Marvel Elijah Anderson was born on a farm near Pierce City, MO. Marvel's Father's name was Franklin Anderson and his Mother's maiden last name was Foster.

After Marvel's Mother's death from Typhoid fever, Marvel worked on the family farm until his Father remarried. Marvel's stepmother had several children from a previous marriage. Marvel took Julia to his older sister, Anna's home, and Marvel started West working as a miner and prospector in Silverton, Leadville, and Cripple Creek, CO. Marvel ended up in Telluride, CO where he worked prospecting, placering, and working in Telluride, Sawpit, and Placerville. Marvel met Mary Olive Imes in Sawpit and they were married in Delta, CO in 1903. Marvel Elijah and Mary Olive had eight children. The family moved to Mesa, AZ in 1915.
