He made a will in Worcester Co., MD, March 23, 1797. John's will was probated in Worcester Co., MD, August 15, 1797. (Ruth T. Dryden, Worcester Will Book JWB f.315-6, p. 32) John appears on the 1790 Worcester Co. MD census with 2 males +16, 1 female -16, 4 females +16 and 23 slaves. His son, Zadock, and Thomas Priddeaux, Jr. lived on either side. (1790 census) John left 1/3 plantation to his wife Elizabeth, "Timmons Choice" to son, John; son Thomas; son Zadock land purchased of Zadock Selby; daughters Polly, Rachel and Sally; son William "Hudsons Ruin" on north side of Betty Gut; deceased son Isaac's wife, Sarah, land. John left to his grandson, John Marshall, son of Isaac, lands I now live on: Plantation part tract Laurence's Neck, part tract Deal, Marshall's Addition, Sea Brant, Shirley Venture, part tract Hudson's Ruin. He also named grandson, Thomas, son of Isaac and granddaughter, Betsy, daughter of Isaac. Witnesses: James B. Robins, Thomas P. Rackliffe and Richard Hall. (Ruth Dryden, Will Book JBR, p. 6; Suzanne B. Hurley, Research of Langmaid Farm, 1998)
Bible records from a Bible belonging to Gordon A. Marshall indicate John was called "Uncle Jack."
Elizabeth's will was probated in Worcester Co., MD, December 6, 1803. An Elizabeth Marshall died intestate and bonds posted by John P. Marshall, William Whittington and William Marshall. (Ruth Dryden, Will Book JBR, p. 6)
Elizabeth Purnell and John Marshall had the following children:
+ 170 i. Zadock5 Marshall (Sr.).
171 ii. Mary "Polly" Marshall was born in Worcester Co., MD. Mary died April 19, 1832 in Worcester Co., MD. She married Thomas N. Williams. Bible records from the John Marshall Bible show Mary Marshall Williams, wife of Thomas N. Williams died in 1832, age 35. (The original Bible record needs to be looked at; if she was age 35 at her death, her birth would be 1797 and she'd be 34 years younger than her siblings. Her age may have been transcribed incorrectly from the original record and more probably she was age 65, born in 1767) Thomas N. Williams was shown as an heir of the estate of Zadock Marshall. It is thought that Mary "Polly" Marshall, daughter of John & Elizabeth, is the Mary who married Thomas Williams. She and her husband would be heirs of Zadock Purnell, as her mother was Zadock's sister. Unable to find a marriage record for a Thomas N. Williams to Mary/Polly Marshall or Mary/Polly Ennis.
Marriage records show a Mary Marshall married Boaz Ennis in 1803. It is not clear if this is the same Mary/Polly and further information on Boaz Ennis is not known. Mary's sister, Rachel, married a Samuel Ennis, which is shown in the Bible record. Mary may have married first Boaz Ennis in 1803 and married second Thomas N. Williams. It would be odd that her name would be shown as Marshall rather than Ennis if she had married Boaz Ennis first. Marriage records for a Thomas N. Williams show a 1833 marriage to Elizabeth D. Hudson and a Thomas N. Williams married in 1842 Harriet Henderson. (Mary Beth & Vanessa Long, Worcester Marriage Records)
172 iii. Rachel Marshall. Rachel died August 13, 1810 in Worcester Co., MD. Notation by John Marshall in family Bible gives date and says "my sister." She married Samuel Ennis in Worcester Co., MD, November 17, 1800. (Mary Beth & Vanessa Long, Worcester Co. Marriage Licenses 1795-1865, p. 9) Samuel went to Delaware in 1810. (Ruth T. Dryden, Worcester Co. MD Land Records, p. 92)
+ 173 iv. William Purnell Marshall.
+ 174 v. Isaac Marshall(Capt.).
175 vi. Thomas Purnell Marshall was born in Worcester Co., MD. Notation in transcript of family Bible of John Marshall showing "my brother" Thomas Purnell Marshall has birth date 4-26-1821, but since their father died in 1797, this would be difficult. Thomas died after 1809. Thomas patented "Bell Vale" with his brother, John, in 1809, Worcester Co. MD. He had 392 acres.
+ 177 viii. John Purnell Marshall(Capt.) was born February, 1761.
+ 178 ix. Sarah "Sally" Elizabeth Marshall was born September 28, 1763.
