Thanks to someone else I know have the info on Persis, so here's the scoop. Persis Ann Marble was born Feb. 1, 1825 in Poland, Maine daughter of Oliver Marble and Rebecca ____.? She also had siblings, William D. Marble, Sarah E., Rebecca D., Hannah Davis Marble (perhaps the mother's maiden name), and George P. Marble.
Oliver Marble died FEb. 17, 1871 in Poland, ME at 70 years old.His wife Rebecca died Aug. 12, 1871 at age 73 years old.They are both buried at the Highland Cemetery in Poland.
Also buried here is Daniel MOODY and Persis A. (Marble's) son Augustus B. MOODY who was born July 6, 1851 and died Feb. 26, 1921.*(note*- Augustus may have actually been born in 1850...in the 1850 Minot, Cumberland Co., ME census there is a young infant son labled "child not yet named" and IF this son lived, it was Augustus. I don't think folks kept up too well with when they were born back then. *********************** Just as an additional note of interest here...Freeland MARBLE was the Town Clerk of Poland during this time and recorded many of the Marble families births etc.I'm sure they were all related to one another.
