      202 SUSAN MARSHALL, b. at "Happy Creek," Warren County, Virginia., October 11, 1812; = June 8, 1843, DR. RICHARD CARY AMBLER, b. November 8, 1810, d. July 16, 1877. Cousin Susan Ambler, with her unmarried children, lives at "The Dell," six miles southwest of Markham, Virginia. "The Dell" is an estate of 3,100 acres of timbered land and pasture. She has other landed estates, and enjoys a large income. I visited her in 1884, and found a hale, handsome and dignified matron; hospitable, generous, intelligent and reserved; altogether, she is a grand old lady. A friend writes me: "She is one of the most elegant women I ever knew. Her trials and sorrors have only served to enhance the beauties of her character."

      After receiving a liberal education and studying medicine at Paris, Dr. Ambler settled in Richmond, Virginia., and practiced successfully for some years. After his marriage he returned to "The Dell," and while superintending his large estate, became an amatuer in history, science and philosophy. He read extensively and became a proficient in literature and art. He enjoyed the esteem of all who knew him, and was revered for his learning and medical skill. His monument is found in the Leeds church-yard. The inscription reads: "Richard Cary Ambler, third son of John Ambler and Katherine (nee) Bush, his wife, born November 8, 1810; died July 16, 1877." I am indebted to him chiefly for the Ambler Chart, found No. 50 o.
