Biography/HistoryMartin F. Stasney was born in 1912 and died in 1993. From November 3rd to 9th, 1934, Martin worked and wrote letters from Thornburg, AR while he was in the Civilian Conservation Corps. He was hospitalized in Hot Springs, Arkansas, from November 15, 1934 to early April 1935. After being released, Martin resumed work in Thornburg until May 1935, when he was relocated to Lakota, ND. In late October 1935, he was assigned to work in Hill City, SD, where he worked until the correspondence ends in March 1937. The only break in this period was when Martin worked in Mandan, ND, for several months, from late July to mid September 1936. After returning home from working with the CCC, Martin worked on the family farm.
