BENJAMIN C. MARSHALL 1839 Sussex Co. New Jersey. On May 17, 1866 he married Emmogene Hazelton (1847 1933) at the E.H. Hazelton home. Edwin Hazelton and Agustus Barnes stood up with them. Emmogene was a sister to Ellen, who married Alfred Marshall, Ben's brother.

Benjamin C. Marshall died after a lingering sickness, Sunday morning, May 16, 1886. Although Mr. Marshall was a great sufferer, he patiently waited for the Master to say, "It is enough, come up higher." He has held places of trust in the township and discharged his duties with credit to himself and those around him.

Mr. Marshall was a member of the Baptist church, and leaves a large circle of friends to mourn his loss.

According to the "History of the Aurelius Baptist Church", it was decided on Dec. 23, 1865 to build a church building for the growing congregation. Benjamin and his brother Solomon (Saul) Marshall, members of the congregation, built the church in about 1 years. Benjamin held many different offices throughout the years, from starting the fire on Sunday morning to being chairman of the board, each job well done and appreciated.

Benjamin joined the church by baptism on Mar. 14, 1869: was elected clerk on Nov. 20, 1869; elected trustee on Jan. 24, 1871; elected to the committee on arrangements
Jan. 24, 1871; and was appointed delegate May 25, 1872. He was paid anywhere from $5. to $20 for lighting the fires and the lamps. The acre of land upon which the church was built was given by Mr. & Mrs. William Hazelton, parents of Emmogene.

Funeral services at the Baptist church, Rev. McConnell officiating.

After Benjamin died, Emmogene married Martin Perigo and moved to Spokane, Washington, where she died, about 1933.

Linferd Delos Marshall, Jan. 27, 1867/Oct. 22. 1925; Ernest Marshall, 1869;
Floyd Marshall, May 13, 1874/died sometime after 1930.
