MARSHALL M. TAYLOR.
A resident of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, for the past seven years, Marshall M. Taylor has materially contributed to the growth and commercial development of this city, having in his capacity as real-estate operator had a large share in platting the newer portions opened for building purposes. He was born in Jackson county, May 17, 1862, a son of Stephen L. and Cecelia (Dupuy) Taylor, the father being for many years occupied in running a grist mill near Fulton, Iowa. Marshall M. Taylor obtained his education in the common schools of Jackson county, Iowa, and in 1886 came west with his brother John B. Taylor, locating in eastern Oregon.
Later he removed to Cheney, Washington, where he was city marshal for a period of two years. He then engaged in the clothing business with his brother, but after a time sold out and left Cheney for Wallace, Idaho, where the brothers conducted a clothing business for nine years. In 1904 they came to Coeur d'Alene and organized the Lake City Hardware Company but sold out the controlling interest after a year and a half, in order to devote their entire time to real-estate transactions. They have been very successful in this last venture and since commencing their real-estate operations have laid out the following additions to Coeur d'Alene: Taylor, Lake Shore, College and Taylor's Park additions; Fruitland, a suburb and irrigation tract, and also Lawrence Park addition, being laid out in ten-acre tracts. Mr. Taylor has a natural turn for business, and is spirited and energetic, alive to
the many opportunities open to men who are not afraid to take a venture and who possess the qualities which win success.
Mr. Taylor was united in marriage at Cheney, Washington, on November 23, 1893, to Miss Edith Hubbard, a daughter of H. H. Hubbard, now of Coeur d'Alene. The Taylor residence is situated in the Lake Shore addition on the lake front commanding a beautiful view of Coeur d'Alene lake, and with its great sweeping lawns and the substantial boathouse it makes one of the most striking and attractive places in the city.
In his political predilections Mr. Taylor is republican. He was elected to the common council of the city, in April, 1911, to serve for a term of two years. Fraternally he is connected with the Knights of Pythias, having served through all the chairs of the Cheney lodge at Cheney, Washington, and is now a member of the Coeur d'Alene lodge of the same brotherhood. Since his connection with local business interests Mr. Taylor has become known for his spirit of enterprise and his tireless energy, being progressive in his policy and quick to act when the occasion demands.
