Son, 89, Fulfills Father’s Request



Fred B. Martz, 89, of Hustontown, has finally fulfilled a request made by his father, John Peter Martz IV, to mark the burial site of John Peter Martz II and his family. The graves are located in a lilac garden along Route 30 in Franklin County. The site required a lot of work to make it ready for a tombstone that was provided by Gordon’s Memorials. Fred will celebrate his 90th birthday on Aug. 28 and thought it was time to make his father’s wish come true. Fred B.
