Settlement date question[edit]

The history section previously stated: Marshfield was settled in 1868,[1] quoting the Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer. Jones' 1923 History of Wood County agrees that the Rivers arrived in 1868, but the 1997 The Marshfield Story 1872 - 1997 clearly contradicts, stating 1872. The newer source was apparently written by Jeff Kleiman, a local history professor, and reviewed by other local historians, so I'm inclined to favor it, though I don't know the evidence for the later date.

Trim Notable People section?[edit]

There are several people on the "Notable People" section who should probably be removed. Several of them may have been born at the hospital in Marshfield but grew up in Stratford, Auburndale, Pittsville, etc. Is someone who grew up and lived 20 miles from Marshfield really a notable person from Marshfield? Seems to be a stretch. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.233.94.241 (talk) 16:58, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
