In 1887, twenty-five years ago, Willis Augustus Chapman (No. 285), editor of 
St. James, (Minn.) Journal, published an 18 page, 5%x8|4^, Haskell-Marshall 
Family Record, from data gathered by Martha Marshall (No. 86) and a few other 
members of the family. That book traces incompletely the descendants of David 
and Sarah (Haskell) Marshall of Tewksbury and Lunenburg, Mass. For some 
years I have been endeavoring to complete and supplement that record, and have 
also traced to some extent their ancestors. In 191 1 I decided to put the result of my 
researches into print, and, while getting it ready for the press, have found many new 
branches. Hence, the Marshall Family Record which I offer is not strictly a 
Marshall genealogy, but a record of that family and many more allied families. 
Such names as George Sewell Boutwell, L.L. D. , Gov. of Massachusetts, 1851 
and 1852 ; Gen. John Meredith Read, Consul-General of the U. S. for France 
and Algeria ; Samuel Eliot, historian, educator, philanthropist ; Josiah Thompson 
Marshall, pioneer merchant and tradesman with China, the Sandwich Islands and 
the Pacific Coast ; George Otis Holbrooke, poet and missionary, I find among, 
or, allied with the Marshall family, and, in tracing their branches, I have gone be- 
yond the original scope of my book. To all descendants who have generously and 
cordially aided me in securing accurate statistics I render thanks. Like all similar 
works, errors and omissions doubtless appear, and additions and corrections will be 
gratefully received. To Aunt Martha Marshall, our 1st Historian, to Willis 
Augustus Chapman, our 1st Publisher, descendants of the Marshall family should 
accord high praise. May their work and this book prove an incentive to some inter- 
ested descendant, at the end of another quarter of a century — in 1937, to compile a 
better and more complete record.

1. JOHN> MARSHALL* of Boston, New England, 1635, the 
emigrant ancestor of the family, was born in England in 1621 and came 
to America in the '' Hopewell " in 1635, in company with his brother 
Christopher, but the latter remained in this country only a few years, 
then returned to England. For a time after his arrival here, John' 
Marshall was in the service of Edward Hutchinson ; he was admitted 
inhabitant of Boston, Feb. 24, 1639-40, and was one of the proprietors of 
that town. This John^ Marshall was descended from John Marshall 
of Southark, England, whose son founded Christ Church at Southark, 
and to whom was given the coat-of-arms which some of his descendants 
still bear. John^ Marshall was a husbandman and he and one William 
Marshall had shares in Plum Island. He died in Boston in March 1715. 
His wife, Sarah, born 1623, whom he married in 1645, died Sept. 28, 
1689. A Marshall family of eight children, according to " C. H. Pope's 
Pioneers of Mass. (1900)," are their children. Some authorities agree 
with Pope while others do not. We are unable to either confirm or 
deny, but give Pope's list of births, the first of which is, 2. Sergeant 
John- Marshall, the positive ancestor from which we are tracing our

the descendants of 2. Sergeant John Marshall. 


2. SERGEANT JOHN "-^ MARSHALL, b., Dec. 10, 1645, is found

also granted a twenty-acre lot, lying partly on the township and partly 
on the "Commons." This lot was on the old Andover road, and when 
the location of that road was changed in 1660, he was allowed a private

and is situated about 2^2 miles northwest of Lunenburg village, on the 
old "Northfield road," and is now owned by *Herbert A. Eaton. The 
present house (see frontispiece) is said to have been built about the 
time of David's marriage; the first house stood on the opposite side of 
the road, and was destroyed many years ago, David Marshall m. at

71. JOSIAH THOMPSON' MARSHALL was educated in 
Boston, Mass., but did not graduate at Harvard, because of an early de- 
velopment of the " wander-lust." His father being owner of many ships 
engaged in the Eastern trade, he early went, as owner's son, on the long 
voyages made to the Orient, being one of the first white men to ever 
land at the Sandwich Islands. He visited China five times before he 
was 21 years of age; being one of the first party of Americans to dine 
with the Emperor ; the table on that occasion being spread not with a 
cloth, but with rjse petals one foot deep. His travels were, for those 
days, remarkable ; round the world six times, and he could truly say, " I 
have seen the sun rise in every quarter of the globe." He organized in 
America the Bethel Movement ; was active with John B. Gough in tem- 
perance work ; with Garrit Smith and others in the Underground Rail- 
road and Anti-slavery movements. An accomplished writer, and for 
years, foreign correspondent of the New York Herald ; m. at Utica,

Missouri, March 22d, 1855. 

To Wni I. Marshall, Ashby, Mass. 

Dear Son : 

I promised to write you after I arrived in Kansas, but I have concluded to 
commence while on the way, and conclude when I arrive there. I am now on board 
the steamboat about 130 miles above St. Louis, and for your amusement I will give a 
brief detail of this tedious journey. We left Fitchburg I)e]io about 8 o'clock Tuesday 
evening the 13th, arrived at Keene at 10^ and left at 11, went very well until we be- 
gan to ascend the high land in Mt. Holly, Vt., there it had snowed and blowed furi- 
ously the forepart of the night, and it being high grade, deep cut and circuitous, we 
found ourselves at a dead stand, and we had to send out several hands to shovel away 
snow, and then start one Engine ahead as far as it would go and then run back and 
hitch on and go up to the men that were shoveling out, thus we du'i" along and arrived 
at Rutland at about 8 o'clock a. m. the 14th, 5 hours behind time, and thereby lost one 


