Third Generation

4. John3 Marshall (Thomas2, John1) was born about 1656. John died 1720 in Northampton Co., VA, at 64 years of age.

He married Sarah (wife of John Marshall). Sarah died after May 5, 1720. Sarah may have been a second marriage and mother of Jacob, Elizabeth and possibly Sarah. She might have been the Sarah who married David Stott and was mother of John Stott - see Thomas Marshall, #18 Fourth Generation.

He made a will in Northampton Co., VA, May 5, 1720. John's will was probated in Northampton Co., VA, May 17, 1720. John bought 100A of the Bradford section of N115 in 1710 from John Smith d. 1711 and wife Joan (Sheapheard). In 1700, he received the southern half of the Truett N115 section from his father, Thomas. In 1720, John and wife, Sarah, left to their son Thomas, who had already acquired the Bradford N115 section to the south in 1708 from Abraham Smith and purchased the the section owned by Isaac Smith in 1724. (Ralph Whitelaw, Virginia's Eastern Shore, pp. 527-528) John was Justice of the Peace for Northampton County.

John may have married a daughter or grandaughter of John Smith d. 1698 and Jane Charlton. This is purely speculation based on the appearance of "Smith" given names starting with John's sons and continuing for several generations and the number of land and legal transactions between the families.

Sarah was the name of John's wife at the time of his death; she may have been a second marriage. Land records indicate a Sarah (probably Marshall) married David Stott, Jr. and had a son, John Stott, who was of age by 1758. Sarah Stott was living in 1764. (See Thomas Marshall in Fourth Generation.) Sarah may not have been mother to all of John's children.
