Mr. Marsh was a former resident of the State of Connecticut, and became a Michigan pioneer in 1853. He was identified
soon after his arrival with the interests of the village of Allegan, having purchased the hotel known as the “Exchange,”
which was for a period of nine years under his management. In 1862 he relinquished the duties of host for the congenial
pursuits of a farmer. The land in the township to which he removed was wholly unimproved on his advent, but very
speedily yielded to the axe and the plow. Mr. Marsh has continued its cultivation since that time, and is fast
developing one of the most attractive estates in Manlius. His industry and energy are being well rewarded.
