Marion Kathryn Nehring was born on the stroke of midnight, April 19/20, 1912, to Bynum homesteaders Edward and Minna Nehring. Her early years spent on the family ranch spawned her lifelong love of horses, cattle, and the ranching lifestyle. She graduated from Bynum grade school and attended Choteau High for a year. Her mother decided Marion needed some education towards proper “ladylike” behavior, so took her to Cincinnati, Ohio, the original family home. Marion’s school records were not accepted by Cincinnati schools, so she enrolled in Telegraph School instead.
