Biography

A descendant of George Martyn of Salisbury, Mass.

He is a graduate of Rochester High School and a graduate of Randolph Agriculture School (Vermont technical) He acted as a tester for the Dairy Herd Improvement Association. He had his own farm in West Haven, Vermont in the 1940s, but lost it to hard times. He took his young family to Connecticut and went to work at the Scovil Manufacturing Company (a brass foundry) in Waterbury, Connecticut. He tried several times to move back to Vermont but was unable to make a decent living for his family here. Vermont being at that time a very rural and economically depressed state.