tniin. Left at 111 '4 Icir Albanv, \vc went very slow, haviiv;' a \cTy liea\y train, and 
only one small Engine, which snnic of nur ])arty called the l)iinkey, and heiii.u' behind 
regular time, we had tn run hack several times2 or.^ miles, and turn out for the comini;- 
trains to pass us, which reminded us of the fro,^' jumping- out of tlie well, we arri\ ed 
at Albany about dark the 14th, here a^ain we were so far behind time that we lost 
anotlier train. Left Albany at 11 >^ o'clock that exenin;^-, bein:^ assured by the con- 
ductor that we should arrive at Suspension Bridoe to take the forenoon train through 
Canada for I)etn)it, but again we were disappointed, having but one Elngine our long 
and heavy train m )\ed slowly. We passed Syracuse about daylight the 15th, arrived 
at Rochester at 10 a. m. and left at IIX, saw several fine fields of winter w^heat where 
the snow was gone. Arri\ ed at Suspension Bridge at F> \). m. Many of our party 
walked across the bridge on purpose to look at it, truly it is a beautiful and wonderful 
piece of work, as we stood upon it we could plainly see Niagara Falls, though they were 
2 miles distant, here all our baggage, and such as did not chose to walk were carried 
across the bridge in wagons, and landed in the great Depo in Canada, there was with 
us all the way from Boston, a young man from Virginia, who had left his master, and 
was pressing liis way to a land of freedom, we took up a collection for him in the Cars 
of 15.$ and we were glad to see him safe in Canada, free from the chains, the blood- 
hounds, and soul drivers of America. We left the Depo at Suspension Bridge at 11>^ in 
the evening, and as we had several whole families, in our party, and a large number of 
small children, we had plenty of musick, though there were some discords. That part 
of Canada through which we p.asseJ in the night contains m:my good farm?, as a man 
told me, who passed it the next day, biit that we went through in the day tiqje looked 
like p.)or land, le\ e! and wet, and the houses were ven,- poor and shabby, and the 
people I should think, were like those we sometimes see in Fitchburg wih an old 
horse and cart. 

There is one place called London about midway as we passed through Canada which 
was quite a town, with large and good buildings, but most of the houses I saw were 
small and poor, many of them built of logs, and some of them have chimneys that 
would make you laugh. They are built outside at the end of the house, with sticks of 
wood about 3 feet long, laid up in cobhouse fashion, and plastered with mud. I did 
not feel very desirous to k)cate among them. There is a large amount of land there 
that is not occupied. Some of our party said the Irish in Xew England were talking 
of leaving there and going over to settle on these lands, and we thought it would be a 
good plan. We presume the R. N's and some others, would vote to have them go, 
with a hearty good will. We arrived at Windsor, opposite Detroit at 2 p. m. the J 6th, 
having passed through Canada 230 miles. Here we crossed the Detroit river and 
landed in Detroit, but too late for the day train to Chicago. There we again took the 
niglit train, at 10 in the evening. (Music by the juvenile Choir again.) The conduc- 
tor told us he would put on 2 Engines and put us into Chicago at 9 in the morning, 
but when we had proceeded about 50 miles, he left one Engine, and we again went 
dragging along and arrived in Chicago at 4 p. m. the 17th. Chicago is laid out finely, 
with wide straight streets, and I suppose in dry weather is a fine place, but now it is 
detestable, or rather its streets are, for they are nothing but black mud and water, 
from 2 to 10 inches deep. It was now Saturday, and near night, and we did not want 
to tra\el on the Sabbath. If the several Conductors had done their duty we should 
have been in St. Louis now, knowing the boat was ready for us, and fearing it would 
be gone if we waited until Monday, and being assured if we went that night we should 
arrive in St. Louis about noon on the Sabbath, and could then go on board the boat, 
and rest and be quiet, we concluded to go, but here again we met witli the same 


treatment as before, and did not arrive in St. Louis until 4 o'clock Monday m jrniny, 
the 19th. Plenty of music by the juvenile band. Our train all the way from Fitch- 
burg- consisted of 2 baggage cars full of baggage and freight, and fnjm 6 to 9 
Passenger Cars, well filled. St. Louis is a great place for business. The levee is 
about 3 miles long and 6 or 7 rods wide, and is occupied for loading and unloading 
steamboats, and there were about 60 steamboats there loading and unloading, and a vast 
number of men and teams engaged in the work. The teams are mostly of 2 mules, 
one before the other, and they drive them very adroitly. There are so many of them 
driving hither and thither, that they sometimes get blocked for an 8th of a mile, so 
that they cannot get one way or the other, only at each end, then they jabber away 
at each other in rough style. I walked on the street about 1% miles and counted 330 
teams. I noticed they did not stop even to feed their teams at noon, but dn:;ve them 
all day, and many of them seemed intent on doing as much as possible in the day. 
Left St. Louis Tuesday the 20th, at 11 a. m. , and proceeded up the river to Kansas 
City which is in Missouri, 457 miles from St Louis. 

April 6th. The Missouri river was very low and our boat stuck on the sanJ 
bars, which delayed our progress. One day we were so delayed with sand bars that 
more than 100 of us went ashore and walked 5 miles on the bank. We saw million, 
of wild geese, on the banks as we passed up the river, and when walking 2 of our men 
caught each of them one, that had a wing wounded so they could not fly. We had (Mi 
the boat more than 300 passengers, so that more than half of us had to sleep on Mat- 
tresses on the cabin floor. We arrived in Kansas City, Saturday evening at 7 o'clock, 
having travelled night and day, all the time since we left home and had not seen a bed 
or undressed since I started. Kansas city is a small town, most of the houses are 
poor and small, with one small meeting-house. I attended meeting there on the 
Sabbath, but there were but few present except those of our p,\rty. Tlie Emigrant 
Aid Com. have a large Hotel here that accommodates Emigrants. 

Monday morning all the teams were engaged to carry families, and 9 of us 
started on foot to Lawrence 50 miles distant. At noon 4 of our party became too 
weary to keep up. We pressed our way on until dark, then called at an Indian hut, 
(having walked 30 miles) and enquired if we could stay over night, and being told we 
could, concluded to stay. The hut was about 16 feet square, and contained 6 persons. 
The Indians were very kind and pleasant to us. We talked with them, and sung and 
prayed with them, and they retired, and 3 of our party laid on the floor, on their 
blankets, and myself and the others sat up all night. I did not sleep any, though I had 
no fear, but we had not only 1 1 of us in that small room, but 3 dogs in the room, and 
3 or 4 more outside who kept up an almost continual yelping. After breakfast we 
started on our way, and arrived in Lawrence at 1>^ o'clock p. m., Tuesday, 2 weeks 
from the time I left home. Though the journey has been tedious, yet no 
accident has befallen any of our party, and I feel that I have great reason to praise 
God for his merciful care and protection. Lawrence is yet but a small town, but I 
think will become a large place. Tlie location of the City is truly beautiful, but most 
of the houses are only such as the Irish build when making railroads, but they have 
one saw-mill at work, and are now building frame houses, and 1 think if lumber could 
be obtained fast enough there would be an immense number of houses built 
here this year. There are several men preparing to make l)rick, Ixit the greatest 
call here is for concrete, or gravel buildings. I am now engaged in building a store in 
that way. Much of the land here is beautiful and rich, though there is a scarcity of 
wood and timber. It is now very dry here, there has been no rain scarcely for S or 9 


