W. M. Paxton, in his book The Marshall Family, said that the Marshall family was from Ireland. Later, in letters written to G. C. Marshall in 1886 and 1895, Paxton said that the Marshall family came "from central or northern England, beyond question." He said that he "made a grand mistake in deriving the Marshalls from Ireland."
 
The parents of William Marshall (1757-1811) are questionable. Two books, The Marshall Family, by W. M. Paxton, published in 1885, and Virginia Cousins, by G. Brown Goode, published in 1888, list him as a son of William Marshall and Ann McLeod. Colonial Families of the Southern States of America, by Stella Pickett Hardy, published in 1968, does not list him as being in that family, and neither does the IGI from the LDS Church. Unfortunately, no primary sources are cited by any of the above works.
 
In Virginia Cousins, page 469, it is said that "Lucy Goode m. Col. William Marshall, of Mecklenburg Co., Va., son of William and Ann McLeod Marshall, of Caroline Co., grandson of William and Elizabeth Marshall, of Mecklenburg Co., nephew of John and Eliz. Markham Marshall, whose descendants are enumerated in Paxton's Marshall Family, brother of Sarah (Marshall) Anderson, from whom descended the Andersons of Virginia..."

Virginia Cousins, page 469, by G. Brown Goode, published in 1887, names the following children of William Marshall and Ann McLeod:

     Annie Clark Marshall m. William Samuels
     Frances Marshall m. Robert Thompkins
     Mary Marshall m. William Webb

Col. William Marshall, a DAR patriot, enlisted in the Virginia Militia on April 1, 1779, and served for 235 days during the Southern Campaign of the Revolutionary War. The marriage bond of William Marshall and Lucy Goode was dated March 21, 1782, in Powhatan County, Virginia. A deed, dated August 18, 1798, in Powhatan County, Virginia, from the children of Bennett Goode and Martha, his wife, and the husbands of the daughters, includes William Marshall and Lucy, his wife.
 
Marshall went to Mecklenburg County to manage the Prestwould Estate for the widow of Sir Peyton Skipwith. In 1810, he emigrated to Kentucky and settled near Henderson, where he died. Thomas Puryear and wife Elizabeth sold land to Francis Locket, husband of Elizabeth's sister Martha, in Henderson County, Kentucky, on November 28, 1823. The land was described as having been inherited by Elizabeth from her late father Col. William Marshall.
