Birth: Apr. 2, 1840
Lawrenceburg
Armstrong County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jun. 8, 1864
Andersonville
Sumter County
Georgia, USA

A son of John Marshall (1803-1889) and Charlotte Kelker (1800-1854) of Lawrenceburg (now Parker), Armstrong County, PA.

His nephew, John Leathers Marshall (son of Henry's brother William Kelker Marshall) wrote this brief recollection in the 1920s: "On a sadder note, my father's younger brother [Henry Marks Marshall, 1840-1864] served in the war, was captured and died of starvation in Andersonville prison. His family and friends sent him boxes of food and clothing which he never received. One of his comrades who saw him the day before he died went back the next day only to find that he had been carried out by the rebels to his last resting place which was no grave but only a few leaves and brush to cover his remains."

HENRY'S MIDDLE NAME {Rough Draft--I have to wordsmith all this better for clarity1

Charlotte Turk Dean (died 1982) recalled the middle names of all the siblings in Henry's family, and told me his middle name was "Marks." I recorded it as such in multiple written records from the 1970s onward. Charlotte's memory is the only evidence for his the spelling of his middle name.

In early 2012, baptism records of St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church (Butler, Butler County, Pennsylvania) became available through www.ancestry.com. In them, the name Samuel Marquis appears, married to a Mar. Kelker (born 1805; was she Maria? Margaret? Martha?) This couple had children, among whom were Henry Kelker Marquis, Charlotte Marquis, and Rebecca Marquis. (Rebecca Thome Kelker was Charlotte Kelker Marshall's mother.) The names suggest a close relationship to Charlotte Kelker Marshal (born 1800)--Henry's mother. If Charlotte's sister married Samuel Marquis, then their son Henry Marquis Kelker could have been the full cousin of Henry Marquis Marshall.

So, the name may have been Henry Marquis Marshall rather than Henry Marks Marshall. Charlotte Dean's memory may have been aural--she heard "Marks" when the name actually was "Marquis."

Until we locate a primary source showing his named spelled out, it's safe to use the name recorded in his parents' family Bible and in his military records: "Henry M. Marshall."

"A boy's will is the wind's will, and the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts." Your family will never forget you, Henry, or the dreams that died with you in that terrible place so far from your beautiful Allegheny River home.
