He also worked as an attorney, a notary public, a real estate broker, and a financier. In 1896, he was assigned as a deputy clerk in the United States District Court, Northern District of Texas, Fifth Circuit of Appeals. His wife, Cornelia, died that same year. Thomas married a second time, when he wed Mary E. Ferree, in 1897. While in Fort Worth, he resided at 304 Florence Street and was a member of the United Confederate Veterans. On January 13, 1900, Thomas Martin resigned from the federal court. By 1901, he had moved to Beaumont, Texas and in 1903, he was practicing law in El Paso, Texas with frequent trips to Mexico City.
