MARTIN A. McNULTY was born in Maryland in October of 1888, to Mr. and Mrs. Patrick McNulty. By the time he was 12 his mother had passed away. At the time of the 1900 census the McNulty family, which included Martin and his 4 younger siblings, were living in Sparrow's Point MD, near Baltimore. 

Martin McNulty had come to Camden by the summer of 1910. At the time of the 1910 Census he was unmarried, lodging at 1914 Broadway, and working as a machinist in one of Camden's many shipyards, most likely that of the New York Shipbuilding Corporation, a short walk south on Broadway

Shortly after the Census was taken in 1910, Martin McNulty married. By January of 1920 he had bought the building at 307 Kaighn Avenue, where he operated a hotel, a term which in that time referred more to being a bar and restaurant operation than an overnight lodging business. By this time his wife Florence had bore him three children; Catherine, Florence, and James. His unmarried sister Mary also lived with the family.

With the advent of Prohibition, Martin McNulty closed his hotel operation and opened a hardware and home furnishings business at 307 Kaighn Avenue, which was still in operation as late as 1947. Another child was born after 1920, a daughter named Margaret. Sadly Florence McNulty passed away in January of 1928. 

A staunch Republican, Martin McNulty served as Camden County's purchasing agent in the late 1930s and early 1940s until being forced out of his position as a result of a political fued with his former patron, Louis Bantivoglio.

Martin McNulty was still living at 307 Kaighn Avenue as late as 1959.
