Mareen Henry Howard Duvall, 69, vice president of League, Duvall and Powell, Augusta Realty Firm, died yesterday morning in Rochester, Minn., where he had gone Sunday to undergo treatment at Mayo Brothers Clinic. Mr. Duvall, a native of Cheraw, S.C., came to Augusta as a youth and had resided here approximately 50 years. Prior to joining James R. League in forming a realty firm in 1915, he had been employed as manager of the local office of the Postal Telegraph Company. He was a former president of the Augusta Chamber of Commerce and always took an active part in any movement designed to improve Augusta's civic and cultural life. He was a member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church and had served as a vestryman a number of years. At the time of his death, he was a director of the Georgia Power Company. In ill health the last several years, Mr. Duvall left Augusta Sunday for Rochester in company with his wife. Death came yesterday shortly after his arrival in the Minnesota City, where he planned to seek treatment at the Mayo Brothers Clinic. In addition to his wife, Mr. Duvall is survived by two brothers, one sister, and several nieces and nephews, all of Cheraw, S.C. Funeral arrangements will be made and announced following his wife's return here tomorrow morning.

Duvall-1396 and Duvall-1260 appear to represent the same person because: These profiles are for the same person. One gives the place of burial (Georgia) as the place of death; the other correctly states the place of death (Minnesota). Duvall-1260 is much more complete. If the manager of Duvall 1396 would read the obituary, he/she would realize that the two profiles are for the same person and that his/her place of death is incorrect. These profiles should be MERGED.
