Mr. Marshall is a highly cultivated gentleman; was educated at the University of Virginia; served as a Confederate soldier throughout the war; was a Lieutenant in his Cousin James Marshall's Co. "E," Twelfth Regiment Virginia Volunteers, and proved himself a gallant soldier and splendid officer; was dangerously wounded, June 9, 1863, at Brandy Station, and was confined to the hospital until peace enabled him to return to his patrimonial estate, "Priestly," situated seven miles south of Markham, in Fauquier County, Virginia. He has not yet entirely recovered of his severe wound. He is a vestryman of Leeds' Church, and all his family are in the Episcopal Church. His wife is a beautiful and charming lady, and I was much pleased by the hearty reception she gave me, when I visited her in 1884; and her letters show high literary acquirements. She was educated at the Southern Female Institute, at Richmond, Virginia.

728 ROBERT MORRIS MARSHALL, b. at "Edgeworth," Fauquier County, Virginia., July 12, 1845; d. October 13, 1863. At the age of seventeen he entered as a private, Company E, Twelfth Virginia Cavalry, C. S. A., at the beginning of the war. His spirit and galantry placed him ever in front, and before twelve months of the strife were past he was a veteran. He participated in many battles, and his eagerness for the fray caused his death. He had been detailed for the duty of conveying to the grave the remains of Lieut. Thos. Marshall (712), his former leader, when he learned that his companions expected to go into action. He joined them and was killed. His body was brought home and buried at Leeds church, where a handsome shaft is a testimonial of the love of friends.

March 16, 1769, d. November 10, 1815. Aunt Taylor was handsome, dignified, intelligent and amiable. She received her education chiefly in the family circle, and teaching was the theme of her thoughts and the business of her life. The death of her husband gave her intense anguish. The strain upon her mind was so severe as to cause apprehensions of insanity. Her physician recommended some employment to turn her thoughts from her bereavement. She engaged in teaching, and opened a large school in Petersburg, Virginia. Her mind became absorbed with her new duties, and she succeeded admirably. After a time she removed her school to Richmond. About 1837, after the marriage of her oldest daughter, she visited her relatives in Kentucky, in company with her two younger daughters, Sallie and Georgianna. I met her at the house of her niece, Mary K. Green (180), near Danville. She spent several weeks with the family. All were highly pleased with mother and daughters. The latter were remarkable for their skill in music. On her return to Virginia, she continued to teach, and her friends claim that her system of education was new and admirable. But her eyesight began to fail, and she finally became totally blind, after having overtaxed her eyes by reading small print. But she still preserved her cheerfulness, and learned to read by touch, as the blind are taught. She died at "Mt. Ephraim," the seat of the Royalls.

78 NANCY MARSHALL, b. at "Oakhill," Fauquier County, Virginia., about 1781; = 1803, COL. JOE HAMILTON DAVIESS, son of Joseph and Jean Daviess, b. in Bedford County, Virginia., March 4, 1774; killed at the battle of Tippeconoe, November 8, 1811. About 1779, his parents moved to the vicinity of Danville, Kentucky. He received from tutors a good classical education. In 1792 he had his first experience in Indian warfare, under Gen. Adair, who crossed the Ohio and made an incursion as far as Fort St. Clair. Upon his return, he studied law with the celebrated George Nicholas. He was a laborious and indefatigable student, and when, in 1795, he was licensed, took a high position at the bar; settled at Danville, but being appointed United States Attorney for the district of Kentucky, removed to Frankfort; thence to Owensboro, and lastly to Lexington. In 1806 he distinguished himself by his spirited prosecution of Aaron Burr, for treason. In 1811, he accompanied Gen. Harrison in his expedition to the Wabash, and at Tippecanoe fell, in a charge upon the Indians. Col. Daviess was of tall and commanding person -- a brilliant orator, and a profound lawyer His death spread a cloud of gloom over Kentucky. He was greatly beloved, and was regarded as the most promising young man of the West.

