Keziah Mathews was born 18 Jun 1828 in Delaware Co., Ohio the daughter of James Mathews (1788 – 1869) and Mary "Polly" Walling (1793 – 1869), the fourth in a family of two sons & six daughters. Keziah's parents being of Irish origin, were one of the early pioneers of Campaign Co., OH. Keziah's father, James, is described as a "man of much force and ability, and became one of the substantial farmers of the Buckeye State." The story that he had two wives after Mary Walling is not clear. It appears from the 1860 census record that James Mathews 72 living in Cream Ridge, Livingston Missouri with wife Hannah 62. He dies in Livingston Missouri at the of 81 on 23 Mar 1869. Keziah Mathews married James W. Marsh 15 Dec 1848 in Madison Co., Ohio. Her story mirrors that of her husband as they migrate from Ohio to Clinton County IN to Vermilion Co IL and back to Clinton County over a ten year period. She delivers eleven children by their 25th wedding anniversary. Ten live to adulthood. Nine of her children survive when she dies 8 Jul 1902 at the age of 74 of "entero-colitis". Keziah and James Marsh are my 2nd great grandparents, my great grandfather is their first born, son David Marsh (1849 – 1917).
