Charles Marshall was born on September 17, 1863 in Mason County, Ky to Robert Morris and Elizabeth (Forman) Marshall. He was the fourth of nine children and was brought up on his father’s farm in Mason County. Charles attended the Lebanon Normal College in Warren County, Ohio and graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering. Charles made the determination to go into farming and was gifted with 100 acres of wooded land near Belknap in Johnson County, Ill. by his maternal grandfather William Forman in 1884. Charles improved the land and becoming successful was able to purchase the rest of his grandfather’s 1,185-acre land holdings in Johnson County after his death in 1890.
On February 26, 1890, Charles married for the first time to a young neighbor named Effie Alice Williams. Charles and Effie had two children together: Elizabeth Forman and Robert Morris Marshall. Sadly, Effie’s health was damaged by her second childbirth and she died of heart failure in 1893. Charles brought his young children to live with his parents in Ky., where they remained for many years. On March 23, 1898 Charles remarried to Clara May Evers. The following year they had their only child together, a son named William Forman Marshall. In 1901, following the death of Charles’s mother, Charles brought Elizabeth back to Belknap to live with them. His son Robert returned sometime later. Charles’s agricultural pursuits continued to succeed and he expanded his holdings to over 3,000 acres. It was a rather large operation with forestry, animal husbandry and planting and at various times of the year employed up to a dozen people. Charles was involved in the community as well, serving on the board of the Illinois Agricultural Association, Farm Bureau of Johnson County, and as president of the First National Bank of Vienna. He was a loyal member of the Methodist Church.
Charles passed away at his home near Belknap on September 25, 1945. Per his obituary, he was survived by his wife Clara; daughter Elizabeth M. Judson of St. Joseph, Mo.; sons: Dr. Robert M. Marshall of Albuquerque, N.M. and William F. Marshall of Greenville, Ill.; grandchildren: Catherine Judson, Clara Judson, Jane Marshall and Charles Marshall; brothers: Logan M. Marshall of Weslaco, Tex. and Dr. Robert M. Marshall of San Antonio, Tex.; and one niece: Mrs. Virgil Fryman of Washington, Ky.