Aunt Nancy, I remember, when, in my childhood, she visited her friends in Mason. She was cross-eyed, but intelligent and spirited. Her patrimonial estate was on the lower Ohio, and she found society chiefly in Louisville. She married as her second husband, William Pollard. He lived but a short time. Late in life she married a Mr. Cox, and after a few unhappy months experience, was divorced. She was a member of the Christian (Disciples) church. She had no children.

Mrs. Foree was much beloved and highly esteemed for her graces and virtues. Her photograph attests her remarkable beauty, and those who knew her pronounce her name with veneration. I visited Judge Foree in 1884. He is a patriarchal old gentleman, with that benignity of countenance and cordiality of manner that inspires love as well as confidence. He was a second son of William P. Foree and Elizabeth J. Major, of Shelby County, Kentucky. After receiving his literary education at Transylvania University, and graduating in the law department of that Institution in March, 1843, he settled at Charleston, Miss., and engaged in the practice of law. He represented Tallahatchie County, Miss., in 1848, and was Probate Judge for a term; returned to Shelbyville, Kentucky., 1852; represented Shelby County in 1871-72; has been elected County Judge three times, and is now presiding Judge of the Court of Magistrates. A Democrat, he is one of the active and influential politicians of Kentucky.

84 JANE MARSHALL, a maiden sister of Senator Humphrey Marshall, lived and died in Paris, Kentucky., and is well remember by old people there. Her will is perhaps the best record, extant, of her life. It was probated September 5, 1836. She gives to:

1. Jane Catlett, a lot in East Maysville and a negro.

2. Frances M. Wall, her niece, several negroes for life, and remainder to her children, if any; and if none, to revert, and go to Jane Marshall, her brother James' daughter, to Jane Whittington, daughter of Thomas and Mary Whittington, to Anna Maria and Catherine Morrison, her nieces. No. 1030, 1032.

3. Samuel G. Wall, her "dear little nephew," a negro, &c.

4. George W. Wall, her "little nephew," a bed for the benefit of his mother for life, and then to go to him.

5. Anna Marshall, daughter of Judge Marshall, a negro, &c. No. 1020.

6. I bequeath $50 to my sister January, &c. She authorizes a slave Robert to buy himself, and the proceeds to go to Matilda E. January, daughter of Peter and Isabella January. She gives to Anne Breeden certain notes.

The will is witnessed by Jos. Stephens, D. R. Williams, and Thos. A. Marshall. Geo. W. Wall appears to have administrated, and in settlement, November 5, 1837, shows assets $223.64, from which he paid to John M. Breeden, husband and administrator of Anne Breeden, $75; to W. H. Cummins, who had married ?? Whittington, $75; and to Elizabeth January $40; leav?? hands $33.64

856 MARY PAXTON, b. in Washington, Kentucky., October 22, 1813; d. in Flemingsburg, Kentucky., March 5, 1868, = December 5, 1831, in Mason County, Kentucky., BENJ. HARBESON, b. in Pennsylvania, July 18, 1810; d. in Flemingsburg, Kentucky., October 25, 1860. Sister Mary, after the death of our parents, was reared by our Aunt Lucy Marshall (178), in Mason County, Kentucky., and by our stepmother (180). Her finishing education was at a female school at Cincinnati, where she met Mr. Harbeson, then in the leather trade. She was married by Dr. Wm. L. Breckenridge, at our uncle, John Marshall's house, four miles west of Washington, Kentucky. After living a year in Cincinnati, Mr. Harbeson spent some years in, and near, Washington, when he purchased the Humphrey farm, two miles northwest of Washington. In 1844, he purchased the Cox farm, adjacent to Flemingsburg, and here he lived until his death. Sister Mary was tall and slender, with dark eyes and smiling face, cordial in her greetings and constant in her affections,--artless as a child, guileless as a lamb, and pure as the dews of heaven (See 244j). She united with the Presbyterian Church when young, and was seldom absent from the weekly prayer meeting, and the stated services of her church. Her pastor, Dr. J. P. Hendrick, thus notices her:

