APRIL 14, 1899

Martin J. Collins

Martin J. Collins, a well-known pioneer of Idaho County, died in Lewiston on April 12, 1899.  He was engaged in the merchandise business in Warren for many years, and left that camp about ten years ago to reside in Lewiston where he ran a large livery stable.  Some few years since he married the widow of the later August Benson, the best known packer in this section in the days before wagon roads were built.

Mr. Collins was a just and upright man and his death will be sincerely mourned by his associates through the mining camps of this county.  Peace to his ashes.
