John Sidney Marshall, Jr., The Stone Wall Came Down

Copyright 2017, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Earlier this evening a stone wall (which means, it was a short smaller wall, but not one of those large genie walls) came tumbling down.

Thanks to a death certificate for a baby who died in 1931 I finally found some verification for the date of the death of her daddy, and then, her mom.  And, their burial spot.  With a photo of their headstone.

And, this, a photo of daddy in 1922:

OH, and his signature too!

He is my half-cousin, two times removed.

OK, that's cool.

I'm happy to meet you J.S.

His father was Dr. John Sidney Marshall, his mother was Lucy Alma Darden Marshall.

He was born in 1902 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia and died in 1972 in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.  He and his wife, Doris Carpenter Marshall and his daughter, Jean Hamilton Marshall are all buried (or at least their fully inscribed headstone is at) Abington Hills Cemetery, Scranton, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.
