Joseph William Martin was born in Ireland in 1843. He was six years old when he immigrated with his family to America. He grew up in Mercer County, Illinois. [1][2] He was registered with the draft for the Civil War in 1863, in Mercer County, Illinois. His draft registration log indicates previous service in the Irish Brigade.[3] He attended a boy’s preparatory school called Kemper Hall, at Griswold College in Davenport, Iowa in 1868-69.[4]

Joseph married Susan Beard in 1870.[5] Sometime shortly after, they moved to Kansas where Joe became a farmer near Ladore. They had four children.
