Hi Donna,

Are you sure his name was James? there is a WILLIAM MARSHALL died Nov. 20, 1927 Dunnville, ON

Ontario, Canada, Deaths, 1869-1938 and Deaths Overseas, 1939-1947 about William Marshall
Name:       William Marshall
Death Date:       20 Nov 1927
Death County or District:       Wentworth
Age:       74
Gender:       Male

Father - Henry Marshall, born ireland
Mother - Margaret
Informant: son W.A. Marshall, 1054 Wilmott St., Niagara Falls, ON

So his birth in 1853 was too early to be included in ON birth database which starts at 1869.

This is a possible marriage for him - mother shown as Mary, but I have an ancestor who went by both Mary and Margaret so may be same case here

It says:
occupation: wife (so as she died after Henry she may not be right one, although perhaps they just showed her occupation as wife even though he had died before her

Ontario, Canada, Deaths, 1869-1938 and Deaths Overseas, 1939-1947 about Margaret Marshall

Death County or District:       Haldimand
Age:       76
Gender:       Female
Estimated Birth Year:       abt 1810
Birth Location:       Scotland

She also is listed as a wife, so who knows
Informant is Henderson Marshall, but no relationship shown
cause of death - general debiliity, about 6 months
she died of twelve months wasting away

So I went to 1871 census to see how the family is listed (let me know if you want that info)
Henry is 60, Mary is 45 which puts her right age to be the Mrs. mary Marshall death above.

Your James T. Marshall was born about 1849 Indiana and I have not been able to find a connection to this family, at least not yet.
