Martin V. Huff Dies; Lived at Cottonwood

Martin V. Huff, brother of Bill Huff, Grangeville, died at Whitefish, Mont., last Monday, February 12. He was a former resident of Cottonwood where he followed the trade of harness making.
The body is being shipped to Cottonwood to arrive Friday and services will be held from the Ailor Mortuary chapel at that place at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon. Rev. W.O. Benthin will officiate and burial will be in Cottonwood Cemetery.
Martin V. Huff was born at Miami, Missouri, September 6, 1887. He came to Idaho County in 1902, where he lived until 1917 when he moved to Bradley, Mont., then to Condon, and the last two years lived at Whitefish. In recent years, with the demands for harness dwindling, Mr. Huff had been working at shoe repairing. He was an invalid all his life, having never walked. He got about on his hands and knees and made his own way in the world.
Besides Bill Huff, two other brothers survive Laurence of Moscow and Roy of Alberta, Canada.
