William R. Marshall owned and operated a farm in Highland township and was born January 18, 1855, in Guernsey county, Ohio. He pursued his education in the Pike schoolhouse in Adams township, Guernsey county, and as soon as he was old enough to handle the plow began work in the fields. After putting aside his text-books his undivided attention was given to farm labor on the old homestead for five years.
He then removed to Richardson county, Nebraska, where he purchased a ranch and engaged in the stock business, buying and selling cattle and hogs. He owned one hundred and sixty acres of land there and resided there for ten years, when he removed to Pawnee county, Nebraska, where he spent the succeeding decade. Again he sold out and returned to Ohio, settling upon the farm where he lived continuously since 1888. He had purchased the place five years before and made it a valuable and productive property, equipped with all modern conveniences and accessories. It comprised one hundred and seventy acres of land conveniently situated a mile and a half from Bloomfield and two and a half miles from New Concord. The place was devoted to general farming and to stock-raising. He made a specialty of hogs but also raised cattle, horses and sheep.
