Note: A picture of a Robert H. Marshall and Elizabeth was found in a box marked 'family photographs' by a descendant of a Littleton Sturgis. The features of this Robert H., when compared to a photo of Charles Thomas Marshall, are similar and the Robert H. Marshall pictured was likely one and the same as Robert H., the miller. Confirmation that the photo was, indeed, that of Robert H., son of Robert Nairn Marshall, was found in a penciled entry in the family Bible of Charles W. B. Marshall, Robert Henry's son, with the notation that Alexene (Robert Henry's daughter) had married Littleton Sturgis. Alexene evidently went by the name Ella, she and married a Littleton Sturgis and the box of family photos was found in the possessions of Alexene/Ella's granddaughter. The photo of Robert Henry Marshall and his wife, Elizabeth, is on the internet at www.esva.net/ghotes
