Marsh Genealogy. Giving Several Thousand Descendants of John Marsh of Hartford, Conn., 1636-1895. Also Including Some Account of the English Marshes, and a Sketch of the Marsh Family Association of America - Dwight Whitney Marsh. This large, closely-knit family held several reunions and was dedicated to preserving the Marsh family history. The result is this wonderful heirloom work that traces some lines up to nine generations and contains more than 5000 names. Every descendant is assigned a number, making this genealogy very easy to follow. Each entry contains as much information as was known. Some are quite lengthy, with a great deal of biographical information. Others are very brief, simply giving birth and death dates. Most at least contain names of spouses and children, places of residence, and sometimes the names of the children's spouses and their residence. There are two indices: one is for all persons bearing the name of Marsh; the other is a full name index for persons of other names than Marsh. Some of the individual Marsh families were quite large.
