T.S. Marvin Bible

Submitted by Nick




The following family record was taken from the T. S. Marvin family Bible, which passed from Tip Marvin to his daughter, Ruth (Marvin) Houpt, to her granddaughter, Miss Doris R. Houpt, and then to her nephew, Thomas Hamilton Houpt, grandson of H. K. and Ruth (Marvin) Houpt, all of Shelby, and now (2006) in the possession of Cindy (Houpt) Hornikel, daughter of the late T. H. Houpt, of Stiving Road, between Shelby and Mansfield, Ohio.

Stephen Lipton Marvin (1839-1913), son of Silas and Judith (Kemp) Marvin, resided at 84 N. Broadway in Shelby, Ohio. He went by "T. S." and was commonly called "Tip" Marvin. This record is particularly important because it identifies the parents of Judith (Kemp) Marvin, (1807-1895) as Edward and Eve (Penrod) Kemp who are buried at West Liberty, Crawford Co., OH.
