As quoted from James Cox Brady and his ancestry, by Louis Effingham De Forest, New York: De Forest Publishing Co., 1933 p. 334 - 337: "His grandfather, David Wilton, lived at Northampton, Massachusetts, and it is said that Samuel Marshall settled there in 1663 or 1664. Although 'settled' is a curious word to use about a child of ten or eleven years, it seems improbable that his father, Samuel Marshall, removed to Northampton (during King Philip's War he was 'quartered' at Wilton's house there), and it is easy to suppose that it is Samuel Marshall who went to live with his grandfather. Wilton had had only one daughter, and was a man of position and means, and it was very natural for him to wish to have his eldest grandson with him. At his death in February, 1677/8, Wilton left most of his real estate in Northampton to Samuel Marshall. In 1672/3 contributions were made by the inhabitants of Northampton to Harvard College, and Samuel Marshall gave 2 s to the cause of education."
Marshall "is said to have served as a soldier from Northampton in King William's War, which was fought between 1688 and 1698, but the details of his service are not known. In 1690 Marshall was freeman."
Samuel and Rebecca had 7 children: Mary, Samuel, Abigail, Sarah, Preserved, Lydia, and Mercy (#522).
