Mr. J. 0. Young,
Pensacola, Fla.

Dear Sir:

Your letter of the 15th at hand.

I am sending you today a few things that
may be of interest and allof which you may keep.
First, a short sketch of the life of William Marvin
written by his -daughter, Mrs. Ludint-ton .for .e- .w ----
paper at the time of his death. Also, an address on
the early history of Florida delivered by Judge Mar-
vin in"Lakehouse Hall", Skaneateles, in 1867, Also,
a historical sketch of Key West, Fla., and a bundle
of deeds to different lots in Florida, Some, I think,
on Anastasjia Island. Also an account of a visit he
made, July 4, 1837 to a White House reception in
Washington.

This constituts all that I find that would
be of interest with the exception perhaps ofa
short autobiographical skethh that he never finished
and which consists principally of family matters
-and of his religious opinions, and which we do not
like to part with.

If you should find any period of his life
that you would like to know about, and will let me
know, I will see if we can find it for you.


Yours truly,


BFP:S

Mr. J. C. Younge,
1924 E. Jackson St.,
PensaoolaL, i.

Dear Sir:

Your letter of May 7 in regard to Gov.
William Marvin Has been Handed to me.

I together with his so-in-n-law, General
Ludington, were the exeotltors of his estate. Judge
SMarvin d...l.t in.-902 and..General Lud.ngton.died in
1919. His wife was the only child of Jdge 2ii i.n
and the principal heir of his estate. Judge Marvin
married his second wife, an aunt of my. wife in about
1866, and lived here until his death. His portrait
hangs over my desk as -I write.

He was, I think, the finest man I ever
knew, and held in highest regard in this community,
and I am very glad that something is being done to
preserve his memory in Florida, where he was I
understand, Provisional Governor during the recon-
struction period. As he lived until his ninety-fourth
year, his immediate family was pretty well scattered
and many of them dead,

I should be very pleased to get what data
I can including a short sketch of his life and send
it to you. I am under the impression that a large
photograph of Judge Marvin was sent sometime to the
State Capitol at Tallahasee.

WILLIAM MkfeVIN N'


Was born in Fairfield, Herkimer Country, New York, April

14, 1808. His parents moved to Dryden, Tompklns Country, N. Y.

during his infancy, and there he grew up, going to school in

winter and working on the farm in summer. He studied law and

was admitted to practice in the State CoUrts in 1833.

In 1835 he was appointed by President Jackson United States

District Attorney for the .Souterh District of the Teritory of

Florida, and made his residence on the island of Key West.

In 1839 he was appointed by President an'-Buren to be Judge

of the Superior Court of the same district, which office he

held until 1845, when Florida became a State of the Union.

The Legislature of the State then elected him to be Judge of

the Circuit Court, which office he declined. In 1847 he was

appointed by President Polk to be Judge of the District Court

of the United States for the Southern District of Florida,

and continued to discharge the duties of that office until

1863, when he resigned on account of impaired health, and

removed to his native State.

As a delegate to the State Coivention held at Tallahassee,

Florida, in 1860, he did all in his power to prevent the secession

of the State from the Union, and after its secession, continued

to hold his Court, protected by the United States military and
naval authority ies.

Many of his decisions in prize cases tried before him at

Key West are leading decisions.

In July 18@8, he was appointed by President Johnson as

Provisional Governor of Florida, to assist in the reconstruction

of the State Government, and served as such until a Governor


was elected under the newly-adopted Constitution.

He was the author of a bodk entitled "Wreck and Salvage",

published in 1858, and of a book called "The Authorship of the

Four Gospels," published in 1885.

He resided in the village of Skaneateles from 1866 to the









'I














time of his death, July 9, 1902; was president of the village

for one term (1876), and president of the Skaneateles Library

from its organization in 1877 until his death in the niney-fifth

of his age.

His genial personality, high mental acquirements and christian

traits of character, won for him the lasting respect of all who

knew him.

This photograph is presented to the Skaneateles Library by

his daughter, Harriet Marvin Ludington (Mrs. Marshall. I. Ludington).

For the three months following the death of Gov. M.ilton, Florida was
without a governor, until Pres. Johnson, realizing the imperative necessity
of re-establishing the state government, in July appointed WilliUm Marvin,
a man of northern birth, as provisional governor.

Born in Fairfield, N.Y., his boyhood days were spent among the stones
and stubble fields of his father's farm. His education he acquired in the
district school, and Home Academy, N.Y., and at the early age of 15 he became
a school teacher in Phelps, N.Y. but found time to begin the study of law,
Such perserverance could not fail to win. Four presidents honored him with
appointments. Prc-s. Jackso in 1835, appointed him district attorney for
Southern Florida, whereupon he at once removed to Key West. Four years later
Pres. Van Buren appointed him judge. In 1849, Pres. 2olk made him district
judge, which office he filled until ill health compelled him to resign it in
1863. Two years later Pres. Johnson made him provisional governor. "Some
are born to honors, others have honors thrust up-n them".

Gov. Marvin served until January, 1866, and in October was elected Democratic
sneator, b.ut was refused a se.-t in the Senate because the enfr:.nchisement of
the negro had been made the condition of representation in either house for the
southern states, but Florida, in her ne'u constitution gave the negrro all
civil rights, but withheld the voting provilege. In 1867 Marvin remarried and
removed to Skaneateles, N.Y., where he gave his attention to literary work,
and published several books, passing the balance of his days in this peaceful
occupation,
