As we research our families we need to have more than just the bare bones of dates and places. It takes stories and history to flesh out those bare bones to be able to see the people. To give us an understanding of how they lived and the times they lived in. Along the way we gain a better understanding of ourselves by learing who we come from.

This Page is devoted to stories about Marion County. If you have a story you wish to share please set it up in your word processing program and send it to me to be as an attachment.
