Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born (1939) and raised in Denver area . . .

Have a tree on Ancestry.com. My family arrived from England and settled in Maryland, and King George County, Virginia. They migrated from Virginia to Southern Illinois, and from there to Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado.

I am much less sure of my history before 1763, but I believe my origin in England was in Yorkshire, Pately Bridge, but that is not successfully proven at this point in time.

RE: Ancestors of Robert Marshall
Very interesting! I'll keep these notes and let you know if I find anything that might be of interest to you. Sometimes the smallest clue opens doors! When I was in Scotland about 6 years ago, I tried to find our Marshall family tartan, but I didn't have enough info to go on. My mother is a Morrison, also traced back to Scotland (just south of Edinburgh) and one grandmother is a Boyle, from the north side of Edinburgh, but I've only figured all of this out in the past month. Still no plaids....but maybe I'll find them someday! (If they actually exist "officially"...the info concerning clan tartans is very confusing!)

Good luck with your research.

Ancestors of Robert Marshall
Hi, I just came across a message from you regarding your lineage. I know that Robert Marshall is a very common name and there are many different lines of Marshalls that are unrelated, but I still get interested every time I see that name! Do you know (or suspect) if you have any Scottish blood?

My step-father was a Robert Marshall (born in PA, died in CA while serving in the Navy) and my half-brother is a Robert Marshall, living in Fremont, CA. I am doing extensive research for my brothers, their children and grandchildren and have found some very exciting stories! 6 months after working on this (daily!) I managed to get a copy of a small family book, documenting their ancestors back to Cadder Parrish, Lanarkshire, Scotland. The Marshalls there included many Roberts, Williams and James'...all family names carried down through our family in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Florida and California. They were almost all stone masons and master builders, many of whom emigrated to Pennsylvania.

If you think there is any chance you are related, please get in touch with me to share information.

Now I've just discovered that my brothers are also direct descendants of a second (separate) line of Marshalls that emigrated from England to New Jersey, many of whom became glass blowers in Cape May, NJ. There's even a Marshallville in NJ. where this family lived. This is really exciting because we have an uncle, James William Marshall, who is 88 and never heard of any of these ancestors before! It's great fun sharing these profiles with him.

Good luck in your research. Maybe our lines will merge somewhere!
