Biography

Birth

Martin was born about 1876.

Name

His Hocąk name was KeeMeeNunkKah, which is for Kīmį̄ną́ka, "He Seats Himself", from , a reflexive suffix; mį̄ną́k, "to sit, he sits"; and -ka, a definite article suffix used in personal names. Given the surname "Greensnake" we may conclude that Kīmį̄ną́ka was a member of the Snake Clan.

Marriage

Martin's first marriage was with Dora Wallace Sr. They had the following children:

Wilbur (b. 1909)
James = Joe (b. 25 August 1911) (1913 census)

Wilbur was present in the 1910 census, but missing thereafter, leading to the conclusion that he died in 1910 or 1911. In the 1911 and 1912 censuses, Dora Sr. is described as "des-wf" (deserted wife).

Death

After 1915, neither Martin nor Dora are mentioned in the censuses, and their children in 1916 and 1917 have been adopted by George Greensnake, their presumed paternal uncle. It seems likely, therefore, that in 1915 or 1916, both Martin and his wife Dora had died.
