Has anyone ever found or seen such information relating to Rick Marshalls immediate family? or anything in regards to who his family were?

I noticed a topic that he came into to procession of a large sum of money due to a deceased family member, i’m wondering if anyone can expand on this information?
Who from?
The year?
How substantial? was the relative wealthy?

I’ll gladly taken all anecdotal answers :D

edit.

I know it’s a long shot what i’m thinking but i’m rather sure Edward marshall was from Texas. Hopefully can find something more conclusive.

I have heard or seen this before, but i question the narrative as it seems Rick or Joe came from a semi wealthy family and it requires that he assumed the identity of a bum whilst hitchhiker.

Also, the informant report names him as Rick whilst suggesting that the informant is closely related, come to think of it that informant report stinks a little.

Yes. Here is an incomplete timeline of Marshall/Dickey that I put together…..

-March 13, 1926: Joe Don Dickey born in Lubbock County, TX to Jewel Silvester Dickey (8/31/1892 – 6/17/1975) and Ollie Mae Scarborough (1/1/1892 – 1/9/1930). Jewel and Ollie were married June 11, 1916. His older brother, Aubrey Dale Dickey, was born April 2, 1919 in Raton, NM. Aubrey lived in the Sacramento area at some point. Joe Don’s father remarried, to Minnie Mae Wilson. She passed away July 4, 1975, just a couple weeks after Jewel’s death.
-August 1941: Joe Don Dickey (of Hamlin, TX) enlists with the Navy in Dallas, TX.
-August 1941: Joe Don Dickey (Hamlin) accepted for enlistment in the marine corps by Abilene recruiting office. Transferred to Dallas. I take it he didn’t end up getting into the Navy for whatever reason.
-October 1942: Joe Don Dickey (of Hamlin) attending school in Marfa, TX. His father, J.S. Dickey, is conductor on the Presidio-Fort Stockton Run.
-December 1942: J.S. and Joe Don Dickey leave Marfa for their home in San Angelo, TX.
-February 1943: Joe Don Dickie of McCamey, TX accepts position with the Garza Theatre in Post, TX.
-June 8, 1944: Joe Don Dickey of Runnels Co., Texas enlists in the military… again.
-1946 & 1947: Dickey is going to college in Phoenix, AZ.
-1948: Dickey is living in Marfa, TX. at the Marfa Army Air Field. This base became in airport in or before 1948, so I would assume that Dickey was an employee of the airport and not of the U.S. Army.
July 1950: Richard Reed Marshall (of Hamlin) enlists with Navy in Dallas, TX. Is this Dickie using a fake name or is this the REAL Richard Reed Marshall?
-1954 (possibly 1953): Richard Reed Marshall (of USS Castor) writes a letter (a snippet of which is available on google books) to Photography Magazine.
-1954: Working for Boeing Airplane Co. in Seattle, WA. I’m not sure which name he is using, but the Social Security application he filled out in Seattle was for the name of Richard Reed Marshall. It’s hard to read the date on the application, but it looks like April of 1950 or maybe April 1954, I really can’t tell.
-September 8, 2008: Rick Marshall dies at a nursing home in Sacramento, CA.

I’ll edit and add to this when I get a chance… I know Marshall was living in Roswell, NM and working at a movie theater there at some point.

Glen Glass and Floyd Bartling were the informants. They knew him as Rick.

Well, it’s possible Harvey knew Rick Marshall even if they weren’t related or regardless of Rick’s real name. Wasn’t Harvey a Ham radio operator? I think relentless said he was? Rick Marshall was as well. We know Harvey hung out in San Francisco so it’s possible they knew each other.

It seems Harvey could have been a bit of a film buff, he mentions several movie stars throughout his writings. Most were current to the 60’s but there were some older ones too. He also had several old quality photos of what appear to be singers and dancers. This photo has Casa Manana Revue stamped on the back. The information I found on Casa Manana Revue was that it was a musical short film made in Ft Worth Texas.

Yes a ham radio user and owner of a printing press, wasn’t just the surname that made me curious as the informant report stated the odd pieces of paper.
