I am descended from Jane Marler (1822-1880) who was from eastern TN or NC. Her father was George W. Marler and her mother MAY have been named Sely Ward. Jane married David F. Ward in McMinn County, TN in 1839 and later lived in Rhea County, TN until moving to Florida c1862. There are several Marler/Marlow's in the area including a Nicholas or Nicodemus Marler and an Allen Marler who may be related. Would love to communicate with anyone interested or having information on this family.
