Notable Residents Section[edit]

I have removed the links for Anthony Thomas and John Bourne. While both are commemorated in town as heroes of the American Revolution, neither have their own pages on Wikipedia. The links that were on this page previously both went to disambiguations of those names, both common and neither including the exact people. I have also removed the link for Gen. Sawyer for similar reasons. ToddC4176 16:58, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

WW2[edit]

Didn't German submarines come to green harbor and everyone had to shut off there lights during WW2. Thats what my grandparents said who used to live there.

Demographics section[edit]

My jaw damn near hit the floor when I saw that 3.54% of Marshfield is Black or African American, largely because having grown up there I can attest that it was always entirely White, save for as many Asian families as there were Chinese restaurants to run (though now there's also two Japanese steakhouse/sushi bars and multiple Southest Asian offerings). I checked the citation link at the bottom and it gives a much more realistic sounding 0.5%, roughly 1/7 the figure in the article. Am I looking at an out of date census page, or should the article be amended? Also, I hope to hear from deeceevoice explaining how, with regard to Daniel Webster "da brotha waz chocolate brown, y'all! f*ck all a yall racis-a$$ white ppl tryna take credit!" lpl 24.91.244.221 (talk) 23:57, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
