Obituary of Theodore Marquis, Faribault, Minnesota.

Theodore Marquis, who died January 13, 1916, at Faribault, Minn., was born February 2, 1835, in Jefferson County, Ind. In 1855 he went to Minnesota and from there in 1860 to the South, where on March 13, 1862, he enlisted in Company I, 28th Mississippi Cavalry, and served during the entire war, with the exception of the time he was wounded and in the hospital. He was in Vicksburg during the siege and was taken prisoner at Franklin, Tenn., where he was wounded. He was released from Point Lookout Prison June 6, 1865.

After the war Mr. Marquis returned to the North, and in 1869 he was married to Miss Elizabeth Jane Cowan, who died in 1911. Almost totally deaf and with poor eyesight, he spent his declining years at the home of his daughter. He always kept in touch with his old comrades and was a faithful reader of the VETERAN. In 1909 he was presented with the Southern cross of honor.
