An Episcopalian, a Federalist and a Whig. He was educated at Chapel Hill, N. C. He was a gentleman of unbounded hospitality, strikingly handsome and a splendid horseman. After the death of his wife, Anna Maria, he married a Miss Randolph, who raised some of his younger children, and was much beloved by the family. Mr. Jones was a farmer, and spent his life at "Vaucluse." There he lies buried, with the dust of his ancestors. The name of his first wife, Maria, is much revered, and she is said to have been exceedingly lively in her manners, and brilliant in her conversation.

236 CHARLES COATSWORTH MARSHALL, b. in Warrenton, Virginia., August 10, 1799; d. April, 1849; = November 1, 1821, JUDITH STEPTOE BALL, b. in Lancaster County, Virginia., March 21, 1805; d. in Mississippi, November 2, 1865. Mr. Marshall lived some years after his marriage in Lancaster County, Virginia. About 1830, he removed to Kentucky, and spent a few years in Fleming County, near his brother Martin. He then went to "Woodburn," on the Ohio, in Lewis County, and farmed and kept a woodyard. About 1847, the family removed to Mississippi, near Charleston. In 1849, he paid a visit to Kentucky and Virginia, and, on his return, he was taken with cholera at Memphis, and there died. He was buried at Memphis, and a handsome stone attests his grave. I remember Cousin Charles as a tall and handsome gentleman. On one occasion I visited his family, when they resided in Fleming. Mrs. Marshall survived her husband, and died at Charleston. She was a daughter of the distinguished William L. Ball, of Lancaster County, Virginia., who represented his district in Congress for four consecutive terms, and died in office, February 28, 1824. Her mother was Mary Pierce

238 ALEXANDER J. MARSHALL, b. at Warrenton, Virginia., February 21, 1803; d. at Baltimore, February 21, 1882; buried in Warrenton; = 1st, December 6, 1827, MARIA R. TAYLOR, b. November 30, 1808; d. January 8, 1844; = 2d, Anne ROBB, who yet lives in Warrenton. Mr. Marshall was a lawyer of fine promise in early life, but ceased to practice on his election as Clerk of Fauquier. He filled this place for years. During the war he was in the Confederate State Senate. After the war he removed to Baltimore, where he died. The first Mrs. Marshall was a daughter of Robert Johnstone Taylor, an eminent lawyer of Alexandria, Virginia. The second wife was a daughter of Charles Gartz Robb and Sarah G. McGlenachan, of Warrenton. Mr. Marshall was a learned and polite gentleman,--an agreeable companion,--of fine conversational powers, and sober, yet festive in his habits. His great heart and open hand wasted his estate, and left him in humble circumstances. His wit and fund of anecdotes made him agreeable and popular.

244 (a) MARIA MARSHALL, b. at "Walnut Grove," Mason County, Kentucky., July 20, 1795; d. in Columbus, O., February 6, 1824; = May 2, 1811, JAMES A. PAXTON, b. in Rockbridge County, Virginia., September 13, 1788; d. in Washington, Kentucky., October 23, 1825. My mother died when I was but four years old; yet I remember ome of the circumstances, and can recall the sad pageant of her burial. She was buried in the Franklinton Cemetery, but, a few years ago, we had her dust removed to the Columbus Cemetery, and laid beside her sister, Mrs. Sullivant. We erected a neat monument, to preserve her memory. I have often heard my mother praised for her lovely yet fragile form, and for her amiable disposition. Her house was the home of her relatives. She inherited from the McDowell's sweetness, modesty and purity, and from the Marshalls intelligence, vivacity and spirit.

248 CHARLES THOMAS MARSHALL, (known as Black Dan), b. at "Walnut Grove," Mason County, Kentucky., July 14, 1800; d. at his home, near Lewisburg, Kentucky., March 5, 1846, = 1827, JANE LOVE LUKE, b. April 16, 1808; d. July 5, 1876. Uncle Charles was a sensible and agreeable gentleman, and a skillful and successful farmer. He was domestic in his habits and his delight was in the privacy of his happy home and the society of his family. He cultivated a large farm, and transmitted a fine estate to his children. He did not trouble himself about politics, and had no ambition for office. Aunt Jane was his step-sister, daughter of his father's second wife. Aunt Jane was an intelligent and accomplished lady, and like Solomon's "virtuous woman" devoted her attention to her prosperous household. I do not now remember having ever met her away from her home. Uncle Charles was my guardian, and I could not have had a better one. He charged no commission for his services. His will grants all his property to his widow, and, at her death, to be divided among his children.

