Memories From Earlington

This Mattie Helen Francis 1920 photo is of her father Walter Martin (along w/seated Dick Wilson) in his office. Martin was printer and reporter for the Bee. He enlisted in the Spanish-American War in l889 at the age of 15 or 16 and was shipped to Cuba with the sad refrain of "My Old Ky Home" being played at the docks.
