I am seeking information on Marvin Earl MARRAH who was born in Missouri 14 Mar 1908 and who died in Sutter, Sutter Co., CA 10 Aug 1990. According to the California Death Index, his mother's maiden name was MANIS. His is buried in the Sutter Cemetery beside his wife Bessie B. MARRAH, whose maiden name was Choate. She was born in Kansas 1 Nov 1898 according to the CADI, or 1896 according to the SSDI, and died 16 May 1977 in Sacramento while living in Sutter. When and where were they married? Was Bessie previously married to Roy DOWNING? If so, when and where were they married. Did that marriage end in Roy's death or in divorce? Was Arthur Foster DOWNING who died 1 Jan 1984 while living in Olivehurst, Yuba Co., CA his stepson or adopted son? Arthur was born 11 (CADI) or 12 (SSDI) Nov 1917 in Kansas of a mother whose maiden name was Choate.
