      Name: Ben Marshall
      Email: bmarsh1999@att dot net
      Note:
      My name is Ben marshall and I am a direct descendent of John Marshall of Nelson County thru his son Mark. Spent the past week in Nelson ant thought maybe you would find his will of interest: Nelson Will Book 1 page 582: names Margaret as wife, sons: Robert, Mark, John, daughters: Ellinder Williams, Mary Blue and Hannah Chambers...probated 9 Nov 1801.

      What is also of interest is the will of a John Marshall in Nelson Will Book A page 39 presented 15 Jun 1791. Will does not name any heirs...could this not be the father of John and William ?

      Are they related to Richard (also in Nelson in late 1700's) ?
