Tubman Cox and Ann(wife of Tubman Cox) had the following child:
478 i. Mary Elizabeth7 Cox was born about 1815. Mary died before June 7, 1837 in Somerset Co., MD, at approximately 21 years of age. She married Robert Henry Marshall in Somerset Co., MD, February 9, 1835. Robert was born in Somerset Co., MD July 1, 1813. Robert was the son of Robert Nairn Marshall and Elisabeth Hall. Robert died 1886 in Somerset Co., MD, at 73 years of age. Known to family as "Uncle Bob," Robert was a miller. In 1838 he deeded part of "Tarso" to Samuel D. Milbourne. (C. Hayward Marshall, Sr. & William Marshall Scott) Robert H. is shown on the 1840 census of Worcester Co., MD. Robert and wife, Elizabeth, are shown in the 1850 census of Brinkleys District, Somerset Co., MD, with Charles and Alexene. Five other persons were living in the household: Benjamin Odell, 23, George Williams, 24, and John Kenada, 23, all farmers; and Ephraim Horsey, 10, and Sarah Horsey, 14, both Black and very possibly children of Uncle Bob's neighbors, Ephraim and Zeporah Horsey.
Robert is shown in the 1860 census of Somerset County in the Dublin District.
The family Bible of Robert's son, Charles, had a piece of note paper inside with letterhead "Chosen Friends Lodge, No 100, I.O.O.F., Meets Every Tuesday Evening, Broad & Spring Garden Sts., Philadelphia, 1889. Noted on this paper was information Charles evidently wrote about his father. It reads that Robert was born "in Somerset County Md., on the old Marshall homestead, situated on the left bank of the Pocomoke River opposite Cedar Hall, on July third, 1813. Died 1886 at Crisfield, Somerset County, aged 73 years, 6 months in 1886." Robert's father had left "Tarso" to his son, Robert. (Somerset tax and will records, Clerk's Office, copied by William Marshall Scott) Robert Henry Marshall sold "Tarso" to an Isaac T. Marshall (of the Somerset family).
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 On June 7, 1837, Robert received from Ann Cox, acting administrator of Tubman Cox, $158.50 in full payment of his wife's distributive share of her father's estate.
