Notes:  Marcus was a minister with Baptist Church connections.  He preached throughout Kentucky and aided in founding many churches and performed many weddings in Menifee County, Kentucky.

Marcus also was a farmer.  His farm, located in Menifee County, consisted of an apple orchard, cows, and pigs.  He made the following land purchases as recorded in the Index to Deeds for Menifee County:
  1.   On 29 Mar 1897, tract on Tar Ridge from Asa B. Egelston (his father).
  2.   On 20 Nov 1901, 100 acres on Fletcher Ridge from Joseph Murphy & wife.

When he was too old to maintain the farm, Marcus and his wife Ora moved to Middletown, Butler County, Ohio, to be closer to their sons.  From Middletown they moved to Owensboro, Kentucky, where they were living when Ora died.  After her death, Marcus moved back to Middletown, Ohio.  Upon his death, Marcus was returned to Menifee County and buried in the family cemetery.