EmiL'rants are rushinj^- in nt an astunisliinu' rate, and many of them return im- 
mc'tliatcly liome. There are nmre nr less indians in the City every day, but tliey are 
l^erfectly harmless. It is now late and I am weary and must therefore close. 1 do 
not know wliether I shall stay here tlirough the season, or not, it will depend very 
much on what word I ^et from home. I trust you will be faithful and obedient to Mr. 
and Mrs. Aldrich, and remember your Creator now in the days of your youth, before 
the evil day3 come, and the years draw ni'^h in which you shall say I have no pleasure 
in them. Remember me to Mr. and Mrs. Aldrich. May the blessinf^ of Gf)d rest 
I p,)n y(.u, that your life may be preserved, that you may become a K<"'d and useful 
man. My health is j^ood except a little lameness in my back. 

From your affectionate father, 

\Vm. Marshall. 
P. S. 

Last evening I attended the first wedding that was ever attended in this place. 
It took place in the house where I lodge, which is about 16 feet square. There is

86. MARTHA' MARSHALL was unmarried. For many years 
.she lived with her brother (84) Dea. Wm. Marshall in Fitchburg, 
Mass., and in the early seventies she went to live in the home of George 
H. Christy in Sewickley, Penn. The Fitchburg Sentinel says of her: 
"'Aunt Martha' was a gentle, lovable woman of most exemplary charac- 
ter, who quietly and unobtrusively labored to make the world better for 
her being in it, and was a ministering angel, full of good deeds and 
kindly words in the various families where her lot was cast." She d. 
at the home of relatives in Sewickley, Pa. 

In one of her letters to a niece she says : " Our honorable John 
Marshall came over in the 17th century and I think that there is no 
doubt but those who came later belonged to the same original family, the 
the Southern Marshalls disclaim relation to the Eastern, but they have 
the same family name as John, Benjamin, Thomas, and a striking resem- 
blance in face." In another letter she says, " Of Zachariah Marshall, 
his father and my father were brothers. He married Caroline Putnam, 



sister to Mary Putnam, a much prized school teacher ; another sister, 
Martha, married Samuel Crocker, brother of Alva Crocker of Fitchburg, 

Mass. Cousin Zachariah 
with his family lived in 
Kansas some years; don't 
know where his wife died, 
but he had three daughters, 
one was standing at the 
door when a flash of light- 
ning struck her dead. Two 
daughters came back from 
Kansas ; they were school 
teachers, and one was es- 
pecially handsome. Cousin 
Zachariah's father's name 
was Samuel." This Sam- 
uel referred to is Number 
41 in our record, and his 
son Zachariah referred to 
in above letter was twice 
married. Mis obituary no- 
tice appeared in Fitch burg 
Sentinel, Nov. 12, 1891. 
He was born Nov. 12, 1807; 
by his first wife, Caroline 
Putnam, had two sons and 
two daughters. But one 
child, his daughter Annie, 
survived his death. He 
was a paper maker, and his 
sons George and James 
were also paper makers. Albert S. Marshall, b. in Lunenburg, Mass., 
May 31, 1828 ; d. in Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 16, 1910, was probably a broth- 
er of Zachariah and son of Samuel. Alkert S. Marshall left four sons, 
one, Albert A. resided in Somerville, Mass., in 1910; the others were liv- 
ing in Los Angeles. We have no complete record of (41) Samuel, and 
would be glad of any records or other information that our readers can 
furnish us. Our first information was gained from letters in (86) Martha 
Marshall's own handwriting ; to these letters the compiler of this 
book is indebted for some of the valuable material in this book. 

87. J0SP:PH' MARSHALL carried on bu.siness with his son

He was an extremely active man. Shortly before his death, he took the 
compiler of this book to the old Marshall homestead in Liuitnburg, tell- 
ing; many interesting stories of his early life on the farm and describing 
the country as it was then ; he told of their |)lanting corn when a boy, 
and then having to plant potatoes on same land because the bears came 
and got the corn. His land is about 60 rods northwest of the present 
Herbert A. Eaton house and is now covered with a heavy growth of tim-

120. GEN. JOHN MEREDITH « READ received his education 
in a military school. He commanded a corps of National cadets, which 
furnished 127 ofificers to the LTnited States army during the Civil war; 
was aide-de-camp to the governor of Rhode Island ; won the rank of 
colonel in 1855; graduated M. A. at Brown University in 1858, and 
LL. B. at the Albany Law School in 1859; ^^^ studied civil and inter- 
national law in Plurope. 

He was engaged actively in the Presidential campaign of 1856; organized 
important political movements in the Presidential campaign of 186)0; accepted 
in November of tliat year the office of Adjutant-General of the state of New York 
and won the rank of Brigadier-General at the age of 23. He was chairman of 
the Government Commission which welcomed Pre.'^ident Lincoln at Buffalo, and 
escorted him to the capitol (Feb., 1861); chairman, two months later of the commit- 
tee of three to draft a bill appropriating $3,0iJ0,000 for the purchase of arms and 
equipments ; and received the official thanks of the War Dej)artment of tlie United 
States for his energy, ability and zeal in the organization and equipment of troops dur- 
ing the war. He took a leading part in the Presidential campaign of 1868, which 
resulted in the election of General Grant, who appointed him Consul-General of the 
United States for France and Algeria, to reside at Paris. General Read likewise 
acted as Consul-General of Germany during tlie Franco-German war, and afterwards, 
for nearly two years, directing all tlie consular affairs of that empire, including the 
protection of German subjects and interests during the first and second sieges of 
Paris (1870-71). Both sides acknowledged that General Read's consenting to con- 
tinue to act as Consul-General, with the thirty-five Consuls and Consular agents under 