"It was my pleasure to know your sister well, during the latter years of her life, and there are but few persons whose memory I cherish with more sincere veneration and affection than hers. She was brought up in the neighborhood of Washington, Kentucky., and carefully instructed both in secular knowledge and divine truth. Early in life she yielded herself to the claims of the blessed Master, and became a communicant in the Presbyterian Church of Washington, Kentucky., then under the pastorate of John H. Conditt. I knew her best after her removal to Flemingsburg. She possessed great force of character. Her mind was quick in its operations, and well stored with useful knowledge. She was an observer of current events, read the periodical literature of her day, and in bible truth and ecclesiastical matters was well informed. Her religious convictions were clear, deep and controlling. Duties to her Master were paramount to all other duties, or rather permeated and entered into every other. Her piety was intelligent, uniform and consistent; and though her temperament was ardent, and at times enthusiastic, her religion was of the even and thorough type. In her personal attachments she was singularly earnest. Her friendships were warm and lasting. In early and middle life, she was a woman of remarkable

858 (a) ALEX. MARSHALL PAXTON, b. in Washington, Kentucky., February 4, 1816, d. in Covington, Kentucky., February 12, 1851, = in Covington, Kentucky., October 22, 1840, SALLIE BUSH, b. April 2, 1823, d. June 24, 1854, in Covington, Kentucky. My brother was called Marshall or "Mat." From his infancy he stuttered, and the mercantile business was selected for him. After receiving a good English education at Augusta College, and a smattering of Latin, from his cousin, Dr. J. A. McClung (272), he went to Cincinnati as a clerk in the wholesale grocery house of Kilgour, Taylor & Co. Here he remained until his majority, when he, with another clerk, started the wholesale house of Paxton & Keys, on Main street. Keys was a splendid salesman, and Marshall an excellent bookkeeper and correspondent The young men met with favor, and did a large business. After a few years, Lafayette Maltby (652) became a partner, and stationed himself at New Orleans; and branches were established at Rio and Havana. His marriage was extremely fortunate. Sister Sallie was one of the most amiable young ladies that I ever met. She made my brother's home an Eden of delight. She was a favorite among her husband's relatives. He was supremely blest in his lovely wife and blooming daughter (2164). They were beautiful in their lives, and in death they were not divided. At the age of thirty-five, he died of disease of the kidneys; and a few years later his widow followed him. They are buried at Covington. On the death of my brother, our sister Mary (856) wrote me a long letter, which is now mislaid. Sister Phoebe (188), in a letter dated April 16, 1851, writes: "Sister wrote you immediately on the death of our dear brother, and told you about his last days. It will be gratifying to you to know that Marshall, though delirious, mentioned you three times in the last day of his life. He appeared conscious that you were not near him, and was, I think, very anxious to see you. Brother, I think we will all be short lived. Our parents were so before us, and one of our number being taken, should warn us to prepare for death. God in his mercy grant that this effect may be produced on all of us. I send you a small lock of Marshall's hair." [Now before me.]