250 JAMES KEITH MARSHALL, b. at "Walnut Grove," Mason County, Kentucky., March 2, 1802; d. July 4, 1866; = 1827 CATHERINE CALLOWAY HICKMAN, b. Jan. 12, 1812; yet living in Louisville, Kentucky. Uncle James was six feet three inches tall, and was called "Long James," to distinguish him from a cousin of the same name. When I saw him last, about 1864, he weighed about 225 pounds, and was as handsome an old gentleman as I ever met. His urbane manners and interesting conversation greatly attracted me. He studied law in Columbus, with my father, but never practiced. His father granted his two sons, James and Samuel, their shares of his property undivided, and by deed provided that the survivor should take the whole. Upon the death of Samuel, Uncle James, therefore, took a double portion. After marriage, he spent a short time in Paris, and then removed to his fine estate on Mill Creek, in Mason County. Here he built a fine house, and lived until about 1836, when he returned to Paris, and engaged in milling and other pursuits. But his large estate melted away through improvidence and the gaming table. In 1852 he found himself impoverished, and removed with his family, to Milwaukee. But finding himself rather a burden than a support to his family, he left them, returned to Kentucky and taught school for a support on the property he once owned. Honest and generous to a fault, he wronged no one but himself and family. His children are intelligent and capable, and will rise from their embarrassments. Aunt Catherine was regarded as one of the most beautiful women of Kentucky, and her children are remarkable for the same quality. She is now old and embecile. Her daughter, Kate, takes care of her. I visited her in 1884, and found her body and mind were a wreck, and her voice was scarcely audible. She is the daughter of John L. Hickman and Mary Calloway, of Bourbon County, Kentucky. It is fortunate that she has in her old age, children whose care and affection can sustain her. May God bless them.

252 SAMUEL M. MARSHALL, b. at "Walnut Grove," Mason County, Kentucky., July 19, 1804; d. at sea, 1824. He was educated for the navy, and died of yellow fever while on a cruise. His patrimony being in joint tenancy with his brother James, the latter inherited a double portion of his father's estate

254 (a) JANE MARSHALL, b. at "Walnut Grove," Mason County, Kentucky., January 7, 1808; d. in Franklinton, Ohio, January 7, 1825, = in Columbus, Ohio, April 7, 1824, WILLIAM STARLING SULLIVANT, b. January 15, 1803; d. in Columbus, April 30, 1873. Aunt Jane was a delicate, pure, fair and lovely girl. She went with my mother to Columbus, was married and lived in Franklinton. Seventeen days after the birth of her first and only child, the fragile flower was crushed; but the fragrance of her memory still cheers many hearts. The child -- as sweet and seraphic as her mother-- yet lives to honor and adorn the name that both bore.

William S. Sullivant was educated at Ohio University, and finished his literary course at Yale College. As a classical and scientific scholar, he had few superiors. The degree of L.L.D. was conferred on him by Kenyon College. In the department of Botany, he was a proficient. The study of this science was his lifework, and the numerous dissertations published by him testify to his diligence and ability. He was handsome, dignified and courteous; took an active part in the educational enterprises of his times, and by his public spirit and munificence, did much to advance the material interests of Columbus. As the husband of my aunt, I often visited his house in my boyhood, and venerated him as a scholar, financier, scientist and gentleman.

Mr. Sullivant was three times married, and his brother Joseph, now dead, in 1874, published a "Family Memorial," which is a treasure-house of heraldic lore, and an imperishable monument to many distinguished families. On its classic pages and ancient records I have often drawn.