liim, prexcntL'd lliL- po-isihility of a rL-iit-vval of tlie conflict between tlie two countrie;^ 
by renderin<j; unnecessary tlu- i)resence in France of German consular otticials, at a 
time when the mind of the Krencli ])e()])le was highly excited against all (Germans. 
At this period the German ambassador, in a letter to General Read, said : " I ( ann:)! 
omit to express to you once more, the sentiments of gratitude with which I am ins[)ired 
by the persevering solicitude which you have never ceased to manifest in procuring 
for my compatriots the protection of the laws." For this service he received the 
commendation of the President of the United Stales in his annual message to Con- 
gress; the repeated thanks of the German Government, and the olificial and personal 
thanks and compliments of Prince Bismarck. In 1872 he was invited by General de 
Cissey, French Minister of War, to form and preside over a commission to examine 
into the expediency of extending the study of the English language in the French 
army, and for his successful labours in this direction he received the thanks of the 
French (iovernment. In recognition of his various distinguished services he was 
promoted, in November, 1873, to be the United States Minister resident in Greece. Since 
then he has received the thanks of his Government for his ability and energy in secur- 
ing the release of the American ship "Armenia," and for his successful efforts in 
obtaining from the Greek Government a revocation of the order prohibiting the sale 
and circulation of the Bible in Greece ; he also received the thanks of the Board of 
Foreign Missions of the Southern Presbyterian Church, and of the British and Ameri- 
can Foreign Bitle Societies, for the latter important service. General Read revisited 
his native country in 1874, and was received with the warmest demonstrations of 
welcome by all political parties, banquets being given in his honor at New York, 
Albany, Philadelphia, and Washington. For his literary and scientific services he 
has received the thanks of the State Department of the United States, of the National 
Academy of Design, of the English F2ast India Company, of the Russia Company, of 
the Society of Antiquaries of London, of the Archaeological Society of Greece, and of 
the French Academy. In 1867 he was named Founder of the Royal Society of 
Northern Antiquaries by the Prince Royal of Denmark. He took a deep interest in 
the foundation of the French Association for the Advancement of Science. He was 
President of the American Social Science Congress at Albany in 1868, and a \'ice- 
President of the British Social Science Congress at Plymouth in 1872. He is an hon- 
orary Fellow or member of a great number of learned bodies in Europe and America, 
and the author of several learned works which have achieved a high reputation, and 
of many public addresses and official repcjrts. General Read received the thanks of 
his Government for his prompt and efficient protection of American persons and in- 
terests in the dangerous crisis in Greece in February, 1878." From Biography pub- 
lished in " Men of the Time," 10th edition, 1879, George Routledge & Sons, London

her parents in Boston until about five years old, when they removed to 
New York city, and later to Chappaqua, N. Y., where they were the 
friends and neighbors of Horace Greeley and his family. In youth she 
enjoyed great social advantages, not only at home, but from the age of 
twelve years until her marriage, she was a frequent visitor, often for 
long intervals in the home of her aunt, Mrs. Horatio Bridge ; sometimes 
in Washington, and sometimes elsewhere, as the duties of a navy 
officer demanded change of residence. In this home she was associated 
with the most cultured Americans and the honored representatives of 
many foreign courts, gaining an ease of manner and a breadth of senti- 
ment, which, added to her natural charms, made her a welcome guest in 
any company. She was much interested in genealogical matters, and 

made many notes on all 
branches of her family ; 
she became a member of 
the Colonial Dames of 
America through twenty- 
six ancestors; a member 
of the Mayflower Society, 
eleven of her ancestors 
coming on that ship ; also 
a member of the Society 
of " P'ounders and Patri- 
ots," Jan., 1909. She was 
the Founder and Regent 
of Tioga Chapter, D. A, R. 
of Athens, Pa., and a me- 
morial booklet printed 
after her death shows in 
what love and esteem she 
was held by her associ- 
ates. Her life was full 
of good deeds, generous 
counsel, loving sympathy 
and sweet comradeship ; 
she was a leader, a work- 
er, an inspiration always.

Its wreath of oak upon the blessed grave 
The stars watch calmly, as they watched of old 
The mighty souls she reverenced ; and the wave 
Of whispering rivers keeps her name of gold 
Linked with the names of dearest, wisest, best 
Of women, shrined in love's eternal rest. G. O. H.' '

124. GEORGE OTIS« HOLBROOKE was educated most care- 
fully at private schools and by tutors in Boston ; was a remarkable 
scholar, especially proficient in languages, and, after graduating from col- 
lege at 18 years of age, was offered and occupied the chair of Modern 
Languages at Trinity College (Hartford). He early began to write both 
prose and poetry for periodicals ; has been a great traveler, spending 
much time in Europe. A few years ago he lost the greater part of his 


right hand ; caught in machinery in Harpers Brothers vv^orks. This 
accident, together with increasing years and broken health, would have 
laid many men upon the shelf, but not so for George Otis Holbrooke. 
The Methodist Episcopal Mission at Vikarabad, Deccan, India, needed 
just such a man, and he resolutely put aside all thought of self and gave 
himself to this work. There he is accomplishing marvels, not only as a 
teacher and leader in the schools for boys, but in almost every line of 
mission activities, even to editing their papers, typewriting their letters, 
composing their songs and hymns and leading their choirs. To see all 
this done by a man with but one hand, seems to these simple ICast Indian 
people a true miracle, performed daily under their own eyes, and they 
call him, " Brother of Christ the man of the One Hand." Exceedingly 
handsome, an unusual elegance of manner, and a high degree of 
personal magnetism, combine to make him an attractive personality. 
For such a man to give up his luxurious home and go to far away India ; 
live as they do there ; give not only himself, but nine-tenths of his in- 
come to the work, is indeed a Christ-like self-sacrifice. The Marshall 
family has reason to love, honor, and admire George Otis Holbrooke.

