      1. SUBJECT:
      Marshall Graveyard

      2. LOCATION:
      6 miles east of Chester, Virginia, 1.8 mile northeast of Route #37.

      3. DATE:
      1743

      4. OWNERS:

      5. DESCRIPTION:

      Guarded by immense oaks whose strong boughs reach high over the surrounding forest, these two graves of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Marshall lie together, overlooking the James River.
      Next to the grave of Richard Kennon, who is buried at "The Brick House", these graves are perhaps the oldest in Chesterfield County. These two graves share the same tombstone. This is approximately three feet in height, and nearly as wide. It is not of the conventional type of tombstone, and prehaps the only one of its kind in the county, having been made of slate instead of the customary granite or marble.

      6. HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE:

      Despite its age, this tombstone is in an execllent state of preservation, and the inscription, though partly buried beneath wood's mold and dead leaves, is nevertheless very clear. This is as follows:

      1. Here lyeth the
      Body of Mr.
      ALEXANDER MARSHALL
      Who Departed this
      Life May 3, 1743
      Age 67 years.

      2. Here lyeth the
      Body of Mrs.
      ALEXANDER MARSHALL
      Wife of Mr. Alexander
      Marshall, who Departed
      this Life Feby. 9th,
      1743/4 Aged 64 years.
