    Charity Marshall daughter of John Marshall and Elizabeth his wife was born February the 9" 1741. [sic]
    [Note: the above record is from a typewritten manuscript, and makes Charity a twin with Elizabeth. However, the original is online too here and reads: "Chaty Marshall Daughter of John Marshall and Elisebath his wife was born november ye 6th 1738."]

  2. There is a death record found in the typewritten manuscript and the original that says "Susannah marshall Daughter of John marshall and Elisebath his wife Desesed July the 8 day aged one year and eight monthes." Note the lack of death year. Since it is in a list that appears chronological and follows a death 1 Aug 1741 and precedes one in Sep 1742, one would be inclined to think it is for 1742? However, neither the date nor the age at death appear to align with any child in this family. 1 year and 8 months from July 1742 would be about Nov 1740. Susannah is born in March 1734, and the age at death would calculate to a death about Nov 1735. Charity is the only child with a birth in November.