137. ABIGAIL' WHITE did not go to Vermont with her parents, 
but worked in the family of Willard Carpenter in Surry, N. H., and at- 
tended school at the north end of the town, where her future husband, 
William Carpenter also attended. They were married in Walpole, N. H., 
by Rev. Mr. Burnham, May 2, 1838, and were the parents of fifteen 
children. Their entire married life of over 49 years was passed in his 
native town, Surry, where she died July 20, 1887. A Surry item in the 
New England Observer of Keene is a worthy tribute to a noble woman, 
and we copy it entire : " The many friends in Surry and elsewhere will 
hear with profound regret and sincere sorrow of the death of Mrs. Abi- 
gail Carpenter, which occured last week Wednesday. She leaves to 


mourn her loss a husband in feeble health and fourteen children. They 
were all but two (Jasper and Myra) present at the funeral which occurred 
last Saturday. Rev. G. H. DeBevoise ofificiated. Those whose privile"-e 
it was to be admitted to the circle of friends will lonj; remember Mrs. 
Carpenter and will recall to memory very often her pure and beautiful 
character, as a noble woman, a refined and cultivated lady, and a true 
Christian. We may say of her without undue praise, ' she was the white 
flower of an unsullied life,' and with reverent hearts and faith we believe 
she has already received from the divine Master, the welcome ' Well 
done, good and faithful servant,' and that her entrance into heavenly 
rest is gracious and complete." 

One of her children's memories of her mother is of often hearin'>- 
her sing about her work the beautiful song by Phebe Cary : 

" One sweetly solemn^ht comes to me o'er and o'er : 
I'm nearer my home to-day, to-day, than I have been before." 

She was a regular attendant of the Congregational church in Surry 

Of this family of fifteen children, one only died in infancy ; the 
rest lived to manhood and womanhood and thirteen are still livino- (Dec. 
1912). On Nov. 15, 1873, all, but one, met in Keene, N. H., and were 
photographed. They were never all at home together at the same time, 
the older ones being married and with children of their own before their 
younger sisters were born. 

William Carpenter was born in Surry, Jan. 26, 1814, of Ezra and 
Betty (Chapin) * Carpenter. He was a tall and well-built man, six feet 
in height, weighing about 160 pounds ; strong and well adapted for a 
farmer, which occupation he always followed. He was fond of a joke, 
keen of wit, and his conversation was often mingled with humor. On 
March 29, 1837, he bought of his father, Ezra Carpenter, the Carpenter 
homestead on Surry hill. This farm consisted of about 150 acres. He 
also bought the buildings, stock, and tools, and one-third of pew No. 28, 
in Surry meeting-house, paying $2,000 for the entire purchase. 

They lived on this place till about Feb. ist, 1850, when they moved 
to a farm in Surry village which he had bought of Elijah Holbrook, now 
owned by William Martin. On April 2, 1850, he bought of Caleb Wright, 
the farm of 104 acres adjoining on the south side, and this was their 
home from 1871 till shortly before his death. His daughter (276) Mari- 
etta C. (Carpenter) Wright now owns his last home. 

* See Appendix, Note 5, for Carpenter record. 



Tlie old liouse was torn down by William Carpenter (No. 137) and his sons, 
Jasper H. and Mason A. in fall of 1864, and the followinff winter was sledded into the 
village where the timber and boards were used in building new buildings upon Wil- 
liam's new property. The cider mill, shop, and barn, also, which stood some ten rods 
south of the house, was bought by HoUis Wilcox, who tore them down. He used a 
horse and a sweep for power in his cider mill. The above cut is reproduced from memory. 
The large maple trees on side of the road between his two 
village homes were set out by Wm. Carpenter and his .sons in 1857. He 
was Selectman of Surry in 1846-7, and 185 1-3. At the time of his death 



he was probably the best informed man anywhere on history of Surry 
and vicinity ; in this he was especially interested. While reading with 
his favorite glimmer — the candle — one evening in 1886, the light got 
into a squabble with his long, flowing, dark beard which he prized, and 
"after the battle was over and the smoke had rolled away," he found his 
whiskers had been badly licked. He stated to the compiler, " he would 
rather give a dollar than have it happen." He died at the home of his 
daughter (275) Mrs. Harriet R. (Carpenter) Emmons, near the Four 
Corners in North Keene, N. H., Oct. 8, 1890, three years after the 
death of his wife.

Clark, and a descendant of the Richard Clark who came over in the 
Mayflower and whose name is found engraved on Plymouth Rock monu- 
ment. At the age of 19 Sumner Clark graduated with high honors from 
Ludlow Academy at Ludlow, Vt. He married (139) Mary Ann Watts 
White in 1842 and they lived in Shrewsbury and West Dover, Vt. till 
1857, when they went to Minnesota. He owned some mill property and 
was Justice of Peace while living in Shrewsbury. In 1870 they moved 
to St. James, Minn., and both are buried there. Of Mrs. Clark, at her death. 
The St. James Journal says, " In the death of Mrs. Clark, this city loses 
one of its earliest settlers, and a gentle, lovable woman, whose every 
acquaintance loved her, and who numbered her friends from the gray 
head to the little child. Kind-hearted she always was and unselfish, 
the world is better that she lived in it." 

Sumner C. Clark built the first building erected in St. James on 
the site now occupied by Gibbs Hotel. He held many offices of trust 
and honor ; was county surveyor and county commissioner of Blue Earth 
County for a number of terms. In 1868 he was admitted to the Bar, 
and was at one time Judge of Probate of Watonwan County. He was 
Justice of Peace in both Vermont and Minnesota. He d. Oct. 28, 1895,

Hudson, Ohio, in 1864; he graduated from Western Reserve College 
of Hudson in 1859; taught school till 1865, when he became a farmer and 
writer for Agricultural papers. In 1880 he was chosen Secretary of 
the Ohio State Board of Agriculture, and he moved to Columbus. His 
most important work has been the organizing of the Farmers' Institute 
in the various counties of the state, and widely adopted elsewhere. In 
1886 he was elected Pres. of the Agricultural College of Iowa, but he 
resigned this office in 1891 and returned to his farm in Hudson, where 
he still lives. From 1892 to 1908 he was Associate Editor of the " Ohio 
F'armer." He is now connected in the same capacity with the " National 
Stockman." Mrs. Chamberlain made a trip abroad in the winter of 
1908, visiting London, Paris, Marseilles, Monte Carlo, Rome, Naples and 
Pompeii, Venice, Genoa, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Cambridge, Oxford, 
and many other places of interest. She has written most entertainingly 
of her travels and we wish there were space to copy her letters entire. 
She has shown much interest in this Marshall Family Record and 
given valued assistance to its compiler.

days service ; he re-enlisted and was commissioned an officer in a regi- 
ment of colored troops, and served till about six months after the war. 
He was in the siege of Richmond, and after the assassination of Pres.

