EUGENE REGISTER-GUARD (Newspaper) Archives, November 6, 1886:
"Bob Marshall, a veteran miner, recently had a leg broken by a bank caving, at the new placer mines in Grant county, Oregon. The Chinese doctor at Susanville was sent for. He said it was a very bad break and would take a long while to knit. Consequently, he would have to have $400 before setting it. He was remonstrated with and told that there was not over $100 in the camp. Then he wanted the $100 and a note for the other $300 signed by every man in the camp. About that time Newt. Leslie (Jasper Newton Lesley) got very hostile, and after telling the Chinaman what he thought of anyone who would thus exhort money from the unfortunate, gave him five minutes to leave the camp. He left. One of the boys set Marshall's leg, and when a white doctor arrived he pronounced it all right."

His Oregon death certificate says he was born in Oregon City, Clackamas, Oregon on June 18, 1854.
