     Marvin made his will at New LebanonG on 27 September 1901. He left all his estate, real and personal, to his wife Julia during her lifetime. He left $1,000 "to buy a place" for the heirs of their eldest son Frederick. Frederick was not named as a direct heir of his father's estate and it may be that he had received land or other assets during his father's lifetime. Their other four children, Allen, Harry, Grace, and Fanny, were to inherit after Julia's death. In the event, Harry took his share in 1902, and Marvin added a codicil to his will, noting this fact and ordering that Harry was not to receive a further share.11
