    The name arched across the top is "Martin Marshall." The rest of the text is:


    Born
    December 7, 1749
    Died
    September 19, 1834


    The tombstone of his wife, Eleanor,is next to his to the left. Hers was broken but still readable at the time I visited the graveyard in the 1990's.

    This cemetery is six miles north of Winston Salem in Stokes County, North Carolina. Drive up Baux Mountain Road until you reach Dusty Trail on the right. Go down Dusty Trail until you come to the end of the road. The cemetery is about 100 yards further on in the woods.
    (David W. Marshall, Sr.)

  • Notes 
    • !Marshall 0001; Marshall 0002; Marshall 0019, 0020, & 0021 - Martin was married twice. I have no information about his first wife, but they had two sons, William and James.
      !Martin is buried in the family cemetary; go down "Dusty Trail" off Baux Mountain Road in Forsyth County, NC. I have visited his grave site. [DWM-1993]
      !Marshall 0043, pg. 2 - Letter from Nancy Lynn (Marshall) Reu.
      !Marshall 0152 - This source gives his first wife's name as Susanna Basel. I can find no basis for this, but there are other Marshalls who think that might have been her name.
      !Marshall 0163, p. 1 - Letter from Michael Marshall. He speculates that Martins first wife might have been names Sarah Boswell. There are family stories that his first wife was Sarah Basil. Michael says that he has seen Boswell spelled several different ways similar to Basil. If that speculation eventually shows merit, that it is possible that Martin's first wife could have been Eleanor's (his second wife's) sister.

      According to the documentation beow Martin's first name was William. I Have no other confirmation about this. (DWM)

      Subj: Martin Marshall Date: 04/16/00 12:08:04 AM Eastern Daylight Time From: michaelmarsha88@hotmail.com (mike marshall) To: DMarsh1041@aol.com David- This is just a rough guess. Rough is a key word. I have a paper from family that documents itself as; Hall of Records - Annapolis Md Liber#27 Folio #317. Va. Col. Abstracts Sev. 2-5, York Co Va. 1657-1659. pg. 45 & pg. 30 V Ser2 Va. Colonial Record Pg 510 & 512. Va Colonial Rec. vol Ser. 2 Northumberland, Co Va p 431 & 78. Mar. 19, 1706-1707. Census of Md. William Marshall son of Richard married Eleanor Boswell. See previous fax. Rootsweb - Phillip Hatcher W. Martin Marshall 1749-1824 married Eleanor Boswell. Rootsweb - Decendants of John Montgomery. Martin Marshall, Will 1824 Stokes Co., Nc ,2nd wife Eleanor Boswell. Moved Albermarle co, Va to Stokes Co. in 1798. (Same year Richard Died) Rootsweb - Phillip Hatcher W. Martin Marshall Marriage 1 Sarah Basal Marriage 2 Eleanor Boswell Rootsweb Brenda Marshall Inman Martin Wells Marshall 1790 in Va 10 nov 1871 Father Martin Marshall Married Eleanor Boswell Rootsweb - Billy Markland Martin Wells Marshall b. 1789 d.1871 11/28/1814 Volunterred for service with Capt. John L. Houser's .Company of infantry, 5th Regiment of NC Milita. Rate of pay was 8.00/month. Discharged on 2/22/1815 at Norfolk, Va. --Source Della Marshall Jones "The Marshalls of House and Barn Mountain". I think Martin Wells Martin maybe the son of William Martin Marshall who Married Eleanor Boswell. If I can figure out if W.M. Marshall and brother Richards dad was actually Richard Thomas Marshall I think I have this link licked. What do you think. MM
