CLAYTON MARION, GROVE TOWNSHIP.
In the summer of 1854 Clayton Marion bought a claim of Jesse Marshall on section 34, where he built a cabin and made some improvements. After living there for over a year he sold his farm and removed to section 24, where he resided until the gold excitement took so many from the county, when he joined the rush to Colorado. He was much respected, and both he and his wife died in that State.
