About Marshall Eugene DeWolfe

Son of First Lady Florence Kling Harding and her first husband, Henry (Pete) DeWolfe. Marshall was the step-son of President Warren G. Harding.

Abandoned by his father, his mother gave custody of Marshall to her father Amos Kling and the boy was raised in the Kling household as Kling's son.

Marshall later came to use the "Kling", "DeWolfe", and on occassion, "Harding", surnames at different period in his life.

Married, he became the father of two children (later divorced by his wife), he attempted a career in newspaper publishing before dying from TB in Colorado.

His death received no mention in his step-father's newspaper, The Marion Star, his burial was private, and there is no stone to mark his grave.

During the Presidential campaign of 1920, the fact that Mrs. Harding had been divorce once, and the fact that she had a son were both facts that were not discussed.
