     George A. Marshall, one of the eleven children of Samuel Marshall, a pioneer of Turtle Creek, township, was born September 14, 1849, and there he attended country school.
     He took a course in the Ohio Wesleyan at Delaware, studied law in the office of Conklin & Burress, and was admitted to the bar in 1876. In 1878 he formed a partnership with Judge Conklin and two years later opened an office alone. Twice he was elected prosecuting attorney on the democratic ticket, in 1877 and again in 1882. In 1896 he was elected to congress from the 4th district and served one term. He died April 21, 1899, leaving a wife and three boys.
     He had considerable native ability and with sound judgment and common sense made a strong jury lawyer.
