All of Marion's Marvel appreances take place in 1936. She's in #6-12, #14, #16, #17-18, #20-23 and 25. (She is also mentioned in #16.) You should buy the Ominbus edition, Annie. It's well worth it!

So that's six issues of Marion appearances from June 1982 - Dec 1982. It is implied in most of these that the adventures take place in late 1936, though with the state of the timeline at the moment, I'm more likely to lean towards 1937. The comics don't always state the year in the intro.

As far as I can remember she also appears in #16 and #17 (whichever are the Search for Abner issues, which I am looking very forward to in Volume 2) and there's more I'm sure before her last appearances in #22 and #23 (which I look very forward to seeing in the Omnibuses). The later ones would have to be taking place in 1937 and would work within the years discussed in the Ultimate Guide and in KOTCS.
...Just had another look and I made a mistake about #23 being her last. She's also in #25 (but not with Indy, she is pissed at him). After that chapter, it's "Adios, muchachos!" for Marion! As for the dates, only the last few (#31-34) are in 1937. #30 says "circa 1936". Hope that helps.