258 WILLIAM LOUIS MARSHALL, b. at Buckpond, Woodford County, Kentucky., September 26, 1803; d. in California, October 5, 1869; = 1825, Anne K. LEE, b. in Va., about 1806, d. in Baltimore, February 20, 1864. After receiving instruction at his father's private school, Mr. Marshall spent several years with his Aunt Trigg, near Frankfort, Kentucky. Visiting Virginia, he married Ann, daughter of Gen. Henry Lee, (Lighthorse Harry) and settled in Baltimore, first as a preacher, and then as a lawyer; was Chancellor of the city; United States District Attorney; was regarded as one of the most able jurists of the day; was a Republican in politics. After his wife's death in 1864, he removed to Missouri, and purchased a farm near Wakesha; after a few years, removed to California, and purchased a ranche, where he died. Mrs. Bullitt, (900) his niece spent several years with him in Baltimore, and pronounces him the most intellectual, as well as the most moral and unimpeachable member of the family.

262 JOHN CAMPBELL MARSHALL, b. at "Buckpond," Woodford County, Kentucky., about 1813; = REBECCA WOOD, of Ohio. Both yet live on a farm in the vicinity of Independence, Mo. Cousin John lived with his father until about 1857. I knew him well in his early manhood. Like his father he liked to visit around among his relatives. He was a plain, sensible and agreeable man, devoid of ambition; and was regarded as an old bachelor from his boyhood. But, that he might have a home, he actually got married. When I was at Danville in 1836-38, he paid us several visits. He had just enough of life in him to make us a pleasant companion at the fireside. I sometimes hear of the old gentleman at Independence, but he wont reply to my letters. He is one of the eight grandchildren of Col. Thomas Marshall, yet living.

298 JUDGE THOMAS ALEXANDER MARSHALL, L. L. D., b. in Woodford County, Kentucky., January 15, 1794; d. in Louisville, Kentucky., April 17, 1871; buried in Lexington, = November 26, 1816, ELIZA PRICE, b. May 1, 1795; d. November 17, 1875; buried beside her husband. He graduated at Yale College, 1815, commenced the practice of law in Frankfort, Kentucky.; removed to Paris, 1819; removed to Lexington, 1835; removed to Frankfort, 1857, and to Louisville, 1859. He was in Congress from the Paris district, from 1831 to 1835; Supreme Judge of Kentucky, 1835 to 1856; and again in 1866; was on the bench of the Court of Appeals twenty-one years, and twice Chief Justice of that Court; represented Bourbon County in the Legislature, 1827 and 1828, and represented the City of Louisville, 1863, 1864 and 1865; was professor of law in Transylvania University, 1836 to 1849; celebrated his golden wedding, 1866, in Louisville; twenty-four volumes of Kentucky Reports attest his legal attainments. I heard a distinguished jurist remark that his decisions on Aquatic rights alone would form a treatise superior to any text book on the subject. His kinsman, Judge James P. Harbeson, was associated with him for years, and remarked to me that "He was a Christian gentleman; a classical scholar; an erudite jurist, and, altogether, the greatest and best man I ever knew."

Mrs. Marshall was said to have been the most lovely woman in Kentucky. She was a grand-daughter of Col. Thomas Hart, and a niece of Henry Clay. In 1883, I visited the family tomb, which stands in the Lexington cemetery, under the shadow of the magnificent monument of Kentucky's favorite son. Names and dates are the epitaphs of the family.

In 1833, he received the degree of M. D. of the University of Pennsylvania, and practiced in Washington, Kentucky., in partnership with his uncle Dr. W. Thornton Taliaferro. In 1843 he removed to Cincinnati, and entered on a large practice. In 1846 he was happily married and seven children were born to him, only two of whom survive. In 1853 he was elected to a chair in the Ohio Medical College, at Cincinnati, and for four years found pleasure in the duties of his station. An intense student, he had qualified himself for distinction, not only in his profession, but in other departments of a liberal education. The medical science was his delight, and his lectures were interesting as well as learned. He was wedded to his profession, and he did not marry until he was thirty-six years of age. I knew "Cousin Nic." well, and often took his prescriptions in my boyhood. Every one loved and trusted him. He was one of the finest talkers I ever listened to. His health in 1857 broke down, and he retired with his family to the home of his wife's grandfather, Gen. Soward, in Minerva, Kentucky., where he died suddenly from apoplexy. The members of the profession in Cincinnati and Covington passed highly complimentary resolutions on the occasion. His will is recorded in Maysville, Kentucky.; is dated November 14, 1853, probated August 9, 1858, and grants all his property to his widow, whom he appoints guardian of his children.

