A July 2015 visit to the site of the farm house. Marble descendant Jon Woods found the abandoned house still there about 10 years ago, although it had collapsed. He believes that Milton Marble probably built the house upon his arrival in Table Rock in 1870.
The house sat on a hill overlooking a deep canyon at the bottom of which is a creek. Jon says that his dad (long gone in old age) remembered a marvelous swimming hole below the house.

Floyd Vrtiska, born in 1926, during 2014 oral history session, was asked about Marble. Floyd said only, "I knew who he was, I’d seen him and talked to him but didn’t know him personally. I knew a lot about him. He w active in community affairs. He was on the school board, town board, other boards, pretty aggressive individual. Everybody knew him."

M. H. Marble's first wife, Maria Bump Marble, died young. He later married Amanda (Amy) Marble. I believe he had two children, Alice and Max, but I am not certain of that; I've put them here as a suggestion.
