      I just saw your query at the USGenWeb site for Boone County, regarding
      the Hedges and Marshall's I am also researching Marshall's in Boone
      County, Kentucky One of them is my ancestor, James W. Marshall of
      Richwood (He is the head of the Marshall family mentioned in the "Modern
      Medea" book mentioned by the Grubbs in their reply to one of your
      postings). Philip A. Naff [philnaff@indy dot net] Mon 03/15/1999 (317)547-3157

      You may want to check the book "Modern Medea," by Steven Weisenburger 1998, which you can find a copy of at the library or Barnes and Noble. There is quite a bit of discussion on the Marshall (James) family, in connection with the family of Archibald Gaines in Boone Co. This is the Marshall that lived near the Richwood Presbyterian church and is mentioned in the book "Modern Medea".

      My information, however, is that Ryland Dillard Hedges' wife is a daughter of my great-great-grandfather, James W. Marshall, and not of James Marshall and Margaret Eleanor. The Hedges have been long known to be cousins of my mother's family (it is through her that I claim descent from James W. Marshall

      On Jan 28, 1856, five members of the Simon Garner slave family escaped
      from Richwood Station Farms owned by James Marshall and Archibald Gaines.
      The group included Simon's parents, Simon and Mary, and from the Gaines
      farm, his wife Margaret 23 and her four children, Silla, a nine month old
      boy, Mary 3, Samuel 5, and Thomas 6 -----------
      -------" . (This was the group that was caught in Cincinnati after they
      escaped through Covington KY) "Early in the morning, Gaines, with neighbor
      Major Murphy, William Marshall- the son of the Garners owner, and other
      Kentuckian's came looking for the Garner family----------Realizing that
      escape was futile and rather than see her children return to slavery,
      Margaret Garner grabbed a butcher knife and nearly decapitated her
      daughter, then slashed at the other three, begging her mother to help as
      the older boys struggled for their lives". At Margaret's Trial, "John W
      Finnell, who represented the slave owners, said state lines were
      immaterial, the laws of the Union overrode them". " The 14 day trial was
      reported in newspapers across the nation, William marshall 19, who grew up
      with the younger Simon on his fathers farm, said he considered him " more
      of a companion than a slave, If money can save him from the effect of any
      rash act he has committed, I am willing to give it in any amount" The
      aforementioned event was recently portrayed in a made for TV movie starring
      Oprah Winfrey. Robert Lockbaum [block@cmc dot net] Sun 02/21/1999

      A few years back I made up an index to the Boone County portion of that
      1883 atlas. I entered each name as many times as it appeared in the
      atlas, and so some individuals may appear more than once.

      21 Boone Walton Pct. Marshall, A. [Austin]
      21 Boone Walton Pct. Marshall, Jas.
      21 Boone Walton Pct. Marshall, Mrs. (George Scales)
      21 Boone Walton Pct. Marshall, T.W.

      I thought this might be of some help to you. As far as I know, only the entries for "Jas." and "Thos." of the Walton Pct. refer to any of the descendants of my James W. Marshall. I don't know who the "Mrs. Marshall" would be.
      =======================
      James and Julian Marshall of Clark County married in 1826. James & JuliAnne Marshall of Boone County had a child (their oldest) who was born a few years after the 1826 marriage date (the 1840 U.S. Census also seems to substantiate this, but there is room for error, as it is difficult to determine in that year whether one was a member of the family or just the household in general).

      Land book D pg 269, Oct 10, 1818; Joseph H. Marshall for 537.50 paid by Benjamin Fowler for a negro slave girl by the name of Matilda 13yrs old

      The Joseph H Marshall (of Boone Co) Land deed book G to James Marshall (of Clark co.), page 317 (7 Feb 1828) for $300 dollars, 100 acres of land on the waters of Gunpowder near the North line of Willoughley Tibles and Thomas Youngs original survey of 15,000 acres. Bounded Lynn corner of William Brown. Joseph appears to have gotten this land in 1823 according to Deed Book F page 51/52 for one dollar. The heirs of George Lampkin (decd), Thomas Lindsey, Robert Lindsey, Opie Lindsey and William Lindsey were entitled to 575 acres of land. William sold his interest to Joseph with Thomas Lindsey acting as agent. The stipulation being that if a further re-division is made the 100 acres that Joseph held would revert. Maybe Joseph was a guardian of William. Is there a Lindsey or Lampkin marriage in your line? Joseph's wife was noted but her first name was not given.

      Land Book I page 70; 11nov1833 Joseph H Marshall (of Walton) to James M. Gaines. $275 for a female slave called Delila 18yrs.

      Land Book I page 255/256; Dec 14, 1833, John Boggess (boone) and James Marshall (of clark), $800 for a tract (84 acres) on Mudlick creek, and being part of a tract of 10,000 acres granted by Virginia to Col. John Hanice to Isaac Melcher and from whom he (John boggess) has the regularly deduced title.
      Beginning at the mouth of the branch which runs between said tract of land and Thos Lorsey's (not Lindsey) survey of 150 acres thence up Mudlick creek to James Matthews survey of 500 acres.

      Land Book I page 593; Oct 27, 1834; between James Matthews (boone) and James Marshall (Clarke), $166.66, Tract of land on the Mudlick fork of the Big Bone Lick. Part of Joseph Matthew survey of 500 acres. bordered Berry and Netherlands survey of 7000 acres. 100 acres. Nancy Matthews, Joseph's wife released dower.

      Land Book O page 217/218; July 2, 1844; between James Marshall and Julia Anne (she signed her name this way) his wife (boone) and William Mosley of the second part. Mosley was indebted to James for 578 dollars. 157 acres on a branch of Mudlick bounded by Marshall and John P. Gaines. The Presbyterian Meeting house was excuded and is under mortage to William T Vois (spelling). This is a real tough deed to read.

      On your entry (above) for Rootsweb, I think I may have your Elizabeth unknown Marshall. I have wondered what happened to her, and I think perhaps you have found her.

      I think that she was Elizabeth Fenley, daughter of John Bayne Fenley and Susanna Hurst. It was a mystery as to what happened to her because for some reason she was not mentioned in the will of John Bayne Fenley nor Susanna Fenley.(The family spelling is Fenley)

      Settlement of the estate of William Hurst, finalized in 1848 when William Hurst’s share of his father’s land was finally sold. To the heirs of Susannah Findley, one of the sisters of William Hurst dec'd ($76.13). Leaving 6 children & divided as follows.
      William Findley, or his heirs, one sixth (12.69).
      John W. Findley or his heirs, one sixth (12.69).
      Jennett Findley, or her heirs, one sixth (12.69). (Ancestress of Anne Stinson)
      John Fox and James Coleman, in right of their wives - daughters of Anne Barker (12.69)
      Nancy Masterson or her heirs each one half (12.69).
      William Marshall, Joseph Marshall, James Marshall, Betsey Marshall who married [blank] Corben, Jemima Marshall who married James Horseman, Jemima (?) Marshall who married Jacob Latimer, children of Elizabeth Marshall formerly Findley, each one Sixth (12.69) $76.13