366 THOMAS ALEXANDER MARSHALL, b. in Augusta, Kentucky., March 29, 1812, = March 5, 1844, LETITIA MILLER, b. February 19, 1844. Both are living in Vicksburg, Miss. He was educated at Augusta College; studied law with his father; settled in early life in Vicksburg, Miss., and enjoyed for many years a large practice; with his relative, W. C. Smedes, he compiled Smedes and Marshall's Mississippi Reports. His wife was a daughter of Capt. Anderson Miller, a celebrated steamboat captain and Marshal of the Southern District of Mississippi. For eleven years he has been afflicted with rheumatism, and for the last five years he has been unable to leave his bed. By paying security debts, and through the disasters of the war, he lost a fortune; but by energy and talent he has regained a competency.

She was born at the old Marshall homestead in Augusta, and still lives there. I met her in 1884, and found her a sensible and agreeable lady, much interested in giving her children a good start in the world. Mr. Armstrong was a son of William Armstrong and Sallie Lee; born at West Union, Ohio; educated at Augusta College; studied law with Martin Marshall; graduated at Transylvania Law School; practiced law for a time; opened a store at Augusta, and continued in the mercantile business the rest of his life. He was a stout man of robust health, and died suddenly of a congestive chill. He was highly esteemed for his intelligence, energy and public spirit

52 (a) ELIZABETH (ELIZA) MARSHALL, b. near Germantown in Fauquier County, Virginia., 1756, d. at "Honeywood," Berkeley County, Virginia., in 1842; = October 15, 1785, RAWLEIGH COLSTON, b. May 10, 1749, d. at "Honeywood," Va., 1823. Aunt Colston was the oldest daughter of the family of Col. Marshall, and received her education chiefly from her father. She, in turn, became the teacher of her younger brothers and sisters, and they ever regarded her with deep veneration. Her father in his will (16) makes a special bequest to her, as an expression of his gratitude for her self sacrificing labors for his younger children. In early life she was engaged in marriage to Col. Porterfield, a gallant officer of the Revolutionary army. When he fell in battle, she was sorely distressed, and for years seldom entered into society. This event gave a tinge of pious sadness to the remainder of her life. Her hours of meditation and reading were interpersed with the duties of instructing the younger members of the family. Nature had endowed her with superior mental qualifications, and her diligent study of the best authors of the day, made her a highly accomplished lady. At the age of twenty-seven she was married to the wealthy and accomplished Rawleigh Colston, at the house of her brother John, in Richmond. He died, in 1823, and she survived him nearly twenty years. She continued to reside at Honeywood until her death in 1842. I believe that she never visited Kentucky. Her memory is fragrant in the hearts of all who share her blood. The following obituary notice appeared immediately after her death:

Died at Honeywood, in the County of Berkeley, Virginia., on Friday, the 24th inst., Mrs. Elizabeth Colston, relict of Rawleigh Colston, Esq., in the 86th year of her age. This lady was the eldest sister of the late Chief Justice Marshall, whom she strongly resembled in many respects, particularly in the directness and perfect simplicity of her character. Of uncommonly clear and vigorous mind, she used every faculty, not to magnify herself, but to humbly direct her to the proper discharge of every social and moral duty. As a wife, parent, mistress, relation, neighbor and friend, she attracted the esteem and love of all who

Mr. Marshall was educated at the University of Virginia; farmed at "Mt. Blanc," his patrimonial estate, until the war. In the fall of 1861 he entered Ashby's cavalry as adjutant; resigned after Ashby's death, but, after remaining idle for a few months, he joined Mosby's command of scouts, or irregular troops, and did good service until the end of the war. He then returned home and managed his farm successfully until his death. He was at the battles of Kernstown, Winchester, Cedar Mountain, second Manassas, and other bloody fields. I met Mrs. Marshall at "Mt. Blanc," in 1884, and have received several well written letters from her. She is possessed of not only intelligence, but independence, energy and firmness. She rules her household, educates her children, manages her farm and attends to her business affairs with diligence and success. Mr. Marshall was her third cousin. See No. 734.

