Marr Family Memoir : C. 1860-1970
In 1970 James C. Marr, Jr., wrote a memoir about his family including his parents, James and Sarah Marr, Sr., and siblings - May, Helen, Edith, and Will - at the request of his niece, Jeanette Marr. Many of the stories take place at Edgewood, their farm located midway between Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and Washington, D. C., or at their in-town home in Washington, D. C. The text focuses on the years from the early 1860s until 1907, when James Jr. left home as a young man. James Sr.'s Civil War experiences and three-year western adventures are covered. In addition, the book includes James Jr.'s many and varied life experiences as an agricultural engineer. Over seventy period photographs and drawings illustrate the text, more than thirty of them by James P. Gaddis, husband of Edith Marr Gaddis. Thirty-one facsimiles of photo album pages prepared by Mary Gaddis Ford are included.
