Death of "Bob" Martin

A terrible misfortune has befallen our friends, Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Martin, in the death of their beloved little infant son "Bob". The news of the demise of this child, whom everyone loved and cherished, for his gentleness and bright intellect, filled Hahnville and its surroundings with deep sorrow and sincere sympathy for the bereaved family. May the Almighty extend a helping hand to our friends, and lend them the courage to stand the fatal blow with fortitude and resignation.

St. Charles Herald, 25 August 1883
