Biography

George Joash Martin, the seventh child on of William and Cordelia Martin, was born on 28th November 1843.

On 11th October 1866, he married Ann Easton and they spent the first six years of their marriage at Burrell Creek. In 1872, they moved to a property near Krambach, which they named "Orange Hill". George cleared and worked the land with the aid of his bullock team and also worked for the Shire, making and maintaining roads in the district. He helped in the surveying of the original main road including the "Krambach Cutting."

As a pioneer of the Krambach district, George worked hard and long on his own property and was involved in many community projects as well. The Krambach School was opened in 1880 and George, with Robert Easton, was responsible for the erection of the sawn-slab building. He was also a Director of the Upper Wallamba Dairy Company for many years.

The Martin family had a strong commitment to the Wesleyan faith and Ann and George, who was a Lay Preacher, often held Services in their home.

These community-minded early pioneers were highly respected and held in high esteem by the local people.

George died on 28th September 1914 and Ann died in 1926.
