					Introduction
(This detailed information was gathered by Everet Leon and Betty Jean (Albertson) Marrs, Bloomington, Indiana. Betty
typed these many pages on a manual typewriter, so I’m (Dan Marrs, first cousin of Leon) am retyping it in electronic
format B a means of capturing information that wasn’t available when Betty and Leon started this project and was just
becoming a reality when Betty’s health deteriorated in the late 1980’s. Betty and Leon traveled the United States,
Canada and to the British Isles to gather this information, something for which all of the family will be deeply indebted. It
is impossible to repay them for the time and resources they used to gather this information, but perhaps through using
today’s technology to share it with family members around the world, their efforts will be long remembered. As I write
this, I can’t help but think what they might have been able to do with today’s technology of email and electronic sharing of
data. It’s nothing short of amazing the vast amount of family history they gathered and put it into a format that we, of the
next generation, can carry their work forward for the next generations.- Dan Marrs, January 2005)

Perhaps it is kinder to let my ancestors sleep.
Because the secrets they want to keep,
But then again I like to suppose,
My ancestors would like me to disturb their long repose

And perhaps when I visit their places of rest,
Or read of their lives and learn how they met the “test,”
Of early life in a pioneer land.
I’ll respect their efforts, tho’ maybe not so grand,

                                                            As building sky scrapers and supersonic planes,
                                                            But theirs was the courage that cleared the land and
                                                            Sowed the grain.

                                                            In spite of they gave us this country that is ours now,
                                                            And I feel when I shake the family tree,
                                                            They know and are glad B somehow.

I-      MARRS )           1720     EARL OF MAR OF SCOTLAND

1- William Marr ( )
         b. Scotland. Md. Tradition says an Indian maiden by the name of Munday in PA. Records say he had 3 sons
         born in PA. Samuel and Henry Munday, and Barnabus. The year 1720, a William Erskine Marr, Nobleman of
         Scotland leaving a vast estate in Scotland which none of the rights belong to his American descendents
         emigrated to America in order to avoid being put to death of severe torture as a religious Heretic. The dominate
         religionist had passed his sentence, which was that he be tied to the tail of a wild colt and it be turned loose in the
         streets of Edinburgh. To avoid this fearful fate, he fled his country & left friends & property behind. Originally, the
         name was spelled Marr, but he to avoid detection added an S since which time it has been written Marrs. Upon
         his arrival n the land of religious freedom he located near the town of Little York, PA. He previously lived in the
         Royal Castle of Balmora in the Mar District of Scotland. Source: History Book in 1883 by Beers, in Sidney, Ohio.

       *Rockbridge Historical Society says:
                Dear Mr. Marrs August 20 1974
                                                     th
                In response to your letter of the 15 , I can only say that the military service of the early settlers was not
                always given to record. Every male, as soon as he could carry, load and fire a rifle, he was a member of
                the militia and this continued until he was too feeble to do so. A company from the Middle New River
                Valley, commanded by Capt. Thomas Shannon, of Walker’s Creek, has Alexander Marrs as one of the
                Lieutenants. This company saw service under General Greene at Guilford Courthouse. I have no lead
                at to his connection with your Samuel Marrs. But I feel sure you will find them kinfolk. In Tazewell
                County, there were a number of forts as the Indian country was just beyond. These forts were not
                manned by soldiers as a general rule, but by local militiamen and settlers. When the alarm of “Injun

                 signs” passed along the wilderness paths, the settlers hastened “to fort up” in a designate place. I have
                 no doubt but that your Samuel Marrs was one of these militiamen. It is of record that, on Sept. 8, 1774 a
                 band of 12 or 15 Indians made a raid into Thompson’s Valley and killed John Henry, his wife and three
                 small children, who had come to the valley only the previous May. Samuel Marrs had settled there just
                 the year before (1773). From the data you have given in your letter I would offer this as a possible
                 narrative of your Samuel Marrs: “He and Francina Bradshaw were married in Pennsylvania and lived
                 there for possibly seven or eight years. During which time their first five children were born. About 1768,
                 they migrated southward and settled for a time in Augusta County, that section now of which became
                 Rockbridge in 1778. Here 3 sons Samuel W, Wm. & John were born. Shortly after the birth of John, the
                 family migrated to Thompson’s Valley where James was b. 1774. The next year Francina Marrs died
                 1775, a few years later he married the Widow Fowler. Note: that Elizabeth Fowler was made
                 administrator of the estate of Samuel Fowler deceased, Mar. 17, 1778 in the Washington Co. court, then
                 in Mar 21, James Dyshart was designated as the guardian for Mary and Samuel Fowler, orphans of
                 Samuel Fowler deceased. Perhaps this is the family of “widow” Fowler and this Mary Fowler was the girl
                 Christopher Marrs married, Feb 10, 1787 - the dau. Of his stepmother. *** Very early, it seems, the name
                 Marrs became Mairs in the records of Southwest Virginia, as is seen in the Index of Lewis Preston
                 Summers “Annuals of Southwest Virginia”. The name also found as Mares - the clerks of the frontier
                 courts were given to spelling by sound and intuition. Assuring you of my interest in your quest and of my
                 willingness to assist you as far as I am in position to do so, I remain. Very truly yours, George West
                 Diehl, genealogist of the Rockbridge Historical Society. Dundee Plantation, R#3 Lexington, VA 24450

                 Letter of August 13, 1974 states: The earliest record of the family name appears in the records of
                 Augusta county on Dec 10, 1745 when a certain Gideon Marrs qualified as an attorney, but there was no
                 further mention of him. Too, in the 1780's there was a certain Francis Marrah, Mora, Mara - I cite this as
                 it might be a corruption in the spelling as was often the case in early records. In a Chancery Case, July
                 29, 1811, a Richard Marr is mentioned as being the husband of Winifred Tilman, daughter of Thomas
                 Tilman, Sr. and his wife Lucy Hix; Lucy was the dau. Of Daniel Hix, deceased. In another Chancery
                 Case, dated Dec 1818 there is mention of John Marrs who had married a dau of James Jones and his
                 wife Nancy Woods. This deposition was made in Charlotteville, Albermarle co, VA, June 5, 1820.
                 Rockbridge County was formed from Augusta and Botetcourt Co in 1778. So, William (1770) as you
                 cite, was evidently b. in that section of Augusta Co which became Rockbridge when he was a boy of
                 eight years of age. “Note: In the work of Netti Schreiner-Yantis, AMontgomery Co, VA circa 1790, I note
                 in the Index Marrs (Mair’s, Mares, and Mears). Signed George W. Diehl, genealogist.”

Samuel Marrs, b. 1740 (no. 2) helped build the Fort at Hillsville, Va with Thomas Whitten, John Greenup, John Markman,
was among those that helped build the fort. They stationed a John Marrs and other at their homes to give protection for
their families while they built the fort. The Indians were so savage at this time and safety was foremost in ones mind.
Samuel Marrs built his family a small log cabin on Thomas Whitten land that he owned, this log cabin set on the north
side of Clinch River in the mouth of a little hollar just up from the Pisgah Church and in 1962 there is a white house that
sits on this spot of ground and is called the Cecil place. They lived here in their log home about 13-20 years in this area
of Tazewell VA. They settled there in the year 1773. There are still Marrs relatives living in the area in 1975. Their
forefather settled there 202 years ago, and it has been 255 years since William Marrs an Earl of Mar of Scotland settled
Little York, PA and started the Marrs family this is now a vast of relatives throughout America. Samuel had a son James
(12) b. 1774 a year after they settled near Tazewell, VA in Thompson Valley. He had by this time Henry, Phillis,
Elizabeth, Samuel Jr., Christopher, Ruth, William, John and James Marrs, making twelve children. In 1785 he bought
105 acres of land from a surveyor which was authorized by the Gov’t of England. The surveyors name was Patton. He
gave Patton 1 lb of English money for this survey. This land lay in the Ella Perry Hollar at the end of the hard surface road
and Samuel built a log cabin near where Harry Peery’s home stands now in 1962. They lived here 4 or 5 years, then he
sold to a man by name of Allen & bought land from the Cecils that lay along the Clinch River through North Tazewell, VA

west across Hubble Hill and into Baptist Valley. This was about 1790. His cabin stood where the Thompson or mule
farm house burned down. His wife, Francina Marrs d. here in 1795 - her maiden name was Bradshaw. She was buried
on the south hill behind the log cabin. In 1962 this graveyard lies on the back of Henry Christians lot. There are 10 or 12
graves there. Samuel later moved from River jack and his oldest son Henry (4) md. In 1785 to Elizabeth Maxwell dau of
Tom Maxwell and had 3 children. Thomas Marrs born there and died at age of 8 or T.B. and is buried with his
grandmother Francina Marrs. Rebecca Marrs, she md. John Brooks and Rebecca and John lived where Samuel and
Francina Marrs had lived and Samuel moved on to KY. Henry Marrs lived here in Tazewell till he died in ca. 1838 - his
kinfolk yet around that area today and his wife Elizabeth d. a few years earlier. They both are buried with Francina Marrs,
his mother and his son (their) Thomas Marrs who d. age 8. He (Henry) was 76 yrs of age at death and willed his land to
his son in laws. The Marrs owned land at Head of Baptist Valley from 1790 to 1838 (some 48 years.) Data: portions from

                 John Marrs of his sketch says his Uncle Samuel (1795) first settled in Bourbon Co. KY, then moved to
                 Monroe County KY. He recalled seeing him and he was a rather small man, bald head, and dressed
                 very plainly in the Quaker style. He was a remarkably well read in the Sacred Scriptures. It was not at all
                 unusual for him at family worship to recite from memory without opening a book having committed large
                 portions of it to memory. I knew his son Abijah Marrs, now about 80 years of age. *(written 1869 he d.
                 then just 3yrs after John wrote about him). Abijah lived in Tompkinsville
8. Christopher Marrs (2. Samuel Marrs)

                                       st
         Samuel after his mother & 1 wife Francina diet. He was witness and & Setp father to Mary and Christopher’s
         wedding. He was in War of 1812 but Archives has no record of him being in the war. Maybe because I asked
         under Marrs and I notice in Montgomery Co. KY. He is listed as Mauris as is typical of that day spelling as it
         sounds. His father was also listed at times under Mairs instead of Marrs. So it can be confusing to those in
         searching. He later md. In 1800 to Mary Greenup. He moved to Edgar Co. Illinois and surely he d. there.

       title, interest and claim which said Marrs now have in and to the tract of land upon which his mother now lives.
       The following information is from Sevie Gillock (Mrs. Dick Morrison), Lucas, KY. From Marrs and Allied Families
       by 4 sisters in TX.

               Great grandfather was Robert James Marrs. He was a Quaker. He first lived in Shakertown, between
               Danville and Perryville, KY. Nannie Ward told me he had a candy store in Danville. She also told me
               about the battles he was in. I am sending you an old letter written by his wife, Amanda Jane Stout Marrs,
               to her mother the year that Grandpa James Henry Marrs (101e) was born. Her mother - Mrs. Joicy R.
               Stout, Glasgow, KY, from Shawnee Run, Mercer County, KY, July 25, 1845:
               Dear Mother; I sit down this evening to inform you that we are all well. Hoping this may find you and the
               rest of the family well. I have nothing of importance to write, only we have a fine son. He was born the
                th
               9 of June. We call him James Henry Marrs (101e). Tell Liz that he is the prettiest child we ever saw.
               We have been looking for a letter from Barron for some time, but we have not received any. We want to
               hear from you all very bad. I want to hear where Mary is and she comes on. Tell her and Liz not to forget
               their promise about coming up this fall. The relations are all well so far as I know except Uncle Tommy’s
               family. Jane’s youngest child is dead. The other one, Hitty Jane, and David are going the same way
               except they leave that place. Dr. Polk says it is not healthy. He says Aunt Kitty must sent them down to
               Shawnee Run to stay some time and Betsy is sometimes better and then worse. Grandmother is as well
               as common. Uncle Clark is dead. He died about the middle of May. Bob was here on Sunday and he
               died on Monday. He was perfectly willing to die. He prayed for the hour to come that would relieve him
               of his suffering. Grandpap talks of coming down this fall and going to Uncle Rushes and to
               Elizabethtown to see his sister if he can get anybody to keep the gate for him. He wants to Bob, but he
               can’t leave home. Crops look very promising, altho’ we had such a dry spring there hasn’t been such
               wheat crops for 7 years. Jo Pursley started to Barren about the middle of this month to look for his horse.
               He got as far as Possum Kingdom and there he found it and turned around and came back. He is now
               at Uncle Toms. Him and William was down here last Saturday; and Aunt Betsy sent word she was better
               then she had been for 3 yrs. She is taking some kind of patent medicine which she thinks helps her very
               much. Tell Pap I heard he was a candidate for the legislature. If he is elected, I am in hopes he will
               come by as he goes to Frankfort and see us. Give our love to Liz, Henry, Pap, Rice and all the children
               and all of the relatives and all the inquiring friends. No more at present, but I remain your daughter
               affectionately, Amanda J. Marrs (to her mother, Joicy R. Stout.

        Folklore: Hex would yell this at his boys (he lost his mind in old age, said Lef Shrader of Bluefield, VA) “Rhuban
        & Shields, Alex & Peels flee to the Mountain the devil will catch you.” He was the son of Hezekiah Harmon, Jr.

                st

        May 29, 1845. Buried on his home farm one mile east of the Courthouse. The following is inscribed upon the
        stone that marks his grave “Sacred to the memory of Hezikiah Harman.” He left in his will that his slaves not to be
        hired out without their consent and then only to stay awhile with the children. Henry, one of the slaves, to be
        liberated at my wife’s death upon his good behavior - to be judged by my executors. If the law will permit his
        freedom, if not, let him choose which of the children shall be his guardian to treat him well in old age. Ruth to be
        liberated at my wife’s death if the law will permit her freedom. If not, let her choose any one of my children as her
        guardian. I allow my estate to give her comfortable support in old age till death. I think she has been an
        affectionate attendant upon myself and family for which she must be rewarded.

