Surnames: Marler/Barber
My great grandmother was Narcissus Barber Marler married to Emmanuel Marler of Johnston County NC. I'd love to know any more information about Emmanel's trek to the south after the Civil War, his background in New England, and Cissy's heritage. I understand she has Choctow roots. My cousin told me has found an ancient picture of our early Native American ancestor. Do you have any information about this? Helen Marler, a granddaughter of Emmanuel Marler's has been researching this heritage I understand.

The mysteries and the challenges of genealogy are what makes it enjoyable - EW Marler is a one of those mysteries of genealogy. On a regular basis I receive email telling me of the "new discoveries" which are actually legends retold. EW claimed to be from Connecticut, France, England -- there is no record of any Marlers in Connecticut at that time. I can find no proof of him being in New England. Even though it does upset a family legend, he was not an officer in the Union Army -- he was a civilan employee for Sherman's Construction Gang. I have heard his name as Emannuel and Eli -- one of his sons is Emmanuel Warren and he is recorded as Eli in a census but in all of the documents that he personally signed he only used the intials EW.
There is a division in the family over the spelling of the surname some use Mahler some use Marler. EW used Marler in his documents but I think either way is correct and do not see any reason for contention. I too am descened from EW through his son Sam P. Who was named Preston Primrose (a surname in NC in that time period - which may be a friend or a relative) as an infant but changed his name to Samuel Preston as an adult.
I am more that willing to share my research and the research I have on file done by others with anyone interested in this brick wall. Helen R. Marler

Thank you, Helen, for your reply. I do look forward to a trip to the South from Minnesota, hopefully in the not too distant future. I would love to see some of your research. You mentioned that you have some materials on disk which you would be willing to share. As of this week, John Ransom's only living child, Josephine Mahler Kutzer (my mother) has become very ill at 92 years old. We have been working with doctors and hope this will be just an illness. She is very strong in will and seems to defy all odds despite having influenza A and pneumonia which may or may not take her life; we take one part of a day at a time.

Your first duty is to take care of your mother ~ my father, Howard Marler passed away a year ago after a long fight with cancer. As the only child, I need to take care of mother she too has suddenly needed to see specialists. Please keep me posted as to your progress. The EW research is not for my exclusive use it is necessary that everyone who is researching this line receive what has been done so we can break through to the correct information. I have noticed that all the Marlers come to brick walls 4-5 generations back and that there is a pattern of the same name male names in the families. I think we will one day find that these Marler/Mahler families will discover a common bond. I will try to apply myself to review the research to see if it is all now on CD so anyone needing the research can review what has been done. I have documentation from other professionals over many years the stack of paper is about oh 12" high. With all my best Helen

I have stumbled upon this site while doing another search but have found it quite interesting. I moved to Johnston County in 2001 but have Marler family roots scattered throughout Tennessee and Florida. My father told me that we have Cherokee ties in our family. Is it possible that I could have distant family in this area and be unaware of it ?

Surnames: Marler, Marlow, Ward
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.

Surnames: Marler/Hughes
After searching I found that my Great Grandfather was Nicodemus Marler and married to Lizzie. My Grandfather was Nathanial Marler (He was from NC) and Grandmother was Callie (Caroline) Hughes Marler. We have Cherokee ties in our family. They lived in Rhea County Tenn. I'm still working to find many relatives on my Dad's side. His name is John Henry Marler born in 1905 and died in 1983.
Any help in finding more relatives would be greatly appreciated.
