It makes it very difficult because there are no census records showing the spouses of the heads of households before 1850.

I'm new to this list and wonder if anyone is related to the MARCHALs who were from Petitmagny in the Alsace Lorraine area of France and came to Stark County OH, then Darke County OH about 1830. The family was Catholic.
Nicolas Valentin MARCHAL and wife Jeanne Marie REINICHE Their children: Marie Therese Jacob Marguerite Nicholas Marie Francois George Marie Catherine Jean Claude Marie Joseph (born at sea) Jane (born in this country) Marie (born in this country.
Some of the descendants used the MARSHALL spelling. Many stayed in Darke County Ohio, then moved to Grant County Indiana. Some moved to Idaho and were instrumental in developing the potato industry.
Please let me know if you have any information on this family or any descendants.

Are there any MARCHALs on this list? I have been watch for the French spelling for a long time, without luck. My MARCHALs came from the village of Petitmagny, near Belfort in Alsace, close to the Swiss and German borders.
Nicolas Valentin MARCHAL brought his family of 8 children to America in the summer of 1827. His wife, Jeanne Marie Reiche gave birth to another son before they landed in this country. The family stayed in Stark County, Ohio for a couple of years, then went to Darke County, Ohio. Jeanne Marie apparently died in Stark County. I am trying to get an idea where the descendants are now. I do know that some moved to Idaho, (Joseph P. MARSHALL, and maybe others), while some moved to California and Florida and that several branches changed the spelling to MARSHALL. The branch I am from moved from Darke County, Ohio to Grant County, Indiana, and are now scattered throughout the country. We are planning a family reunion this summer and would like to know where our kinfolk are.
We have traced the family in France several generation before Nicolas Valentin and would be glad to share that information.
If anyone has information to share on this family, please let me know. Thanks.