153. GEORGE EDWARD » MARSHALL was about 5 years

moved to Colerain, Mass., and lived in that vicinity and Brattleboro, 
Vt. for many years. George Edward Marshall went to Fitchburg, Mass.,

discharged at Camp Stephens, Ayer Junction, Mass., Aug., 1863, and 
returned to Fitchburg where he became a stationary engineer ; being 
with the Fitchburg Machine Co. for thirty-three consecutive years, till

Henry N. Marshall. The last six years of his life he made his home 


with his brother (156) Joseph Turner Marshall at Marshall's Corner, 
Westminster, Mass. His death came after a short illness of pneumonia, 
while on a visit to his son (307) Fred A. in Fitzwilliam, N. H. He was 
a man known and respected by a wide circle of friends and acquaint- 
ances, quiet, peaceable and agreeable at all times ; he was much inter- 
ested in the Marshall Family records. He married first, Oct. 7, 1856, in 
Fitchburg, Mass., by Rev. Marvin, Lydia A. Henshaw of Fitchburg,

154. HENRY * AUGUSTUS* MARSHALL enlisted July 19, 
1 86 1, in 2 1 St Reg. Co. A. Mass. Vol., and was discharged Aug. 30, 1864. 
He married, Dec. i, 1869, in Fitchburg, Mass., Sarah J. Morse, b. in 
Petersham, Mass., May 3, 1839, of -^sa and Elizabeth (Goulding) Morse. 
She died in Athol, Mass., Jan. 26, 1899. He continued to live alone and 
was found dead in his chair March 14, 191 1. Death was due to heart 
disease. He was a vise maker in the euiploy of the Athol Machine Co., 
where he had been employed twenty-five years. They had no children. 

156. JOSEPH TURNER* MARSHALL enlisted as a private 
in Co. D. 2ist Reg. Mass. Vol., from Aug. 3. 1861, till Sept. 25, 1862. 
He took part in Burnside's Expedition and fought in the Battle of Roan- 
oke Island, at which time he came near being shot. As he had his arm 
raised, ramming a charge in his gun, a bullet passed under his arm, and 
hit his file closer. At the battle of Newburn he was detailed as bugler, 
and while on duty had both his canteen strap and bugle straps shot off. 
On account of sickness, he was sent to Beaufort hospital in North Car- 
olina, but joined the regiment in time to witness Pope's retreat. He was 
present at the opening of the battle of Chantilly, but fainted, and was 
taken from the field. He had been so feeble that Captain Kelton of 
Holden had carried his gun for him during the previous march, and after 
this he was not able to do service and was discharged from the Mt. 
Pleasant hospital in Washington, Sept. 23, 1862. He was an invalid 
nearly 15 years owing to a fractured hip, which he received by a fall, and 

* While in Athol he always signed his name " Henry J." Marshall. 



the last three years of his lile he was not able to step on his feet at all, 
but in spite of suffering and pain, was always cheerful and happy. He 
died at his home at " Marshall's corner," in Westminster, Mass., May 29, 
191 1, where he had lived over 26 years, and it seemed beautiful and fitting 
that he should answer the bugle call above at Memorial time. He was a 
machinist when a young man, but a farmer while in Westminster. He

married, Aug. 15, 1861, just one week before he started for the front, to 
Julia Lamb, born Nov. 3, 1843, ^t Westminster, Mass., of Augustus and 
Amanda (Partridge) Lamb. Mrs. Marshall is ex-President of Woman's 
Relief Corps of Westminster. They had no children.

enlisted in 1863 in the 57th Reg. and served through the War. He was 
engaged in the Battle of the Wilderness and in the Battle of Fort Sted- 
man, and was wounded in the battle of the Wilderness. He married in 
Lunenburg, Mass., by Rev. A. E. Higgins, April 29, i860, Mary Ann 
Conant, born March 25, 1837, in New Ipswich, N. H., of Andrew and 
Emily (Farnsworth) Conant. They had ten children, seven of whom 
were living in 1910 when their parents celebrated their golden wedding 
in No. Leominster, Mass., where they had liv^ed for 44 years. An origi- 
nal poem written by Mrs, James Appleton Marshall is a happy souvenir 
of that occasion. In it she says: 

" We were married in Lunenburg', down on the farm, 
On a Sunday afternoon, and thought it no harm. 
Ten brothers and sisters, with their companions beside. 
Witnessed the ceremony and saw the knot tied."

161. WILLIAM ISAAC^ MARSHALL began teaching at the 
age of eighteen ; in 1859 ^^ taught school in Conneaut, Ohio. He, later, 
became owner of the Capital City Business College in Columbus. Ohio, 
but sold out and went to the Montana gold field in Virginia city where 
he combined mining with his school teaching, also a Supt. of schools and 
meanwhile studying law. In 1875 he visited the gold mines of California, 
and on his return to Montana was admitted to the Bar and to the United 
States Courts. Returning in 1876 to his birthplace, Fitchburg, Mass., 
he began a series of illustrated public lectures. To him belongs the 
credit and distinction of being the original lecturer with illustrations on 
American subjects. He began his course of lectures in Jan., 1876, his 
itinerary covered almost the whole of the United States and some of 
Canada, and for a period of twelve years he gave his entire time and 
effort to the lecture platform. In 1887 he located in Chicago, and was 
in business with his brother (164) Edward Tracy Marshall. In 1894, 
he again became a teacher in the public schools, and at the time of his 
death was principal of the ''Wm. E. Gladstone school " in Chicago. 



