About Marks Mississippi


The town of Marks was named after Leopold Marks (born 1851 - died 1910) who left Germany to avoid conscription by the German army. He landed in New York in 1868. He knew no English and arrived with only 27 cents in his pockets.

Nonetheless, Leopold Marks was Quitman County's first representative to the state legislature and served in that capacity for eight years. In 1875 he married; his wife, Pauline Marks, was born in 1852 but her year of death is unknown.
