CAPT. JOHN W. MARSHALL is a native of Hardin county, Ky., and was born

Subsequently he raised Co. C, Fifty-third Infantry, commanded by Col.
Gresham. He was captain of Co. C, over two years, and was discharged on
account of being disabled at Big Black river in the latter part of 1862. He
returned home and engaged in farming, which he has continued ever since.
He has one of the finest farms in Harrison county, comprising 468 acres of
very productive land, well improved.
Capt. Marshall was married to Miss Elizabeth Sieg, daughter of Daniel F.
Sieg, a native of Virginia, who came here among the pioneers; his father
was John Sieg, also an early settler, and a native of Virginia.
Capt. Marshall has been commander of Nevin Post, G.A.R. As a farmer, he is
one of the best and most successful in the county, and owns one of the
finest farms.
