Enoch and Emma Marsh - Obituaries

Amanuensis: A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.

Amanuensis Monday, hosted by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.

I have been working on a rather large project - details later in the week - but I did want to get something from my files transcribed this week. These two obituaries are the last items awaiting transcription in my Marsh file. It feels good to have one file I can say is done!

Enoch O Marsh was the son of Samuel and Milantha Hall Marsh. Emma Burnette was his wife. Both items were found at Old Fulton Post Cards.
