Biography of N. Monroe Marshall
Franklin County, NY Biographies





N. Monroe Marshall was born in Schuyler Falls, N. Y., June 13, 1854, and his home conditions were such that he was compelled to fend for himself from the age of fourteen years, from which time he worked for six years at the machinists' trade. In 1874 he beeaine telegraph operator and, station agent for the Chateagay R. R., and a little later came to Chateaugay Lake to be bookkeeper for the Chateaugay Ore and Iron Co. While so employed he lost his right arm at the shoulder by the accidental discharge of his gun, but in six weeks after his return to his desk was able to write as legible and handsome a hand as any employer would care to have appear on his books. He served Bellmont as supervisor in 1885, and the same year, after a memorable canvass, was nominated as a Republican for county clerk. He served six years in the office, and then was with the Fidelity and Casualty Company until 1895 as adjuster of claims, visiting nearly every State in the Union. In 1895 he became vice president and manager of the Farmers National Bank of Malone, and in 1896 transferred his services to the People's National Bank of Malone, having been elected vice president of that institution upon the appointment of Frederick D. Kilburn to be State superintendent of banks. In 1899 he was elected president, and still continues in the same capacity with a fine record of successful management, deposits having increased in the period by nearly $400,000, and the gain in surplus and undivided profits having been $316,500. Mr. Marshall was elected to the State Senate as a Republican by the Franklin-St. Lawrence district in 1914, and reelected in 1916. His cornmittee assiguments in that body have been of the first order for a new member, and his standing with his colleagues and on the record is of the best. His sound business judgment, his certainty in aligning himself always on the right side on both party and purely public measures, his camaraderie, his readiness of wit, and his genius for invariably having a corking good story peculiarly apropos to any situation have made him one of the most popular and influential of the Senators.
