in charge. Burial was in Nunica Cemetery with the Spring Lake Eastern Stars in charge.
[Handwritten date of Feb. 16, 1934-date may be when posted in paper]
