When Martin rejoined Texas DPW, he was assigned to Marfa and worked out of an office behind the JP courtroom in the Presidio County Courthouse.  His co-workers were Lupe Hernandez (pic right) whose family lived along the Big Bend River Road.  Her family would alternately host folks passing by that include the US Cavalry, Poncho Villa and the Mexican army.