While residing in the West he became interested in and finally drawn 
into the controversy as to the truth of the claim which for many years 

passed unchallenged that 
one, Marcus Whitman, an 
early missionary to the 
West, and for whom W^hit- 
man College is named, had, 
by an adventurous and 
hazardous journey in the 
rigors of midwinter, crossed 
mountain and plain, and 
spanned our continent to 
inform the chief magistrate 
of the U. S. at Washington, 
D. C, of a conspiracy un- 
der way by the Hudson 
Bay Co., and English Gov-' 
ernment to obtain posses- 
sion of Oregon Territory, 
about one twelfth of the 
entire area of the United 
States. It is through ( 161) 
William I. Marshall's 
labors in refutation of this 
historical error that he will be known to readers of history in generations 
to come. Four large volumes of type written manuscript show the re- 
sult of his research and investigations. He was a member of the Ameri- 
can Historical Association and of the National Geographical Society. 
He died Oct. 30, 1906, in Chicago, 111. Aug. 20, 1864, he married in 
Fitchburg, Mass., Ellen Porter Foster, b. May 10, 1843, in Ashby, Mass., of 
Joseph and Harriet Eliza (Gibson) Foster. Mrs. Ellen Foster Marshall has 
shown deep interest in the Marshall Family Record and has given 
most valuable assistance to the compiler. Her daughter, also, was much 
interested, and, before her illness, gathered together many items and 
dates for this book. The only child of William and Ellen Marshall,

270. ELLEN MARIA « GARPENTER was b. on the old Car- 
penter homestead in Surry, N. H., and can relate most interesting stories 
of farm life and childhood days. The cider mill where her father made 
cider, using a horse on a sweep to do the grinding; the building where 
there was always plenty of butternuts ; the old barn, and the sugar-house 
nearby, made a happy environment for her younger days. While here, 
she went to school in the same building that her parents had attended. 
Later they moved to the village and .she attended the village school, 
where one winter term there were over seventy scholars packed into the 
little school house later destroyed by fire ; after leaving school, she 
worked in Surry and Keene, and Millbury, Mass., till her marriage. She 
has been much interested and most diligent in procuring records and 
hunting up information for this book, and, to her, the compiler is grate- 
fully indebted for the reproduced cut of the Ezra Carpenter homestead 
on page 38.

months of the war, his 
regiment was near 
Washington, D. C, in 
the defences about 
the city; he saw the 
body of Pres. Abraham Lincoln as it lay in state in the Capitol Rotunda. 
In March 1866, he moved his family to Georgetown, Ottawa Co., Mich.,

271. DR. JASPER HAZEN« CARPENTER worked in a 
stave shop in the village of Swanzey Factory, N. H., from Mar. i to 
June I, 1865. On Monday, Aug. 14, 1865, he and George B. Kingsbury 
of Surry, N. H., started for Michigan 
and arrived in Grand Rapids Aug. 16. 
His first work as a wood turner at 
Turnum & Buddington furniture shop 
brought him $20 per month, while he 
paid ^4 per week for board at the 
Michigan House. He went to the 
town of Bowne in July, 1866, and was 
employed as a wood turner in the shop 
of David Ruckel, which stood about 
ten rods south of the present grist mill 
of George Nagler & Son, on Little 
Thorn Apple Creek, near the village 
of Freeport. May 31, 1867, he settled 
on a*40-acre farm which he purchased 
of his father-in-law, John Roush, and 
which he has since owned and where 
he now resides. At that time this 
land was covered with a heavy growth 
of hard wood timber, except about one 
acre, which had been cut down by Perry McCarty, who had lived there a 
short time and built a small hut 12 x 14 feet. Jasper H. Carpenter 
built a new dwelling 14 x 20 ft., in the summer of 1868, a few feet south 
of the old hut, and in 190 1 a modern house was erected some 5 rods 

No. 271. 


north of his first dwelling. In 1870, in company with Samuel and 
Michael Roush, his brothers-in-law, he built a saw mill on Little Thorn 
Apple Creek, near the present Freeport Creamery building. They dug a 
long canal to get head for this mill. The old ditch is still visible in many 
places. He soon sold this property, moved to Morgan, Barry Co., and 
became interested in another mill, but both mills were lost by fire, and 
he returned to his farm in Bowne. During the summer of 1867, he 
worked in his father-in-law's cornfield, which was where the village of 
Freeport is now built. 

In Sept. 1887, at the age of 43, with only a common school education, 
he entered the Chicago Homeopathic Medical College, from which he 
was graduated Mar. 18, 1890, with the degree of M. D. He returned to 
Michigan, and has practised his profession in Morgan, Manistee, and 
Benzie counties, and in 1893 located in Saginaw, where he was asso- 
ciated with Dr. John F. Ruckel for one year, when he returned to 
Freeport, where he had a large and successful practice and also served 
on Board of Health till ill health caused him to retire, and he returned to 
his old farm again in 1906, where he still lives. He m. Nov. 27, 1866,

As compiler and printer of the first Marshall Family Record he should 
be gratefully remembered by all descendants of the Marshall family. Just a quarter 
of a century ago, in 1887, he issued an 18 page pamphlet and freely distributed copies 
among those interested ; his records date back to 1632, were carefully gathered and 
compiled from Martha Marshall's M.S.S., and are usually reliable and accurate. 
For his work as genealogist we owe his memory kind and grateful tlioughts. As a man 
and citizen, there is no doubt of the high place he held, and we wish it were possible 
to print entire the eloquent words written in memoriam of his death. From the Busi- 
ness Men's Association of St. James, we quote briefly: " He was a man whom it was 
an honor to know ; he was an honor to his profession, and his life was such as to make 
him an exemplary citizen and a valuable member of society. His presence was 
everywhere welcomed, and his personal modesty and retiring disposition could not 
prevent his true merits from being discovered and properly estimated. He was ever 
ready to assist in helping any public enterprise, and much bears the impress of Jiis 
energetic push as an efficient manager. His probity, courtesy and kindness endeared 
him to a large circle of friends. His character was manly, his life was true, and a 
painful death admitted him to heavenly rest. To his afflicted family we extend our 
sincere sympathy, and to his little ones we can point out no more worthy example than 
the manly, independent record made by their father."

292. HERBERT WILLIAM^ CHAMBERLAIN inherited arti.s- 
tic and architectural tendencies and tastes. In 1885 he won the Ohio 
prize for best architectural drawing by any High School pupil in the 
state. After graduating with high rank from the Iowa State college of 
Agriculture and Mechanic Arts he found employment in the ofifice of 
the great Chicago architects, Burnham & Root. From Mr. Root's brain 
sprang "The Great White City" (The World's Fair) in all its chief 
details just as it was finally realized. It is a proud memory that this 
greatest of architectural originators since Bell & Richardson once said to 
young Chamberlain's father, " Your son, sir, is a young man of remark- 
able promise as an architect." 

