The History of Hendricks County (Chicago: Interstate Publishing, 1885)--Middle Township, pages 705-706:

Marshall Holtsclaw, a prominent farmer of Middle Township, was born in Pulaski County, Ky., Oct. 25, 1832, a son of John and Annie Holtsclaw. In 1834 his parents moved to Montgomery County, Ind., and thence in 1835 to Hendricks County, and settled near where our subject now lives. His father was married twice. By the first wife were born three children-- Louis, John, and Francis J., and by the second, seven, five of whom are living--Marshall, Green L., Daniel F., Surelda, and Mary A. Marshall was reared and educated in Hendricks County, remaining with his parents till manhood. He is one of the successful agriculturalists of the township, owning a good farm of 135 acres. He was married in August, 1854, to Elizabeth H. Stevens, of Parke County, Ind., and to them was born one child--Annie E. Mrs. Holtsclaw died July, 1857, and July 25, 1866, Mr. Holtsclaw married Sallie A., daughter of William West. Three children have been born to them, but two of whom are living--Ora V. and Effie M.

He was discharged in February, 1864, and re-enlisted in the same company and regiment and participated in the Atlanta campaign.
