The deceased had lived in Ireland for 13 years before migrating to Australia. For some days, Mrs Martyn's condition had been somewhat critical but It was thought by her medical advisers that she would, in-time, recover from the complaint, which appeared similar to Bright's Disease in a somewhat acute form. At the time of her death, the Martyn's two children were around 12 months and just four weeks in age.
Mrs Martyn was known as being 'kindly disposed' and popular with everyone she met. In 1909, Mrs Martyn's brother and sister-in-law (D & M O'Leary) placed an In Memorium notice in the newspapers.
Kitty's husband, Alfred Martyn, mounted constable at Kookynie and formerly of Menzies, was born 30 May 1877, at Hokitika, Westland, West Coast New Zealand, New Zealand. After Kitty's death, he married Daisy Cosie Lawson on 8 October 1908 at Boulder. Four children were born to this second marriage, before he died 28 Jun 1944, in Perth, aged 67 years.
