About Thomas Marvel, Jr.

Thomas Marvel., Jr., second son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Huggins) Marvel, was born in Sussex County, Delaware. He grew to manhood on his father's plantation. From the earliest times, peach growing was one of the main industries of Delaware and the Marvel family gave much attention to their orchards. From the luscious fruit they made brandy. A flagon of this beverage always stood upon the family table, and occupied a special position upon every festal board.

They also gave their attention to the raising of fine horses. The four sons of Thomas Marvel had a liking for horses and has been said, "They had a way with the beast". When they went courting, no other, could compete with the horseflesh these young men were riding.

Thomas Marvel, Jr., married Susanna Parker or Rodney. She was the mother of his children. His second wife, Patience, last name unknown. The will of Thomas Marvel, Jr., dated December 15, 1801, names the following children: Thomas, Joseph, Parker, Stephen, Robert, Eli, Obediah, Elisha and Patience. Two other children, Elizabeth and Isaac, mentioned in another record, are not listed in his will. No doubt they were dead at that time.