         He was blind for several years before his death and for the last seven years of his life he regained his sight and
         so as food was past, he could see his wife Mary Jane sneak food to the children under the table - he was, as Clair
         Marrs Petty (406) told us when we visited with them that he was what you call Chinchey - in other words, down
         right stingy.
         They made their own clothing and he didn’t like the color Mary Jane his wife had chosen for his pants. He made
         some dye and dug him a pit in the ground to dye his pants blue. Afterwards the sheep came along and stumbled
         into it and turned them blue. People from all around would ask how they got blue sheep and he wouldn’t tell them
         - he let them think they were born that way and were freaks.

        every minute of every letter, her husband wrote, telling us never to write again, giving no reason and I’m sure it
        was his request only, not Carrie’s. She was the one who contacted us and gave us all the data and pictures, etc.
        We never knew they existed until Carrie wrote us. We still enjoyed her letters regardless how her husband feels
        about sharing Carrie. We have their pictures and home they built and his picture too. They have no children.

       latter years and never went to a doctor, so spent her time in a wheel chair. A letter written us by Mary Dela
       Johnson, 3505 3 Alpine Blvd, Alpine Calif, 92001, gave us some data on above, etc. It is a pleasure always to
       hear from our relatives. She wrote us in Sept 7, 1973. Also a letter from Roy Merton Marrs in Dec 29, 1973 he
       d. 1974. I’m sad to say.) He says in the letter. My father did not see his parents Daniel and Lottie for something
       like 20 years and I was 10 when we visited them in San Diego, Calif. We were there for about one week and that
       is the only time I knew them. Grandpa Daniel was a laborer all his life, mostly on farms, never accumulated any
       property, except that his sons got together when he and grandma were in their late sixties and sent them money
       each month to maintain them in a very small but comfortable home in the outskirts of San Diego. The both lived
       into their nineties and were in excellent health into their 80's, so while they were not blessed with worldly
       acquisitions, they were more than compensated by excellent health and long life. Another letter from Mr. and
       Mrs. Alderman (who also died in 1973 a short while after we found them too). Here is a portion of the letter:
       Daniel Marrs had moved to Lawrence Kansas about the time Jay entered KU Kansas University. After Virgils
       death Florence (Dan’s dau) took Elbert and Sylvia to Lawrence where they lived for a time with her parents. She
       resumed work as a nurse. She later bought a home in Lawrence and took up dressmaking so she could be at
       home. When Elbert was about 8 or 9 he went to live with Aunt and Uncle on a farm near Larkingburg. He was
       with them most of the time until he was old enough to be on his own. He then got a job as an apprentice to a
       plumber. He worked for quite awhile but decided he’d rather be an auto mechanic and that has been his life work
       ever since, except during WWII when he worked for Boeing at Wichita as a welder. His wife worked there too, for
       a time as a machine operator. Before she md. she taught a rural school in Kansas for 2 years. Daniel and Lottie
       moved to San Diego Calif as the grew older for the mild climate. Eventually she fell and broke a hip not trusting

        doctors and hospitals, she persuaded Daniel to just help her and let nature heal it. By the time their children
        knew of it, it healed in a position that left her in a wheel chair the rest of her lifetime. Elbert’s mother sold her
        home in Lawrence, KS a that time 1933 and came out to San Diego to look after her parents. Some years after
        their death went to work in a cafeteria for 2 or 3 years and also did some dressmaking along for special
        customers. She was always busy and cheerful never married again. High blood pressure and a series of
        strokes took her life. She was a wonderful mother in law. Our oldest dau Dorothy married a Marine so she has
        lived many places. Their home is in Garden Grove and he is now retired after 20 years of service, which included
        Korea and 2 tours of duty in Viet Nam. They are only about 100 miles from us, so we get together fairly often.
        Their oldest dau Leah md over a year ago, but lives only about 2 miles from her parents so they see each other
        often too. Barbara, their youngest, grad form high school last spring and is to go to work in Sept in the City of
        Santa Anna Print Shop. She is busy in the mean time brushing up on her typing. Signed Elbert and Hope
        Alderman. Donald and Goldie Marrs, of N. Jersery, visited with us and they sent pictures of Daniel, Lottie and of
        the children and of family of their own. Was a very good visit we had. Also, Mrs.
        Cecil (J.D) Marrs of Ames IA sent me pictures of Jay D. her husband and son and his family. Aunt Edna Marrs
        Hoppes also sent us pictures of Gifford and wife and more on Marrs (Gifford is father of Don).

        Shirley Petty, Bryon Talmage Petty, Clair Marrs Petty (we’ve met 1971-2), Virgil Ira Petty, and Nathan William
        Petty and a dau. Grace, b. Dec 4, 1884 d. Mar 2, 1885, Jesse cem, beside her grandfather William Marrs, Jr. He
        works in his home and store building is a hard working man and is one of the honorable and representative
        citizens of Tuscola. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and of the Court of Honor. Mrs. Petty, a
        lady of good intelligence and fine business tact, is a dau of William Marrs and Mary Jane Sunderland Marrs, the
        former a native of Bourbon Co, KY and the latter of Montgomery Co, Ohio. At age of 4 yrs, William Marrs, with
        his father William, moved to Shelby Co Ohio, where William Marrs, Jr was raised. He moved to Macon Co,
        Illinois in 1859 and there engaged in agricultural pursuits. Priscilla Marrs taught school 7 years in Champaign Co
        Ill, then became Mrs. Petty. She has the Agency and field manager for the Viavi company for Douglas Co and
        also has the agency and field manager for the magnetic Shield Co, of Chicago. In her county, Viavi is purely
        vegetable compound the outgrowth of a physician prescription to his years of experimenting was added an
        incredible amount of patience and money and viavi in its present form is the result. It is virtually predigested food
        and is used with most perfect safety by the most delicate young and old. This remedy is world famed and is
        successfully used by every nation. The motto of the Viava (or Viavi) worker “The High Physical Life of Women
        and this Preserve the Health of the race.” (Dan’s note: I did a Google search on Viavi and think this was
        developed by Dr. Kellogg, who is mostly famous for his corn flakes.) Mrs. Petty has in her 6 years agency done
        a business of over4,600. She is thoroughly capable, and with the time that she has given to her special work she
        has been remarkably successful. (He son, Clair Marrs Petty told us the following: She was a school teacher, was
        teaching school in or around Macon or Murdock, Ill, when she met Joseph Bradley Petty, md. in 1881. They had
        7 children, 2 girls died in infancy. Had a general store feed grinding and blacksmith shop at Tuscola, Ill. Was
        called Pettyville - still goes by that name yet when the boys were in early teens. Traded business for 165 acres

       farm about 15 miles east of Effingham. Lived there until boys married and gone. After a few years, farm work too
       much for them, moved to Effingham and that’s where the family Bible and records on Earl of Mar were lost in the
       fire at Effingham. Proof of Earl of Mar went up in flames and broke Priscilla and Betsy’s hearts. Betsy had went
       to Scotland with son Charles Allen and they had proof but it all burned in the fire. They continued to live in
       Effingham till their deaths. After she d. Joe never md again. Priscilla was an educated person, loved to read,
       kept informed on events of her time, devoted to their church and was greatly missed
       when they left the farm permanently. Clair remembers his mother Priscilla being very religious person. Every
       time they went out on a convention, she’d tie right into them. Joe, her husband, became devout religious after
       his business in Iantha MO failed because his partner stole him blind and he returned to Tuscola, Ill believing the
       Lord would provide and He did and this made him a believer. He was so disgusted with the way things happened
       in Iantha that he rolled up the deed to the property and he shoved it down a craw dad hole. He said “The damned
       Craw-dads can have it”. They loaded up all their belongings on a wagon and headed to Illinois. Clair told us
       about the time his mother Priscilla was picking feathers off of the geese and this one kept pecking her on the
       behind as she was picking his feathers, so she put his head under her arm and when she was finished she put
       him down, but he was dead, as he had smothered. Clair has a picture of Mary Jane Sunderland Corns Marrs.
       We now have one too, only it is different as she is older in ours. We got a copy of it from Uncle Leo Marrs,
       Arkansas City, KS - Mary Jane’s grandson. Would love to copy the one Clair has too. He gave us a picture of
       Mercy and her husband John March for which we are thankful to get.
       Family reunion for Mrs. Mary Marrs, date, 1904 in Decatur newspaper: Mother of Mrs. John L. March, now 87
       years of age (Uncle Leo sent us a clipping of this and we wrote to the newspaper, never dreaming they would in
       turn send us the actual clipping and picture, but they did. It was a thrill, I must say. Leon Marrs) On Christmas
       Day, a family reunion was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John L. March, about 2 miles west of Decatur, on the
       Springfield Road. The reunion was held for Mrs. Mary Jane Marrs, the mother of Mrs. March. All the members
       had not been together for 28 years. All of her children were not able to be with her on Christmas Day. One son,
       Daniel Marrs, of Arrington, Kansas, expected to arrive on time but did not get there until Tues. morning. Three
       other ch were also absent. The guests - Those who spent the day with their mother were the following: Mrs.
       John L. (Mercy) March, of this city, Dye S. Corns of Lima, Ohio, Mrs. Priscilla Marrs Petty, of Jasper Co, Ill, and
       Mrs Betty (Betsy) White, Walnut Grove, Decatur Ill. There were also present: J.L. March, E. White and dau
       Edith, Miss Callie Corns of Lima Ohio, Ed March and family. The day was spent in a social way, with a big turkey
                                                                                         st
       dinner at noon. Dye S. Corns, the oldest son of Mrs. Marrs (her son by her 1 marriage to Samuel Corns who
       died) had not been her for since 1875. Another son Daniel Marrs had not been here for 14 years. Born in Ohio,
       she was born in Oct. 1817 in Montgomery Co Ohio. Her grandfather, Peter Sunderland, was a revolutionary
       soldier and was wounded at the battle of Bunker Hill. She was only a young girl when he died, but she
       remembers him well and also remembers stories which he told of the Revolutionary War. Her father, Dye
       Sunderland (1794) was a soldier of the War of 1812. Two of her sons fought in Civil War, Greenup Marrs and Ira
       Marrs. She was first married when she was 19 yrs. old(1836) to Samuel Corns of Sidney Ohio. Her husband
       died when they had been married less than 2 years. After being a widow 2 years, she m. William Marrs, Jr. of
       Lima, Ohio. She had a son by her first husband, Dye S. Corns. Came to Illinois B the family came to Illinois in
       1859 and settled near Clinton in the Spring of 1860 they moved to Macon co and have since made this their
       home. Mr. Marrs d. in 1890 at the home of a son (Greenup Marrs) in Douglas Co. She lives with her daughter
       Mercy, Mrs. J. March and still active. She loves to cook and can make as good a meal as anyone. She can also
       do all other kinds of housework. Her hearing is affected but her health is otherwise very good. She was never
       educated so can not read and write, but she is bright and intelligent and has a wonderful memory. She was very
       often to tell of her early life in Ohio, when the Indians were there also. She learned the language of the Shawnee
       Indians and often traded with them. Her daughter, Mrs. Petty, left Friday morning for her home at Montrose. The
       other children will return home next Monday. Mrs. Marrs brother, James, recollects the time when drunken
       Indians caused some bother and his mother knocked one down in their house with an iron poker for attempting to
       take a skein of sewing thread from her. Upon being helped to his feet and out of the house by his companion, he
       turned and said “You good Squaw, no coward.” (Taken from the Reporter, Allen Co Historical Society, No. 55,

200. Betsy Ann Marrs (81. William Marrs, Jr.)
        b. Mar 22, 1858. md Mr. Allen. When we visited Clair Petty, her nephew in Effingham in 1971, he told us she
        didn’t know the value of a dollar - spent it like water off of a ducks back, so to speak. She and her sister Priscilla
        had all the data needed to prove William Marr, the Earl of Mar, but it burned up with home of Priscilla in
        Effingham. They were in the process of obtaining the inheritance at the time. He told us Betsy’s son, Charles
        Allen, came out to their farm when they were making sorghum and Clair thought he was a city boy that was
        “windy,” for he told them they could use bed springs for a radio antenna ..... Actually, Clair said he was very smart
        but they didn’t think so at that time. He also said that if they’d had Talk-a-Thon’s in those days like they have
        walk-a-thon’s today, that Betsy would have won first prize, for she was a talker. We remember Dad (Evert)
        telling about Aunt Betsy and son Charles Allen going to Scotland to check on Inheritance of Earl of Mar.
        Throughout his lifetime, he mentioned this a lot and saddened because all proof burned up in the home of
                                                                                                        nd
        Priscilla and Joe Petty in Effingham, Ill. Aunt Edna Marrs Hoppes told us that Betsy md 2 a Mr. Charles Allen
        in New Castle, PA and died there so she is bur in a cem in New Castle PA. Her son moved to Florida and died
        & buried there. She mentions following in letter, Oct 16, 1972: All I can tell you of Charles Allen he used to work
        for my brother-in-law, Byron Loomis, in Chicago, as an electrician - he was very good at the job. Then he went to
        WWI and lost an eye. I never heard very much of him except through Aunt Mercy March, who lived in Decatur,
        Ill. He md and lived in New Castle, PA. That is when Aunt Betty (Betsy) went to live with and she died and buried
        there. Then Jenny, Charles wife died. He md again so as far as I know, he is buried in Tampa, Florida. I never

        are both dead now too. Bertha had TB and for many years was more or less an invalid. She d. in July 1912. I
        don’t remember anything of Uncle Henry Marrs, who lived I believe in Ohio. I just remember Aunt Betty and Aunt
        Mercy telling he had a daughter named Priscilla Marrs and a son named Leo. I know nothing else and everyone
        is gone who could have told us anything. I have much love to you all, Aunt Edna Marrs Hoppes. (We have their

       our ancestor William Marr. We want all the information of every kind and please tell me from what source your
       information was derived, whether by tradition or from history or how it came and if you have the Bible our
       ancestor William Marr brought from Scotland. Please let me know that, for I learn that he brought one and there

        A lovely Life, Mrs. Eliza O’Neil Marrs, wife of James (83). 86 years ago on the 15 of Dec, she was born a the
        home of her father, Daniel O’Neil (or Neal) in Champaign Co, Ohio. In the companionship of her brothers and
        sisters, she grew to womanhood, an was as accustom in those days the girls were taught to spin and card the
        wool of sheep for making clothing. Three months out of the year at subscription school was the best the country
        afforded. (Dan’s note: I looked up “subscription school” on Google and it looks like the school was built with
        public subscription - which I assume meant each family “subscribed” with funds for the school - similar to
        property tax today, except it was voluntary. This is just my interpretation from the Google search.) In 1830, she
        married to James Marrs (83) and they lived and began housekeeping on a farm in Shelby Co, Ohio, where they
        lived for 30 years. In 1866, James Marrs, her husband, died, leaving his wife and 3 children (213, 214, 215).
        After the marriage of her children, she broke up housekeeping and made her home with them. For 20 years she
        made her home with her widowed dau Mrs. Gilbert. For 60 years she has been a member of the Christian
        Church, but for several years she has been deprived of the privilege of attending church services on account of
        a fractured hip, the result of a fall, however she gets about the house with the aid of a crutch, even going up and
        down stairs. Her general health is good for one of her age. Her early habits of industry are persistent and she
        busies herself with such work as she can do a sitting. Knitting is a favorite occupation, she is also fond of
        reading, and takes a lively interest in all the pertains to the welfare of mankind. How better can we close this brief
        sketch of a useful, beautiful life than by quoting the remark of a neighbor. “Mrs. Marrs is such a lovely old Lady.”

        man celebrate his 100 birthday and if I live, I expect to see it next December 31, at Mackinaw, Illinois. I’m not
        worried about Tom Shaw living out the year. He neither rides automobiles nor runs a newspaper, with it’s
        chance of being shot every night. So I think he will be here all right, as strong and alert as he was when I talked
        to him a while ago.

