If I remember the story correctly that I was
told: Daniel Martin,Sr., while carrying in firewood, tripped & fell on the
front porch, injuring himself. This was
supposedly the log cabin of his son, Otis, on Courtois Creek.
George Breakfield sat up with Daniel that night. At around midnight
Daniel asked, "What time is it?" They told him & he replied, "Well,
maybe I'll make it till morning then." Those were the last words he
ever said. He died the next day - 28 Feb. 1915. He is buried in
Shoal Creek Cemetery, Huzzah, Crawford County, Missouri.