After the close of The World's Fair, he went to the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology and took the four years in two years, taking the 
honors representing his class in architecture on the commencement stage 
at graduation and winning the architectural scholarship which made pos- 
sible a post-graduate year's work. In September, 1898, he married Miss 


Marian L. Lewis, a fellow-graduate in architecture, and on Oct. ist, they 
sailed for Europe under an honorary foreign fellowship from the Insti- 
tute, intending to spend a year or two in higher study in art and archi- 
tecture. After not quite seven months abroad, on May lo, 1899, he was 
taken ill and on May 26, died in Siena, Italy, and the bright promise of 
a life of distinguished service in his chosen profession was at an end. 
He left no children.

318. ELLEN FOSTERS MARSHALL when two years of age 
went with her mother to Montana by the Mississippi River route (then 
requiring six weeks of steamboating from Sioux City, Iowa, to P'ort 
Benton, and thence 300 miles of stage-coach travel). Her parents later 
lived in Fitchburg, Mass., and she graduated from the High School there 
in June 1885. In 1887 they moved to Chicago, where for four years she 
was secretary of the National Society of Household Economics ; western 
director of the Women's Unitarian Alliance, and secretary of the Chi- 
cago Branch of the Alliance, and for ten years in charge of the postoffice 
mission work. So widespread was her philanthropic and charitable 
work that the news that her loving heart and active brain and willinsf 
hands had ceased from their earthly labors brought bitter sorrow to 
many a family she had helped, not only in Chicago, but on the prairies 
in Illinois and Oklahoma and Nebraska and the Dakotas ; in the mighty 
forests of fir along Puget Sound and in the pine woods of the Carolinas; 
on lonely ranches in California, and in mining camps of Wyoming and 
Montana. The compiler of this book here records his appreciation of 
most generous and helpful assistance in gathering material and data for 
this book.

moved to Gloucester on or before 1642. His wife d. Aug. 16, 1693, and he d. Aug. 20, 
1693. His will was proved Sept. 4, 1693 ; in it he willed to his wife Mary, the use for 
life time of the north-east end of his dwelling house ; all his household goods, except 
his fire arms and edge tools, and all other tools and utensils that are used for husbandry, 
ten (10) pounds yearly ; two (2) cows, and sufficient wood. To his son, William^, one 
half of his farm in Bradford, Mass., and various tracts of land in Gloucester. Estate

Walker, after her step-father, Henry Walker) b. July 28, 1649, at Gloucester, of Wm. 
and Mar)- (Robinson) Brown, who came from England in the ship " Love'' in July 
1635, d. Nov. 12, 1715. He left an estate of £666-6-3. Ch. were : Mary^, William^

HENRY" HASKELL, m. Jan. 13, 1703, Ruth (York, perhaps) and was dis- 
missed to the church in Harvard, Mass., in 1735. His wife died there June 16, 1749, 
aged about 67 years. They had ch. : Ruth^ Mary*, Henry*, Jr., b. June 5, 1706, at 
Gloucester, d. Apr. 1, 1779, Ruth*, Sarah*, Samuel*, Lydia*. 

HENRY* HASKELL, JR., m., 1731, Huldah Smith, and they were dismissed

Ruth^, Abraham^, b. Nov. 16, 1745, in Lancaster, Mass., d. Dec. 13, 1833, in Ashby, 

DR. ABRAHAM* HASKELL studied under Rev. Mr. Harrington of Lan- 
caster, Mass., and Israel Atherton, M. D., the latter one of the most noted practi- 
tioners in the county at that time. Dr. Haskell began practice in Lunenburg under 
the patronage of Dr. John Taylor, and remained in Lunenburg till Dec. 1810. In 
these years he was frequently called in consultation 15 and 20 miles and even farther. 
From Lunenburg he went to Leominster where he continued in practice till he was 
nearly 80 years old, and he even retained a good share of his business till he was 87, 
when he was induced to go and live with his son, who had some time before removed 
to Ashby, Mass. He was above the ordinary stature and size, five feet and ten inches 
in height, well proportioned, rather muscular, but considered a handsomely formed 
man ; his walk easy and portly ; his head a little inclining forward, indicative of his 
contemplative and deep thinking mind. His physical constitution was robust and firm. 
He could endure watching and fasting beyond the ability of most men ; it seemed a 
matter of indifference with him whether he slept none or several hours during the 


night, or ate one or three meals in 24 hours, provided he was professionally engaged. 
The great object of his life was to alleviate the sufferings and subdue the diseases of 
his fellow creatures. " To do good and to communicate" was his governing principle. 
He was a member of the Massachusetts Medical Society and received the honorary 
degree of M. D. from Harvard College. He was married three times: 1st Sarah, 
dau. of Peter and Abigail Green of Lancaster, Mass. ; b. May 29, 1752 ; d. Apr. l.S,

burg, Mass. ; d. May 12, 1804; 3rd, Experience, dau. of Samuel Jackson, and widow 
of John Cotton of Plymouth, Mass. : d. at Ashby, Mass., Dec. 13, 1835. 

Sarah Haskell, the first born child of Dr. Abraham and Sarah (Green) Haskell, 
was born Feb. 18, 1775, and was the wife of David Marshall, No. 42. 


READ. The Read family sprang from a younger son of the very ancient Berk- 
shire, Hertfordshire, and Oxfordshire house, seated, says Sir Walter Scott, a thousand 
years ago in Northumbria, to which belonged the Reads (now extinct), baronets of 
Brocket Hall, and from which descended the baronets of Shipton, and the Reads of 
Ipsden House. The first American Ancestors, whose father, a staunch cavalier, took 
an active part for King Charles L in the Civil wars, purchased a manorial grant in 
the province of Maryland from Lord Baltimore. It is a remarkable fact that this 
family contributed three signers of the Declaration of Independence, and four 
framers and signers of the Constitution of the United States. General Read's (No. 
120) great-grandfather, the Hon. George Read oi Deleware, one of the fathers and 
founders of the American Republic, originally held office under the Crown, as Attorney 
General, and afterwards wasoneof the six signersof the Declaration of Independence, 
who were also framers and signersof the Constitution of the LTnited States. His 
grandfather, the Hon. John Read, was a Senator of Pennsylvania, the American 
diplomatic agent under the Treaty of Amity with Great Britain in 1794, and the 
author of " British Debts." His father, (No. 74 of this book) was one of the most 
distinguished jurists that America has produced, and at one time was prominently 
named as a candidate for the Presidency of the United States. From " Men of the
