Photos of Descendents of Prettyman Marvel

I was sent a couple of notebooks containing various photos that were collected by Mrs. Muriel Smith a couple of years ago. I have now digitized them to share with you and the ancestors of Prettyman Marvel. Prettyman’s family migrated to Southern Indiana and Illinois. Since 1900, Prettyman Marvel’s family has spread across to other western states as well as Indiana and Illinois.
