LEBOVICS MARTON.

Lebovics Marton, a well known citizen of Carroll county, and a prosperous dealer in junk, poultry and produce, is a successful business man. Coming to Delphi in 1905, he has, by enterprise, good management and industry, built up a large and constantly growing business, from a very humble beginning. Mr. Marton is prominent in the fraternal circles of Delphi just as he is successful in business.

Lebovics Marton is a native of Hungary, born at ICiralyhaza, July 23, 1873. He is the son of Lebi and Julia (Moses) Lebovics, the latter of whom died about 1883 and the former is still living in Kiralyhaza, Hungary. The family belongs to the Hebrew faith, the father having been a butcher by trade and having operated a meat market in ICiralyhaza. Lebi Lebovics' father was Lebovics Marton and his wife was Heroine Lebovics. They were farmers by occupation, the grandfather dying in the prime of life, but the grandmother lived to an advanced age. They were the parents of several children, among whom were Lebi, Gussie, of Sofalva, Hungary, and Goldie, who died at the age of sixty. The maternal grandparents of Mr. Marton were Abraham Moses and Rosa (Neiman) Moses, who died in Hungary. They had a family of three children, Franz Joseph, Jonas Benjamin and Julia.

Lebovics Marton was reared in Hungary and educated there. He served two years and thirty three days in the Seventh Company, Eleventh Infantry, and was then promoted to corporal and mustered out as such. In 1900 Mr. Marton came to America and, after locating in Chicago, worked for the American Hide & Leather Company for two or three years. He then became a janitor in an apartment building and, later, the engineer in the apartment. In 1905 he moved to Delphi, where he established a junk business in a small way. This business has gradually enlarged until Mr. Marton now does a large business and is compelled to employ a number of people. Not very long ago, he added poultry, butter and eggs to his business and has a large trade with the farmers of Carroll county.

On January 17, 1898, Lebovics Marton was married to Linka Kalla, the daughter of Igmatz and Sarah (Spitz) Kalla, who was born in Fanchika, Hungary. Mrs. Marton's parents were natives of Hungary, her mother having died when she was a small child. Her father died in January, 1915. They were the parents of seven children, two of whom died early in life. Those who lived to maturity were Ganandel, Rosa, Ragina, Bertha and Linka.

Mr. and Mrs. Lebovics Marton are the parents of one daughter, Julia Sarina, who is attending high school and who plays the violin and the piano with considerable skill.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Lebovics Marton belong to the Hebrew faith. Mr. Marton is a member of Mount Olive Lodge No. 48, Free and Accepted Masons, of Delphi Chapter No. 21, Royal Arch Masons, and of the. Monticello Council, Royal and Select Masters. He was made a Mason in Palace Lodge No. 765, of Pullman, Chicago. He is also a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, including the subordinate lodge, the encampment, and the Rebekahs. He belongs to Delphi Lodge No. 8o, Knights of Pythias, to Tippecanoe Tribe No. 505, Improved Order of Red Men, and to the Haymakers.
