Laura Eva Marshall

Laura Eva Marshall (1874-1897) was the daughter of William Kelker Marshall (1829-1911) and Anna Mary Rumbarger (1838-1924). She was born in Rathmel, Jefferson County PA and died in Reynoldsville at her family's home on East Main Street, at Cool Spring Hollow. She was one of twelve children--one of the six daughters. Laura was active in the Epworth League of the Reynoldsville Methodist Episcopal Church. She died of "catarrh of the stomach and inflammatory rheumatism" at age 22, and lies buried near her parents in an unmarked grave in the Reynoldsville Cemetery. She was remembered fondly by her niece and namesake, Laura Heffner Wilson.
