General Notes and Anecdotes

William homesteaded in Lyman County with his wife and family, arriving in Presho on 7 Feb 1906. There was little space in town and they slept on makeshift accommodations in the hotel. The next day was blustery, with snow beginning to fall. It made for a cold ride for the family to the road house managed by John England, about eleven miles northwest of Presho. The next day, Ed hired Mr. England to take them to Aaron Lancaster, William's uncle. The family stayed with Aaron until their freight could be hauled from Pierre (Hughes County, South Dakota) and the new home could be built for the Marshalls on their quarter section homestead.

Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

William's middle name was probably Edward. [research-a-spear-family-history]

There are three other probable sons of William and Anna Marshall. These include Obion (should this be Osborn?), Edward, and Franklin. The Spear Birth and Death Dates Notebook includes birth dates for O. W. Marshall (27 Nov 1907), Edward Marshall (25 Sep 19xx), and Franklin Marshall (15 Dec 1911). Three similar names are listed in Proving Up Jones County History on page 330 as sons that arrived sometime between 1907 and before Anna's death in 1923: O.W., J Edward, and Frank. The latter also includes a boy named Donald. [book-proving-up-jones-county-history-1969, misc-spear-date-notebook]

William may have died on 2 Oct. [book-proving-up-jones-county-history-1969]

William may have died in Chamberlain (Brule County, SD), and been buried in Draper Cemetery in Draper (Jones County, SD). (from an obituary in an unknown paper)
