Union, Arkansas.10 He

Marcus, Walter, w, m, 25, single, Works on Farm, AR, unk., unk.

It appears that Walter and his younger sister Analiza are working for Mr. Cameron.

(Maggie was 4 years younger than Walter on the 1900 census, so I'm not sure of
her actual birth year.)
He died on 2 Jan 1912 in Union Co., Arkansas.44 Walter probably died before January 1920, since
there is a widowed Margaret D. Marcus living with a niece or nephew on the 1920
census. It's likely Mr. Cameron is her nephew, since Walter and his sister Annie
were living with a Cameron in 1880. Walter probably died in Union Co., Arkansas,
since every census with him is for Union Co.
It is likely he is the J. W. Marcus who is buried in Scotland Cemetary in
Union Co., Arkansas.
J. Walter MARCUS and Margaret D. (Maggie) MCWHARTER were married about 1883.45 There's is likely the marriage
Marcus, J. W. to McWharter, D. M., 1883, Book F Page 288.
Margaret D. (Maggie) MCWHARTER was born on 19 Dec
1844 in Alabama.42 Her
probable tombstone lists her birth date as 19 Dec 1844. The 1900 census gives
her a birth year of 1857, while the 1880 census gave about 1848.
She appeared in the census on 19 Jun 1880 in Tubal Twp. Union, Arkansas.10 She is probably listed in
