In need of Monroe Co. help! - Marshall family, Honeoye Falls

Surnames: Marshall,
My dear friends of Monroe County,

I am writing in hopes that someone might be able to help me finally solve an important missing link in my family history (the line from which I have received my last name). My predicament is as follows:

I know that I descend through Lyman Marshall, born abt. 1826 in Monroe. He died in 1892. Both his son and grandson that are my ancestors also lived in the Honeoye Falls/Rush/Mendon/East and West Bloomfield areas, and many are buried in the Honeoye Falls cemetery.

The problem:

I have no idea who the parents of Lyman Marshall are. However, I do have a suspicion. Through a series of deductions, it seems to me that my ancestor is a certain Norris Marshall, who died in 1830 at a young age. My next suspicion is that Norris is the son of Abijah Marshall. These deductions are based on censuses, all being buried in the Honeoye Falls cemetery, and a g-grandfather's brother being named Lyman Norris Marshall.

The plea!:
Is there anyone in the area that knows of a way to confirm this suspicion? I would really appreciate any help I can get, as I am currently a student in Virginia who will not likely have the means to make a trip to New York soon.

Thank you for any help,
