The following biography of George Nelson Marshall is excerpted from History of Erie County, Pennsylvania (John Elmer Reed; Historical Publishing Company: Topeka-Indianapolis; 1925):

 

“George N. Marshall, well known retired farmer and highly esteemed citizen of Erie County, was born on the farm where he now lives in North East Township, April 22, 1840, and is the son of Robert and Martha (Johnston) Marshall.


Both Robert Marshall and his wife were natives of County Tyrone, Ireland.  They were married in Ireland and came to America in 1829 and located at Solon, Ohio, where they lived until 1836.  They then decided to return to Ireland and had reached Buffalo, N. Y., when the mother was taken ill with cholera.  At Buffalo they met a friend, Ed Graham, who told them of Erie and induced them to return to Erie County, which they did when the mother recovered her health.  They settled in North East Township, buying 50 acres of land and then followed farming until the death of Robert Marshall, Dec. 25, 1875.  His widow died Nov. 9, 1894.  They were the parents of seven children: James, Maria J., Eliza beth, Margaret, Robert W., George N., the subject of this sketçn, and Thomas O.  All are now deceased except George N.


George N. Marshall received his education in the district schools of North East Township and was successfully engaged in farming until 1904, when he retired.  He owns 92 acres of land.


On Aug. 18, 1869, Mr. Marshall was united in marriage with Miss Emma L. Edgerton, and they have four children: Minnie, married Frank Rater, lives near the Marshall farm in North East Township; Margaret at home; Frank, lives at home and operates the farm; and Adgate, married Catherine Spacht, lives near the old homestead.


Mr. Marshall is independent in politics and has a wide acquaintance in the community where he has spent his entire life.”
