  • Notes 
    • Carol Getting has Isaac's birth date as 1760/1761. If so, Isaac could not have been a son of Thomas. This lead credibility that Isaac's father may have been John Marshall. This date is from pension records and has to be considered as close as we are going to get unless we find a bible record some place. The pages from the family bible were torn out on the children's births and sent with his wife's Pension papers after his death. I [Carol] have a copy of those from the National Archives.

      Carol Getting's information is as follows http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~cgetting/d2753.htm#P8387

      Lt. Isaac MARSHALL was born about 1760/61 in Virginia. He was a Methodist. He served in the Virginia Continental Army, enlisting on 22 May 1777 in the 14 VA Infantry, with Captain Peter Jones.113 He was appointed to rank of Sergeant on enlistment. Enlistment shown for 3 months in the beginning of his enlistment, later it was shown as 3 years. July, 1778 when he was exchanged he enlisted for the duration of the War. His rate of pay was in the beginning 2Ła month, or $8.00. When he was exchanged and enlisted for three years, or the duration of the war, it went to $10.00 a month or 3Ł. He was again captured in Charleston, SC and escaped. The pension of Nathan Wright, who was also captured at Charleston, mentions an escape with two men, a Taylor and a Marshall. It is thought that perhaps, Nathan Wright and Isaac Marshall, did escape together. Descendants of Isaac Marshall, may apply to Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) for membership.113

      This census records is somewhat confusing. At this time, there were
      three males (sons) under age 16 that should have been in the household.
      It would appear, that perhaps the boys were staying somewhere else, and
      there were others in the household at the time. Perhaps on a visit.
      There are always possible situations that might have been present to make
      this census correct as shown and there is always the possibility that the
      record was in error. The answer will perhaps never be known.

      by David B. Gammon. Pg. 33 #471.
      Statement by Peter Jones, a resident of Warran County, aged 76 years
      (May Ct., 1823): He served in the Revolutionary War and took command as
      Lieutenent in a company commanded by Capt. John Jones in the fall of

      Buckner(?). On January 1, 1777 he took command of a company as captain

      All his military service was performed in the line of the state of
      Virginia on the Continental establishment. He hereby states that he owns
      no land and very little property. He further states that he conveyed his
      only Negro to William Hicks in trust for Henry Fitts, March 8, 1822. His

      REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS BURIED AT SNOW CREEK
      A citizen of Sharpesburg township has furnished us with the following
      list of soldier of the revolutionary war whose bones repose in Snow Creek
      grave-yard:
      Robert Boyd, Capt. William Feimster, Capt. Joseph Sharpe, James Sharpe,
      William Sharpe, ("Lawyer Billy"), James McHargue, John McHargue, Jas.
      Callahan, Thomas Moore, Samuel Wilson, David White, Adam Laurence,
      William Hardin, Peter Claywell, James King, John King, Ned Burton,
      William Bone, Robert Dobson, Valentine Tucker.
      Isaac Marshall, William Woodsides and John Luck, also soldiers of the
      Revolution, lie buried in private burying grounds near Snow Creek.
      Of the above Peter Claywell was at the battle of Guilford Court House;

      James John and William Sharpe were in the battle of Kings' Mountain; Ned
      Burton and John Luck were at the surrender at Yorktown; John McHargue was
      wounded, captured and paroled, came home, took small-pox and died; James
      King was in the skirmish at Cowan's Ford and James Callahan was in the battle of Camden.
      There are buried at Snow Creek, also, several soldiers of the war of 1812
      and a number of Confederates, among the latter the gallant and
      distinguished Reuben P. Campbell, Colonel of the Seventh North Carolina
      regiment. The majority of the graves of these soldiers are unmarked save
      by rude stones, and the gentleman who has given us the above names and
      facts accompanies them with the patriotic suggestion that the descendants
      or other relatives of these heroes should unite and have raised in Snow
      Creek graveyard, a monument, if it be of no more costly material than
      granite, to the memory of the soldiers of these three wars who are buried
      there. We concur very heartily in the suggestion and have no doubt that
      the funds necessary for the erection of a suitable shaft could easily be
      raised if some one would but take the initiative in the matter."
