In 1909, the following article showed up in the local newspaper, The Fowlerville Review:www.familysearch.org and found that in 1909, Marshall Fowler would have been 69 years old. In the 1900 census, it showed him married to Lucinda, who was two years younger than him, and at that point they had been married 39 years. They had two boys -- Marshall (Jr) and Roy, who were 29 and 23 years respectively in 1900.
From the census information, Marshall was a farmer with his son Roy helping out as a laborer. Marshall Jr was shown as a "horse trader."
If anyone has more to add, that would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone know where the farm might have been?