(b) I copy a letter from sister Sallie, dated Covington, Kentucky., May 4, 1851: "DEAR Brother--I send you by mail a likeness of your dear deceased brother. I would have sent it sooner, knowing it would have been a gratification to you to even see his likeness, but I have been entirely unfitted for anything. It is a copy of one I had, and therefore not so good a likeness. When Marshall received your letter desiring him to send you his likeness, he said it was just what he had been thinking of doing, and that he wanted yours. It would give me much satisfaction to have your likeness, and also to receive letters from you. The happiness and prosperity of your family will always be a subject of great interest to me. Lydia is in fine health. She feels more and more, every day, the loss of her dear father. My health is not good, but I have a great desire to live for the sake of my child. There are none who can supply the place of parents. I was much in hopes we would see you this spring. Lydia will write to you soon. I heard from sister Mary (856) and Phoebe (188) a short time ago. They were all well. Love to your wife. Ever your sister, Sallie P. Paxton." My brother lived most of his married life with his father-in-law, Philip Bush, one of the best men I ever knew. In 1870, I called at his house in Covington to see him. He was not at home, but I was told he could be found in the cemetery. All his family, except one daughter, were there, and he desired to be near them. He therefore had had himself appointed superintendent of the grounds, and he busied himself in making green the graves of those he loved. I went to the cemetery to meet him, and to drop a tear on my brother's grave. I found him there with several hands improving the grounds. But Oh, how he was changed! He was now unconcerned about this life. His dear ones and his home were beyond the skies. Instead of the genial, hearty salutation of his early life, he met me with a tear. Not long afterwards he was gathered to his own. While his dear ones lived, he was one of the most cordial and agreeable men I ever met. It was sunshine to the heart to be in his company. His unbounded love for "Marshall," and his perfect confidence in him, were his favorite themes. On the occasion referred to, he spoke of him so feelingly that my own grief was lost in his superior sorrow. When I look back to the dark and cheerless years of my brother's orphanage, I rejoice that he had ten years of married bliss, while surrounded by intelligent Christian friends, who loved and almost adored him. I will add the inscriptions on their tombs:


"MARSHALL PAXTON, born February 4, 1819; died February 12, 1851. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death. Rev. 21: 4."

"SALLY PENDLETON, daughter of PHILIP S. and V. BUSH, and wife of A. M. PAXTON, born April 2, 1823; died June 24, 1854. Looking unto Jesus. These all died in faith."

862 WILLIAM MCCLUNG PAXTON, b. in Washington, Kentucky., March 2, 1819, = October 1, 1840, MARY FORMAN, b. September 25, 1819. My father, when I was four years old removed to Columbus, O., to continue the practice of law; here my mother died. My father married again, the cousin of my mother, and we continued to reside in Columbus. In 1825 my father died, while on a visit to Kentucky, and his four children were left in charge of their step-mother. Though a faithful and pious woman, she had no love for children, and was over zealous in training, but wanting in affection. Perhaps it was for our good. She was a woman of uncommon intellectual accomplishments, but she had no patience with her wayward charges. Yet I owe so much to her instructions, that I shall never cease to thank her while she lives, and to honor her name when her gray hairs shall descend to the grave. (See No. 180.) We were sent to live with our Aunt, Lucy Marshall (178), whose indulgence was a veil of charity, that covered our many sins. But it was a severe change from parental love to the rule of a step-mother. After my mother's death, I had been my father's pet. I had inherited from the McDowells a flaming red head, and had derived from some unknown source a magnificent cowlick, which left my forehead large and prominent. These peculiar features called forth many remarks that were generally flattering. Our step-mother soon grew tired of us, and sent us to school, The nest was broken up, and the brood scattered. My sisters were sent to boarding schools, and my brother Marshall and I went two years to Augusta College. In 1832 we were at Cousin John A. McClung's, studying Latin under his tuition. There he left me, and became a clerk in a wholesale house in Cincinnati (858). Left alone, friendless, homeless and companionless, how I longed for affection and fellowship. In the "Orr Mansion," on the Ohio Cliffs, with its wide corridors, high ceilings, haunted halls, and clattering shutters, I had to sleep upstairs at the extreme end of the house, and out of hearing of the family, all alone. I was just at the ghostseeing age of thirteen. How happy I was when Aunt McClung would come, and allow me to make my pallet in her room. I next went to Cincinnati and spent two years at the Catholic "Athen`um" -- now St. Zavier's College. In December, 1834, my step-mother took me to Danville, Kentucky., and entered me in the Freshman Class of Center College. A month later she married Judge John Green (180), and I took up my home for four years at "Waveland," his hospitable dwelling a mile from Danville. Here the happiest years of my unmarried life were spent. In 1838 I returned to Washington, Kentucky., and entered on the study of law with McClung & Taylor, living with my sister Phoebe. In 1849, I was licensed, and after practicing a few months, removed to Platte County, Mo., where I still reside. In 1840 I returned and married Miss Mary Forman, whose beauty charmed my youth, whose love inspired my manhood, and whose faithfulness drives back the clouds of age. After our return to Missouri, I purchased a large body of unimproved land, and foolishly left my practice, to live on it. After nine years of unsuccessful farming, I returned to Platte City, and in 1850, opened a general store in partnership with Dr. H. B. Callahan. In 1853 we purchased the Platte City Water Mills. I was active in business, and had accumulated a small fortune. But when the war broke out, and all my friends went South, I found that my security debts exceeded my property, and I saw nothing but ruin before me. I therefore determined to resume the practice of law. I succeeded and all my debts were paid and a competency left. I paid $25,000 of other people's debts, without a suit being instituted against me. In 1870, finding myself free of debt and every liability, I divided what I had into five parcels, giving one share to my wife, three shares to my three daughters, and kept one for myself. But in 1875, I became hard of hearing, and my practice was ruined. My deafness has increased from year to year, until now I can converse only by using a trumpet. I still keep an office and make a few hundred dollars annually by conveyancing and examining titles. To employ the intervals of business, I commenced in 1878 to write poetry, and occasionally published a piece. In 1881, I issued a volume of 135 pages of my fugitive pieces, and gave six hundred copies to my friends. I had long been gathering genealogical data, and in 1884 I formed a chart of the Marshall family, and had it engraved. Two hundred copies were printed and sent to the principal members of the family. In July, 1884, I started on a visit to all my mother's relatives in Kentucky, Virginia and Maryland. My daughter, Phoebe, went with me. We spent two months going from house to house, during which I gathered the materials for this work. I have since been corresponding with friends all over the Union to get the facts to be embodied in my chart and book. If God spares me, I propose in a year or two, to issue another volume of poems, some of which have appeared in our county papers. I inherited Presbyterianism; have long been a member, and an elder in that church; have for thirty-five years superintended a Sabbath School, though deafness is a great disqualification. I was a Whig before the war, and a mighty poor party-Democrat since. I opposed secession with all my powers; sympathized deeply with friends at the South, but knew their cause was hopeless; never left my home for an hour; both parties seemed to think I was harmless, and let me alone. My decided stand against secession in the outstart, gave me influence with Federal officers, and I did much to soften the asperities of war in my county. I have only Southern blood in my veins--my friends and kindred are all in the South, and it was to save them that I raised my voice for the Union, and bowed to the stars and stripes. For the Forman family, see No. 660.

