Most of this information was derived from family and cemetery records. If this is your Andrew J., he would be easy to prove through Military, Masonic and Church records.

Note: I have recently volunteered to publish "Visit Our Family Tree" online. I am in the process of extracting its 400 plus pages of info into a workable database. I plan for the website to be a searchable database and repository for all of us interested in the Marett line & its related branches. I hope to have the website up and running sometime early 2007. Please let me know if you would like to be informed of its launch.