Mrs. Douthat's postoffice is Weyanoke Wharf, Charles-City County, Virginia. For Mr. Donthat's ancestry, see No. 150 j. During the Mexican war Mr. Douthat was employed as Captain's Clerk on the Steamer "Mary," and cruised on the gulf. He then took charge of his farm in Charles-City County, and engaged in agriculture until the war of 1861, when he joined the cavalry company raised in his county and went to the Peninsula. At a later date he had charge of the Artillery at Mulberry Island. Near the close of the war he was taken prisoner and confined at Point Lookout until the surrender. See 550 j.

590 COURTENAY NORTON MARSHALL, b. at Carrington, Fauquier County, Virginia., February 15, 1847, = December 5, 1866, her second cousin, THOMAS MARSHALL, (736), b. at "Fairfield," Fauquier County, Virginia., August 29, 1842. Cousin Courtenay is as sweet as her name. It is not beauty that makes her interesting, but her modest and respectful demeanor and her soul speaking eyes. One would select her out of a thousand strangers, and claim her as a long lost sister. When I visited "Innis," in 1884, I felt at home before I was seated. The family knows how to make one feel welcome. Mr. Marshall is a pleasant and sensible gentleman, modest, unassuming and social. He received instruction from tutors at home, and was sent successively to Clifton High School, Mr. Harrison's school, and Charlottesville Military Institute. When a mere youth he entered Ashby's Cavalry, and fought through the war; was wounded in the fight in the Wilderness, by a ball that struck his forehead and glanced off without breaking the skull. It is almost a miracle that he was not killed, and the boys jestingly say that the ball was flattened to the thickness of a knife blade. His duties during the war were assigned him chiefly in the adjutant's office, for which position he was well qualified. Cousin Tom is a genial and generous friend. I owe him for the use of a horse while in Fauquier.

60 JUDITH MARSHALL, b. in Fauquier County, about 1766; = about 1783, GEORGE BROOKE. Aunt Judith married against the advice of her parents, yet she does not seem to have been cast off by them. Her father in his will, gives her a full share of his property. The will is dated June 26, 1798, and the Brooke family were then perhaps, living in Lewis County, Kentucky. Here they spent their latter years. Mrs. Brooke is said to have been a beautiful and lively girl. Mr. Brooke is described as a fine gentleman, of prepossessing person and fascinating manners, but dissipated, idle and profligate. After marriage they had but little intercourse with the rest of the family. When they died, or, specifically, where, I have not learned. Some of the children were left in Kentucky, and others in Virginia. There were seven children. Three of the boys never married. Mary left quite a household of children, and her posterity are numerous. My chart shows a large part of her descendants. Mrs. Nat Whiting of Prince William County, Virginia., was a sister of George Brooke. Another sister, Kitty, = a Conrad. George Brooke belonged to the large and worthy Brooke family of Virginia, but I have not been able to trace the connection.

626 EMILY MARSHALL, b. in Lewis County, Kentucky., November 8, 1821, d. September 18, 1859, = December 19, 1844, CHARLES M. FLEMING. Cousin Emily and I were children together. She was an amiable, slender and beautiful girl. I never met her after her marriage. She was educated and refined, and was generally beloved. Mr. Fleming lived a few miles from Flemingsburg. Educated for law, he has spent his life on his farm. He has married again.

628 FANNIE ANNE MARSHALL, b. in Lewis County, Kentucky., Jan. 9, 1825; d. in Mason County, Kentucky., April 29, 1863, = September 9, 1845, DR. ADDISON DIMMITT, of Mason County, Kentucky., b. May 4, 1822, d. March 30, 1865. Cousin Fannie was a pure and true little woman, but exceedingly nervous and irritable. Shortly after her marriage she united with the Lewisburg Baptist church, under the preaching of Elder Gilbert Mason; and she continued a zealous and useful member until her death. She was brilliant in conversation, passionate in her temper, and indomitable in her will. Her heart was full of sympathy, and her hand was liberal in alms. Her children almost idolize her memory, and all who enjoyed her friendship praise her. Her feelings were never concealed. In the war she was enthusiastic for the South.

