Biographical Sketch of Samuel Marsh

SAMUEL MARSH, from whom have descended the Marshes, came early to town and settled near the Four Corners. His wife, who had long lived in the family of a physician, and had become skilled in the “healing art,” kept the first primitive “Apothecary’s Shop” in town. Besides her knowledge of medicine she was noted for her mechanical ingenuity. The old ” dies,” with which she used to print the ladies’ calico dresses, are still in being, as also the “pillion” on which she visited her patients. The husband died in 1832, aged 94; the wife in 1834, aged 90 years.
