He was an original proprietor of Hartford,CT in 1636, and also lived in Hadley and Northampton,MA.

Son of John Marsh and Grace (Baldwin) Marsh. [The American Genealogist Volume 58, in which it states the parentage is proven by the will of Grace (Baldwin) Marsh where she mentions her son John 'now in New England'.]

This John Marsh should not be confused with John Marsh of Salem (1611-1674). That memorial incorrectly names that John Marsh's parents as John Marsh and Grace Baldwin. John and Grace were THIS John Marsh's parents.

His second wife was Hepzibah Ford Lyman Marsh, the widow of Richard Lyman Jr, and the daughter of Thomas Ford and Elizabeth Charde Ford.
