       (Page 122)The Census of 1840 contains only the names of heads of households. There are many names of men whose descendants are still living in Marion county and it is regretable that these families, because of lack of time and information, cannot be included in this report. Perhaps, some time in the future a book dealing with the pioneer families of Marion County will be published. Let us hope so.
       It is the sincere desire of all who have helped in compiling this report that you will enjoy every page, even though some histories, because of lack of space, have been reduced in length.
       The assistance of all who have contributed to this chapter on pioneer families is deeply appreciated. We realize that there are many pioneer families that are not covered in this history, not because these families are not important or worthy of mention, but due to the fact that no history or record of the family was furnished the compiler, and because lack of time and available records made further research impossible. Every family history submitted, though some have been reduced in length, is included herein.

       *Editor's Note: All of us owe a deep debt of gratitude to "Miss Effie", the compiler, for her untiring efforts to make the Family Histories of Marion County Pioneers a source of information and interest to all of us.

(pages 123-128 list the heads of households abstracted from the 1840 & 1850 Federal Census. These are not reproduced here since the same information is found in the Census Records elsewhere on the Marion County site - Linda)

Please Note: The family genealogies found on pages 129-285 are not included in this transcription. These sketches have been updated and, in some instances, corrected in the Marion Co Genealogy Society's book "Marion Co Families: 1811-1900". If you would like to have a copy of one of these sketches please contact someone on the Look-Up page. Linda
