Thank you for the lead, Richard! :) This must be the Amos Marchal I was looking for since the dates and places look right.I chose Indiana for his birth because my grandmother, Lucille Aguste Marchal was born in Indiana. Amos Marchal was married to Marie Thibeau (unsure of her surname spelling.) Some of my Marchal relatives anglicized their names into Marshall. The Marchal trail is not an easy one for me. I appreciate your help on this one.
