Biography of Henry L. Marshall
Howard County, IN Biographies





HENRY L. MARSHALL was born in Henry County, Ind., in 1845. His parents, James and Rachel (Leeson) Marshall, were of German and Irish descent. Henry L. moved to this county with his parents in 1849, and landed where the town of Sycamore now stands. His father entered 160 acres of land in Liberty Township, about three miles north of where Greentown now stands. Our subject has spent his whole life in clearing and improving land. He lived at home with his father until he was about twenty four years of age, and was married in 1869 to Miss Elizabeth Powell, of Jackson Township. Her parents were among the pioneers and early settlers of the county, coming in when all was a wilderness. Mr. and Mrs. Marshall have had seven children - Lewis E., Rosella M., James L., Arsetta A. (deceased), Ora E., Melven E. and Chancy H. Our subject purchased eighty acres of good land in Jackson Township, in 1882, and now has a good farm, well cultivated and improved. Mr. Marshall's grandfather, Samuel Marshall, was a soldier in the war of 1812.
