He married twice. He married Mary "Polly" Whittington in Worcester Co., MD, about 1780. (notes of Jim Marshall)

Mary was born in Worcester Co., MD about 1758. Mary was the daughter of Southy Whittington and Esther Nairn. Mary died after May 9, 1803 in Somerset Co., MD, at approximately 44 years of age. Mary's sister, Jeanitt Whittington, names Mary in her May 9, 1803 will. Robert married 2nd Esther Fountain by license of July 11, 1803 Somerset Co., widow of ___ Hall. (will of Jeanitt Whittington 1803; Jim Marshall; C. H. Marshall, Sr. & William Marshall Scott) See Whittington Family Journal.

He married Esther Fountain Hall in Somerset Co., MD, July 11, 1803. Robert called her Esther Fountain in his will.

Esther died 1815 in Somerset Co., MD. The marriage record shows Esther with surname Hall. Robert calls her Esther Fountain in his will. No marriage record has been found of an Esther Fountain to a Hall; however, it is suspect that she was the widow of a Hall related to Robert's daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Hall.

He made a will in Somerset Co., MD, May 26, 1814. Robert and his family lived at "Tarso", inherited from his uncle, John Nairn in 1771. "Tarso" was located west of the Pocomoke River (a little over a mile) and about two miles south of the Rehobeth Plantation. It adjoined "Pimore" and "Nairn's Addition" and bordered "Late Discovery" on the southern line. (about half-way between the towns of Rehobeth and Shelltown and Rehobeth Road probably runs through the old property) Robert is shown paying the 1783 taxes. Members of the family continued at "Tarso" until Robert's grandson sold it to Isaac T. Marshall. (notes of William Marshall Scott & C. Hayward Marshall, Sr.)

1810 census shows him at Pocomoke Hundred, Somerset as 45+, with 1F10-16, 1F16-26, and 1F45+. Ennumerated on either side are Isaac Riggin and Noah Riggin, Martha Hall, Sarah Riggin and then the household of his son, Robert N. Marshall.