                                          100 Years Old

       Tom Shaw md. Serena Marrs (209), dau of James Marrs (83) and Eliza O’Neil Marrs. Tom was born in Kentucky
       Dec 31, 1832, before Kentucky ever knew that it would be famous as the birthplace of Abe Lincoln. The nation
       then was vastly, more interested in Andrew Jackson for Old Hickory was about to be re-elected to his second
       term as President of the U.S.A. Tom’s sire has 2 wives and each bore him 6 children. Tom was the last of the
       first half-dozen. While Tom was still a suckling babe, his mother got dinner for harvest hands one day in the
       rough Kentucky country. That afternoon she took cholera and at supper time she lay dead. So a Negro slave
       took Tom over, aided by a 12 year old sister. A couple years later, the lure of a good buy tempted Bill Shaw, his
       father, across the Mason-Dixon line into Ohio, where he bought what was known as “The Kentuck Section,” 640
       acres of heavily timbered land. He took his little brood along with him and wanted to take the Negro Mamy. In
       fact, she and other slaves begged to go along, but even then, 27 years before the Civil War, feeling was high.
       The Ohio abolitionists would not stand for slaves. So Mamy was left behind and Bill Shaw found him a Buckeye
       girl to care for his children and became mother of his second brood of 6. Those Ohio days are the earliest of Tom
       Shaw’s memories. When the fire went out, they would send him to a neighbors to borrow some fire for a fresh
       start. Carrying coals on a shovel, he would toss little sticks on the fire as he walked along to keep the fire going.
       Firing a stump was the best way to keep a fire going and handy. He showed me a picture of his old Ohio home.
       Quite a mansion, then. Built of brick. Two stories high with a hall in the middle of both floors and one great room
       on each floor and a big fireplace in each of the 4 rooms. Mr. Shaw remembers that they were burning the brick for
       this house when some friends loaded their belongings into a prairie schooner and joined the great gold rush to
       California in 1849. Eight years later, he, too climbed into a covered wagon and pushed west - maybe because
       Mr. James Marrs (83) was going west and taking Serena Marrs along. Anyway, he came and 4 years later in
       Clinton, Illinois, he and Serena Marrs were wed. She traveled a life’s trail with him till their golden wedding day,
       then d a few weeks afterwards of cancer. To Mr. Shaw, that seems only a few years ago. Time slips swiftly for
       him now. But not the nights. “The nights are pretty long,” he told me. “Some nights it seems like the dawn will

       Letter written by a Caledonia C. Tucker, Shreveport LA and one in Hotchitoches LA June 29, 1877 (can’t place
       her rightful parent yet but hope to do so) by putting her letters her. Dear Uncle Henry Bradshaw Marrs, I write
       you again in regard to the Marrs Estate in Scotland. I have just received a letter from one of our relatives in Ohio
       (Marshall Pepper) stating he intended to ferret the matter out and asking me for all the information I was
       possessed of in regard to it. He believes we are the heirs and says it is time that we put in out claim. His is the
       first and only letter I have received from any of the Marrs family since this matter has been agitated and I feel
       hopeful. I desire you to have your testimony taken before the proper authority, all you know personally of the
       family history. What you know of Great Uncle Barnabus Marrs, what he said about his father, William Marr, that
       he was an Earl and commanded the Queen’s Gunadies, fled from Scotland on acc’t of Religious persecution;
       That you can trace your lineage back to the time your great grandfather William Marr lived in Scotland. You
       wrote this in a letter to me bearing the date Feb 5, 1875. Now for God’s sake .... your children’s sake ... for that
       of your brother John A. Marrs’ (1793) children ... please have your testimony taken properly. You know how as
       you were Clerk so long. You are old and your testimony will be invaluable in the future. Go to Uncle Samuel
       (1795) and have him to attend to this matter immediately, he and you are the oldest, and think of all the Marrs
       living. This matter now since I have received this letter from Ohio (Mashall Pepper?) must be attended to. I have
       devoted all my energies to it since the beginning of the summer of 1873 and now I believe God is with me at last,
       and I will gain Hope .... Tell Uncle Samuel to give his testimony in full, state his own age. That he has heard his
       father, Samuel W. Marrs, Jr. 1769 and Uncle Barnabus say all about his Great Grandfather William Marrs fleeing
       from Scotland on account of religious persecution and tell everything as far back as he can remember. Ask him,
       particularly, if he don’t think William Marr came to America with his family. Does Samuel (1740) b. in Scotland or
       America? James and I relie on you now, Uncle Henry, to attend to this business about the testimony
       immediately. And you can also say what Uncle Abijah (1789) has said about the Marrs History. Things are
       brightening and I trust yet great estate will be ours, who I think are the rightful heirs. I’ve never had such bright
       hopes as now. And if you will all help me now in furnishing means and especially testimony we will soon, I pray,
       be crowned with success. This Marr Estate has been too long awaiting the rightful heirs. Our regards ... write
       immediately, Dear Uncle Henry Bradshaw.

        Written June 10, 1879, Caledonia C. Tucker, Natchtoches, LA Dear Uncle Henry Bradshaw Marrs. It has been
        so long since I had news from you my dear Uncle, that it seems almost a lifetime. I hope however Uncle Henry
        you are enjoying good health and still hearty. Have you any more news with respect to the Marr Estate?? Will
        you write me all you know, all you remember, relative to our family history? Commence with Great Great
        grandfathers at what time he came to America. I mean of his children that he brought here have you any
        recollection in what part of Virginia did he die? Oh: I pray that your strong memory may serve you right and that
        you will tell me all that. Hope to hear of my forefathers. I wish to know all you can tell me of my family history. Do
        not omit anything pertaining thereto. My great grandfather whom death took away from me at the tender age of
        3 yrs, he died 1817. I’m such a stranger to all my family been brought up away from all the family therefore I
        desire information on them. My husband joins my children in sending Dear Uncle Henry much love to you. Write
        soon to me and I hope you will tell all you know of my family history. Your dear niece, Caledonia C. Tucker.

        Letter from Carrie Marrs Walters (Dan’s note: from the letter, she’s obviously a granddaughter of Acre Marrs
-180- but can’t determine which of that family is her dad. Probably Samuel Jesse Marrs -356, as he was the only boy in
that family.) of R#1, Box 61, Tawas City MI, 48763 July 1973
        Dear Betty and Leon: Enjoyed your letter, sounds like you and I have a lot in common. I’m sending you a list of
        my family but I may never get the right dates. I wrote to Bub - that’s my bro. Floyd - he is such a good guy, have
        never known him to say any bad words and always helping down and out people. He took the place of my Dad
        B he was only 11 years old at that time and I think he lost his childhood and went right to being an adult and head
        of the family. We were so poor even the mice stayed away. I look back and realize we had something money
        could never buy. My Ma was very strict. We couldn’t to other homes much, but she let all the neighborhood kids
        come to our house. We always had lots of fun and we were taught to share chores, etc. We were also taught
        manners, a thing that seems to be non-existent now adays. My brother Birdie .. Paul .. Was and still is a fun
        loving good natured nut - always getting away with murder. He was little and cute. When I was 7 and he was 10,
        people took us for twins, as far as size. The two boys are as different as nite and day. They have drifted away
        from each other, but they find out about each other thru me. I’m a big old thing .. big boned like my Dad’s sisters.
        I remember them as big women, but that could be thru my child’s eyes. One sister came and stayed a few weeks
        when Dad died, but I don’t know if it was Eva or Nan. The next few years Aunt Bet and Uncle Fletcher Pepper
        used to come visit but they lost interest when they realized the couldn’t control my mother. I think in about the
        early >30's Arby Martin, Aunt Mae’s boy
        , came to visit and I thought he was purely wonderful. He had won an Irish sweepstakes ticket and he came to S.
        Haven to look at the electric organs at Everett Piano. He played like nothing I’ve ever heard. That’s when I got
        my organ bug. Later about 1935, he came again and bro’t Mae, she was nearly blind. Later, she and her
        husband were both blind. Arby always took care of them. He was a bit sisyish, we tho’t at the time B he baked
        pumpkin pies out of this world. He could do more things like a woman, not because of being sisy, but because of
        his devotion and care of his parents. I think he died when he was about 42 years of age. Do you know about

        Marie Walters, Sublette, Kansas? (Dan’s note: Marie Walters was the daughter of 355 Nancy Marrs - I think,
        although she married a Grangwer, so Marie must have married a Walters. If not, additional research needs to be
        done on this linkage) She’s my first cousin, but I don’t know Nan’s or Eva’s girl. We were coming back from a 3
        month laze in Arizona came thru Kansas on the way back. We looked her up. Her husband Virgil came to the
        door - it was Easter and they had company. I will never forget it. It’s funny now, but not then. I was black as 2
        Mexicans and my hair was very dark brown and glossy. I guess I did look like a Mexican at that. Anyway, I
        asked to see Marie and he tho’t I was some kind of imposter ... and a Mexican to boot. I said who my Dad was
        and told them about their two sons who at the time had never seen green grass. Finally Marie came to the door,
        along with all their company, listening to me explain and explain. She had forgotten there was a girl - me. But
        then the royal red carpet was literally rolled out. What a good time we had; Mike, my husband, had sat in the car
        during the whole thing and he tho’t I was kooky trying to make them give in and accept me. I think she’s still alive,
        but Virgil is dead. I think that all happened in 1953. I can’t keep things straight, we’ve been to Arizona and other
        western states so many times. My I have really run on. I told Mike I feel so rich, finding someone from my Dad’s
        people to get acquainted with. Hope to hear from you again. (This is just a portion of the letter she wrote ...
        doesn’t sound like she was the one who wanted to quit writing us and we miss her letters of news of the Marrs
        family. Maybe one day she’ll contact us once again. We’ll be hoping.)

       (Here is the first very 1 letter we rec’ from their dau Carrie Marrs Walters of R#1, Box 61H, Tawas City MI
       48763.
               Dear Mr. and Mrs Marrs (May 5, 1973)
               I found your article in an old magazine in a laundermat. I can’t help you with your book you are looking
               for, but I’m a MARRS. I’ll explain the little I know. I have a blue and white woven coverlet with Shelby Co
               OH and I think the date was either 1881 or 1883. The story about it is that my grandmother raised
               sheep, she carded the wool and spun it, dyed it blue and then had it woven. It is a sort of snowflake
               design. Reversible. Across the ends are houses. My father was Samuel Jesse Marrs from Indiana. His
               mother was Elizabeth Deweese. I do not know his fathers name. I am named after her. My father died
               Mar 28, 1928. I was 7 at the time. His mother died about the same time I was born. I think? My father
               had 4 sisters, Nan, Eva, Betsy md Pepper, Mae md Martin - I can’t remember their last names. After my
               father’s death, his family sort of lost track of us. I expect they are all gone by now. I have 2 brothers,
               Floyd Alfred Marrs, 422 Cherry St, So. Haven, Michigan and Paul Edwin Marrs, Pleasant Valley, New
               York. I think my father was born 1873 or maybe 1874. I do know it was June 21. He was md to my
               mother, Edith Irene Trowbridge, of Ionia County, Mich. for about 12 or 13 years. He died of cancer. Do
               you think perhaps that we are related? Even remotely? It’s rather fun to find out about our backgrounds.
               I have a picture of my father when he was a boy - shows his father, mother and sisters in front of an old,
               old log house - part log. Not very clear, tho’ (she sent so we could have a copy made - it is good)_ I also
               have his child size rocking chair and his cup when he was 7 (we got pictures of this as well as the
               coverlet mentioned above). I remember him as a gentle, kind and loving man. He was 6ft 2 and slim. I
               still miss him and I’m 52 now. Perhaps I will hear from you. Signed Carrie Elizabeth Marrs. Mrs.
               Michael Marrs.

                Portions of another letter Aug 9, 1973: We got out a map, but I couldn’t find your town. Mike told me I
                was blind, as there it was. But the idiot .. it was in Illinois. So where are you?? Wish it would be near
                Mich border. My Ma’s family used to go to Kendalville, IN for Trowbridge reunions, but I have lost track
                of them - probably all gone now. I have to wear ritzy ole clod hopper oxfords with a brace inside. The
                last pair aren’t holding me up and I’m in a lot of pain all the time, so I expect I’ll have to get new ones
                made. They cost, along with Dr. office calls a fortune. Can’t wear pretty shoes at all, but they wouldn’t
                look so well with my worn out blue jeans. Ha!!! I’ve had problems all my live with my joints, but last few
                years it has become worse. Bursitus and writus and wrists, shoulder, fingers and hands. It comes and
                goes .. depends how much I use things like a hammer, shovel, etc. Now that the house is nearly done,

               it is letting up some what. I was born with very weak muscles .. all over, not just feet. That’s also why I
               don’t have children. Doctor told me when I was first married that the muscles were too weak to hold.
               Can’t miss someone I never had, right? Glad you understand about me and religion. I expect someday
               it will happen all by itself. I really hope it will but I can’t lie about it. About Billy Graham .. I always listen
               to him on TV. He really explains things. Who knows.. I may get with it thru him. Bye for now, love Carrie
               . P.S. we enjoy your letters - write us soon) Another letter written Aug 27, 1973 - portions of it:
               Dear Betty, it’s 1:30 a.m wee hours. Another of my sleepless nites. So if this is disjointed.. just consider
               the source and time!!! It’s so aggravating to be so tired and not be able to sleep. I get good nite out of 3,
               usually. First I rec’d the old, old picture back today. Thank you. I’d hated to have it lost in the mails.
               Other than knowing the in it are my dad and his 5 sisters (one whose name I never knew .. think she died
               young) and his ma at the corner of his house and his father with the beard. My dad is standing on a chair
               by the door. He was supposed to have been 7 or so. As to where it was, I have no way of finding out. I
               know my brothers don’t know. The front part made with hewn logs. The rest is clapboard. Must have
               been quite a house back then. I took snapshots of the coverlet and Dad’s rocker. Black and white film.
               Still a lot of film to use on that one yet so it will probably be ages before I get around to finishing it. (She
               did, though and we now have it). Leon is a handsome man! Don’t tell him or he’ll get the big-head. Ha.
               Your children are a fine lot. I get a bit mixed up yet as to their ages. Going to make a notebook and put
               things in it about you and your family so I can remember and sort everyone out. I look forward to hearing
               from you. Maybe you all could come up some time. Love Carrie.
               letter written Oct 9, 1973 - wee small hours - again can’t sleep. You’re quite the artist! The sketch really
               looks like my dad. THANK YOU so much. Also, the coat of arms snapshot. Imagine, I’m from royalty.
               Unbelievable. I never go to weddings if I can get out of them or funerals. Argued with myself right up to
               the time about going to my mother’s. Didn’t think I could bear to see her dead. But once there, it was
               OK. She looked about 40 years old and so pretty and peaceful. I’ve fought and won so far on funerals
               on Mike’s side I get in a lot of hot water, but I stand firm. I’d really like to hear about Leon’s sisters
               sometime when you write. Really enjoy your letters and Mike does too. Some of the people I write to ..
               he doesn’t even read their letters, but yours he reads, sometimes before I do. If he goes to the mailbox.
               So that’s a big gold star for you. Write soon, love Carrie.

