Birth: Nov. 23, 1901
Marshall County
South Dakota, USA
Death: May 6, 1969

Andrew was the son of Louis Solomon and Margaret Adney Marlow of rural Veblen, SD
Luellen was the daughter of Charles Franklin & Marian Iris Olds Oliver. She was born at Onegnia , Green County, New York. She was listed as their tenth child on her birth certificate. It is assumed that as a child Luellen moved to California with her parents. On September 28, 1928, She and Andrew were married at Oakland, California. In 1932 Andrew & Luellen decided to move back to the area where Andrew was born. They rented a farm near Brampton, North Dakota. It was here the rest their children were born. On July 4th of 1942, Luellen was out in the yard cleaning the springs of one of the beds in the house. Some how the flammable liquid she was using ignited. Fanned by the wind, her clothes quickly caught fire. In panic, she started running to get away from the flames.
Her two oldest children, running after her, pushed her to the ground in order to smother the flames. Rushed to the hospital, it was discovered that she had suffered 3rd degree burns on her chest and both her arms. After lingering for 5 1/2 months, Luellen died in the Britton Hospital from blood poisoning.
Soon after her death, Andrew placed the six younger children in an orphanage for them to be adopted. He then left the Brampton area and was not heard from again for about 17 years. During which time he had remarried and moved to Egeland, ND.
