George Marsh married by about 1621 Elizabeth _____. She married (2) Weymouth [blank] November 1648 Richard Bowen.
They had four children: Mary Page, Thomas, Elizabeth Turner, & Onesiphorus.
In his will, George Marsh names "my daughter Elizebeth Turner" and "my daughter Mary Padge," without identifying the husband of either. The husband of "Mary Padge" is easily identified, as John Page named his second son, baptized at Hingham on 6 November 1643, "Onesephris." John Page later joined his brother-in-law Onesiphorus Marsh in the migration to Salisbury.
The identification of the husband of "Elizebeth Turner" is more difficult and less certain. Torrey shows that there have been at least two proposals for who this man may have been: John Turner of Roxbury and Robert Turner of Boston. No other Turner male with a wife named Elizabeth as early as 1647 appears in Torrey. The second of these suggestions is easily disposed of, as George McCracken has shown that the wife of Robert Turner was Elizabeth Freestone.
John Turner of Roxbury very likely did marry the daughter of George Marsh. On 27 September 1647, Elizabeth Turner, daughter of John Turner, was born at Roxbury. On 7 October 1647, "Goodwife Turner died in child bed, a Godly young woman, though not yet admitted [to Roxbury church], yet should had not her travail prevented." Her given name is not provided by this record, but the name of her only child hints that that may have been the name of the mother as well. George Marsh made his will on 2 July 1647, at a time when the wife of John Turner of Roxbury would have been at least six months pregnant.