Cousin Aleck's father left him a handsome estate, which he has increased by prudent management. In early life he turned his attention to rearing fine stock; and, with a view of selecting the best breeds that the world afforded, he paid a visit to Europe, and after a thorough investigation, returned with a choice herd. He possesses untiring energy, sound judgment, and enlightened enterprise. A railroad depot is on his place, and he has fostered a little town at Marshall's station. He is growing wealthy, and is beginning to manifest some political aspirations. He often speculates successfully in tobacco and other produce. Everything about him indicates prosperity. I have often enjoyed his hospitality. Cousin Eliza has a heart full of kindness. She is a daughter of James Dudley and Eliza Shumate, of Flemingsburg, Kentucky.

Cousin Eliza was born and reared at Northfork, Mason County, Kentucky., and received a good education. She visited her maternal uncle, John Luke, at Louisiana, Mo., and there met her cousin, Mr. Anderson. They were married, and he arose to distinction, but his prodigality and their incompatibility of temper, caused a separtion in 1876, and Eliza is now living with her children, upon her brother A. K. Marshall's farm. I met her in 1884, and was much pleased with her and her noble children. Mr. Anderson graduated at Franklin College, Tenn.; went to Missouri in 1853; was in the House in 1859, and the Senate, 1862; was a Colonel of Militia from 1862 to 1864, in active service; was twice elected, as a Republican, to Congress. He is now practicing law in St. Louis. He is a gentleman of cordiality, sprightliness and humor, and a fine lawyer.

