S. F. MARQUIS, So far as we are able to learn, Dr. Marquis was the first physician who located in the town of New Cumberland. He studied medicine in Cross Creek village, Penn. The exact date of his coming to Hancock county, we have not succeeded in ascertaining. He was quite successful as a practitioner. Notwithstanding this, he abandoned the field in 1852, joining the great exodus to California, where he died a few years later. He was succeded in practice in this county by Dr. David Baguley.
