I am doing some genealogy work for my Marshall family who lived in Columbus, GA, for several generations. Many of my relatives are at rest in Porterdale cemetery. I am trying to find out answers to the following questions and would appreciate it if you can help me out:

1) Who was Marshall Middle School in Columbus, GA, named for?

2) Is anyone related to Austin Henry Marshall (born 1892 in Columbus, GA)?

3) Does anyone know anything about Henry A. Marshall (1859-1897) or his wife Mary Smith Marshall (1866-1928)?

4) Is anyone there related to Tim Marshall? Do you know whether Tim and Austin or Henry Marshall are directly related?

5) Is anyone familiar with Freddye Marshall and her family roots?

Thank you for any info you might have about these subjects.

K. Marshall

Shadrach R. Marshall

Upon graduation from Tuskegee Institute, Professor Marshall decided to devote his life to teaching. He taught first grade in Pike County, Alabama, then in Talbot County, Georgia, and afterwards in Bullock County, Alabama. He later moved to Muscogee County, where he taught in the county schools from 1890 to 1897. It was in the fall of 1897 that he first became connected with the public schools in Columbus. He was elected as teacher in the seventh grade in the Sixth Avenue School and taught there one year. From 1898 to 1908 he was made the principal of the Twenty-eighth Street School. In 1908 without any solicitation of his part, he was made principal of the Claflin School. He held this position until his voluntary retirement on August 31, 1940. Shadrach Marshall was born in Talbot County on September 6, 1865, and died on September 25, 1946. He was highly esteemed by all the citizens of Columbus and Muscogee County, and Marshall Junior High school will stand as a monument to the contribution which he made to education of the African American youth of this community.
