    MARTIN W. FURMAN was born in Gaines township, Tioga county, Pennsylvani a, August 30, 1829, a son of William and Mary (Waldorff) Furman. His father came from Sunbury, Northumberland county, to Gaines township, Tioga cou nty, about 1806, and settled on the south bank of Pine creek, a mile and a half east of the site of Gaines. He had been in this county several t imes prior to his final settlement; was a noted hunter and was employed wi th the surveyors of the Bingham estate. He was the father often children, and died in 1861. His widow survived him about two years. Martin W. was reared on the homestead farm, and was trained to habits of frugality and industry. In March, 1849, he married Eunice J. Dartt, a daughter of John and Elizabeth Dartt, of Delmar township. The following children were born to this union, all of whom arrived at maturity before they died: Evelina, who married Daniel Furman, of Delmar; Elizabeth, wife of Fred. Nobles, of the same township; Delphine, who married John Ackley, of Sabinsville; George Hurlburt, who married Julia Weeks; Manning, who married Hattie Dunbar, of Brookland, Potter county; Cyrus, of Cross Forks, Potter county; Julius, of Gaines township; Daniel, who lives in Corry, Erie county; Aurilla, wife of Charles McCoy, of Corry; Annie N., wife of W. Nathan Lad d, of Gaines township; John Norton, of Brookland, Potter county, and Julia, wife of John Behrman, of Gaines township. About 1849 Mr. Furman bought a farm in Delmar, on which he lived up to 1861. He then sold it and ret urned to the old homestead to care for his parents in their declining years. After their death he took charge of the farm and cultivated it up to 1893, when he sold it and purchased his present homestead. Though farming h as been his principal occupation, he has devoted considerable attention to lumber jobbing, in which he has been fairly successful. Mrs. Furman died in 1877, and about three years after her death, he married for his second wife, Viancy Hacket, of Sabinsville. She became the mother of t wo children who died in infancy. She died and June 30, 1891, he married Sarah J. Strait, a daughter of Stephen and Mabel (Homes) Strait, of Clymer township, Tioga county. In politics, he is a Republican, and is recognized as one of the substantial farmers of his native township.
