Marksbury-Kentucky & Fiscus-Ohio Updated December 7, 2001
About Our Family Research
My research has been going on for years. I am still looking for information on the Marksburys and Fiscus'. I have over 1500 names in my files at this time, but still have many to add. I am willing to share information with anyone interested. The family of Marksbury is large. Many of them came to Missouri during the early 1800's and later around the time the Civil War was starting. Several parts of the family seemed to have drifted into Oklahoma. Tying these families together has been difficult. With the Marksburys there are so many Samuels, Williams, Linn/Lynns, Johns and Sophias it has caused many queries to know who was tied to whom. I have included a genealogy report for this side of the family.
I am still gathering information on the Fiscus side of the family. They originally started in Germany, I believe and after coming to the States moved further South and West. Again there are many connected to this family that tying them together is worse than working a jigsaw puzzle. Much fun, but mind boggling at times. When I bring more names into my records I will publish a genealogy for this side of the family.
If anyone has information I would be willing to keep in contact with you. I have been lax at times in the past, but have now retired so I don't have a job taking up so much of my time. I will be able to keep up with inquiries as they come in.
