Old Bible
Posted by: Thomas Spatz Date: January 03, 2002 at 20:47:56
  of 86

I found the following information in an old bible. Based on tne fact that Sarah (Sallie)Marsh died in 1933 and is the only child not showing age at death it appears that she is the source of the information in 1932 or 1933. Her sister age of death is shown and she died in 1932. I hope this will help others to tie this info to their relatives. I would appreciate being inform with any information on those shown.
John Palsgrove

This is Henry Marsh’s great Grandfather. He was born in Wurtemburg, Germany. They settled in Long Swamp, and then moved to Oley, Berks Co. He had four sons: Samuel, John, William, and David. John and William settled in Ohio. David in Trapp, Montgomery, and Samuel Palsgrove settled in Conestago Valley. (married Sarah Wastner). He had eleven Children: four dying in infancy. Jacob, Mary Marsh nee Palsgrove, David W. Palsgrove, Sarah Graves nee Palsgrove, Joseph J. Palsgrove, William W? Palsgrove, and Lewis M. Palsgrove. Jacob the oldest died at the age of 84, Mary Marsh nee Palsgrove died at the age of 85, Sarah Graves nee Palagrove died at the age of 80, David died at 85, Joseph at 76, William at 93, Lewis at 68. He being the youngest. The Mother died at the age of 43 and the Father at 78. Mary Palsgrove married Cyrus Marsh. They settled in Evansville, Robeson Township.
