Maben Anderson Marlowe Family

Maben Anderson Marlowe was born 20 Jun 1825, somewhere in Kentucky according to all records found so far, and died on 1 May 1886, probably in Salem, Illinois. On 21 November 1841, in Sumner County, Tennessee, he married Artemissia Annetta Long at the home of Celia Long. The marriage is recorded in Robertson county, Tennessee.

Maben, a Cumberland Presbyterian minister, was the son of Stephen Marlow [died before 7 Aug 1901] and his wife Alvah Reynolds. Alvah, also called Ala or Aly, was born 3 Jul 1803 in North Carolina and died 7 August 1901 in Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado.

Parents of Stephen, Alvah and Artemissia have not been determined.

Known issue of Stephen and Alvah include:

Malachi, b 1824
Maben, b 1825
Mitchel, b 1832
Sarah, b 1833
William D, b 1839
Henry C, b 1841
Records indicate all children born in Tennessee, except Maben, born in Kentucky.

Pulpit bible of Rev. Maben Anderson Marlowe -- The bible was very fragile and I was unable to zerox it. In looking at my records today, I notice an error in the dates listed in the bible for the marriage of Maben and Artemissia, showing it as 1877 when first mentined and 1841 later. The first date is the one in error.
