GEORGE MARSHALL, occupies a finely
improved farm in Dubuque Township, and ranks among the highly respected
Citizens of Dubuque County, by reason of his intelligence, sterling character
and reliable citizenship. He is an enterprising farmer prudently changing
his crops in order to keep up the fertility of the soil, and devoting
the greater amount of his land to grain, without neglecting other articles
of produce. He raises graded hogs, cattle and horses, and his farm is
well supplied with orchards and groves.
Mr. Marshall was born in Middletown, Pa., July 22, 1850, and is the son
of Jacob and Mary Marshall, natives of Germany, who are still living,
making their home on a valuable property located near the home of our
subject. George remained on the farm until eleven years of age, when he
went to Dubuque and attended school for some time. He was married November
29, 1875, to Miss Barbara Schuster, a native of Germany, and the daughter
of Philip and Magdaline (Copemann) Schuster, also born in the Fatherland,
whence they came to the United States in 1860, locating at once in this
county. They are both deceased, dying at the respective ages of fifty-one
and sixty two years.
To our subject and his wife have been born two children, Jacob and Emily,
both at home. After his marriage Mr. Marshall purchased his present farm,
which includes one hundred and sixty-two well-cultivated acres, where
he is engaged in general farming. He is an ardent admirer of Republican
principles, and never fails to cast a vote in favor of its candidates.
He has served at various times as a member of the School Board, and is
a consistent member of the Congregational Church, with which he has been,
connected for some time.
Jacob Marshall, the father of our subject, was born in Wurtemberg, Germany
July 6, 1825, and was the son of John George and Christiana C. (Harvey)
Marshall, also born in Wurtemberg. The latter was a baker by, trade, and
coming to the United States in 1831, first located in Buffalo, N. Y.,
where he worked at his trade, and later moved to Ohio, making his home
in the Buckeye State for eight and one-half years. At the end of that
time he removed to Pennsylvania, where he died at the age of seventy-five
years. His good wife preceded him to the better land, passing away when
in her sixtieth year.
The father of our subject was one in a family of three children, and has
one sister living, bearing the name of Christiana. He remained under the
parental roof until reaching his majority, when he learned the silk weaver's
trade, working at it first in Pittsburg, Pa. In 1849 he married Miss Mary
Rhinecleaver, who was born in Saxony, and was the daughter of John and
Christian Rhinecleaver, who came to the United States about 1846, locating
in Pittsburg, Pa., and about 1855 settling in Monroe, Wis. The mother
died in Wisconsin and the father departed this life in Dubuque County.
Jacob Marshall is well to do in this world's goods, and with his estimable
wife is living retired on a valuable estate near the home of our subject.