NOAH GRANT, b. in Maysville, Kentucky., April 1, 1824, d. in New Orleans, October 4, 1867, of yellow fever. He was a farmer until the war broke out; entered the Confederate service and rose to the rank of Major; went to New Orleans when peace returned, and was a member of the house of Jewett Norton & Co. Cousin Eliza now lives at Canton, Mo., and is sorely afflicted with cancer in the breast. I knew her only as a child, but have often heard her praised.

BENJ. BLAND, of New Orleans, b. in Maysville, Kentucky., October 2, 1821, d. June 24, 1864. Cousin Julianna possessed beauty and intelligence; was firm, resolute and determined; of strong sympathies and aversions. I have several finely written letters from her, from which, in the notice of her father, I have quoted (176). Capt. Bland's grandfather was a Virginian, who married Margaret Jones. His parents were Benj-Bland, sr., and Mary Rolfe. Capt. Bland served the Confederacy under Gen. Kirby Smith

634 FRANCIS MARSHALL, b. in Mason County, Kentucky., March 7, 1819. d. February 25, 1840, = 1838, FRANK T. CHAMBERS, 1818--60. Cousin Fannie was a fair and lovely girl. From the age of fifteen she suffered from dyspepsia, which made her form and features angelic. She was only five days younger than I. As I received the fostering care of her mother, so she was cherished by my step-mother. Therefore we were companions throughout our early lives. She died soon after marriage, leaving an only son. Frank Chambers was a lawyer, and was regarded as one of the most promising young men in the State of Kentucky. He was uncommonly handsome, a chaste and eloquent speaker, and an intelligent and interesting companion. His life was short, yet he was married three times. His second wife was ELIZABETH DURRETT, and his third, a MISS FELEGAR. His last years were spent in Cincinnati. He became intemperate before he died. His parents were Gov. John Chambers, 1779--1852, and Hannah Taylor.

B. F. Marshall Louisville, KY born ca-1820
Author: Barry Schwoerer Date: 12 Jun 2006 8:14 PM GMT
Classification: Query

B.F. Marshall (Benjamin Franklin) was elected constable of Murphys California in 1850 and appointed sheriff of Calaveras County, CA in 1851. Prior to this he served in the US Army during the Mexican War and reportedly may have been a Deputy US Marshall. He was born in Louisville, KY ca-1820 although various census reports vary the birth date +/- several years.

B.F Marshall's son, Frank B. Marshall collected newsclips of the Marshall family and included one that reported COL Charles Marshall, Aide to GEN Robert E. Lee, wrote Lee's farewell address to troops and the original was found in Charles effects in Louisville, KY. That raises the possibility that Charles and BF were related.

I'm looking for any information on birth parents of B.F Marshall and any relation to COL Charles Marshall, any history proving or disproving the US Marshall work and any history of the family beyond birth parents.

648 THOMAS MARSHALL GREEN, b. at "Waveland," near Danville, Kentucky., March 12, 1837, = April 27, 1860, ANNE E. BUTLER, b. July 20, 1840, d. June 11, 1881; = 2d, April 17, 1883, PATTIE E. CRAIG, b. April 7, 1839, in Lincoln County, Kentucky. They now live at "Anchorage," Maysville, Kentucky., and he edits the Maysville Eagle. Col. Green has been hard of hearing since his infancy. His native talents, superior education, sound practical judgment, extensive reading and almost universal information, with fearless independence and sacred regard for truth, give him a wonderful power and influence. His respect for justice and honor, and the calls of friendship and patriotism, have often led him into controversy, and in every contest he has proved himself an intellectual giant. During the war, his fearless denunciation of every wrong, and his intrepid advocacy of what was right, were only equalled by the success with which he was rewarded. He was a decided Union man, and freely expressed his convictions, whether they suited those in power or not. Though a Democrat and an editor, he has always thought for himself. He cares not for the party lash, but sustains the cause and the candidate he approves. Familiar with the history of Kentucky, and with the lives, principles and lineages of the leading men of his State, his positions are generally impregnable, and his facts irresistable. But deafness curbs his ambition -- drives him from the stump and the forum -- and leaves him his pen as his only weapon. As an essayist, he is equalled by few. His style is chaste, his diction clear and his logic powerful. He masters every subject he touches, and few have the temerity to contradict him.

