My Marshall Ancestors

Marshall family migration route: South Carolina Ohio Indiana Kansas Oregon

GENERATION 1

01. William John Marshall was born on March 10, 1799 in South Carolina and died on November 10, 1837 in Miami Co., Ohio. William was of English descent according to a biography of his son Sampson published in the "History of Miami County, Ohio". In abt 1817 he married Charity Wright.  She was born June 11, 1801 in South Carolina and is most likely the daughter of Nathan Wright and Sarah Jay.  We can help to establish that Charity's parents are Nathan Wright and Sarah Jay by a letter written in 1841 by Right Wright retained by Ronald E. Toops to sisters Mary Brooks and Charity Marshall. 

Between 1822 and 1825, the Marshall family migrated to Miami County, Ohio from South Carolina in a wagon covering a distance of 700 miles. They first settled on the Stillwater, but ended up in Darke County.  William purchased land on July 10, 1832 in Miami County. The cause of William's death in 1837 at age 38 is unknown.  It is also unknown what happened to Charity after William's death. 

The family appeared to have followed the Quaker migration route from South Carolina to Ohio.  Charity's parents were Quakers but no traces of William, Charity or any of their children have been found in Quaker meeting minutes to date. His son Thomas was in possession of a Quaker bible which was used to record the births of his children but it likely came from his wife's side (Furnas) who were known Quakers.  It is interesting to note that several of William's children married into families with Quaker roots such as the Furnas' and Pearsons.  William is buried in the Union Joint Cemetery, Miami, Ohio. 

The 10 children of William and Charity are:      

1 John William Marshall (Born Mar 25, 1818 in SC - Died Jan 09, 1854)
       Married Sarah Pearson (Jan 5, 1822 - May 13, 1905 in Abbotsville, OH)
       (Sarah's parents are not known)

John and his family moved from Miami County, Ohio to Randolph County, Indiana sometime after February 1847.  It is believed that his brother Thomas followed him there. 

Marshalltown -
was a community of freed Randolph Slaves.  The Gillards, Hills, and Youngs purchased land in Newton Township in 1847 from John and Sarah Marshall.  The community lasted into the 1950's.  Today the land where the community existed is a field.

GENERATION 2

02. Thomas Marshall, son of William and Charity was born February 25, 1822 in South Carolina and moved with his family to Miami County, Ohio between 1822-1825.  He met his wife Rhoda Furnas in Ohio and married in 1843. Rhoda is the daughter of Martin Furnas and Marsena Patty.  County deeds show him being in Miami, Ohio Newton Township in 1850 (Source: Miami Valley Genealogical Index)  In 1860 the family was listed on the Randolph, Indiana White River Township U.S. Census with Thomas' occupation as a farmer.  At that time the census shows that his sister Jane was living in the same area with her children 1 township away which helps to prove their relationship.  Nancy Jane, the couple's youngest child was born in 1863. It is believed that Thomas left Rhoda in 1863 or later because son William Frank in the Civil War had to return home early to help Rhoda out at the farm.  Their daughter Emily died in 1865 at age 12.  Click here for a picture of Thomas from around 1865.

In 1870, Rhoda was still in Randolph County, Indiana with her children the year Thomas died on February 25th of delirium tremens. His death is noted in the 1870 Randolph County Indiana Mortality Census for White River Township but the location of his grave is yet unknown. On May 19, 1870 Rhoda filed Guardianship papers for her  children.  The 1870 census shows her as head of the household with the addition of her brother James, his wife Rebecca and son Lloyd.  As William was a farmer, they most likely moved in to help with the farm.  By 1873 Rhoda had moved on and was living in Sumner County, Kansas where her son Newton died at age 12.

The Thomas Marshall family bible was a Quaker one.  Although Thomas and Rhoda don't show up on any Quaker Meeting Minutes, Rhoda's parents were Quaker and she may also have been prior to her marriage to Thomas.  This old picture of Thomas was taken when his son William Frank was about 16, or around the year 1861.  It was framed in the same antique styled frame that his son's was. 

The 7 children of Thomas and Rhoda are:
 

1 Arthur Marshall (Born on Jan 22, 1844 in Miami, OH - Died Jun 19, 1845 in Miami, OH) Age 1

GENERATION 3

03. William Frank Marshall, son of Thomas and Rhoda was born on August 14, 1845 in Miami, Ohio.  William fought in the Civil War and first enlisted in June, 1861 in Winchester, Indiana serving in Col. 6 19th Indiana Infantry.  Click Here for a picture of William at age 16 around this time.  He was later captured during Sherman's march to the sea and spent time as a prisoner. He later escaped and returned home to help his mother on the farm. He then went back into the army on Feb 23, 1864 in Ohio as a Private in Company I, 1st Calvary Regiment and was discharged on September 13, 1865 in Hilton Head, SC.

William was a gunsmith and also made violins. In 1871, 1 year after Thomas died he was living by himself in Camp Point Adams in Illinois which is 8 miles east of the Missisippi.  While there he wrote a year long diary that details his daily activities before he met Nancy.  At the time he was known as a fine fiddle player and often performed at local events.  He married Nancy Emily Crewse about 1879 and settled in Wellington, Kansas. Nancy is the daughter of James Crews and Rhoda McMulin.  By 1880, mother Rhoda and sister Cornelia were living with them.  About 1900, the family moved to Eugene, Oregon where his youngest 2 children were born. He died in 1909 in Eugene, 5 years after Ada was born. He was 64 years old when he died.
