Dropped Dead In A Yard

Timothy Martin Died suddenly On Saturday

He Had Been in Joseph Eschelbach's on Front Street and Stepped Out in the Yard - Found dying a Few Minutes later

Timothy Martin of Fair Haven was found in a dying condition in the rear of Joseph Eschelbach's saloon on Front street about half past five o'clock on Saturday afternoon. Dr. J. C. Rush was sent for but Martin died before he arrived. Dr. Rush said death was caused by heart disease. Mr. Eschelbach said that Martin had been around the hotel all day. He had acted queerly at times and Mr. Eschellbach had asked him if he felt all right. Martin said he did not feel very well and wanted to be left alone. No further attention was paid to him until he was found dying in the yard by T. E. Briggs of Monmouth street. The body was removed to the home of his father, John Martin of Fair Haven.

Mr. Martin was 34 years old. A widow and two small children survive him. The funeral was held yesterday morning at ten o'clock at St. James's church at Red Bank and the service was conducted by Rev. James A. Reynolds. The body was buried at Mt. Olivet cemetery at Headden's Corner. The funeral was a very large one.
