My name is Bradford Marshall Fields and I am researching the Marshall side of my family. According to my research, Alfred and Hannah are part of my family tree. I would appreciate any information you could provide on the Woody's & Marshalls in North Carolina.

I have the following information;
Alfred III MARSHALL was born 1806 in NC, and died 1876.
He was the son of Alfred II MARSHALL.

1. Info from PPL History of Hendricks Co. - Alfred III MARSHALL came to Parke Co, Indiana in 1830 then moved to Howard Co, Indiana in 1846.
2. At the age of 56, he volunteered for service in the Civil War and served with Co "C" 149th Indiana Infantry. Alfred had 5 sons in the Union Army.

Hannah WOODY was born in Guilford County,NC, and died 1856. She was the daughter of Joshua (possibly John) WOODY. I believe John Woody ran a ferry across the Haw River duringthe Revolutionary War.

Taken from Portrait & Biographical Record, Gountain, Montgomery & Parke Counties, by Chapman Bros.:

Thomas S. Marshall is a resident of Rockville, and is the owner of one of the nicest places in the town. His residence is in the outskirts, and there he raised all kind of fruit and vegetables, paying great attention to horticulture. Our subject was born near Bloomingdale, Parke County, May 4, 1834, and is the son of Alfred marshall, who emigrated from North Carolina, settling in Penn Township about the year 1827, where he engaged in farming and was numbered amoung the earliest settlers. His brother, Judge John Marshall, who preceded him in coming to Indiana by about two years, was one of the pionneer merchants of Rockville. Our subject's father removed to the Indian Reserve, in what is now Howard County, and was one of the very first settlers of that region, his nearest neighbors being east and south, eight miles away. he purchased land of the railroad company for five dollars per acre, which he at once proceeded to cultivate and improve, In 1856, his wife died, and eleven years later he departed this life. The former, before her marriage, was Miss Hannah, daughter of John Woody, who was an early settler of the county. Mrs. Marshall was born in Guilford County, NC, where her father used to run a ferry boat on the Haugh River. Alfred Marshall, who was in the service during the war of the Rebellion, was formerly a Whig, and later became a Republican. When the gentleman of who we write was about 13, his father went to Howard County, and one year later he carried the mail between Delphi, Kokmo and Marion for eighteen months, going on horse back through whe woods and across the wildest parts of the country. He left Howard county in his twentieth yeaar, and going to Hendricks County engaged in farming until 1856. It was in that year the he wedded Miss Mary Hadley, whoes father, John Hadley, was an early settler and well known agriculturist of the county. After his marriage, Mr. Marshall located on a farm which he purchased near Danville, and there continued to make his home until the death of his wife in 1888. the union of Mr. and Mrs. Marshall was blessed with five daughters, Alicy, wife of William Gilkeson, a farmer of Parke County, Eva, Lizzie, Minnie, and Matilda, who live at home. Morton Sherman died in infancy. Soon after his wife's death, our subject sold his farm near Danville and came to Rockville. For four of five years previously, he had purchased furs in the winter season in this locality in which he is still engaged to some extent. He is very fond of hunting and during summer does considerable fishing as well. For eighteen years Mr. Marshall was Postmaster in the villiage of Pecksburg, near his home. He is a true-blue Republican and has held about all the towneship offices. During the war, he was assessor for six years, and was Enrolling officer. In 1863 he enlisted in Company B, one Hundred and seventeenth Indiana Infantry, and was made first Lieutenant, serving until the time of his enlistment had expired. He is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, and has always been a loyal and patriotic citizen. The father of Thomas S. Marshall had five sons, all of whom where in the Union Army, as well as their father at the same time.

William Woody is also listed in this book with a lengthy Bio. which I can provide if you are interested.

I apologize for the delayed response to your email. My life got busy and I stopped digging into the family history for a while. But to answer your question, if I have my facts straight Jonathan S. Marshall was my great, great, great grandfather. I base that on the following:

Jonathan & Nancy (Clemens) Marshall had a son, Alfred James Marshall on 13 August 1868.

Alfred married Aletha McCullom (year unknown) and they had a son, Elvin B. Marshall on 17 Jan 1896.

Elvin "Bossie" Marshall married Nada Palmer (year unknown) and they had a son, Richard Elvin Marshall on 11/12/1919. Richard who went by "Dick" was my grandfather.

I am working (slowly) on getting supporting documentation to back all of this up. I hope this explains the connection.