Mr. Green was educated at Center College, edited the Frankfort Commonwealth, 1857-60; has since edited the Maysville Eagle; ran as a Union man for Congress in 1866; and in 1868, was chosen an elector for Seymour. See Green Chart, 180 j.

Both were my associates in early life, but upon their marriage we were separated to meet no more. After Mr. Maltby's literary education, he studied law at Utica, N. Y. About 1827, he came to Fleming County, Kentucky., and became a tutor in the family of Martin P. Marshall (234). In 1839, he entered on the practice of law in Vicksburg, Miss., in partnership with N. D. Coleman (184). In 1840, he purchased an interest in the wholesale grocery house of Paxton & Keys. Until 1859, Mr. Maltby continued the traveling and purchasing partner of his Cincinnati house, residing at times in New Orleans and elsewhere. He then sold out, and removed to Northampton, Mass. Here in 1865, he assumed control of a Savings' Bank, whose deposits now amount, under his judicious management, to over $2,000,000. He is a moderate Republican, and voted for Cleveland. He is a man of thought, judgment, spirit and ambition. He belongs to the Congregational Church. His health is failing

Mr. Marshall has spent his life in the house where he was born. When his father left "Belle Grove," Charles purchased the estate, which consists of eleven hundred acres. He started a dairy, and did a large business in cheese, shipping it, in great quantities to the South. The war broke up his business, and he has since been rearing stock. He is a pushing, thriving farmer, rough and boisterous in his manner, and overbearing in his conduct; but his sound judgment and integrity are undoubted. He is growing in wealth and influence yearly. Mrs. Marshall is a worthy matron, of superior education and native grace and purity.

Mr. Ambler was born and reared in Jamestown, and inherited a large estate. He was finely educated, and was eminently a gentleman. His first wife was Fannie Armistead. She bore him a son, Edward, 1783, and Mary Cary Ambler, 1787 -- 1843. His first wife died in 1787, and in 1790 he married Lucy Marshall, by whom he had one son, Thomas Marshall Ambler (242). Lucy died in 1795. Her death was the first and only one of the family that Col. Marshall was called on to mourn. Read his letter written on the occasion (16 e.). Her early death cast a pall of sorrow over the whole family. "Lucy" has become a favorite family name, and attests her loveliness. For many years her name was seldom spoken without a sigh or a tear. Mr. John Ambler afterwards removed to Richmond, Virginia., and married Mrs. Catherine Norton, nee Bush, and raised a large family of children. For his genealogy see the Ambler chart, No. 50 n.

Cousin Lizzie is a sensible, amiable and domestic lady, and superintends her large household with diligence and economy. Mr. Durrett was well educated, and is a prominent citizen of Mason County, Kentucky. He is a successful farmer, residing one mile west of Washington, Kentucky. He is a son of the late Paul Durrett, of Mason County. The Durretts are of the lineage of Col.

Cousin Sue is a handsome, intelligent and spirited lady. She lives at the old homestead in Washington, Kentucky., with her daughter. By her father's will she has a large part of the home tract of land. Mr. Massie was a son of the late Nathaniel Massie, a pioneer from Virginia, who was born December 28, 1763; Governor of Ohio in 1807. Nathaniel, jr., was born in Chillicothe, Ohio; volunteered as a private in the Union army; was discharged on account of protracted sickness, which finally resulted in death.

68 (a) ALEXANDER KEITH MARSHALL, b. at "Oakhill," Fauquier County, Virginia., 1770; d. at "Walnut Grove," Mason County, Kentucky., February 7, 1825, = 1st, October 10, 1794, at Danville, Kentucky., MARY MCDOWELL, b. January 11, 1772; died at the house of James A. Paxton, Washington, Kentucky., January 27, 1822; = 2d, November 3, 1823, Mrs. ELIZA A. BALL, nee Lewis, who died July, 1829.

