Louisa County, IA Biographies





LLOYD MARSHALL.
For more than seventy years the name of Marshall has been actively identified with the agricultural development of Louisa county, the family continuing to be represented in the person of Lloyd Marshall. He was born in this county on the 15th of May, 1862, and is a son of James H. and Nancy (Sellers) Marshall. His paternal grandfather, Lloyd Marshall, for whom Marshall township was named, came to Louisa county in 1838 and settled about a quarter of a mile west of the village of Cairo. Among his children were Eleanor, who became the wife of Newton Sellers; James Marshall, who married Nancy Sellers; Mary, the wife of Erastus Weaver; John S.; and Robert, who is a resident of Colorado. Of the union of James H. and Nancy Marshall were born six children: Alva, who is a resident of Louisa county; Hayes, who is deceased; Laura, the wife of Dave Brown, of Columbus City township; Lloyd, our subject; Sherman, who is deceased; and the eldest, who died in infancy.

Upon the completion of his education which was acquired in the common schools of this county, Lloyd Marshall began in life as a farmer, which vocation he has ever since followed. He now owns ninety seven and a half acres of land in Marshall township, where he is engaging in general farming and stock raising, his efforts in this direction meeting with very good returns.

Mr. Marshall was united in marriage on the 23d of January, 188o, to Miss Annie Ireton, a daughter of Obadiah and Elizabeth (Mottsinger) Ireton. Of the six children born unto Mr. and Mrs. Ireton, but two, besides Mrs. Marshall, are now surviving: William, the eldest, who is a resident of Columbus City; and Jennie the wife of Frank Huffman, of South Dakota. Those deceased are: Joseph, Spencer and Cora. Mr. and Mrs. Marshall never having had any children of their own have adopted a son, James Hilton Marshall, who is now ten years of age.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Marshall are earnest Christians and in polities he always gives his support to the republican party, considering that its policy is best adapted to subserve the interests of the majority. He is highly regarded in the community where he has so long resided, and is known to be one who ever strives to be loyal to the highest principles of life in all of his relations, both public and private.
