    I have this Album that a Relative of Marsh Bros. has. There are over 70 Photos!! Famous for the steam car land speed record in 1898 in Whitman Mass. 38mph. They where from Pembroke and got into Cars and motorcycles!!! She said the factory was in Ohio??? I get Brockton Ma. Looking for more info for her and her husband. They are in their 90's. I looked up the Charlie Chaplin Movie the first scenes are of a funny car. Charlie was a genus!!! Check it out on utube. There was a Realto Theatre Brockton!!! Will keep looking!!! Have other feelers out!!! Thought you would like to see the pics!!!

      Thanks all for the loves!!! Mystery Solved!! Their car plant converted to making Munitions for the War After the WWI they moved all the equipment in 145 railroad cars to Cleveland Ohio and spent 2 years using their own money to build The Marsh Motor Co. The album shows them building the factory!!! The Depression in 1921 drove them under!!! They only built 12 cars!!! They went bankrupt in 1923.
      I will post more Pics Soon!!!

      Thanks again for the LOVES!!!
