Henry H. Marvin

HENRY H. MARVIN, dealer in hardware, Oregon; born June 11, 1850, in Warren, Trumbull Co., Ohio (see sketch of A. B. Marvin); H.H. Marvin received his schooling in Oregon; learned his trade of a tinner in Beloit, Wis., at 18, left Beloit at 21, and opened a stock of hardware in the old building of C.W. Netherwood; fortunately, removed six weeks before it was burned.  During the past six years, he has done business in the old building built by W.S. Bedford, as a residence, having thoroughly remodeled it; Mr. M. is the only hardware man in the place, and carries a very complete line of hardware, stoves and tinware, employing two tinners, and keeps two peddling wagons constantly on the road; his trade is large and increasing, and he does business in a way that merits the good-will and patronage of all.

He married Lucinda Bryan, who was born Sept. 26, 1851, in Onondaga Co., N.Y., she died April 2, 1873, leaving a son, Louis B. The present Mrs. Marvin was Miss Rosa A. Bryan, born Sept. 26, 1849, in Onondaga Co., N.Y.; they have three children-Nellie A. Arba B. and Herbert H. Mr. M. is a Mason and a Republican.
