Elizabeth Tebbs Forman was born on February 2, 1834 in Mason Co., Ky. to William and Phoebe (Glenn) Forman. She was the second of three surviving daughters and was likely named after Mrs. Elizabeth (Tebbs) Forman, the wife of her uncle Thomas W. Forman. Her childhood nickname was Lizzie. In the early 1850s, Elizabeth became acquainted with Robert M. Marshall, a young lawyer from the area. They were married on April 21, 1856 and Elizabeth moved to Rock Island, Ill. where Robert was living and practicing law.

Robert and Elizabeth returned to Mason Co., Ky. in 1860 and purchased a farm near Sardis, where they were to raise their growing family. Robert and Elizabeth had six surviving sons together: Martin P., a mining speculator who disappeared in Montana in the 1880s and was never heard from again; Charles, a farmer, who moved to Belknap, Ill; Logan, a farmer, who eventually moved to McAllen, Tex; Robert Jr., a physician who practiced in Colorado, New Mexico and finally Texas; Louis, a physician who practiced in Washington, Ky; and John, a farmer who remained with his parents in Sardis. Robert and Elizabeth also raised two of their grandchildren (children of their son Charles) for several years after the death of their daughter-in-law.

Elizabeth died on April 10, 1901 at her home in Sardis, due to pneumonia, complicated with heart trouble. She was buried in the family burial ground.
