      My Marshall Family of Glasgow, if these connections are right, are descended from Thomas Marshall III (b. 1570) of Hampshire, EN, and Mary Fitzgerald of County Kerry, IRE. This connects me to the fourth generation of family group 5 of kit 34866 on the rootsweb page. My records indicate that Thomas is my 11th Great Grandfather.

      also related to Robert William Marshall Jr. who has a Haplogroup: R-M512 and 67 markers and a genetic distance of 2

      I am writing a book about pioneer surveyors in Kentucky. Alexander, James and Robert Parker were surveying in Kentucky prior to 1800. I would appreciate any information you may have about this man that could be added to the book. I am not ordinarily interested in purely geneological facts, but rather want to know about education, accomplishments, events in their lives, accomplishments by their family members or friends. Please send your comments directly to my e-mail: bud.salyer@mail.state.ky.us.

      =========================
      In 1790, the gateway to the west was Pittsburgh, a thriving town of 400 homes with an industrial base. People arrived via Forbes' Road and Braddock's Road. At Pittsburgh, flatboats were built for travel as far as the falls of the Ohio (Louisville). At the destination, the flatboats were taken apart and used for building shelters. During the dry season, the Ohio River was often too low from Pittsburgh to Wheeling for the flatboats. As a consequence, Wheeling grew in importance as the point of departure down the Ohio. To reach Wheeling, an extension of Braddock's Road was created to go directly to Wheeling, bypassing Pittsburgh. In 1796, Ebenezer Zane agreed to construct a road from Wheeling to Zanesville, in Ohio, and then south to Maysville on the Ohio River. Already there was a road from Lexington up Maysville.
