They appear in the 1910 census.
From Google Maps it looks as if the Marshall's old house has recently been demolished -a new housing development was under construction when the Google car passed by.

These human interest stories are always interesting -the cameo image of Mr Marshall at the window looks very Chandleresque. Reminds me of The High Window and Mrs Elizabeth Bright Murdock.
