DIED--MARSHALL--At his home, Wayne St., Parker, Pa., October 22, 1898, Mr. John T. Marshall, in his 67th, year.
The subject of this notice was born in Lawrenceburg, March 1,1832, and therefore nearly his whole life had been identified with Parker and its interests. He had watched its growth from a very few houses, some of them primitive log ones, to a busy bustling and growing oil town. He had seen its adversity, and helped raze many buildings and noted their departure to other points of excitement. He had seen the rise and growth of a whole generation and could relate many an interesting incident of present and former citizens, of their business relations in the earlier days of the coal traffic, of the iron industry, of the activity along our beautiful Allegheny, when that was a public thoroughfare, and great outlet to the Smoky City. He could tell you of the changes all along the line when the screeching iron horse crowded out the slow old boat. He could tell you too of the many good citizens who have finished life's course and crossed the river to the shore of Eternal rest. Many are left too who Will hear of the death of Mr. Marshall with fond regret and ten¬der recollection. He will be remembered for his good nature, for his kindness at heart, for his generosity, for his charity, for his unquestioned honesty. He expected these virtues in others and many a financial loss did he sustain in consequence.
Mr. Marshall had a wide circle of family and friends. In his own immediate family he is survived by his wife, one sister, Mrs. John Turk and three brothers, Wm. of Reynoldsville, Elisha R. of Parker and Sam'l. of N. Washington. He was married Sept. 30,1890 to Mrs. Julia Barber.
His last illness extended over a period of nearly three years. He suffered a stroke of paralysis, entirely unable to perform any kind of labor or attend to any business during those many months. Helpless as an infant patiently and uncomplainingly he bore his trials, watched and faithfully and carefully nursed by his companion till the end came on Saturday evening last.
The funeral was held on Monday afternoon last at the Presby¬terian Church of which Mr. Marshall was a member. In the absence of the pastor of that denomination, Rev. Plannette of the M. E. Church, kindly officiated, assisted by Mr. M. S. Adams a life long friend, and the Presbyterian Choir.
The internment was in the Presbyterian Cemetery in the Marshall plot.
"He has gone to his rest
In the land of the blest,
Beloved of God, he is sleeping,
Where no sorrow may roll
O'er the peace of his soul,
Now safe in the Father's kind keeping."
