History of Martin County, Indiana by Harry Q. Holt
History of Martin County, Indiana by Harry Q. Holt

A reprint of the original book copyright 1966 and reprinted in 2006 by the Martin County Historical Society. The first history of the county (Volume I) was originally published in 1953, and contained primarily archival and other elusive information. Many historical facts had to be omitted from the first volume because of inadequate funds. This unpublished material has been supplemented by additional information and is in Volume II.

A valuable and interesting section of this volume is the space devoted to sketches of representative citizens within and without the county, whose records deserve preservation as a result of their worth, effort and accomplishment. Names and dates have been interspersed with interesting facts of achievements and events. The volume contains several sketches which involve family relationships tracing back to sterling forebears who settled in the area.

A Partial Autobiography of the Author is included as well. The purpose of having the autobiography of the author in the volume is to present a factual and realistic picture of how some poorer people lived seventy years ago. The story depicts the success of the author in obtaining an education by overcoming numerous hardships through his own exertions. It may develop an inspiring and ennobling desire among other youths, who are experiencing similar adversities, and encourage them to further their educational efforts. The author realizes that many persons have accomplished far more than he has. Any claim to success he may have achieved is that of inspiring and encouraging boys and girls to use their inherent talents to become successful men and women.
