Missionaries. Marcus and his wife Narcissa left his medical practice in the East to go West as missionaries under the auspices of the Presbyterian and Congregational boards. They were among the earliest white people to move into the northwest, founding a mission to Native Americans near what is now Walla Walla, Washington. Some hostile locals attacked the mission on November 29, 1847, killing both Marcus and Narcissa and some others.