               Another letter July 17, 1973. Think about you often and rec’d your letter today so am not going to let
               another day go by without answering. Mike is a fishing nut - goes nearly everyday year around. He
               retired because he has emphysema and we having difficulty breathing. Up here, the air is clean and
               fresh. He still huffs and puffs, but works like a horse. He was 62 and now he’s 68, will be 69 Sept 1973
               (at this writing, he is 70). We came here in 1970 and started building our home here on 3 acres. So if we
               are not building, we are gardening, canning, freezing or getting firewood. I love to swim and ski and do
               both up here. I was 40 before I learned to snow ski. I also like bicycle and I’m a nut over it, do about 13
               miles last time out. I like to go by myself. So now I guess you’re getting some idea of what kind of a
               kooky cousin you’ve unearthed.! Write again soon, Carrie.

               Portions of another letter Dec 11, 1973: I have several nieces and I hit it off with Birdie’s son Steve
               Marrs. Nov. 8, 1973 - My grandparents came to Ionia Co Michigan in a covered wagon and were
               pioneers. I’ve been to the land but the log cabin was gone. Have heard many good stories. They’re all
               gone now. Just a few cousins left and I never see them.
               March 16, 1974: Birdie’s son, Steve is a car nut too. Think he hopes to have his own shop. He has a
               couple of small foreign cars plus both Birdie and he have Hondas.
               Jan. 7, 1974: Bub has a big family with all 5 girls married and 4 grandchildren and another expected in
               July - the one in Arizona.

               Letter from 617 Sgt C. R. Marrs, Florida Highway Patrol, Box 220 Riverside Station, Miami FL 33135,
               sent in 1973. He lives in Ft Lauderdale. We called him while we were on vacation there in the Hilton
               (owned by Westinghouse) on the Galt mile.
               Dear Leon: Just a note to let you know that we haven’t forgotten you folks. We enjoyed hearing from
               you. The information you sent us is priceless, even though I haven’t had the time to really read all of it.
               Enclosed is some photostats of our family. Some of the dates of death are missing, but I believe you can
               put it all together because from what I read, it fits like a jigsaw puzzle. I’m sorry the photostats did not
               come out better. Since I talked to you on the phone, this place has been busy. We have had the Orange
               Bowl festivities, Parade, Bowl game, a riot, and a terrible plane disaster and we had to work all of it.
               Maybe in a few days things will slow and get back to normal. Our family are all doing well and staying
               busy. I haven’t seen Stanley or heard from him for a couple of weeks, but we will get together soon and
               compare notes. We received a Christmas card from John and Mickey Marrs, Sidney Ohio. (we’ve met
               them too, Leon) and they are OK, even though Mickey had a heart problem. I think I have everyone
               named right on the picture, I hope so. Let us know what happens when you start putting this information

        the home one of his daus Edna at that time. Had just ended his stay with Doris, another dau. They took turns the
        last year of his life. Before that, Doris was the one from the time Mom (Evert’s wife, Grace) died to see her
        father’s needs daily. She is a faithful dau. All the children are fine people and a fine family for their closeness.

                                                 st
        neighborhood. Dad helped with the 1 one built here - a log Church, designed by my sister-in-law, Alice Marrs,
        who was an inspiration to everyone, even now, though she has been with the Lord sinde Dec 1934. Dad was yet
        a kid at heart, for while they were putting mud between the logs, he and the men got in a playful mud fight every
        once in a while. I bet they were a pretty sight to behold. Mom d Nov 21, 1949, from a stroke she’d had just a
        week before. She was so cheerful up to the end when she finally went into a coma in the night in her sleep. She
        had been preparing a big dinner the night she had the stroke and never got to eat of the food she had prepared
        with loving hands for her family she loved so dearly and always felt good to be able to prepare them meals and
        have them all once again at her table. She loved life so very much and it showed in her daily walk with the Lord.
        Her eyes glistened, even though she was in bad health, she did her utmost to hide it so the children would come

       around and not feel they were a burden to her, for indeed, they were never a burden in her mother’s heart. She
       was the finest Christian Lady I ever knew and I know her prayers as well as that of her daughters are still being
       answered. That
        ‘s the kind of close walk here with God they lived. Dad, too, finally the last year gave himself to the Lord, so now
       he too is dwelling with the Savior and his beloved wife, son and daughter gone on before him. To this we ever
       more give the Praise to His name, for soon, He will call us home, the ones of us in Christ who are yet walking the
       pilgrim journey preparing our way with Christ in us to help in all things that confront us. For now, Dad, Mom, Alice
       and Orville’s bodies are in Knightridge cem one day to return for them and be transformed in Glorified bodies
       liked the Lord Jesus Christ. When he returns for His church (all those born again and sins forgiven) Orville
       Raymond died of Whooping Cough and pneumonia Nov 24, 1916 and Alice just a few days before Christmas
       year being 1934 Dec 15. This was another time of grief for Mom and Dad. Alice d of T.B. had been invalid for 5
       years. The night before she went to be with her Lord and Savior, she called all the family to her bedside and
       made each one tell her they would meet her in Heaven. There are only a few more to go to give their life to the
       Lord and I’m sure they will do so before it is too late. Thanksgiving Day wasn’t the same, but we gathered around
       Dad and all brought food to share the day with him. Mom just over at Knightridge (that is her body only), it is
       different without her and lonely too, for Dad sure missed her so deeply, as we all did and still do. When the
       children were little, she would take a rubber boot of Dad’s and make imprints on the roof if there was snow and
       tell the children next morn that ole St. Nick had been there for sure. They saw 2 sons and a son-in-law go off to
       WWII and the Lord brought them safely back home to her. I can remember after I married Leon, we would spend
       weekends with them and I could never getup the next morning without finding Dad had played some prank on
       me, such as putting walnuts in my stockings or shoes B Never will I forget the time they butchered the pigs and
       that evening when I about to retire for the night of rest - low and behold there in the doorway was that awful pig’s
       head sticking up from a big tub looking right at me B that Leon and Dad had put it there and you guessed it -
       scared me scared B you’d better believe it. I could have crowned them right there, you’d of thought they’s
       knowed better doing such a trick - me a city gal. Reason it was even scarier no electric light, they yet had oil
       lamps until around 1947 or 8 did the electric lights come into being at the Marrs home. What a blessed day it was
       when Mom turned on the switch and got electricity for the first time. My, she was thrilled and so very thankful.
       Dad sure was a cute baby, we have his baby picture too, thanks to sis Doris. And their war ration books during
       WWII our son gave them to us when he moved in on the homeplace in 1971. He is buying it from sis Edna. They
       always went up to Snoddy corner to get their mail, but I believe it was moved down in front of their home in 1948.
       Mom had to wash clothes back in the ole spring for years, so it was a long time through the woods and west of
       them that was something our generation doesn’t have to do. They got a well dug just a very short while before
       Mom died, so she wasn’t thrilled, but it wasn’t a good one to support their needs. Today, 1975, it is no more the
       - the casing broke while Dad was alive 3 or 4 times and had to be pulled. Now it is useless. They also carried
       water from where now Lee Hardin family live, but then it was the Bud Brown place. I carried a few buckets for
       Mom myself when Leon and I moved in with them a few months till our home got enclosed enough to move in 2
       rooms of the 4 at that time. Now we have 9 rooms. Mom’s parents were William Baxter and Mahalia Francis
       Head Baxter. Mahalia came here with her parents by covered wagon when she was around 9, which would be
       1863, if 9, but probably a little earlier, because the Civil War was in 1862, so maybe it was 1861 when they came
       west. Hope to find out one day for sure. She may have been 7. Mom did a lot of gardening and canning of her
       labors and my how good a cook she was. Her canned food was out of this world and I know her children miss her
       homecooking as much as us in-laws (out-laws!! Ha ha). We were their children too and it really was a good
       feeling being part of the family. Dad worked at the local creosote plant here for 30 some odd years and walked
       back and forth - rain, sleet and snow. He retired from there and he missed that boiler room very much .. it had
       been part of his life for too long. The Marrs have been here since before 1889 and now we have 3 acres to
       continue on and our oldest son is buying 5 acres for his family. It is the homeplace where Leon was born in.
       Before the present house, with the hip roof, they lived in the original log cabin, but when Edna was little a tornado
       came through here and really tore this ridge up, including the old log cabin (Dan’s note: Leo Marrs, my dad, was
       born in that cabin in 1899) so they had to build again. More could be mentioned here, but I feel I am not doing
       justice to them and know that the children could do a better job. So until then, hope this will do.

       United States when he was a year old and was an American citizen by the time he was 2. In those days, when
       the men of the family took out naturalization papers, his wife and children under 21 automatically became
       citizens. Donawayne, their dau, wrote that her mother was born when all the flags were flying, being Memorial
       Day and the day she died, the flags were all at half mast because of the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Both
                                                          th
       died same day, June 6, 1968, a week after her 75 birthday, and Vic, Daddy, died after a lengthy illness in May,
                                  th
       1952, a wee after his 60 birthday. They are buried at Rose Hills cemetery. Mama and Daddy met through
       Uncle Henry (Slim), they were best friends. When Aunt Edna married Uncle Hopp, Aunt Bertha sent for mama to
       come out and live with her. Aunt Bertha’s marriage to Byron Lomas was always off and on and she was fighting
       a losing battle with T.B., so they moved a lot. When they moved to So. Calif, Uncle Slim boarded with them. My
       dad was his foreman and I guess responsible for Uncle Slim (Henry) learning the carpenter’s trade. Aunt Bertha
       always needed money, so Daddy came to board there too. I’m surprised they didn’t all get TB, but only Mama
       did. As far as I could find out, mama and daddy didn’t even date. However, when Aunt Bertha died, Mama had
       to return to live with Aunt Meck and Uncle Lon Richman. When Uncle Slim told daddy how miserably unhappy
       she was, daddy said he’d marry her if she was willing. Actually, Daddy was a catch for Mama. He was a big
       handsome man with a trade and she was a sickly little thing who had been kicked around a lot. They had a
       stormy marriage which my arrival didn’t improve, but they couldn’t get along without each other. They were
       married Sept 11, 1913 and I came along Oct 10, 1914. Daddy worked for Paramount Pictures for more than 30
       years and never worked it a steady job. He and mama bought their property on Bonnie Beach in 1918. There
       was an old house on the rear of the lot and when they paid off their mortgage, they took out another one and
       Daddy built a new house in front, and when mama died, I sold it. ( Her mother passed away in 1899 with T.B., so
       that made Pearl only 6 yrs of age at that time and that is why Donawayne mentioned her being kicked around a
       lot. Her mother, Kansas, before she died worried over her children and was trying to find kinfolk to take her
       children in before they were separated brothers and sisters as they grew up) I know from a letter of Mercy Marrs
       March that Aunt Pearl also stayed with them and helped with her grandmothe, Mary Jane Sunderland Corns
       Marrs before she died in 1906, Pearl being age 13 at her death in Decatur. The letter is under Mercy March’s)

        the marshy yard for alligators was around. We met one of their adopted sons too while there. Can’t remember

        and when she married Evert in 1906, he was only 12, so Mom took over caring for him. A letter about him

                                                                         th
               On your Way - speed in Auto wash-Western Auto Wash 9 and Western Ave, Los Angeles Calif. To our
               Customers: we are more than pleased to announce PAUL MARRS has come with Western Autowash as
               Manager of Brake Department. As you doubtless know from experience brake specialists that really
               know all kinds of brakes, how to adjust them, how to reline them B how to give you the best possible
               brakes B are might hard to find. PAUL MARRS is such a man. He has been manager of a large brake
               shop in the east, employing seven men and doing a very large business and Paul adjusted ever set of
               brakes that left the shop. He has worlds of experience and has made a splendid name for himself. Paul
               has actually been with us for six weeks, but we have quiet about him until we ourselves were sure that
               he deserved his reputation. And we are not more that sure he does. Many customers have “discovered”
               Paul already and proclaim him to be “the best brake man in southern California.” We know for a fact he
               is at least one of the best. Paul is ably assisted by Bob Christianson and Carl Keith and the 3 of them
               make a team mighty hard to beat. Give your car and yourself a treat and let these boys give you real
               Brakes. You owe it to yourself as well as those who ride with you. Just one accident averted by good
               brakes will make you more than thankful PAUL MARRS is with us. Sincerely yours, Western Autowash.
               P.S. on this letter by his sister, Edna Marrs Hoppes follows: Evert, this was in the ad the Western Auto
               wash got out when Paul went to work for them. He is back in N.Y. now. He had such a good offer he
               could not afford to loose it. $65.00 a week and 5% after taking in $500. Carl Keith also worked with him
               in New York.