He served four years in the Confederate army as a private in the First Kentucky, or "Orphan Brigade," which was to the Western army what the famous "Stonewall Brigade" was to the army of Virginia. He is an accountant, and is employed at a good salary in Louisville, Kentucky. He is a gentleman of fine literary attainments, solid judgment, and enlightened views on the social and political questions of the day. His children have all found employment away from home, and with his wife he keeps house. She is in delicate health, and is a great sufferer. I visited them in 1884, and was much pleased with them. Cousin Kate is a charming lady, and her efforts to be agreeable in spite of the irritations of disease, call for sympathy as well as love. She was an Andrews, of Fleming County, Kentucky., and widow of William Walker

884 (a) JANE MARSHALL SULLIVANT, b. in Franklinton, Ohio, December 11, 1824, = May 30, 1843, ROBERT ELKIN NEIL, of Columbus, Ohio, b. May 12, 1819. Cousin Jane lost her mother a few days after her birth. But the feeble child survived, and when four years of age, she was sent with me and my orphan brother and sisters to live with Aunt Lucy Marshall (178) in that kindergarten she kept at her home. Cousin Jane grew in beauty and loveliness, and when I last saw her, at sweet seventeen, she possessed queenly beauty. For some years we have kept up an occasional correspondence. Though now upwards of sixty, she has not lost her dove-like innocence, purity and affection. I am vain enough to quote from one of her letters the following passage: "I assure you I appreciate the kind motive that prompted you to wish to keep up a correspondence with a cousin who never can forget how, as a mere child she loved you devotedly. I can see myself running to meet you and greet you in the evening, when returning from school to Uncle John's (178) --how you would take me in your arms, caress me and show me a thousand little kindnesses that won my heart's love and devotion. Those days of innocent childhood! How I look back upon them with fond remembrance--upon my innocence and faith in every one who was kind and tender to me. You, dear Cousin William, I believe, was my beau ideal of all manliness. I have often regretted that we had never met since those early days." Cousin Jane's home is in Columbus, Ohio, but she is often with her daughters in Washington or Brooklin, Mass. I have made two efforts to meet her in late years, but on both occasions she was with her daughter in New England. Mr. Neil is a gentleman of sound and practical judgment, a sagacious business man and a successful manager of his large patrimony. His father was wealthy, and his wife brought him a large estate. His father appointed him trustee of the large hotel in Columbus, known as the "Neil House." He has a large landed property in the city, which he is improving. His wealth enables him to give a generous aid to every local enterprise, whether of improvement, charity or religion. He leads in every business project for the advancement of the city, and he has done much to make Columbus a beautiful place.

92 ELIZABETH MARSHALL, daughter of John Marshall, = SAMUEL JANUARY, and lived many years in East Maysville, Kentucky., in the house now occupied by Col. Stanton. Mr. January was interred in the private burying ground near his house. I examined the lot in 1884, and could find no stone to the memory of any of the family. When a child, I remember visiting the family with my mother. After the death of Mr. January, his widow removed to Cynthianna, which became the home of his posterity.

