    Notes 
    • Shown in 1850 as a 19 year old store clerk in LaGrange. In 1860, Silas was listed as a merchant with real estate of $2,300 and personal property of $10,000. Deed records at Monticello, Missouri show that Silas disposed of his LaGrange interests in October 1870 and May 1871. The final transaction may have been executed during a visit to Lewis county prompted by the death of his brother Winfield in March of 1871. (Ralph Marshall, p 29).

      In 1880 and 1900 he can be found in Pulaski County, Arkansas with his family. His occupation was shown as insurance agent on both census enumerations.

      He can not be located on the 1910 Census. His sister, Caladonia, who had lived with the family at the time of the prior two census enumerations had moved to Oklahoma, and was living with her niece, Sarah Elizabeth Payne O'Neill. Presumably Silas had moved to California, as the March, 1913 obituary for his sister Caladonia states "the death of a brother in California the week previous caused a nervous shock which hastened the ravages of [her] disease." Her only other brother, Winfield, had died in 1871.

    Silas Marshall was a merchant in Missouri, later moving to Little Rock, Arkansas as an Insurance Agent. This cabinet portrait, marked "T. W. Bankes' Gallery of Photographic Art, Little Rock" was probably taken shortly after the Civil War. It was inscribed on the back, "Compliments of Mr. and Mrs. S.N. Marshall to Miss Lizzie Payne." Lizzie was the eldest daughter of Silas's sister Martha Jane Marshall. The photographer, Thomas Bankes was a native of England who was well known for his Civil War photos, following the Federal Army from Helena, Ark. to Little Rock, Ark. in 1864. He serviced the central Arkansas area until the 1870's.