               A letter written by Donawayne Anna Nelson Tanner on Dec 5, 1975, she says: I can’t give you any dates
               concerning Uncle Paul and Aunt Lela. They were married very young and were two of the most beautiful
               people I’ve ever seen. Uncle Paul was over six feet tall and very dark. He had small feet, which
               embarrassed him so that he used to buy larger shoes and stuff the toes with toilet tissue paper. Uncle
               Henry (Slim) 387 - also had small feet and used to make me want to murder him when he put on my
               shoes to kid me. I wore 6 2 AAAA, so you know how small his feet were. Aunt Lela’s maiden name was
               Ford. She was almost six feet tall and got more beautiful as she got older. We loved her, but she sorta
               drifted away from us because of their divorce. She died in 1969 and never married until after Uncle Paul
               died. Their older girls is named Bertha Alice Marrs md a Nelson. She is about 58 yrs of age now. The
               other girl was named Marjorie Rose Marrs md a Duncan and I heard only 2 weeks ago that she died last
               January 10, 1975. She was about 55 years of age. Bertha called me two weeks ago to tell me that she
               and her husband were moving to Honolulu for 2 years. Her husband is taking charge of the Systems
               Auto Parks there. They have one son. Marjorie had 3 daus and one son. We are not close, since we’ve
               been older, but we’ve always known how to get in touch. More about Uncle Paul. My dad, who was
               pretty handy himself, said that Uncle Paul was one of the smartest men he ever knew. He said he could
               learn anything faster, then do it better than anyone else. He was a full-fledged engineer when he was
               only a boy. (Leon mentioned to me after reading this that he remembers something about Paul being an
               engineer and that he even traveled because of it - traveled to Argentina, South America. I’m putting this
               down here in hopes that someone who may read this can enlighten us about this and then we can put it
               down correctly. I know personally I admired him so much when I met him at Mom and Dad’s Marrs after
               we were married, that when our first child , a son, was born, we named him Paul after his Uncle Paul and
               his middle name Franklin after his grandfather -Leon’s Dad - Evert Franklin Marrs. I also know that he
               dearly loved Grace (Evert Marrs’ wife) and when she died, he cried so and told how he found happiness
               after Grace and Evert were married and she made a home for him as well and it was the first complete
               home since he had lost his mother Kansas with T.B. He was only 5 when she passed away. When
               Grace died in Nov 1949, he came up from Sanford Florida just to be able to be here for her funeral.
               (Dan’s Note: Leon Marrs told me that this was the first time my dad, Leo Marrs, had seen his brother
               Paul since they were all separated when Leo was a small child. Leon said that Leo cried he was so
               happy to see Paul. This was also the last time that Leo and Paul saw each other.) Truthfully, everyone
               who came in contact with this dear lady, Grace Delista Baster Marrs, loved her. Paul and Aunt Clover
               sent us from Sanford Florida our son Paul’s first baby bed.

        Oct 21, 1971. Dear Kids: Well, I’m going to send you those pictures. If the one of Mercy Berryman, my great
        grandmother is not reproduced soon, it will be lost forever. You are the only ones trying to continue our family
        history. I told you wrong how I got them. Paul visited Aunt Mercy when he lived in Arizona. She gave them to
        him, when he went to New York, he gave them to Edna and she gave them to me. I’d forgotten. Our wheat
        planting is all over out here and it rained an inch the last two days, but it’s clearing off today. I helped Dick
        Tuesday. He had the vet and a neighbor, we branded, vaccinated, etc. 114 head in about 4 hours. He had
        pens, shutes and the vet had a squeeze , no rough stuff. Dan’s girl is Catholic, but never went to anything but
        public schools. We like her, don’t know if Dan will join her church or not. Sure enjoyed your letter Betty. Your’s
        too Leon. Signed Uncle Leo
        July 26, 1971 - Dear Kids; it’s 11 a.m. Just got your letter and pictures will be send them back so you can file
        them. Is the big stone the graves of David Jesse and wife ?? Jesse cem north of Villa Grove Illinois? My
        grandfather’s William Marrs 1800 grave is there. It is not more than 3 ft south of the Petty baby grave. Uncle
        Lon, Aunt Mec Richman and me were at Dan Burnetts and Edna Edwards wedding 1915 or 16. We lived 1/4
        mile east of the Edwards home for 3 years. His wife inherited the farm, he was a poor boy whose folks sacrificed
        to send to Urbana University, at that time the colleges of the 30's produced more than their share of ****ugh. He
        married a rich girl and it went to his head. I’m of the opinion Dave Jesse gave the site or Edward may have
        deeded it. I remember Harold Congelton well, but if he is living he wouldn’t know me as Marrs from a bale of hay.
        Everyone called me Dick Richman. We corresponded with the Kemp sisters of Wichita, they were also great
        grand children of Dye and Mercy Berryman Sunderland. They are dead now (No they aren’t, Uncle Leo, got a
        letter from them the other day will send it one to you to read). We stopped at the Deckert home in Greensburg
        July 18, no one home. I’ll warn you once more if you shake that tree too hard, you may shake down a striped
        ape!! Ha. Uncle Leo.
        Sept 28, 1971 - the clippings of grandmother Mary Jane Sunderland Corns Marrs was given to Sis Pearl in 1917,
        by Aunt Mercy the last time she saw Aunt Mercy. I have a small tintype of my mother Kansas taken in 1875 age
        16. Dan is to be md the week after Christmas in Bismarck N.D. The whole famdamile is planning to go. We
        have to fly, for is snow there. Uncle Leo. P.S. Dad Greenup’s picture was taken while he was home on leave in
        1862 or 1863 from Civil War. He come out of the Civil War with a beard. You two are really shaking the tree. I’m
        glad someone is. Betty, at the Thanksgiving Dinner in 1949 you brought persimmon pudding. Would you send
        the recipe for it? We have wild ones here too, but no one ever heard of it till we told them.

        1871 in Tencoping Sweden. he d June 12, 1922. We have her picture too. A letter from their dau to us on Sept
        7, 1973 - portions of it: A brief history of our Johnson group - my father, Otto August Johnson, was b in
        Tincoping, Sweden in 1871 and came to the U.S. when he was 17 yrs of age - presumably to make his fortune
        and return to the homeland, but not making out that well, he never returned to Sweden to the sorrow of his
                                                                                                                             th
        parents. He married the first time in the Pacific Northwest and they had 4 ch, his wife died with the birth of the 4
        child who he left with a sister in Oregon while he took the three other ones and moved to Kansas where he met
        our mother, Edoth May Marrs. They were md in 1908 and had 5 children. I’m the youngest. My father had an
        accident on the farm which eventually took his life when I was one year old. So I don’t remember him. My
        mother, being left with 5 children and no money, left the farm and moved to the small town of Eudora, Kansas,
        where she managed to keep us fed and clothed by taking in washings, ironings, cleaning homes, and selling
        door to door. About 5 years later, my mother lost our oldest sister, Ethyl, in death - another severe blow in such
        a short time. She bravely went on taking care of the 4 of us remaining. She managed to get us all thro high
        school and she never became bitter or full of self pity, but was always cheerful and able to laugh. My bothers all
        worked in the CCC Camps (Civilian Conservation Corps), which helped us out a lot. Two of us, Alvin and I,
        managed to go to college. With all the boys all gone from home and word coming about the crutial health of our
        grandparents, Daniel and Lottie Marrs in Calif, my mother and I moved out there in 1939. My mother hadn’t seen
        her parents for about 20 years and I had never seen them. She got to be with them for a few years before they
        passed away. Her sister, my Aunt Florence, had been caring fro the aged parents. She having become a
        Seventh Day Adventist when she was a young lady, shared her faith with us. So my mother and I joyfully
        accepted Christ and all His word and were baptized together the same year we arrived. Such a thrilling and
        meaningful message relevant to the times and to our needs. I had never heard, nor yet has it surpassed in my
        experience. It did so much for me I decided I wanted to pass it on to others, so went to an Adventist college and
        studied Bible, History, Prophecy, personal evangelism and all the wonderful related material and became a Bible
        Teacher. I have been teaching the glories of His word ever since B a period of 30 years now this summer. I have
        had the privilege of introducing hundreds of people to Jesus as their Lord and Savior. What a thrill such a work
        it is! What “Amazing Grace”, indeed has been extended to us poor sinners! And how wonderful it is that Jesus is
        soon coming back again. Indeed, that is the “blessed hope” according to Titus 2:13. I’m so glad you folks
        believe in Jesus too. He is the only hope for this world and the best hope it could have. He is so wonderful! I
        couldn’t live without Him. My oldest brother, Leslie, lives in Prescott, Arizona and is a foreman in US Motors
        Plant. My second brother, Carl, is an electrical engineer and lives near Riverside, California. My youngest
        brother, Alvin, is a pharmacist and lives in Camas, Washington. On the last letter from Leslie, he said he would
        like to get something on the Marrs family tree. He wanted to know about a book on the Marrs family that my
        Doctor cousin, Walford Marrs in Texas has. When I was there 10 yrs ago, he said a copy would cost $15.00. I
        have not been in touch with them lately, but will have to try to reestablish contact thro his brother here in Calif.
        Will close for now. Write soon. God Bless and keep you folks. Love, cousin Mary.

       Letter for Aug 6, 1973 Mr and Mrs Elbert N. Alderman, 8921 Edgemoor Dr, Santee Calif 92071
       Elbert retired in March, age 64, he works one day a week at his old job - Wheel alignment and front end repairs
       on his successor’s day off. He had worked for this firm about 23 years. By working 1 day a week, besides
       keeping his Social Security, he is able to keep the group insurance till we are eligible for Medi-Care. He took 3
       days off in June and we had almost a months vacation trip. It was 45 years since I graduated from high school in
       Effingham, Kansas. We took our travel trailer and went back there for the class reunion. We visited a cousin of
       Elbert’s in Alexander, KS and another in Topeka, also 2 fo my cousins there. After the reunion, we went to
       Independence MO to visit Sylvia and family. From there, we drove to Decatur, GA to visit our youngest dau Doris
       and family. She is head of the Music Dept at Clayton Jr. College. Nearby her husband is professor of Music at
       Georgia State University in Atlanta. The are both teaching this summer. She has her classes in the mornings
       and he has his in the afternoons, so one can be home with the children. Lenora, age 13, and Richard, age 7,
       both play violin and piano. Elbert’s parents grew up on neighboring farms in Kansas, about 2 miles south of
       Larkinburg. Florence later went to Nebraska to take nurses training in a Seventh Day Adventist Hospital. By the
       time she graduated, Virgil, who was a carpenter, was also working up in Nebraska. They got married and lived
       there about a year, then returned to the old neighborhood in Kansas and bought a farm. He continued to do
       carpenter work in the community. In the summer of 1916, he had an ear infection, a mastoid operation and later
       complications which caused his death. Daniel Marrs had moved to Lawrence, KS about the time Jay entered KU
       (Kansas University). After Virgil’s death, Florence took Elbert and Sylvia to Lawrence where they lived for a time
       with their parents. She resumed dressmaking so she could be at home. When Elbert was about 8 or 9, he went
       to live with an aunt and uncle on a farm near Larkinburg. He was with them most of the time until he was old
       enough to be on his own. He then got a job as apprentice plumber. He worked quite a while, but decided he’d
       rather be an auto mechanic and that has been his work ever since, except during WWII when he worked for
       Boeing at Wichita as a welder. I worked there too for a time as a machine operator. Before our marriage, I had
       taught in a rural school in Kansas for 2 years. Daniel and Lottie Marrs moved to San Diego Calif as they grew
       older for the mild climate. Eventually, she fell and broke her hip. Not trusting doctors and hospitals, she
       persuaded Daniel to just take care of her and let nature heal it. By the time their children knew of it, it healed in
       a position that left her in a wheel chair the rest of her life. Elbert’s mother sold her home in Lawrence at that time
       B 1933 - and came out to San Diego to look after her parents. Some years after their death went to work in a
       cafeteria for 2 or 3 years and also did some dressmaking along for special customers. She was always busy and
       cheerful - never married again. High blood pressure and a series of strokes took her life. She was a wonderful
       mother in law. Our oldest daughter, Dorothy, married a Marine, so she has bivec in many places. Their home is
       in Garden Grove, and he is now retired after 20 yrs of service, which included Korea and 2 tours of duty in Viet
       Nam. They are only about 100 miles from us so we get together fairly often. Their oldest dau, Leah, md over a
       year ago, but lives only about 2 miles from her parents so they see one another often. Barbara, their youngest,
       graduated from high school last spring and is to go to work in Sept in the city of Santa Anna Print Shop. She is
       busy in the meantime brushing up on her typing. Signed, Elbert and Hope Alderman. (A short time after this
       letter was written, Elbert passed away, Dec 12, 1973, age 64 of massive pulmonary embolism. It followed minor
       surgery for hernia only 3 days earlier.

       Aunt Edna and Uncle Hop in 1983. Aunt Edna wrote the following in letter Sept 16, 1972. I’m sending you a
       snapshot of a cousin and wife who visited us in Los Angeles, Gifford and Edna Marrs, parents of Donald Marrs
       who you said called you. Edna Marrs came the winter after Uncle Carroll Hoppes died in Aug and spent a week
       with me. I didn’t know she had died until you sent the list of Uncle Dan’s ch. I knew Florence, Edoth, Ralph and
       Gifford as well as Uncle Dan and Aunt Lottie, we visited Uncle Dan and Aunt Lottie many times in San Diego.
       They were Seven Day Adventist, that is Florence, Edoth, and Aunt Lottie. Uncle Dan and boys were not. I never
       met Jay Marrs, he moved to Ames IA after we left there. As you know, Ames was Carroll’s home - b and raised
       there. Ralph Marrs was you Uncle Henry’s double - both had red hair. Out of a crowd at Union Depot in Los
       Angeles, Uncle Carroll and Uncle Vic picked him out. There was a junior high school in Omaha NE named for
       him and several years ago a write up on him in Reader’s Digest for his teaching a blind student. He was a very
       fine man and his son, Merton or Roy as he likes to be called, is a very fine person. They too have been to see
       me. When I lived in Los Angeles, they lived in Ventura Calif and he teaches in Oxnard Calif. I’m just fine and
       hope when the curtain falls, I will just go to sleep. Signed, Aunt Edna Marrs Hoppes.
       Donald also sent us a picture of Gifford, Ralph and Jay in an old photo in a horse and buggy. As well as a group
       picture of Florence, Gifford, Ralph and Edoth taken later years.

