Marion Moran and Friends, circa 1900
This wonderful picture was taken in the late 1890's or possibly very early 1900's. Marion Moran is the girl in the center wearing the dark skirt. There was no writing on the back so we have no idea if this was a ladies club or just some of her many friends posing together. Marion married Charles H. Cobb of Union City in 1905 and they had one child, Carolyn Elizabeth Cobb. Tragically, Marion's life ended when she jumped from a bridge near Camden Tennessee in 1934. We will never know why she jumped but whispers down the years said she was extremely unhappy with her home life.
