1909 Marshall Fowler, Sr.

In 1909, the following article showed up in the local newspaper, The Fowlerville Review:
With Mary and Ralph Fowler have so many children, I figure this must be one of their descendants.  I did a quick search on 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?

Marshall Fowler was born circa 1828 or 1829 in New York, the son of Ephraim Fowler and Fanny Rice.

I do not know of any relationship between Ephraim and Ralph. It's possible they were distant cousins, but Ralph had no cousins named Ephraim or Marshall.