       I have been trying to catch up on some things since returning from Michigan. Our office was moved Jan 1, 1972
       and I closed out books for etc, but did not move to Ankery. I had worked for this Dairy Company for 18 years. It
       was a nice association, but I missed our own business. Jay and I had a New York Life Partnership and I
       managed all details. Jay was an electrical engineer, but only worked at it about 4 years. He loved to sell, when
       I met him at reunion in Kansas, where I was a Senior, he was in insurance. We are getting used to 3 ministers at
       our Methodist church. Rather hard, as our members had been here 12 yrs of course it is a large church for tours
       of people and students. We were md in Christian church C.K.C, where Jay was in a quartet. But I have been a

       therefore all her letters are precious to me. Res 500 Edgar Ave, Effingham IL 62401. While we were there he
       took care of a car wash in Effingham. We got the privilege of eating dinner at their house and it was such a good
       meal. We will always remember how kind they were to us and in helping us in our search for Marrs. They took
       us around the places that was of interest for Marrs - where born, lived, died, etc. Also took us to the cemetery
       and showed us the important graves of the family. He has actions like our Dad Marrs - not looks, just actions.

        b. Sept 7, 1883 Jessamine Co KY md Dec 28, 1907 Sadie Lanaham b Cincinnati OH dau of Margaret Taylor and
        Sheppard Lanaham. They live at R#1 Nicholasville KY, built their house new, moved in on June 20, 1938, paid
        $10,000 for it and paid 504 an hour for carpenters. They lit all the lights in the house and went out and looked at
        it. It was the night of Joe Louis and Max Schmelling fight and it lasted a half minute - Louis knocked him out.
        They all hurried back in to hear the rest of the fight, but to their surprise, it was all over. This year, 1970, that we
        had the privilege to meet them in their home. He had put up by hisself 7,000 bales of hay and he was a young 87
        yrs of age. His wife, Sadie, drives and gardens and does all her daily work. She is 82 yrs young (b 1888). They
        live on road call the Ash Grove Pike, north of Nicholasville, KY. He told us about one of the early members of the
        local Christian Church who paid his tithes to the pastor - a barrel of bourbon whiskey. So of his relation is an
        auctioneer of pure breed race horses up at Lexington KY. Sold more race horses that any man in the USA. He
        sold one for a million dollars. His middle name is Marrs, forgot what he said his last name is. He told us it was a
        Marrs cemetery of that year too, on Catnip Hill Rd. There are 2 grave sites and some stones are readable, they
        were Foleys and Farra’s. He told me Samuel (1740) is buried there as it is his home place that he bought when
                                                                                            rd
        he came and settled KY. Bur there in 1817. Some of his children and his 3 wife is also there (no stones
        standing). This all now is owned by a syndicate of Horse breeding plantation - it is a huge place and a beautiful
        house like those you see on the big southern plantations and in our history books. It was the first time we ever to
        be on one of these plantations. It sure was a privilege to be there
         and see for ourselves. The veterinarian lived in that huge house with his family, to care and oversee the horses.
        There are no homes as regal as this up in our Indiana. We had to travel many acres on them before coming to
        this first gravesite up beyond this big house. It was surrounded by stone fence. Second grave site was several
        more acres away, so more traveling to get to it and it was near the now caretaker’s house. Both were stoned
        fence around, but being hundreds of years old, the graves were in terrible disarray. There was a family from
        Holland living in the Caretakers house and they had a great big St. Bernard dog. They offered to help us the next
        morn it we stayed over, to give us shovels and they too, if they had time to dig around the now nearly buried
        stones. But we knew we had to head home and wish we could stay. We knew, though we were fortunate to be
        able to find our Samuel 1740 home and gravesite. Although nothing remains but the graves that would remind
        one of when he dwelt there. Thanks to Clarence for telling us how to get to this property on Catnip Hill Rd.
        Clarence was one of 9 children and not one of them smoked or drank liquor, but their grandson is William Marrs

       up at Columbus Ohio University studying to be a veterinarian. Clarence and Sadie had 2 ch, a son is a tobacco
       buyer - yet his uncles and father never used it. Now he sells it. Their dau is a high school teacher of math at Oak
       Ridge, Tenn. She never married and when she first started as a teacher in Oak Ridge, it was a wilderness. What
       a beautiful home Clarence and Sadie have - so very homy and large too. It was a privilege just to be there. They
       gave us some very large turnips and would have given us a bushel, but we appreciated the ones they gave us.
       They were fine eating too. Sadie and I had a wonderful time discussing lineage and also of our Lord and Savior.
       They belong to the Christian Church, not modern as so many are today. She pointed out they believe in the
       virgin birth and being born again and also enjoy music as we do in our church. They now farm 72 acres. One of
       his neighbors, a mortician, is in Nicholasville, said Clarence could out fish anybody around there. He has one
       remaining brother living, of the 9 children. Nephew of Clarence, John West, son of Lulie and E. H. West, his
       grfather Marrs quit the church because of music in it and never returned. He was a real straight-laced person
       and radical in every way. (James Marrs) Our visit was Oct 23, 1970. Sadie told us that Martha and Annie Marrs
       md brothers Robert and James Smith, one d your. They moved from Woodward Co KY to Jessamine Co KY
       about 1840. Amanda Hamon was from Scott Co KY and she d when the oldest child was 14 and the youngest
       about 2 (Clarence her husband) was about 4 yrs of age at that time and the 2 yr old d shortly after his mother d.
                            nd
       Clarence was the 2 youngest. His father never md again, guess he couldn’t find another woman to marry him
       with 8 children, Sadie mentioned. As I write this now, in 1975, I wonder how our dear cousins are?? We had
       hoped to get back down to see them, but we’ve never got to yet.

        you and glad to hear from some cousins I haven’t met. I have been a little down lately, but I’m working on the
        book. I’ll gather all that I can and send. I have made a few phone calls and wrote some letters, trying to collect
        all I can. It may not be a lot, but it will be what I can find out. If you are ever through Bluefield and Pocahontas,
        come see me. who was your mother and father, grandmother and grandfather? I don’t think I know half of my
        kin. I would love to know them all. So bye for now, your cousin Marie Green. Mrs. Fred Green, box 745,

        James K. Marrs, Jr, 63, one of Houston’s most loyal Baylor supporters, although he had never attended this
        university, died at his home on Sept 14, 1960. Mr. Marrs started the Marrs Insurance Agency in 1931 and for the
        last 12 years had been in partnership with his son, James Hugh Marrs (829) BBA 1949. Mr. Marrs was treasurer
        and a deacon of the south main Baptist Church and a member of the Masonic Lodge in Galveston. He had
        always supported all Baylor drives in Houston and it was his contribution a year ago which put the Houston
        Baylor Club Scholarship fund over the top. He was also a generous donor to the athletic scholarship program.
        This year, the Houston Baylor Club has decided to name its scholarship the James K. Marrs, Jr Athletic
        Scholarship. Immediate survivors include his widow, the former Mary Claypool, BA 1922 or Garnet St, Houston
        TX, two sons, George R. Marrs 1945-1948, and James Hugh Marrs BBA 1949, both of Houston and a dau Mrs.

       md on Mar 6, 1904, Bethlehem Church and Mary Harlin Comer. Letter from her to us in Nov 30, 1965: Dear
       Leon Marrs and family’ Dear unknown friends or perhaps relatives! Recently my nephew, W. F. Marrs, sent me
       a letter you had written to him requesting information concerning the Marrs generation. As he did not have much
       information you see. I’m a lady of 80 yrs old and my eyesight has failed so much I shall write a short record on
       another sheet and hope you can read it. My father was William Levi Marrs. He married Mary Ellen Payne, to this
       union were b 4 boys and 5 girls. My oldest brother, Dr. John Frank Marrs was a successful Doctor of
       Tompkinsville KY. He d May 7, 1946. Fred F. Marrs, another brother, lives in Santa Ana, CA, another brother ,
       William Faunus Marrs, deceased, is the father of W.F. Marrs a merchant at Mt.Herman KY, to whom you wrote
       the letter. My youngest brother, Herman L. Marrs, lived in Chicago IL, or rather in River Forest IL. A son, Homer
       Le Marrs, still living there, also a dau, a registered nurse and wife of Dr. Earl N. Silver lives there. My brother d
       June 25, 1962. Two of my sisters have passed away and two are living as widows and growing old. You may
       have difficulty in making out this letter I have written, also the record of the Marrs generations which I’m
       enclosing. My pen has give out, so I’m finishing in pencil. Yes, I believer you are right in stating that the most
       important thing to all of us is that we are Christians born of the Spirit and to live for Jesus. The most of the Marrs
       families I have known were and are member
       s of the Methodist, yet many of my relatives are members of the Baptist church. May we all live that we will have
       a home in Heaven. I trust the Lord will bless you and yours family. Let me hear from you, a man Neal A. Chism
       of Lincoln NE is to make a record book of the Marrs family. His grandmother was Mily Virginia Marrs Chism, dau
       of Henry Bradshaw Marrs. I shall send your letter to him. I Pray the Lord will bless you and your family. A friend
       or perhaps a relative. Maud Marrs Comer .......I know she is with the Lord by the time of this writing 1973. We
       found this out when we visited with W. F. Marrs at Mt.Herman KY. She was in a nursing home and didn’t know
       anyone. We were too late to meet her on this side of Jordan, but when we meet on the other shore, what a
       meeting it will be. We were there in Mt. Herman in 1970, Aug 22. W. F. Marrs has been Postmaster there since
       1933. Maud and I corresponded after our first letter, but never knowing we were actually kin until 1973 and too
       late to let her know our findings. I’d like to give her a special place here for she was the start of our long pilgrim
       search of Marrs and now we’ve got a lot of data because of her first data to us - it kept us going on.....

       588. Otto Franklin Marrs (339. Franklin Marrs)
       b Dec 28, 1881 and at age year and a half moved to Meade Kansas in a covered wagon. There he drilled the first
       artesian well in Artesian Valley, the beginning of the agriculture in Kansas, now well under irrigation. He studied
       mechanical engineering at Kansas University and md Maude Ella Pinnick in Fowler, KS, where he operated the
       city power plant. He moved to Los Angeles and began working for the Ford division there. It was his job to work
       the bugs out of the new “Tin Lizzies”, reporting his findings directly to Henry Ford, who order necessary tooling
       changes at the factory. Later, he returned to Kansas in a Model T Ford, over mere wagon trails. About that time,
       the inventor of the combine ferreted out the young and clever machinist, Otto Marrs, who spent months in
       Hutchinson making and fitting together the parts on the plans came to him form the drawing board. In 1923, he
       brought his family to Texas, starting his nursery in 1925. When the Ferguson Ford hit the market, Marrs was
       immediately interested and started hooking up unique pieces of machinery to the tractor to adapt it to this area.
       He was the first to make a 3-point hookon border disc, and many other arrangements. 18yrs ago, he rigged up
       a spring shanked Ford cultivator for his orchard and threw away his disks. Many orchard owners and caretakers
       have found the cultivator to be a great moisture saver. Without the help of his wife, Maude Ella, the family tree
       might still be a bush, for it was she who packed out oranges by the bushels and expressed them to friends all
       over the United States to determine their shipping quality and to get consumer reactions in their quality. Present

       b. Dec 17, 1885 Ohio md Dec 2, 1908 Rosa McGuire he d Aug 27, 1970; a short biography written by him of his
       parents or by his sister Dessie Marrs Masters, anyway, it is a good history of the family:

       My father, Frank Marrs, was the fourth child of John and Fannie Marrs. They had seven children, three boys,
       Warren, Frank, and Alva, and four girls, Mary, Ann, Edna and Mattie. All were born and raised on farm north of

       Larwell, Indiana, Whitley county. Pa was 12 years old when their father died of lingering illness - consumption
       (dan’s note - I think consumption was a term used for TB in those days), at the age of 42. Aunt Ann got her feet
       wet at her father’s funeral, took cold and it developed into TB, and a year later she died at the age of 15.
       Grandma raised the family until they were on their own or married. She built a new house that they had planned
       to build and it is still there. Harley Marrs bought it and his wife and son live in it. When Pa was about 20 years
       old, he went to work for his Uncle Joe Marrs, who was a brother of John Marrs, my grandpa and lived in Ohio.
       Uncle Joe was married to Ma’s sister, Aunt Rean (Syrena Bryan md. Josiah Marrs 183). Ma was helping Aunt
       Rean care for Cora and Dell and help with the chores. Ma was in the barn milking and Pa was feeding the stock
                                                                                                                          rd
       in the barn and that is where they knew each other the first time. My mother, Amy Rebecca Bryan, was the 3
       child of William J. Bryan and Isabell Deweese Bryan. They had 7 children, 6 girls, Syrena, Elizabeth Ann, Amy
       Rebecca, Aurilla (Edna Moore’s mom), Nancy, and Frances and one boy, William D. Bryan. Grandpa Bryan was
       a distant cousin of William Jennings Bryan, who was the great orator and ran for President of the United States.
       Grandpa died at age 48. He had washed his sheep in the canal to shear them, took a cold and died at the age of
       48. Uncle Will was 5 years old when his father died. Ma and the older girls worked in the fields with their father
       and after his death, Grandma and the girls run the farm until Uncle Will was old enough. He was the youngest
       child. Uncle Will came to Kansas in 1894, then Grandma rented her land, bought a home in Sidney, Ohio, where
       she died at age 95. Pa and Ma were married Dec 24, 1897 at Fort Jefferson, Ohio. They left for his folks near
       Larwell, Indiana, where they made their home for a few years. They had 9 children, five boys, Roscoe Raymond
       who died at a age of 3, Otto Franklin b Dec 28, 1881, Ralph Lee b Dec 17, 1885, Walter Warren b Nov 10, 1894,
       Chester I b Mar 22, 1900 and four girls, Fannie Isabell b Feb 24, 1888, Dessie Dell b Jan 11, 1890, Edna Edith b
       Jan 6, 1892 and Lela b May 28, 1897. Their first two children were born at Grandma Marrs in Indiana. In the 80's
       the cry was “Go West, young man, go west”, Ma and the two little boys were to Ohio to her folks and Pa and
       Uncle Warren headed west in the Spring of 1884. They got to Wellington Kansas and bought lots in Oxford, a
       small town near Wellington. It was here, on May 21, 1884, that Pa received a telegram from Ma that Roscoe had
       passed away with scarlet fever. Pa left immediately for Sidney Ohio. Ma had the doctor to see Otto who had
       scarlet fever and Roscoe came and stood by Ma’s knees and said AI’m not going to have that nasty stuff, am
       I?@ In a few minutes, he began to vomit and have diarrhea. The doctor did everything he could for him, but God
       took the little fellow home just 9 hours after he was stricken with this terrible disease. Aunt Ann and Aunt Rilla
       had lost their little girls just days before and Ma had done Aunt Ann’s washing and Otto and Rosco had gotten
       the germ from her clothing. Pa, Ma and Otto went to Larwell, Indiana, again and I think it was at this time that Pa
       run a butcher shop in Larwell for about a year, but he wasn’t satisfied, he wanted to make a home for his family
       in the West. Ma and Otto went to Ohio and lived with Aunt Ann until Ralph was born in December. Pa and Uncle
       Loyal Wingard (Aunt Edna’s husband) headed west in the spring of 1885 and landed in Leoti, Kansas (west of
       Scott City), where Uncle Loyal made his home, but Pa went on to Meade. Aunt Edna took her little son, Harry, to
       Leoti, Kansas when he was 3 or 4 months old. In Feb or Mar, Harry was born Nov 7, 1885 they were only there
       about 4 months when Aunt Edna had Typoid fever. They sent for Pa at Meade to come at once and Grandma
       went to her bedside as fast as the train would carry her. Aunt Edna passed away July 3, 1886 at the age of 23
       and was buried in Leoti cemetery. Grandma Marrs took Harry and raised him as her own. Pa filed on a
       homestead 2 2 miles northwest of Meade on what is known as the Jim Woods pasture. He dug a half dug out,
       put a roof and had one window and one door. A small room on the end with a square opening in the main
       dugout, where you could reach to put milk, butter, eggs and things to be kept cold. He had dug a well, built a little
       barn and gathered cow chips for fuel. He bought a team and wagon and freighted from Dodge City to Meade. It
       took several days to make the trip. The railroad hadn’t come to Meade yet. The first passenger train on the Rock
       Island was to come through Meade Sunday Feb 12, 1888. On Dec 31, 1885, a terrible blizzard struck Meade
       County and lasted through New Year’s Day. In a near zero temperature, a fine, blinding snow driven by high
       winds covered everything. Thousands of cattle froze and smothered in the storm. Pa took his two hens and a
       rooster and his dog
        into the dugout and he was snowed in for three days. The snow drifted over the door so deep he couldn’t get out
       until a neighbor came and shoveled the snow off. He lived here a year, when Ma, Otto, 4 yrs old, and Ralph 6
       months old, came by train to Cimarron, Kansas in June 1886. Pa met them with a team and lumber wagon. It
       took them all day to drive home to the claim. They made their home here for seven years. Ma would walk to
       Meade and work all day for 504 at any kind of work she could get. She often pulled a little wagon to bring her
       day’s work home in what she needed. She raised a little yellow pie melon or poor-mans peach, we called them.
       She made butter out of them for our bread. Vegetables were scarce on that place. We always had milk, butter
       and eggs. Three girls were born in this dugout home, Fannie, Dessie and Edna. Pa planted some trees and one
       Osage Orange tree still alive when Lela and I went there in 1965 and took pictures. Pa had a chance to buy a
       relinquisnment of 160 acres, 11 mile northeast fo Meade, known as Artesian Valley, for sever head of cattle and
       $150. In June, 1892, we moved into another dugout. We stayed with the Frank Sourbier family until the roof
       from the claim could be transferred to this new dugout. We didn’t live in this very long - only about a year and a
       half, until Pa bought a store building in Jasper, now known as Missler. He made two rooms out of this building

