About the Author
Tom Marquard grew up in Fairview Park, Ohio. Work relocations took he and his family to Boston, Buffalo and finally to the Detroit area, where he settled in 1976 . Tom retired in 2010 after 40 years in the health insurance industry and resides in Dearborn, Michigan with his wife Peggy. He has three wonderful children and five amazing grandchildren. Tom’s passion for history led him to become the family’s historian. Boxes of documents, photos and memorabilia ended up in his possession and he considered it important to record and share those memories with current and future generations as well as for posterity. His original intent was to put it all down on paper strictly for family. Peggy convinced him to do it in book format and self-publish the valuable memoirs and history. In 2008 he published his first book with Lulu Press about his great grandfather on his mother’s side, “The 1864 Civil War Diary and Brief Biography of James B. Essig.” His second book was completed in 2013 based on his Uncle Cyril Marquard’s 1920 travel journal of the epic 1920 family trip out West, “Trains, Plains & Automobiles,” published by CreateSpace, an Amazon company. Since then he has worked exclusively on this book, his most difficult but most rewarding endeavor to date. All three books are available on Amazon. Tom may be contacted through the publishers or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Marquard Mansion or "Big House" as it was sometimes referred to is a story onto itself.
The real story is about the patriarch Phil H. and his children and relatives. Phil was dedicated to his family, friends and to helping those less fortunate. The lives and travels of the Marquards throughout the years and the good that came from Phil's businesses that also benefited the various charities and his faith are truly worthy of a book such as this one.
The real stories about real people and their lives are always better than fiction and this book is no exception !
