Annie Martin Snow (1855-1889) was the third of John and Clara Martin's six children to die. She was the second oldest child. In 1880, she had married G. Fred Snow, and the couple moved to New Brunswick, Canada, where he worked.
She died while visiting her parents in Bangor.
Her father, an accountant and shopkeeper, included the illustration on page 85 of a scrapbook he wrote and illustrated starting in 1888, while he was away from home working as an accountant at Katahdin Iron Works, near Brownville. Martin also wrote a journal detailing many of his experiences and two other scrapbooks. The scrapbooks also contain numerous newspaper clippings.
