  • Notes 
    • An undated newspaper clipping furnished by Janice (Mrs. Leland)
      Marshall, sheds some light on the deaths of the two Marshall children:

      " Marshall Babies Killed In Crash
      " Other Members of Clair Marshall Family
      " Seriously Injured in Head-on Collision

      "Warren, Pa., July 7. - Two babies were killed and eight persons injured Monday in a head-on collision of two automobiles on Route 77 near Garland, about 20 miles west of here.

      "The dead were Eugene Marshall, 18 months old, and David Marshall, 5 months old, children of Mr. and Mrs. Clair Marshall, who were moving from Blooming Valley to their new home at Wellsboro.

      "The injured were Mr. and Mrs. Marshall, who were critically hurt; two other children of their, Gussie, 11, and Gracie, 8; Elva Bemis, 51; George Geer, 64; Levi Warner, and Clayton Buchanan, all of Barnes. Three escaped injury.

      "State Motor Policeman K. W. Leeper said Warner's car went out of control when he swerved onto the soft berm to let another machine pass. It then careened into the Marshall car, wrecking both."
