Inscription.  In 1899 James H. Holt sold Emanual "Man" Marshall a one-acre lot at the northeastern end of the Glencoe property. "Man" Marshall was the superintendent at Glencoe Mills for nearly forty years. He and wife Mary Eliza Murray Marshall lived with their fourteen children at the home place for over eighty years. Many of the children worked in the mill and lived in Glencoe as adults. Marshall family reunions are held yearly in Glencoe.

Additional comments.
1. The Marshall Family
The baby Mary Eliza Marshall is holding is my Mother, Rosa Adabelle Marshall Sandlin. This was a wonderful family and I have a complete genealogy starting from this photo. My Mother loved her family and told many family stories of life in Glencoe.

Editor's Note: Thank you for sharing this information about the family on the marker.
