red mail Thomas Marshall / Helen Smith married early 1700's
I am Janet and the following are my forebearers. Thomas MARSHALL married Helen SMITH in Kirriemuir, Angus in the early 1700's. His father was Alexander MARSHALL who was living in 1620. Thomas and Helen had a son named Thomas B.1676 who became a merchant in Dundee and married Janet REID (for whom I was named) who was baptized Aug 23 1683. They had a son, Alexander who was baptized 1717 and later immigrated to Nasau as a ship's captain and was awarded property in Nasau. He sat as a judge on the bench of England in Nasau. Prior to the American Revolution, he immigrated to Charleston SC and married Ann Chanler. They had a son Dr. Thomas Marshall M.D. B.1766 in Charleston who married Mary Susanna Chanler (yes, same last name as her mother-in-law) and had a son Rev. Alexander Washington Marshall D.D. who married Elizabeth Maynard. I am looking for any info re: the original Alexander Marshall who was living in 1620; when he was born, where he lived, who his parents and/or grandparents might have been and who he married. Please let me know if you have any information that might help me and I hope that this info. might help someone else fill a few holes in their own family tree. There were a few more Alexanders and a Trapier Keith Marshall in the mix, all who continued to live in Charleston SC. USA. We are proud of our Scottish heritage. Our Great Grandfather, Major Alexander Washington Marshall, was president of the oldest St. Andrews Society in America, (est 1729) at the time of the society's 175th birthday in 1904.
