Remembering Earl Reid Marcum, U.S. Army Veteran, WWII|
2011-02-13 - Photo from the Marcum family collection. Sulphur Well, KY
Earl Reid Marcum, United States Army Veteran, WWII, lived through the experience of the war but was never able to speak much about it in the years afterward as he raised his family and worked to earn a living on his farm in northern Metcalfe County. He married Geniece Leftwich and they had three children, Linda Reid, Joseph Keith and Jane Todd. He is pictured here in the living room of the little house he and his father-in-law, Walter Scott Leftwich, built in the early 1950s. One of his favorite pastimes in addition to fishing was performing in David Froggett's local country music band that played regularly for a time at the Metcalfe Lake and Park. His smooth tenor voice still plays in the memory of his daughter, Linda, who sang along to songs like "There's a Goldmine in the Sky" and "Happy Days are Here Again" from the back seat during rides in his purple Studebaker. The latter was a very popular riding-down-the-road song when the family was out campaigning for Happy Chandler during a brief state job experience.