URL title: Samuel January
Note:
SAMUEL JANUARY, sixth child of Peter and Deborah McMahon January, was born March 17, 1765 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He married ELIZABETH MARSHALL December 29, 1795 in Woodford County, Kentucky. She was born ca 1773 in Virginia. We know that Samuel was born on March 17, 1765 in Cumberland Co. Pennsylvania, and moved to Kentucky while in his teens. He along with his father and three brothers fought in the American Revolutionary War. He is listed several times in George Rogers Clark and His Men Military Records, 1778-1784. Samuel and his team of horses were paid for 10 days work on the fort at Lexington in April of 1781. He served with Lt. Francis McDonnal's Co. of Militia of Fayette Co. on March 9-10, 1783. He also served with Capt. Robert Patterson's Co. of Militia from June 20 until July 26, 1782.
Records show that he married Elizabeth Marshall, first cousin of Chief Justice John Marshall, on December 29, 1795, in Woodford County, Kentucky.
Samuel moved from Lexington, where he was a lot-holder, etc., to Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky in the early 1800's. He became a successful tavern keeper, among other enterprises. His home in what was then called "Limestone" is on the corner of Walnut and Front Streets, and is still a grand home. His tavern was on Water Street, now called Front St. in Maysville. Early letters describe him a "gracious host who sat a fine table". He had an advertisement in the 1806 Kentucky Gazette reading: Samuel January's house of entertainment at Maysville at "The Sign of the Square and Compass".
Samuel had two sons die before the age of two, William E. and Charles P. He designated a burying ground, the first burying ground of the first January family in Maysville. Legend has it that he agreed his cemetery was to be a place for the burial of any indigent so that theirs would not be a "pauper's" grave.
It was Samuel for whom January Park on Union Street in Maysville is named. Quite possible, it is for him that January Street east of Plum is named. Maysville was good to Samuel. When his will was probated on May 5, 1838, he had quite a sizable estate. He was a fair father, stipulating that all lands, houses and lots and unimproved lots be so handled by his executors so as to make shares equal for all his children, to that he had advanced to one of his sons Peter T., in the amount of $5,090.80.
A story related in the Lexington Herald on Sunday, February 17, 1929: Samuel married a sister of Humphrey Marshall, the historian. Some of his descendants were rather proud of their Marshall blood. The home of Mrs. Judge Jerry Morton, in Lexington, was built and owned by one of these early Januarys. I have an impression that it was Samuel. It was a two story house. Samuel moved to Maysville in 1805, and there built a one story house, rectangular in shape, with the side from the river open. Tradition has it that on one occasion he imbibed too much liquor and jumped out of the second story window, breaking his leg, and he swore that he would never again live in a two story house. This story was told by Judge A.M.J. Cochran, a January, at the "Ye Cakes and Yale Club".
Ky Ancestors in the Acts Approved by the Ky General Assembly, 1797-1799: Samuel January..an act for the better regulation of the town of Paris, Ky... He was a member of the Ky General Assembly from 1797-1799. Ky Ancestors.

Samuel's Obit is in the Kentucky Gazette on April 26, 1838. (Maysville).

94 GEORGE MARSHALL, b. in Henry County, Kentucky., = O. VARDEMAN. He was a farmer and a man of intelligence. He resided near Eminence, Henry County, Kentucky.

102 (d) Gen. A. W. Doniphan in a letter written to me in 1883, thus notices Mrs. Marshall and her son George:

In the fall of 1821, my mother made a visit to her only brother, Capt. Robert Smith, of Henry County, Kentucky., and I accompanied her. The mother of Martin Marshall, of Augusta, resided in the same neighborhood, and Mr. Marshall requested me to deliver her a letter. I found her a sprightly little lady about 80 years old, having no family but her servants. Like many aged persons, she declined a home with any of her children, preferring to live at the old homestead, where her husband had years before, located in the wilderness, and where he lived, died and was buried. I remained several hours--dined with her, and was delighted to answer her many questions about her favorite son and his family. At her request I called to see her son, George Marshall, who owned a good farm near the road back of my uncles. He was a stout, robust and energetic farmer, and talked fluently. Of his intelligence I was too young to judge.

Shelby County, KY Will Book 2-B, Pages 469-470
Jul 22, 1808 Peter Vardeman wrote his will and was recorded October Court 1811 Shelby County, KY -
Wife, one son, three daughters, two son-in-laws, three granddaughters mentioned in this will
He left 100 acres to his wife -land he purchased from son-in-law George Marshall.

Jesse Rice was one of the test./witnesses for this will in 1808 along with John Ford* and Jesse Rice was my 4th great grandfather.
Note: Jesse Rice and John Fore* were witnesses in 1806 in Henry County, KY to the will of William Marshall (father of his son-in-law George Marshall and son-in-law Lewis Marshall).