       and I can remember my mother tacking cheese cloth over the wood walls then pasting wall paper onto the
       cheese cloth to make it warmer and more liveable. Warren was born in this old store building and Uncle Will
       Bryan came to Kansas and stayed with us four years. Warren was just a baby crawling when Pa bought a
       four-room house in Meade and moved it on skids and running gears of a wagon with several teams of horses -
       moved it to the Valley in the spring of 1895. He set it beside the Artesian wells in the valley where he drilled a
       well which flowed 60 gallons a minute. There were several Artesian wells in the valley when he moved there,
       but none flowed as much as ours at that time. He added a kitchen to the east side of this house. This is where
       Lela was born. In the summer of 1898, Grandma Bryan, who had been visiting us and Uncle Will, who married
       Ruby Marts took his bride and left for Sidney, Ohio. Our colored man, Frank Johnson who worked for leaches
       came several to see Pa about working for him, but Pa hesitated, but finally let him come on January 1, 1900. On
       March 22, 1900, a 12 pound bundle of joy came to live with us, he was named Chester I. On April 1, 1901, Pa
       bought the W. F. Foster quarter joining the home quarter on the southwest for $1,000. On May 19, 1903, Pa
       bought another quarter of land from John W. Luttrell for $800, who had filed on it in 1898. In later years, he
       bought another quarter known as the Rice quarter and an 80 with a school house on it. There was acres and
       acres of alfalfa, this required lots of help, so we girls worked in the hay fields to keep from hiring so much help.
       One girl, usually Fannie, would help Ma with the cooking, 10-12 loaves of bread was baked every day. We
       raised everything we ate except flour, sugar and coffee. We had a wild plum patch and sold bushels and bushels
       besides making gallons of jelly and butter. We had a raspberry patch and lots of grapes, cherries, peaches,
       apricots and apples. We dried corn, apples, turnips, beets and potatoes in heaps of straw and dirt. We canned
       hundreds of quarts of fruits and tomatoes. And buried apples, etc. Pa was a jack of all trades, he had a
       blacksmith shop, did welding and all the repair work when machinery was being used. We all worked, believe
       me. But we had our fun too, like baseball games, croquet, horseback riding in the summer and in the winter it
       was school from five months to seven or eight months. We would have skating parties, taffy pulls, literary,
       spelling bees and old time dances in the homes. Pa played the violin for many dances. Otto and Uncle Will
       chorded on the guitar or Fannie or he would chord on the organ. We had many a dance and oyster supper in our
       home. You have noticed all through this biography I have called my parents Ma and Pa. That is what we were
       taught to call them. They didn’t want to be called Papa and Mama. Ask Lela. By the time we were all married,
       except Warren, Lela and Chester, Pa built an eleven room house in 1911. Ma’s health failed when she had a gall
       bladder operation in 1913. After that she went to Otto’s in Los Angeles California and stayed about 18 months
       until she recuperated. I don’t remember how long they lived on the farm until they rented to the boys and they
       spent many winters with Otto and Maude near Donna Texas. They went to several reunions in Indiana and had
       gone to one in September 1938 when Pa took sick at Uncle Alva Marrs in Larwell, Indiana and had come home.
       She called Lela and me to come down and one of us was with her from then on through her illness. Chester and
       family lived on the home place then. Ma wanted to go to Dodge City to the hospital, as she wanted to try
       treatments for cancer of the stomach. She was only there a few days until she wanted to go to Lela’s, so Dr.
       Robb sent the ambulance for her and I rode the ambulance with her to Lela’s. She passed away on Monday,
       Dec 19, 1938, at the age of 81. This tribute to our mother was written by Frank Fuhr, of the Globe News by
       Benjamin C. Hilliard of the Colorado Supreme Court, Denver, CO - he lived in Meade and knew our parents.

       A tribute to the late Mrs. F. Marrs, he says AMrs Marrs’ life, as I study it, typifies the lives of all the women who aid
       in the developing of a community from the raw materials, many of whom did precisely that thing in Meade county.
       To women, more than man, is due the real progress of the world. She excels in modesty .. man must need to
       hop on to the top rail on occasions, flap his wings and advert to his mighty accomplishments, but woman, buoyed
       by faith and constancy, that male knows not of, neither fails to strive to honor to the end nor paused to consider
       what already she has accomplished. She excels in stamina, courage, industry, everything. Only the Omnipotent
       can command her to cease her labors. In obedience to an order from that source, Mrs. Marrs has surrendered
       that working tools of her life’s achievements.
                AN HERE, AT LAST IS SLEEP, THE GIFT OF GIFTS
                THE TENDER NURSE WHO LIFTS, THE SOUL GROWN WEARY OF
                THE WAITING WORLD
                AND LAYS IT, WITHOUT THOUGHT ALL FURLED. IT’S FEARS FORGOTTEN
                AND IT’S PASSIONS STILL, ON THE DEEP BOSOM OF THE ETERNAL WILL.

       Now Pa goes on alone, only for a few short years. Most of the winters he spent with Otto and Maude in Texas
       and most of the summers with Lela and George. Since we had moved to Colorado by that time, he would go and
       visit the other kids a few weeks at a time, but was never satisfied to stay away from his home very long. In the
       last years, he stayed with Lela and passed away at her home, Feb 15, 1944 age 85.

        with their trailer here in our yard. My we will miss them this year of 1975. They came 2 yrs in a row and they
        were sure missed when they left for home. Here in 1972 and 1973 - Joe is not well and that is why he can’t stay
        in our climate - only has one lung now. First letter, June 23, 1971 - Greetings: we were on a little trip and when
        we arrived home yesterday, found your letter. I will list the family tree as I have it. William came to America
        1720, Samuel b 1740, William b. 1770, Samuel b 1798, Josiah b 1838, Edgar O b 1872 and Joseph A b 1900,
        me. This is all I have, but Mable Marrs, Fowler Kansas, has made quite a study of this sort of thing and might
        have information that I do not have. I hope that this will be of some help to you. If you are ever in this part of the
        country, stop by, we will be happy to see you. Best of luck, Joseph A Marrs.
        July 23, 1971: Thanks for the info. I was born and raised around Sidney Ohio. in 1918 my folks moved on to a
        farm a mile or so up the creek from the grave stone you mentioned of Samuel Marrs 1798. I had forgotten all
        about it. I will look it up the next time I am in that neighborhood. Hopefully next month. We are planning to
        attend the Marrs reunion in Fowler Kansas July 31 and Aug 1. Hope to see you there. The best way to find
        about Arizona is come by and we will show you the sights. We like it very much - have lived her since 1961. It
        does get hot her in July and Aug. It has been up to 109, but is dry so it is much easier to live with than the hot
        humid weather back east. I am enclosing a picture taken in our back yard. I’m the tall one. I am not one for
        having his picture taken, so they don’t come out very good. I was born Feb 11, 1900. It was nice of you to write.
        signed Joseph A Marrs, Sunland USA.
        Feb 14, 1974: Greetings all. Thank you for the rememberace of my arrival at the three score and ten plus four
        milestone in this veil of tears. It arrived right on schedule. It don’t seem any different to me except that I seem to
        be much slower, more forgetful and inclined to be more grouchy. We went to a campout over the weekend and
        Lurene had a big birthday cake we all enjoyed the campout and the cake. Also thanks for the gift. It will be used
        to remove rings around the adams apple. The weather here is great - still cool at night but the days are in the
        70's. I spend quite a lot of time in my workshop, I have a woodburning stove installed and I burn anything that I
        can scrounge in it. I did have a gas heater, but due to the energy hassle, I changed and I like it much better, it is
        cheaper. I built a cabt’ for Lurenes sewing room. It came out pretty nice and she is quite pleased with it. Our
        health has held up pretty well, just have the usual old age things. Since we came home, Lu was in the Hosp for
        the removal of a tumor under her right breast. We are thankful it was not malignant. She is now over it and
        almost back to normal. Yesterday she made the announcement that today was yard cleaning day, so we may
        just get some cleaning done today. Lurene told me to include in this message that she will answer your letter
        sometime in the future, as she is still behind from Christmas. I had a job lined up, but could not be hired because
        Arizona has a state law that no one over 65 can be hired into the school system. I am glad, or at least don’t feel
        too bad, as I am a firm believer that I should be an energy saver (my own). Enough of this for now so will ring off
        wishing all of you the best of luck, much happiness and all that goes with living. Much love, Joe and Lureen
        Marrs. He is retired from the National Cash Register Co.

       Dear Cousins: Leon and Betty, so nice to hear from another part of the Marrs family. William Marr of Scotland
       arrived in America 1720 .. Samuel Marrs b. 1740, William Marrs 1770, had son Samuel Marrs 1798 July 16, bro
       to your William Marrs 1800. I’m the youngest of 6 children; the oldest Joseph A. Marrs 1900 (has visited with
       Leon and Betty in 1972 and 1973). I have collected much of the background on bits and peices of paper - fully
       intending to get it all correlated someday. I have a map of the various clans in Scotland, showing the tartans,
       crests and shields; also some of the Gordon Olson clan plaid, which I purchased from the Scottish house in
       London. I have been trying to get additional information about the Marr family from 1720 back, but so far I’m at
       a standstill. If you are ever this way again, would love to have you stop by and see us. Are you a relative of the
       Marrs family living around Decatur or Columbia City IN? I loved hearing from you. Sincerely, Lucille.

        a sad time in losing Alice, for she gave strength and comfort to so many with such a strong faith in her Lord and
        Savior, Jesus Christ. She was well ready to meet Him in eternity. She had lain for 5 years with TB and had been
        a patient loving girl through all her affliction. She was also responsible for drawing the plans for the old log
        church, now replaced by present structure, in 1939 .. Mt Calvary Baptist Church. I believe with all my heart, even
        though she has been long with the Lord, her life prayers have affected the rest of us in the family to want to know
        the Lord. First one was her dear mother, then her sister Doris, then myself (sister in law, Betty) then her brother
        and my husband, Leon Marrs and we are serving the Lord now at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church and I know too, that
        she and Mother Grace’s prayers are still being answered. For I know without a doubt that Evert, her father, is
        with the Lord now too. Again affected, I’m sure by her’s and wife’s Grace prayers on his behalf

        b Jan 14, 1913 md Feb 28, 1942 Lucy Della Hamm, b Feb 18, 1918, dau of Joseph and Lilly (Ham) Hamm. Bill
        worked for Gordon Anderson Oil Company on south Walnut, Bloomington IN, until his death and then the new
        owner and finally bought it himself and operated it until he had to retire because of a heart attach, which almost
        cost him his life. He gave us all a trying time at the hospital in the cardiac ward, but we were thankful God spared
        him. He also was found to have brights disease and a diabatic, so he has several strikes against him, but now he
        is doing fairly well, only he can never work anymore; which is hard for him I’m sure. They live on Harrell Rd R#8.
        Both are members of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, as well and come when they can. His health is his handicap
        now. When he was little, he had polio and left one arm damaged by it, but it was years before I realized he didn’t
        have the use of one arm. Bill has the personality that one never sees his affliction and he has overcome it. I
        think he should receive praise for his accomplishment. When he was still at home and the younger brothers and
        sisters gathered around him, he could always tell them stories that really drew them to him. He made it so
        interesting for them and fun too. There wasn’t any TV or radio, except for one crystal radio they had, but didn’t
        work all the time. So Bill was the delight to them for entertainment. (Dan’s note: Betty was writing all of this in the
        mid-late 1970's. Bill died in June, 1981)

        a sad time for his parents, his sister’s Edith was age 9, Alice age 6 ( and was to live only 18 more years just a
        short life here on earth) and brother Bill was only 3 at the time of Orville’s passing away. In later years, we had
        our first daughter, Kathy, b on Nov 24, 1950, the day of Orville’s passing away. If he had lived, he would have
        been 35 at that date 1950. How sad it must have been in the household of the Marrs. They had more grief
        ahead for which they stood the test.

