Services Wednesday, Oct. 5, 3 p.m. Home Undertaking Company. -- Information courtesy of Margaret Easthope (file in possession of Friends of the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery) According to Martin Paup, a grandson and namesake, Martin was born in York County, PA and about 1860 was indentured as a servant for five years to a farmer who was cruel to him. After a fight with the farmer he ran away and was hunted as a fugitive. He joined the infantry in 1863 under an assumed name, and then re-enlisted in 1864 in the cavalry. After the war, about 1868-69 he went overland by ox train to San Francisco and then north by boat to Puget Sound. In 1870 he signed on as engine room fireman on the "Politkofsky" an originally-Russian gun boat converted to a tow boat and worked his way up to chief engineer. He worked in the Alaskan gold fields, where he found no gold, but did well by hauling potatoes for other miners. Returning in 1874, and while enroute by boat from Victoria, BC to Seattle, he noticed a pretty "brown-haired girl" on the vessel and got himself introduced to her the next day. He returned to his previous job on the "Politkofsky" but kept up his romance from its base at Port Madison. In 1877 he and Ella McGroarty (whose father Patric had served in the 17th Wisconsin Infantry) were married in Seattle, but made their home in Port Madison. In 1887 he "left the sea." He bought property on Bainbridge Island in 1894, and in 1895 moved his family to Seattle, where he carried the flag in many veterans' parades almost up to the time of his death. Obtained from his find a grave memorial. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=5101731&PIpi=34478839

Martin Paup was born on 3 Oct 1846
Martin Paup was 13 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.

Martin Paup was 15 years old when American Civil War: Fort Sumter surrenders to Confederate forces. The American Civil War was a war fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865. As a result of the long-standing controversy over slavery, war broke out in April 1861, when Confederate forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, shortly after U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated. The nationalists of the Union proclaimed loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States, who advocated for states' rights to expand slavery.

Martin Paup was 31 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.

Martin Paup was 37 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.

Martin Paup was 70 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
