A horse was killed under him at Brandywine. Thomas Marshall, which had performed severe duty in , was placed in a wood on the right, and in front of Woodford's Brigade and Stephen's Division. Though attacked by superior numbers, the regiment maintained its position until both its flanks were turned, its ammunition nearly expended, and more than half its officers, and one third of the soldiers were killed or wounded.

His name appears among the purchases of lots in Lexington, in In , Col. Marshall returned to Virginia for his family, which he brought west on a flat-boat, down the Ohio river. He was a zealous Federalist, took an active part in the politics of the day, and was decided in his opposition to the scheme of separating Kentucky from the Eastern States. He was deeply affected by this event, and in a letter to his son, John Marshall, dated Buckpond, Ky. It shows that, at that time, he held the office of Collector of United States revenue for the State. He writes : "The death of our dear Lucy is a heavy affliction — perhaps the more so on account of its being the first of the kind which has been felt by your mother and myself.

I endeavor to forget it. I have not mentioned her name twice since your letter announced the unfortunate event. But alas, I frequently find myself sighing and moaning on account of her death, without realizing what I am grieving for. But why am I describing my affliction to you who must have felt the same more than once in all its bitterness. God send we feel it no more!

Your sister Molly [ Mrs. Humphrey Marshall ], who had a long fit of illness, I believe knows nothing of our loss as yet. We were afraid to make it known to her. Make our kindest compliments of condolence to Mr. I feel for him sensibly, and make not the least doubt but he has his share of the affliction ; but no person's can be equal to that of an affectionate father and mother, for the loss of a daughter who never till now was the cause of one painful sensation in the breast of either.

Tell Mr. Ambler thait we have the firmest confidence in his Earental tenderness for the little son, the dear deceased has left with im. Tell him above all to be careful of its health and education — to be careful to sow the seed of virtue and honor early in its breast — to make it virtuous rather than learned, if he can't make it both. That part of wliht fortune I possess, which I intended for her, I shall leave to him ; rather as acknowledgement of parental love and affection, than as an addition to his estate.

I have complained of this in every letter I have written on the subject of revenue. I cannot possibly have the revenue collected, as no one will comply with the laws without compulsion, and the government has not put it in my power to compel compliance. This I have tried, but without success. What I can do, I know not.