       b Sept 29, 1917 just a year after his baby brother Orville passed away. I’m sure he helped fill the aching heart of

       his parents for the loss of their 2 son, Orville. Although we know no child can fill another’s place, but does make
       a place of his own and in this close knit loving family, he was blessed indeed. As he grew to manhood, he had to
       go off to serve our country in WWII and again his parents had to stand another test seeing him go off to war, not
       knowing whether they would see him again , but trusting God would watch over him for them. And indeed, he
       did, for he brought him safely back home when the war ended. (Ralph served in Europe and was involved in the

       b. Feb 11, 1920 in the original log house on the homeplace, as were her brothers and sisters before her. When
       she was small, a tornado came through here and really tore a path of destruction. They had to build another
       house, the present hip roofed one now being lived in by our son Paul and family. Dad thought the hip roof was
       safer against wind, etc. But I believe he found it to be more prone to leaky roof during rainy seasons. Edna was
       always the little housekeeper for her mother; this was a chore she enjoyed so while she was growing up and it
       still is today. She md Oct 19, 1939 Willard Clovis Duncan. He is an Elder in the Church of Christ in Columbus
       and a few years back they were on their way to Hendricksvill, to have a prayer meeting service in the Church of
       Christ there (Liberty), but never reached there that fateful evening. It was raining and in a curve, nearing a bridge
       east of Belmont IN, a young fellow lost control of his car and hit them head on. We, at the time, was on a trip to
       North and South Dakota and what a shock to know the following event. Edna was pinned in her seat by the
       engine that had come back on her; her face was cut so severely that it just missed the jugular vein and nearly
       cost her eye it came so close - her legs were a mangled mess, not much hope given for her life, but her faith and
       the Lord spared this wonderful sister (and sister in law). What strength she had to pull through such an ordeal.
       When we were told finally that she would live, but would never walk, well they just didn’t know our Edna, for walk
       she did .. at the same time, Clovis was hurt, but not badly, so they thought. Well, it turned out when he finally
       collapsed after walking around several days with a ruptured spleen. So his life was held in balance all that time,
       unknown to anyone, even the doctors. So thankful they got to him in time. He now is a diabetic and just recently
       Edna had another test to go through; she had to have open heart surgery. Again, just in time for she had an
       embolism (bubble) ready to burst on the aorta. It was caused by the wreck, the doctors seemed to think and had
       been ballooning ever since. So these two dear people have had their share of tests. He was employed with
       Woody Stogsdill Wholesale in Columbus and still with the new firm, after Woody retired. They live at 1341 Grand

       had proper meal and took his laundry to return clean and fresh from her loving care. She rarely missed a day to
       see him. He was blind the last few years of his life and she got him a walker to use as he insisted on living alone
       on the homeplace and he did real well until the last two years of his life and he got pneumonia and she took him
       home with her. He returned home when well, but was back with her off and on, then came the day she and her
       sister, Edna, took turns to have him in their home. The last time he left his beloved home, he couldn’t see, but he
       took hold of the door knob and said “Good bye old home,” this was a sad parting for him - and for all of us when
       we had to finally give him up. Doris goes now to see Aunt Ice, her mother’s only living sister, that is out at the
       Hospitality House and to see her sister Edith who has the broken hip in the hospital. She, too, is a born again
       child of God, serving her Lord and Savior in her daily life and at the Church where her people had a great part,

        trees in the line which would eventually be set light poles and all. It somehow got out of control and cut his foot
        and leg above the ankle, off, with only a piece of skin holding it on. They rushed him to the hospital and was
        about to remove it, when Dr. Holland, a surgeon, decided to try his utmost to save it and indeed, he did just that

       b. July 29, 1924. He, too, saw service in WWII, a short biography of it for his son David, when he needed it for a
       school project.
       I landed from a troop transport ship off coast of France at the port of Le Havre. We went by rail (box car) to the
       city of Rouen. We assembled and marched to small town or village by the name of Lyon La Farst. During a part
       of time here some of the battery went up into Belgium to bring Army vehicles and deliver them to the front lines.
       Incidentally, on the way up to Brussels, Belgium, I went through Waterloo, where Napoleon was defeated in
       battle. We came south along Luxembourg, through a city called Bar Le Duc, then eastward toward Nancy,
       another city. The front lines of the battle were in this area. We returned to our unit to move up ourselves as a full
       combat armored Division, toward the Saar Basin area. In this area, the Germans had much fortifications. We
       crossed this area and went into Germany, going toward Mainz. We readied ourselves and our equipment, tanks,
       half-tracks, trucks, jeeps, etc to go toward the front lines of battle, which at that time was in eastern France
       around Metz. We also experienced our first buzz bombing while up in the Brussels, by pilotless planes. They
       were radio controlled and carried much high explosives, making them a real flying bomb. The people all along
       the way were most friendly, even though their country was being devastated by war. We delivered our truck, etc,
       at the front battle lines, then on our return, we stopped off two days in Paris, the capitol city of France. It was a
       beautiful city, but unlike any of the rest of France. We returned to our unit and very shortly thereafter, we began
       our movement eastward toward the Saar Basin, as mentioned above. This part of France has much of the
       industry. We crossed over into Germany, after going through cities like Metz and Nancy, also Saar guimenes.
       After going through Germany, my unit also went into Czechoslovakia, our unit went eastward in Europe farther
       than any American unit. Later, after the war was over, I crossed back over France, coming down through cities
       such as Lyon, Valence, Orange and Marsellies. This being on the Mediterranean Sea. After sometime in
       Vienna, Austria for almost one year, I again came back though France coming home. I sailed for home from the
                                                                                 st

        Calvary Baptist Church by choice and born again children of God. Myself, on June 25, 1957, Billy Graham was
        having a televised crusade from Madison Square Garden and God used him to convince me that I needed
        forgiveness of all my sins and on the night of June 25, I gave my life to God. I then joined our church and wasn’t
        long I was a Sunday School teacher and for 3 yrs. was Sunday School Treasurer. Then my health broke and
        since I’ve been laid aside. I still witness for Him and for 10 yrs was Church Treasurer until Dec 31, 1974. Leon
                                 th
        received Him on our 14 wedding anniversary, here in our kitchen - what a blessed anniversary it was, Bro. Buck
        Deckard led him to the Lord. June 20, 1960 and he too joined Mt. Calvary Baptist Church and has since been an
        usher, Deacan, Sunday School teacher, church treasurer for 10 yrs (I did the book work, he did the rest.) S.S.
        Assistant, Announcer, and an Adult Class teacher as well as at time taught at Wednesday eve. prayer service.
        He has served also as a Trustee. He worked for a time when we were first married, at I.U. Library and then 3 yrs
        at RCA, until laid off and then 3yrs at P.O. as Special Delivery Mail, then for 6 yrs owner and operator of
        neighborhood Marrs grocery, then went to work for Westinghouse when they opened their plant here in
        Bloomington, as a machinist and has been there now for 18 years and is a machinists tool grinder. (for a time,
        Leon was Union President IBEW at Westinghouse. We’ve been thru 3 strikes there, one lasting 5 2 months.
        Next year, 1976, is another one to come up, as it is contract time and we are sure pray all goes well with no
        strike. They are hare to live thru, but with God’s help, one can.) I guess you might say our hobby is genealogy
        - searching for our ancestry while we are yet here and finding relatives alive that we never knew about and
        meeting them and enjoying every minute of it. Being a child of God is far more important, but this is something to
        make history have more meaning to us and our children. While we dwell here in this life as we know it now. Also,
        it is a joy when we find our forefathers also lived for the Lord and is now dwelling with Him to one day return for
        their bodies and rec’ a glorified body like our Lord and Savior when he returns for His Church and we are his will
        be caught up together in the rapture. What a day that will be, how glorious, way beyond our imaginations can
        bare. We have been blessed with 4 children and now a dau and son in law and our first grandchild. To this we
        are thankful to God for everything. Forever give Him praise.

        Priscilla and Joe Petty in what was called Pettyville. Mary gave us pictures of Priscilla and the boys and another
        one of their wives. We really appreciated all they did. Mary goes to Florida in the winter months at that time.

        Nicholasville KY. I have his picture which we took while there and in Jessamine Journal, Nicholasville, Thursday
        Jan 14, 1971 is his picture and article of Kentucky silversmiths, Silver topic for Historical Society. Silver Authority
        visits: Henry H Harned, an authority on early Kentucky silver, chats Tuesday after the Jessamine Historical
        Society meeting at Withers-Jessamine County Library with Marlin Marrs, Henry Houston Harned, son of the
        Frankfort guest speaker, collects some of his father’s display material. There is more coin silver B so named
        because it was made from melted Spanish, Mexican and English coins B in the bluegrass region than in any
        other comparable part of the United States, including Boston and Philadelphia. The reson for so much here, he
        said, is the popularity of livestock shows and the use of solid silver cups as awards for the finest animals. Local
        breeders, Harned explained, went to Scotland for sheep, the Guersy Islands for cattle and Arabia for blooded
        horses, just to win the coveted cups. It was customary, he noted, for the winner to pay the cost of the cup after
        the award had been given. To his knowledge, no silversmith ever settled in Nicholasville KY. Then on Thursday,
        Oct 22, 1970, in Jessamine Co Journal is picture of Marlin’s wife, Rita M. Marrs of R#4 Nicholasville KY, displays
                                                                     th
        painting which won first place in acrylics division of the 6 District meeting of the Kentucky Federation of
        Women’s clubs, held Oct 13, at the Hospitality Motor Inn in Lexington. The club featured competition in the art
        divisions of collage, oil, water color, and acrylics as well as competition in needle work and floral arrangement.
        The blue ribbon makes Mrs Marrs eligible to compete in the state contest of the Kentucky Federation of

         He was first clerk. He must have been well educated, as he uses good English and good handwriting. Mr.

       receive your letter. I’m sorry we don’t have more information for you. My father was raised by an Aunt, Mrs.
       Pearl McWhorter, of Lubbock TX. His mother died during his birth. Evidently, he didn’t know too much about his
       family background. We have heard him mention an Uncle, Rowan Marrs, but he was last heard from in 1916,
       living in England. Thank you again for your interest and we hope to hear from you again. Sincerely, Dave and
       Pat. Letter on Oct 21, 1971 saying their whole family is just fascinated by their past. They sent us their family

       Letters from them in 1965, 1968, 1966. His father d Mar 1966 and he said Awe cannot tell you in words how
       much we appreciated your sympathy cards and prayers during Neal’s father’s illness and death last March
       (1966). Needless to say his absence has had an appreciable affect on all our lives and it is hard to realize that he
       is no longer with us. Despite all of the events of the past year, our hearts are still full of joy with the assurance
       and hope and renewal that comes from the meaningfulness of the Christmas season. In the spirit of Christmas,
       Neal and Joan wrote in 1968 - Dear friendes - Joan continues her first grade teaching duties - 1969 Neal was
       promoted to an Associate Professor of Economics, and Neal’s sister Margaret lives in Salina KS. Neal’s mother
       remains in good health. 1970 - Neal’s life is dominated by the routine of the Wesleyan Campus. When school is
       underway, he can hardly think of anything else. This is the sixth year at Wesleyan, so finds his duties include
       many assignments other than just class room teaching. With the retrenchment program, he has been spared, for
       which we are grateful. But we are concerned about the future, as private colleges beginning to hurt financially.

       July 19, 1971 letter: Dear Mr and Mrs Marrs, your letter was forwarded to me and received it today. I am up here
       running our business until Nov and will return to Texas then. I am sending your letter, with your line of Marrs, to
       our historian, my Aunt Mabel Marrs of Fowler KS. She is the best I’ve ever seen at this kind of thing, and I’m sure
       that she will be thrilled to have this information and I can guarantee that you will be hearing from her in the near
       future. My father is the originator of the Marrs Early Orange some time back, and I came home, improved the
       line of orange and put it on the market. It is now the top, most profitable, type of orange being planted and
       produced in the Magic Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Both my mother and father are spending their summer in
       their cabin on their 16 acres in the national forest in NM. We will pick them up on our return to Texas about the
       middle of Nov and take them to their home in TX for six months for the winter. I am sending you, under separate
       cover, a magazine that has the history of the Marrs Early Orange and my Daddy’s picture on the cover when he
       was presented the highest Citrus Award in the Valley, for his contribution to the citrus world. Thank you again
       for the information. Sincerely Gwynevere Marrs, Safari Lodge, R#1, Bayfield CO 78538.

       writing sooner, but I am not much of a letter writer. We received both of your letters and thank you for the
       biography of William Marrs. I sent copies to my father, brothers and sisters. I can not contribute to the accuracy
       of the family trees as I have been the recipient of the information from other relatives. I ever receive any info, I
                                                  th
       will be sure to send a copy to you. Your 6 cousin, Jake, Bonnie and Douglas. (Our Kathy met him at Torp Aero
       coming in on a private flight where she works. She noticed the name being Marrs and that got the conversation
       started on Marrs.)

       b 1938 Letter Mar 20, 1974 Gamaliel KY: Dear Betty, My Aunt, Mary Lane, has given me your letter relating to
       the Marrs family history. I became quite interested in the history of my family about 4 years ago and have done
       some work on different branches of the family. I am delighted to know someone else is working on the Marrs
       family. I am Judy Ann Jackson Downing. My parents are Glen and Jessie Pearl Comer Jackson and I have
       three children - Lisa Ann, 14, Lori Lynn 12, and Jack Reed, 5. I teach school, am divorced, and enjoy working on
       the family history. Could you please send me the address where I could obtain a copy of the Marrs and Allied
       Families? Grandmother Comer (Maud Marrs Comer) knew so much about her close relatives and seemed very
       happy that I was interested in them. I’m sorry I didn’t get interested sooner, as I’m sure there are things I’ll think
       of I could have asked her and she would have known exactly the connection, etc. She was really a beautiful
       person. Sincerely, Judy J. Downing
       Apr 1, 1974: Does your library have AA fork in the Road@ by E. Clayton Gooden? It is about the early settlers of
       Monroe county and mentions Samuel and Abijah Marrs. A very interesting and entertaining book. You Betty is
       about 8 mon older than my Lisa. I had better close and get busy on some of these classes I’m supposed to be
       teaching. Sincerely, Judy PO Box 56 Gamaliel KY

There will indeed be much room to blame the defective performance of the author, but this she will bear with the greatest
of pleasure if the person dissatisfied will, for the benefit of the Marrs family, either produce a more perfect work or
contribute to the merits of this Marrs book. I have done my best in preparing this Marrs book. May those who have gone
on to their reward know that they have not been forgotten and through this Marrs book, their memory lingers on.
Especially thrilling to my heart is to find those who have lived for the Lord during ones short life time here on earth,
preparing the way for eternal security, with our Lord and Savior.

Everyone likes to know something about his forefathers, and to be able to tell his children the tales about their ancestors,
which he, himself, has heard from his parents. They left their native hills and glens for the new land of promise -
America. During the period of religious persecution, they fled their native land, Scotland. “My plaid is on my shoulder
and the boat is on the shore, and its all bye wi’ auld days and you; Here’s a health and here’s a heartbreak, for its home,
my dear no more. To the green glens, the fine glens, we knew.” Unknown

The voyage across the sea was without any doubt attended by perils and inconveniences, not now understood by
anyone of us in this generation of 1975. Vessels the came on were small, overcrowded, ill ventilated, slow of speed, ill
fitted to withstand the force of the elements they were to encounter. Their deeds in behalf of American Independence
should ever be cherished in patriotic remembrance, and for religious freedom to serve our Lord and Savior. May we
never know religious persecutions (as our forefathers had to bare in Scotland) in our own beloved country, the United
States of America, for as we know, it could happen, so we pray for our leaders and all the people to turn back to God
before it is too late. I’m sure if our forefathers could speak today in 1975, they’d realize the dangers our country is
condoning in moral breakdowns, etc.

        Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye Children for
        for blessed are they that keep my ways;
        For Whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain
        favor of the Lord.
                                 Proverbs 8:32, 35

        The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness
        and let us put on the armor of light.
                                  Romans 13:12


                God’s Book - The Bible

        How precious is the Book Divine,
        by inspiration given;
        Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine
        To guide our souls to heaven
