He was elected November 12, 1835, as one of the Commissioners to ''lay off'' the town of New Echota, Capitol of the Cherokee Nation, East. He was a signer of the treaties of July 8, 1817, and February 27, 1819. He was elected Treasurer of the Cherokee Nation in 1819. Was elected Supreme Judge of the Cherokee Nation in 1821. He was a member of the Constitutional Convention of July 26, 1827, from Coosawaytee District. He died October 17, 1840. Lucy Martin nee McDaniel died September 25, 1860. [Editor's Note: It appears that the father of John Martin was John ''Jack'' Martin, the brother of Joseph Martin, rather than Joseph Martin. Several letters were written in 1831 to Gov. George R. Gilmer of Georgia in response to his queries regarding the white ancestry of many of the Cherokee leaders. At least two of the letters state that John Martin's father was John or Jack Martin, the brother of Joseph Martin. These letters have been published in Whites Among the Cherokees, collected and edited by Mary B. Warren and Eve B. Weeks, Heritage Papers, Danielsville, GA 30633, in 1987.
