Polly D. Marshall, 1907 -1989
Benjamin Harbison Marshall was born after Paxton published the Marshall Family
so there is no information from that source
Some of the information comes from Ancestery.com
I, Charles W Marshall, am writing this portion of this entry on Mar 2 2019. It contains the oral history I have heard growing up on Walnut Grove Farm. You should understand it may not be accurate. I hope others will review and make entries that correct, extend and clarify the life of Benjamin Harbison Marshall and Polly D. Marshall
Ben H Marshall was born in 1906 in Kentucky to Orra Moore Calvert, age 32, and Benjamin Harbeson Marshall, age 45.
His brother Charles A had been born in 1894 , and was was 12 years old when Ben was born.
His brother Thomas had been born in 1904 and was
2 years old when Ben was born.
His sister Emily Paxton was born in 1909 in Kentucky
when Ben was 3 years old.
When I knew Uncle Ben and Aunt Polly they lived in Houston Texas. He worked as a salesman. I think he sold steel for U S Steel, but I am not sure.
He was also an active Shriner. I remember he had a deal where he could buy a 1 year old Cadillac convertible each year. It seems the president of Texas Shriners got a new Cadillac convertible to drive during his 1 year term. Ben had arranged be able to buy “last” year’s car as each new president got his car.
Ben and Polly had two daughters. I hope that they will review and make entries that correct, extend and clarify the life of Benjamin Harbison Marshall and Polly Marshall
