    Larry: I have gobs of info on the children of John and Elizabeth Marshall. Some of it was compiled by an earlier ancestress ( is there such a word as ancestress?) I have added to it over the years. Have been to the cemetery in Enon Valley years ago and took pix. Don’t know if those are what you have or if you made the trip yourself. Right now I can’t remember which daughter married a Patrick Doran, but I think I found him listed as a prisoner in Navarro County, Texas in the 1880 census. If you look it up , let me know what you think. Will contact you later with more.

      Hi Kay,
      Please excuse the delay as I’ve been gone a few days. All your info is good, and I’m looking forward to anything else you have on our Marshalls. Can any of it be scanned and attached to an e-mail? I found your reference to the Dorans in GGrandpa Joseph’s will (1858-1939) where he gives niece Alice Doran $700:
      Obviously, she must have been one of his sibling’s daughters, but I don’t have much on his family and whom the sisters married. As you can see the Patrick name is plentiful back in Ireland.
      I am using your photo from the Enon Cemetery as I’ve never been there. Maybe this summer? Let me know if you get to Western PA. Any comments, corrections, and additions to my posted Marshall stuff is VERY welcome. Please stay in touch.
      Cousin Larry
