Besides these he leaves to mourn his departure his aged mother four sisters;  Mrs. Millie Twist, Mrs. Lucy Newman, Mrs. Augusta Jones and Mrs. Emma alexander, all of Arnold.
Quinn Marrs was a kind husband and an affectionate father who will be sadly missed by members of the home and the disposition of the mans was such that he is mourned as well by a large circle of friends. Friday morning before his death he called the writer, and after council, reading of scriptures, and prayer he gave himself wholly into the keeping
