The United States Social Security Death Index reports a Clifford Marker, born 3 May 1894, died June 1975, a resident of Concord, Contra Costa County, California. Note that our Clifford Marker's parents did not get married until December 1897; and if he was our Clifford Marker, the Social Security record is suspect for this reason and because if Clifford was born in 1894 he would have been age about 27 when he received his degree from Amherst.

Her maiden name might be Hicks instead of Steele, re "Marriage Notices" as reported from weekly newspapers, volume 2, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. "Marriage Notices" report they married 27 May ?1873. But by 1873, daughter Elsie would have been about 4 years old. Could it be that Edward married first a Steele and then Lavinia Hicks. His obituary says Steele and I expect this is correct. Perhaps she was Lavinia Hicks Steele.
