Daisy Marguerite Hembree daughter of Arthur Hembree and Johnnie Moneta Rogers married 15 May 1926 in Anadarko, Caddo Co., Oklahoma, USA, to Ray Ellis Main son of John Edward Main and Ada Sylvia Imus. Daisy and Ray had three children: Ronald Elwood Main, Elvan Dale Main, and Evelyn June Main.
Marguerite lived with her grandparents, George Washington and Margaret Belle Rogers till she was eight and stayed summer vacations until she was fourteen. (She wrote a little about her younger life and I will use it as a reference for this biography.) Marguerite says her Grandma was quite stern and punished her often, sometimes she felt without a good reason - but still she never douted her Grandparents love. In fact Marguerite thinks feeling so sure of her Grandparents love has given her self respect and assurance all of her life. Marguerite said Grandpa Rogers was her special and favorite grown up person. She said he never spanked her, yet she wouldn't have thought of being sassy or disobedient to him. He told her stories of his school days, and helped her study from his own children's old school books when ever she missed school, and she missed a lot in severe winter weather. In those days you were not graded according to the days you attended school - but on what you knew. So, Marguerite has always been grateful to her Grandpa and Grandma Rogers for their teaching her. Marguerite had a blackboard and a slate, spelling lessons from her Uncle Gene's eight grade speller, reading from a fifth grade McGuffey's reader, and problems from an advanced arithmatic, probably about a sixth grade one.
