Title: Marriage Index or License
Note: o 1830 when he showed up in the census in Richmond, Virginia. In checking the previous census for records of him, I found a JOHN MARSHALL (white), living in 1820 Richmond, Virginia, Image 34, as head of a household that included slaves both male and female, over the age of 45. This could possibly be the family that was referred to in the will of SARAH MARSHALL in 1821 Warren County, North Carolina, which mentions that DAVID MARSHALL was a "free man of color", perhaps newly freed at the time. It is likely that SARAH MARSHALL was a relative, perhaps his aunt, or even his mother, since most of the people she left bequests to were referred to as "belonging to ..." someone, the exceptions being her brothers. Another possibility is that SARAH was related to the THOMAS MARSHALL family, who lived in Halifax County, NC, and seemed to have had a very colorful life, which could possibly help explain the relationships between SARAH MARSHALL & the enslaved people referred to in her will. (See further details in the file of THOMAS MARSHALL, which I have added just as a reference point). Further info is that ISAAC MITCHELL, the bondsman for the marriage between DAVID MARSHALL & PATIENCE EVANS, was listed in 1820 Warren Co.,NC, Warrenton, Image 13, as FCP, age 14 -26, living alone, a few doors from BENNET KING and WILLIAM C. KING, both white. ISAAC MITCHELL also shows as bondsman for the Sept. 12, 1816 marriage between WILLIE GORDON & EVELING MAYO in Warren Co. Another interesting thing I found was in the "Freedman's Bank Records, 1865-1874", where a record of EDWARD MARSHALL, shows his parents as DAVY & PLEASANT MARSHALL, as below:
Name: Edward Marshall Age: 32 Account Date: Feb Spouses's Name: Louisa [Marshall] Father's Name: Davy Marshall Mother's Name: Pleasant [Marshall] Birth County: Portsmouth Birth State: Virginia Children: Wm, Edward Siblings: Davy, Alfred, Jno, Wm, Rebecca, Fannie, Phebe
I am wondering if this could be the right family, the only thing throwing off a definite answer is the name of their mother. It is possible, I suppose, that there was a mistranscription of the mother's name on this document, PLEASANT & PATIENCE aren't that far apart when written out. This needs more investigation. =============================== What follows are a series of entries for THOMAS MARSHALL, identified by Paul Heinegg (www.freeafricanamericans.com) as possibly the same person who was living in Charles City County in 1758, a white planter who married a mulatto woman, ANNE PERLE, in Prince Georges Co.,Maryland sometime prior to August 1743; where THOMAS was sentenced to be sold for 7 years. He later turned up in Halifax County, for which records I am quoting here. Perhaps sometime in the future, I , or someone else, may find this info useful in further research of this MARSHALL family.
