Esther was single and had a twin brother, Henning J. Martin, who was married and lived in New York. Henning passed away in Oneonta, New York, on December 17th, 1992, just twelve days after Esther. Esther was like a god-mother to my husband who grew up in Selah, WA in the '60s and 70's, teaching him Bible verses and baking him rice pudding. Binghamton, NY Press reports Henning served in Herkimer and at Bridgehampton as superintendent of schools from 1940-1956. In 1958 he became Administrative Assistant for Business of the Consolidated School District of Greater Oneonta. Re resigned in 1964 due to "poor health". He did continue on as part-time tax collector. He is also a past master of Herkimer Lodge F&AM (per Utica NY Daily Press 1964). He was a member of Kiwanis in Herkimer, serving as treasurer for the Mohawk Valley.

1899 - 1992 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Esther's lifetime.

In 1899, in the year that Esther E Martin was born, on February 14th, the first voting machines were approved by Congress for use in federal elections. Several states were already using voting machines in their elections and the Federal government was finally convinced of their safety and accuracy.

In 1930, when she was 31 years old, on August 6th, N.Y. Supreme Court Judge Joseph Crater went through papers in his office, destroyed some of them, withdrew all his money from the bank - $5,150, sold his stock, met friends at a restaurant for dinner and disappeared after getting into a taxi (or walking down the street - his friends' testimony later changed). His disappearance was reported to the police on September 3rd - almost a month later. His wife didn't know what happened, his fellow Justices had no idea, and his mistresses (he had several) said that they didn't know. While his disappearance was front page news, his fate was never discovered and after 40 years the case was closed, still without knowing if Crater was dead or alive.

In 1942, Esther was 43 years old when on November 28th at 10:15p, a nightclub in Boston, the Cocoanut Grove, caught fire. The origins of the fire are unknown but it killed 492 people - the deadliest nightclub fire in U.S. history. Hundreds more were injured. The disaster was so shocking that it replaced World War II in the headlines and lead to reforms in safety standards and codes.

In 1985, by the time she was 86 years old, on March 15th, the first internet domain name was registered - Symbolics, Inc., a spinoff of the MIT AI Lab, was a computer manufacturer headquartered in Massachusetts. The company no longer exists and the domain name was sold 25 years later.

In 1992, in the year of Esther E Martin's passing, on February 1st, US President George Bush and President Boris Yeltsin of Russia jointly announced an end to the Cold War, proclaiming a new era of "friendship and partnership". At Camp David in Maryland, they reviewed ways to jointly reduce nuclear arms and support reforms in Russia but no agreement was reached at that meeting.
