Marzee Erb died of breast cancer in San Antonio; on her death certificate her address was listed as 724 Essex Street, San Antonio. It also indicated that she had lived at that address for 46 years, which is not correct. I think this was the address of her brother, Jess Lay.

Following is the transcript of a letter written by Marzee Erb to her aunt Caroline Huff Scoggin in 1924:309

"Rio Frio,  3 -- 1924
Mrs. G.W. Scoggin,
Dear Aunt,
I just read the notice about Uncle's passing away.  So sorry I could not be near you just now, think of you and your nice family so often, but so busy out in these Mountains lost you (sic).  Uncle and you were so nice to me when I was in Mo. I shall never forget you.  God knows best.  He doeth all things well,  "Trust in him at all times ye people, pour out your heart before him God is a refuge for us."
Tell some of the girls to write to some of us.  Frank is in Dayton Ohio, I will tell her to write you.
Do not know if you will get this so will not write a long letter.  My husband has charge of this E. (encampment?) grounds for yrs. wish you could come to Encampment -- begins 4th of July they come by hundreds for hundreds of mi. & camp.
Lovingly your niece,
Marzee M. Erb."
