Chas. Marks was born in Somersetshire, England, Feb. 14, 1871, and settled first on a farm in Albany, N.Y.
He was married to Miss Mary Elizabeth Warren of Albany, N.Y., Oct. 19, 1876, and two years later with a brother they came to Minnesota and settled on a farm in Saratoga in partnership.
In 1898 the brothers dissolved the partnership and Charles remaind on this same farm until death, but had turned the management over to his only son Charles fifteen years ago, who has lived with his father all through life.
Mr. Marks has been a prosperous farmer. He was also an old settler and always looked forward to the Old Settlers' reunion which he enjoyed so much.
Charles Marks passed quietly away at 10:45 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, 1926, a the age of 74 years, 7 months, 29 days.
He had suffered a stroke about two and one half years ago and has been in failing health ever since.
He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, one son Charles Ephriam at home and three daughters, Lucy Elizabeth Stevens of Dover, Mary Jane Lovell and Olive Gertrude at home, one sister in England and fourteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn his loss.
"Grandpa" will be sadly missed by his three little grandchildren who also lived at the home and was always ready to wait on him.
Services were held a the home Tuesday at 2 p.m. and were conducted by Rev Carlin. Interment was made in the Worth cemetery. Six grandsons were pallbearers and six granddaughters carried flowers.

I, unfortunately, know nothing about the deaths or burials of the children Charles and Mary.
