Pheba Marsh Woodruff
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 19, 1737
Union County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Jun. 19, 1806
Surry County
North Carolina, USA

The gravestone of "Mannasa" Woodruff in Alleghany Co., NC, identifies his wife as "Pheba Marsh."

She was doubtless a member of the large Marsh family of Elizabethtown, NJ. They were the descendants of Samuel Marsh b. Essex, England, d. Sept. 1683, Rathway, Essex Co., NJ, m. Comfort Mann abt. 1647, New Haven, CT. He is on the original list of Elizabethtown Associates.

Several individuals named Marsh appear in the 1790 Surry County census. (2 Johns, 2 John Jr.'s, William, Minor). Their relationship to Phebe is unknown.

It is possible that Pheba was buried elsewhere in North Carolina, but I have placed her here because her husband and children are buried here.
