" Dr. George Martin, third son of Christian Frederick Martin, was born May 4th

1779, in Macungie township, Lehigh Co., Pa. In 1805 he removed to Whitpain

Township (a short distance below the village of Blue Bell), and commenced

the practice of medicine. He removed to Whitemarsh in 1814, where he

resided and continued the practice until 1836, having been one of the most

successful practitioners of the county for thirty-one years. He then

removed to Philadelphia, where he continued the practice of his profession

until within three or four years of the time of his death, which occurred

on December 8, 1862. He was buried in the cemetery of the Union Church of

Whitemarsh on December 16, 1862."
