Cousin James was only a week old when his mother died. He was raised by his aunt, and my sister, Mrs. P. A. Marshall (188). Before marriage, he came to Platte Co., Mo., and purchased a farm. After a few years, he returned, and now cultivates and farms near Washington,  Ky. Cousin Sue has no children, but  is the mother of all the boys and girls she can gather about her. She is a kind­ hearted and whole-souled matron, that everybody loves.

Since James Marshall lived so long after Paxton published the Marshall Family, there is significant info missing.