Mr. Marshall came to Kentucky with his father, on his second trip in 1785. Under the tuition of his accomplished sisters, he received at home the classical education for which the Marshalls were remarkable, and breathed the literary atmosphere that enveloped "Oakhill" and "Buckpond." After marriage, Mr. Marshall removed to Mason County, Kentucky., and on the farm now known as "Walnut Grove," erected the quaint brick house which is still owned by his posterity. The locust and walnut groves he cherished have nearly disappeared; but the old-fashioned building, with its high stone steps, double doors, round front windows, and antique carvings, still stands, and will yet for generations resist the encroachments of time. Here Mr. Marshall spent his life, and here he and his first wife are buried.

A. K. MARSHALL.

The will had no witnesses, but was in his handwriting. It is dated October 28, 1824, and probated at the April term, 1825.

(c) Mrs. Mary Marshall, the first wife of A. K. Marshall, was a McDowell, and like all of the name, possessed both beauty and loveliness. Her purity of heart, sweet disposition and Christian graces, made her an universal favorite. She was so much beloved by her nephews and neices, that she was known as their "angel aunt." She inherited the Presbyterian faith from her Scotch-Irish ancestors, and became one of the founders of the Washington Church. See the chart of the McDowells appended to this article.

Mrs. Eliza A. Ball was a Lewis. Her first husband was John Luke, of Alexandria, Virginia., by whom she had several children. Her second husband was a Ball, who left one child, Spencer Ball, whose life was spent on the Mississippi river, in the steamboat trade.

682 MARIA MARSHALL, b. October 18, 1836; d. December 24, 1862. She was an angel sent on a mission of love. Devoid of selfishness, her pleasure was to make others happy. Without a particle of guile herself, she believed all around her were good. Too pure and lovely for earth, she was translated, like Enoch, to receive her reward without delay.

686 LIZZIE C. MARSHALL, b. at "Walnut Grove," Mason County, Kentucky., July 27, 1841, = October 12, 1871, REV. MAURICE WALLER, b. at Maysville, Kentucky., April 7, 1840. Lizzie is a tall, handsome and accomplished lady. Her letters to me show the ability and style of one highly accomplished. Rev. Mr. Waller had his
literary education at Center College, Kentucky, and was graduated in 1864, at the Theological Seminary of the Northwest, at Chicago. On account of ill health, he did not preach for several years. From 1867 to 1872, he preached to the Presbyterian Church at Hancock, Ind. From 1872 to 1878, he was pastor of the church at Petersburg, Ill. From 1878 to 1880, he preached at Helena, Ark. He became in 1880, pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Manchester, Ohio, where he is now preaching. As an earnest and successful preacher -- as a learned theologian, and as an able eclesiastic, he stands high with his brethren. Mr. Waller is a son of Hon. Henry Waller, of Chicago, and Sarah Bell Langhorne, who were married May 3, 1837. Mrs. S. B. Waller died in 1883, in Chicago. See the Langhorne tree, 1012.

Mr. John Bentley, Jr., was preparing for college when the war broke out; entered the Confederate army, and served to the close; entered Roanoke College; graduated the first in his class, and received the degree of A. M., the highest honor conferred by the college; the Greek oration delivered by him on the occasion is still preserved; came to Kentucky and opened a High School at Washington, Kentucky. After marriage he started a grocery house, in Maysville, Kentucky., and is doing well.

694 SALLIE HUGHES MARSHALL, b. at "Walnut Grove," near Washington, Kentucky., November 24, 1858, = June 17, 1885, EDMOND WILKES, Jr. Sallie is tall, handsome, lively and accomplished. She has been the life and soul of the family. But ah! This 17th of June, 1885, as I write, she kneels at the altar of Hymen, garlanded in myrtle and orange-blossoms, a willing victim to Cupid. I pray that their journey may be through Beulah's land, and may end in the New Jerusalem. 
Marshall, Sallie Hughes (I004846)
