      HISTORY OF GRANT COUNTY, 1886, states that Riley Marshall came down the river on a flat-boat from Deerfield, and settled on the northeast quarter of Section 25, and lived there about two years from the time of his arrival in 1829; then he bought the Boots Mill, at Marion, and moved there about 1831.
      The History also indicates Joseph Cravens, Sr. came about 1836 and William Marshall was in the county from 1836 to perhaps 1842.
      Land deeds in Kansas show that Riley & Elizabeth Marshall of Wabash County, Indiana and Ezra T. Marshall of Lewis County, Missouri deeded land in Lykins County, Kansas to John A. McKoon of LaGrange, Missouri. Deeds recorded on Oct 20, 1859.
      A U.S. land patent to Riley Marshall for 80 acres in Lykins County, Kansas was recorded on Oct 31, 1873 in Paola, Kansas. It was bounty land originally issued to a widow of the War of 1812 but assigned to Riley Marshall.
