Dear Fred, Linda and particularly Elwyn thanks for your fantastic responses to my email to the group. Some excellent starting points. Elwyn, Linda tells me you are a "local" to Ballymena. Would you mind if I come back to you direct please?RegardsGarryOn 23/06/2013, at 8:26 PM, "Fred" <fredpincock@...> wrote:I don't know if it is any help to you but you can look at the Braid site which has a lot of tombstone inscriptions; http://www.thebraid.com/genealogy.aspx There are several Marshalls listed; all more recent than 1840, but they might give you some leads to current Marshalls.
You could also try http://www.belfastforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,51465.new.html#new This is a group that someone might do some free lookups for you at Emerald Ancestors.

> I have just joined the group so I trust I am going about this the right way! Part of my Irish family were Marshall and they came from Galgorm. My ggg grandfather was Hugh Marshall born I believe c1801. He married twice and came to Australia in 1840 with his second wife Jane Montgomery and 8 children on the Elphinstone on 5 October 1840.
