My name is Steve Marshall. I'm trying to find the parents of my great-great-grandfather, Joseph Marshall (b.1823 d.1895).
My lineage is: me < William J Marshall < Bailey H Marshall < George W Marshall < Joseph Marshall. Beyond that, all I know is that Joseph's father was born in VA and his mother was born in MD. I don't know his mother's or father's name.
I recently got the results back from a DNA test from Family Tree DNA and found that my DNA matches that of the John Marshall/Annabella Toft/Mary Richardson family from Accomack, VA. I'm hoping someone here will be able to help with my research.
Here's a little more info on Joseph. He had 2 wives - Julia Ann Stockman and Mary A Garwood. I've been able to find him as far back as the 1850 census, but I've never found anything beyond that.
Any help will be greatly appreciated... thanks!
