Catharina Truby Marshall
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1763
Northampton County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 9, 1806
Fairfield County
Ohio, USA

Catharina Truby Rohrer Marshall was the daughter of Colonel Christopher Truby and Sybilla Bauman of Greensburg, Westmoreland Co. PA. She was born east of the mountains in what is now Carbon County (then Towamensing Twp., Northampton Co.) and came with her family about 1771 to the western Pennsylvania frontier. She first married Frederick Rohrer, Jr. (1767-1794), the son of early Maryland settler and Pennsylvania Indian trader Frederick Rohrer and his wife Elizabeth Deemer. She later married Franklin County, Pennsylvania, native
John Marshall in about 1799, and they kept a tavern in Greensburg.

The family moved west with their six children (two Rohrers and four Marshalls)to the Ohio frontier town of New Lancaster in late 1805 or early 1806 to build a tavern there and begin a new life. They both died of a fever in the summer of 1806. The six children were reared by their Marshall kin in/near St. Clairsville, Belmont County, Ohio; by their Aunt Mary Ann Truby Hovey ("Aunt Hovey") near what is now Parker, Armstrong Co., PA; and by other Truby and Rohrer kinfolk in Greensburg and Armstrong County.

The family placed a marker for Marshall and his wife in the Old German Burying Ground on Main Street in Greensburg; however, it is nearly inconceivable that their bodies were brought back to Pennsylvania for a final burial. The Greensburg markers most likely were memorial markers, and the Marshalls would have been buried in the Old City Cemetery in Lancaster. The site is now a park--see the photo.
