Logan Martin had the good fortune to come into Roanoke County some years ago and marry Emma Lewis Oakey, the daughter of John M. Oakey, pioneer undertaker of this vicinity. At present, he is Chemist, Ec-Ze-Mologist and Manufacturer of Martin’s Ec-Ze-Mol Laboratories, Inc., Blacksburg, Va.
Logan Martin was born in Newport, Giles County, Virginia, educated in that county and later attended Roanoke College. During his business career he served for some years with an Office in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, as Sales Agent for The National Cash Register Company, and later by approximately 17 years in the mercantile business in Blacksburg.
In 1903, however, he started working on his medicine formulas, The Miracles Ointment of which took him more than 30 years to perfect. The Miracle Ointment is now sold over a large area of the U.S.
Mr. and Mrs. Martin have one child, C. Oakey Martin. They are residents of Blacksburg and affiliate with the Methodist Church. Mr. Martin’s hobby is hunting and is a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge.