Peter Vardeman's will written Jul 22, 1808 - mentioned .. well beloved grand child Patty daughter of my d daughter Molly Minefre (spelling?) .. pounds in property to be paid by the Executors ... to my beloved grand children Naoma Nash and sally lancaster daughtes (daughters of?) Molly Minefee.
Question - was Mary Vardeman - actually Molly - was Molly married only once having three daughters - two of which were married before July 22, 1808??

I assume D Daughter Molly Minefre meant deceased daughter

In his Will: ... autherise my sons in laws Lewis & George Marshall together with my son Thomas Vardeman my joint executors ...

What sources are you using for the marriage of George M. Marshall (b.1767) to Naomi Vardeman.

I am descended from a George Marshall and Naomi Vardeman in Shelby County through their daughter Dorcas married to John Powell in 1815-Shelby county. George was reported to be the son of Rev. Wm. Marshall and Mary Anne Pickett, and in fact, they resided within a few miles of each other.

I have a copy of a land transfer between George and his daughter Dorcas and her husband John Powell that took place 4 January 1828 in Shelby County Kentucky. They were present in the County Clerks office because the Clerk wrote of examining Naomi in private to asure that she did freely and willingly seal and deliver the said writing.

The land was adjacent to Charles Mastersonís property (Georgeís sister Susannaís husband)
This is registered in Court Records from 1828 and I believe it is on page 50.
It is witnessed by:
Charles Marshall (brother of George)
Lindsey Powell (brother of John)

It is signed (and sealed) by George Marshall and Naoma Marshall

Dorcas and John lived on this land until the mid 1850 when they moved to Livingston County. So, my ancestors George and Naomi were alive (and probably old) in 1828 and present in Shelby County.


Your reference to the letter written by Gen. A. W. Doniphan also raises a question for me.

Caldwell County is in Western Kentucky, Shelby County is much further to the East. This letter references George Marshall (son of Elizabeth Markham Marshall) living in Shelby County in 1821. Yet George is reported to have moved to Caldwell County in 1816.

Are you able to clarify for me when George actually lived in Caldwell County? I have seen the Caldwell County will of George M Marshall, so I donít doubt that he existed.
I also have seen a George Pickett Marshall b. 1786 to William and Mary Anne Pickett Marshall through the Taylor family, so there seems to be much conflicting information about George (married to Naomi). Given the methods of record keeping and counties overlaping it is no wonder. But also, given the permanence of land records, the fact that it was very hard to move, and Rev. William died in Emenince very near the George that was visited by Gen. Donaphin in 1821, I tend to believe that my George was related to William. The Powells were well off by the day's standards and they had 13 slaves which they took to Livingston County.
I would appreciate any assistance you could give me and to be able to look at your sources so I can resolve it all in my own mind.

Sincerely,
Marsha Curran

He was a student of Transylvania University while his grand uncle, Dr. Louis Marshall, was president; afterwards entered Yale College, and graduated in 1845; attended the law department of Transylvania, and received a diploma in 1847; removed to St. Louis and entered the office of Geyer & Dayton, at that time one of the most noted law firms of the State; in 1849, opened a law office for himself, and was successful; was land attorney for the Iron Mountain railroad, and secured their right of way from St. Louis to Pilot Knob; was appointed Metropolitan Police Commissioner in St. Louis, by Gov. Jackson, in 1861, but retired on the change of State administration the same year; was again appointed Police Commissioner by Gov. Phelps in 1877, and served four years; was a Whig until the disorganization of that party, and afterwards was a Democrat. He was from his youth passionately addicted to manly field sports, and his dog, gun and fishing tackle engaged his leisure hours. He was six feet tall, and, prior to 1883, weighed 180 pounds; but in March of that year some disease of the heart prostrated him on his couch, which he never left. I visited him in 1884, and spent an hour by his bedside, enjoying his genial conversation. His wife is tall and stately, intelligent and agreeable, writes an excellent letter, and was tenderly attentive to her husband. She is the daughter of James Anderson, a wholesale merchant of Louisville, Kentucky., and Mary Anderson, an English lady of intelligence and remarkable beauty. Though of like name, they were not related.
