Marshall Family Information

Posted: 1304536911000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Marshall, Herring
Seeking information on the Marshall Family in the area. My maternal grandfather was Jessie Walter Marshall, one of few of the family who survived the flu epidemic of 1918. I understand the family was very prosperous and prior to the northern invasion owned a plantation and an unknow number of slave families. My grandmother told me many of their decendants were share cropping on the land when she married my grandfather. Unfortunately, my grandfather lost the plantation soon after marrying my grandmother, Maybelle Herring. I would like to know exactly how it passed from family hands. Information is very limited and only passed down verbally. I know my great grandfather John Herring served in the 1st Mississippi Light Artillery and that several Marshalls are on muster rolls of the unit. I would like very much to know if I am related to those Marshalls. I would appreciate any information about the family and the plantation. Family lore places it on the shores of Four Mile Lake.
