  • Notes 
    • === This family researched by Julie Stanton Glick

      Dawn Adams and I descend from Ezekiel Marshall (1824-1864) through his two sons, William Stewart Marshall and Thomas Cooper Marshall, respectively. Ezekiel was born in (W)Virginia (likely Monongalia County) or Pennsylvania and died in Wheeling, Ohio, WV. I have two censuses for Ezekiel (1850 and 1860) and they differ in his birth place. We believe he is the son of Hezekiah Marshall (born between 1765-1770 in Maryland, based on 1810-1840 censuses. and died about 1842, Monongalia Co.,(W)VA). While we have not yet found a document showing both names together, the 1830 and 1840 censuses for Hezekiah have a tick mark for a male "child" the right age for Ezekiel, and Dawn and I, along with a few other descendants of Ezekiel, have over 40 DNA matches that descend from Hezekiah as well,

      I do have one DNA match (autosomal) that descends from Robert Marshall and Nancy Mardis, and two matches (siblings) that are descendants of Alexander Marshall. All three match me at either 7 or 8cM. The two siblings would be 5C1R to me

      My uncle, Arlie Wright, told me once about a Marshall man that was taking a monument to the Marshall
      Cemetery to set for his mother. The wagon wheel broke, and he left it where it broke down - wagon and stone. It sit there for years. A few years ago, Carlo McCoy bought a monument at a sale. The seller had said that it was in an old broken down wagon. This is the same stone my uncle had told me about.

      It read:
      Marshall, Ellen - w/o Joseph*, died March 8, 1904, aged 66 years

      WPA Records have listed here:
      Marshall, Eli* - 1811 ~ January 12, 1827
      Marshall, Infant - s/o J.S. and S.J., April 16, 1896 ~ April 17, 1896

      NOTE: Joseph Marshall was the son of Hezekiah and Atha Neal Marshall.
      Eli Marshall was the son of James and Mary Marshall.
