ARCHIBALD MARSHALL, the fourth son of William and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Marshall, was born in what is now Adams County, Pa., March 29, 1762.
He married Margaret Wilson, a half-sister of Catherine, the wife of Archibald's brother, William.
Margaret's mother was a native of Germany and there was consequently more German blood in Archibald's wife than there was in William's wife. Archibald and Margaret were married in 1787. They first lived in Conecoghague Settlement until about 1800, when they migrated to Westmoreland (now Indiana) county, where his parents and brothers already resided. They lived near Ebenezer part, if not all, of the time on land formerly occupied by his brother, William, until 1814, , when he sold and removed to Armstrong Co., Pa.
He purchased land about two miles from his brother 'William's residence and one and. one-half miles from the present site of Dayton, Pa. He and his sons cleared away the brush and built a cabin where the house of his grandson, Harry S. Marshall, now stands.
There was no cleared land on his tract. They had no stable; hence their horses had to be contented with the meager accommodations of standing tied to trees, or being turned loose with bells on their necks. Their sheep were brought in and put into a pen at night to save them from the wolves. There were no fields in which to keep their cows, even at night, and they often strayed away. One morning in particular they were compelled to go across Cowanshannock creek, a distance of about five miles, after them.
Mr. and Mrs. Archibald Marshall resided on this farm until their respective deaths. He died in November, 1835. She died in 1837. They are both buried at Glade Run. Their children were, Catherine, William, Joseph, John, Margaret, Archibald, James and Samuel.
