My father was Wiley, the sixth child of Prettyman Marvel. Born Green County, Georgia, April 4, 180G, being two years old when parents settled in Gibson Co., Indiana. He was married to Charity Clark, March 30, 1826.

The Clarks were of very early pioneer stock. They were French Huguenots.

Protestants driven from France by the Catholics about the year 1615. They came to America and settled in South Carolina. In 1808 they emigrated to Indiana and settled in Gibson County.

The country through which they traveled was a wilderness and they were beset with many dangers from Indians and wild beasts. The children were carried all the way between beds lashed on a pack horse, while the Older ones walked and drove their cow. They had live on such food as they could obtain from the forest.

Scarcely had they become settled, a small patch cleared and a cabin built, when Grandfather Clark took sick with a fever and died. The two older boys, one of whom took sick with a fever and was down a long time and the other one killed by a falling tree, left Grandmother Clark alone with the smaller children to fight the battle of life.

During one of the Indian Raids, just before the battle of Tippecanoe, while she was weaving a piece of cloth to make clothing for the children, a neighbor rushed in and said, "Indians are coming!" Grandma said she did not want the.red'skins to get her cloth and to cut it would ruin it, so she declared she would stay and finish it. The neighbor said if she would stay, she was going to remain there also. So they took turns at the loom and watching for the Indians until the cloth was finished.

She however sent her children to the nearest stockade. One of those children was Charity (Clark) Marvel, born January 23, 1807.

After the marriage of Wiley Marvel and. Charity Clark, they lived in Indiana where their children were all born. Three children died in early childhood and, seven attained to man and womanhood. These seven were: James K. (born March 29, 1827); Mary (February 9, 1828); Prettyman (December 27, 1835); Joseph W. (July 30, 1838); John Wesley (February 21, 1841); George W.(November 20, 1844); Braxton (October 1, 1847).

In 1852, Wiley and Charity (Clark) Marvel moved to Dewitt Co., Ill., with their family accompaning them. Living in Illinois at that time were John and Comfort (Marvel) Barr and Prettyman and Rebecca (Barr) Marvel with their families. They were among the very early pioneers of that country. Uncle Prettyman, son of Prettyman Marvel, Sr., having died several years before our arrival there.

My grandfather, Prettyman Marvel, now near ninety years of age, after the death of Grandmother, who was also near ninety, moved to Benton County, Illinois, to live with his youngest son, George Rogers Marvel. He was very desirous to see his children, Wiley and Comfort (Marvel) Barr, so they rigged up a large family carriage that Father had brought from Indiana the spring of1852, and in the early fall of 1855 my Father and Uncle John Barr started on their journey toward the southern part of Illinois to bring "Grandpap" to our home.

You can hardly imagine the joyful and expectant feeling that we children had for three or four days. One of us would keep a constant lookout for miles and miles across the broad and level plain toward where the city of I,incoln now stands.

One day one of us shouted, "Oh, I see something coming this way!" And it wasn't long until we all began to clap our hands and shout, "Oh! It's them! It's them!" We could hardly wait until they got; close enough so we could run and meet them. Our first question was, "Where is Grandpap?" 'I want to see Grandpap." The team stopped and Grandpap raised up from his bed with joy and gladness beaming over his tired old face, realizing that the long journey was over. Most of his talk was about southern Illinois, where he had been making his home for some time, and their trip on the road.

At that time, like most every one else, we had but very little house room, and according to arrangements Grandpap was to with us over the winter. We had but two rooms; on, big room, with a "lean-to" for a kitchen, having a bed in one end. We had two beds in the big room with trundle beds under each of them. Mother told some of the larger boys they would have to sleep in the bed in the kitchen because Grandpap would have to sleep in the bed where it could be kept warm. Mother arranged the bed for him and said, "You may go to bed anytime you Wish." But he had the trundle beds underneath the other beds and said, "Charity won't you let George sleep with me? He will keep me warm." So it was arranged that way.

Nothing would have pleased me better. From that time on he looked to me for every little favor, such as getting his clothes ready for him, his cap, "specks", Walking stick, drink of water and so on.

Grandpap and I continued sleeping together the trundle bed for about eight months, so you see I was with him most of the time. It seemed to be a great pleasure for him to talk of his "Early Boyhood days". Especially of the trials, incidents, and hardships they had to endure during the long seven year of the Revolutionary War. He was hardly in his teens and the only one the family could look for protection and help against hungry Indian raids, Tories and many other dangers connected with war times.

One thing he told me several different times was that during the long war, mad dogs became numerous. Wolves were also going mad. As every family had dogs, things became alarming. He said they had one very large family watch dog that was always on the lookout for any approaching danger. They could tell by his manner and barking, when they saw him coming, the kind of danger approaching. He would stand guard against everything else but a mad dog. Grandpap said, it seemed that he could smell them long before they came into sight, and the alarm he gave the for them to shut the stock up and get to safety.

He told of seeing Gen. Washingoton and his men marching past, and of the privations and suffering of the Continental Army. I think he talked mostly on subjects he thought most boys of my size. He was a great lover of fish. He said he liked anything that had fish taste or smell, such as turtles, eels or oysters.

I remember one evening we boys caught a very large snapping turtle. We brought it to the house. I ran in and said, "Oh, Grandpap, come see our turtle." He said, "Why they are good to eat, good as any fish." He told me how to dress it, but it did not look good to me. I ran into the house to ask mother about it. She said she would not cook it. I Said, "But Mother, Grandpap says its good as fish, and he likes fish so well." "Well, we'll try to get him some fish," said mother. So next morning they started me off on the "fish hunt." They told me to go to Schrader Marvel's. I we there and was successful in getting' fish. Grandfather stayed with us until the next May. He was then taken to John and Comfort (Marvel) Barr's, about two miles south of Waynesville, Ill. There he died the following October 1, 1855, at age 93 years. He was a life long Methodist. His home was always open to the ministers for religious worship. From all I know, all the impressions I have of his life, he was a true patriot and a firm believer in the Constitutional form of Government.

I believe that all his descendants, will say that by, and through him, we have a freedom loving principle implanted in us, that we will not for one moment surrender our sacred and God given rights to any King or potentate. Not even to Rome, Rum and Ruin. If we cannot all be Klans, let us all, who are in any way connected with the good and grand old name, "Marvel" be truly clannism and ever perpetuate and keep alive the association and annual reunion of the "Marvel Family." We hope that some time in the near future, that the Oregon branch of the ancestral tree will have a reunion. It is growing very rapidly. It's fruit is A No. I.

Hoping that the next reunion will be one of the best yet and that you will all have a small place in your hearts for us, out here in Oregon, will close with best of wishes to you all.

We remain, lovingly yours, George. W. and Nancy J. Marvel.

James and Freelove moved in the dead of winter, 1851, in a covered wagon, and came near to freezing on the trip. However, they braved the snow and ice and the bitter cold and reached the village of Waynesville, near which place Mr. Marvel had entered his first piece of land the preceding November. The country was sparsely settled and they endured many hardships where they had built and established their home. They were both active members of the Methodist Episcopal Church and brought up their children in the same faith.

Oh what are all my sufferings here,
If Lord thou count me meet
With that enraptured host to appear
And worship at thy feet.
Give joy or grief, give ease or pain
Take life or friends away,
But let me find them all again
In that eternal day.
