    She married Ephraim Marble, whose parents had
immigrated from Vermont.
    In 1826 their daughter, Rachel Cevilla was born in
Adams Center, Jefferson County, New York. When she
was about six years old they went into the "Black River"
country, near Alexandria Bay and made a home for
themselves in the wilderness.
    Rachel Sevilla Marble married Charles Stevens,
whose family was of the same New England stock. In
the fall of 1853 the two families consisting of Mr. and
Mrs. Marble and Mr. and Mrs. Stevens, with their three
children, left New York State for Wisconsin coming di-
rectly to Appleton, of which they had already heard
through copies of the "Appleton Crescent" sent to them
by relatives there.
    Mrs. Marble died in 1883 in Appleton and her daugh-
ter, Mrs. Stevens, died in 1889, in Appleton.
    Two daughters of Mrs. Stevens, Mrs. Hannah
Stevens Baker and Mrs. Aimee Stevens Priest, both born
in Jefferson County, New York, are still living here.

     The annals of Oshkosh Chapter National Society
 Daughters of the American Revolution, would be incom-
 plete, indeed, without special mention of a member to
 whom the chapter loves to render homage in apprecia-
 tion of her long service as an officer. Chaplain for many
 years, in fact during the greater part of the time since
 its organization, the quiet, uplifting and spiritual in-
 fluence of Ida Cline Bartlett has always been felt.
     While perhaps, not a pioneer of Wisconsin, in the
 strictest meaning of the word, the subject of this sketch
 has been a resident of this city and state since 1884.
