Looking for any information about parents of Robert Marshall b. 1793 in Va, lived in Davidson Co, TN. He married Nancy Hoskins (Father Thomas Coleman Hoskins) in Rutherford Co. in 1820. This is well documented.

They moved to Henderson Co., TN where he was Sheriff from 1826-1833 and later to Holly Springs, Mississippi . His son AJ went to Texas. I found a early Davidson Co. tax record stating he was in indenture but could not tell if that was a land indenture or something else. I do not think he hails from the Gilbert Marshall line.

Our family has been unable to track his parents or his original VA home but there is some anecdotal information that he and his wife's families were related somewhere. His Mother's name may have been Jane. It is a mystery. Linda
