Edward M Marschall

Photographer: E. M. Marschall
Honey Grove, Texas

Edward M. Marschall
(9 Dec 1850 - 9 Jan 1897)

E. M. Marschall was born in Barnwell, SC. He was orphaned by the time he was 8 years old. The 1870 US Census finds him working as a clerk in a relative’s store still in South Carolina.

A 1878 tax roll shows him in Honey Grove, TX. The first and only mention of photography is the 1880 US Census.

He apparently partnered with a Brekeen in a pharmacy or general store as there are several mentions of the operation in the Honey Grove Signal, the town newspaper.

He is mentioned again in the 1895 Honey Grove tax roll and then he dies in 1897 at the age of 46.

He apparently practiced photography as a sideline as there doesn’t seem to be any mention of it other than the 1880 US Census. The cabinet card here was probably done near that year.

Not the one you were looking for? Here's the photographer's INDEX by name. Listed here are all the Cabinet Card photographers of the 19th century found in LOST GALLERY. This is a work in progress. For a look at the original postings go to LOST GALLERY.
