In Reply to: Polly Eliza Marble by Richard Ong of 547

Hello Richard. I was able to find some information on the posting you did on Polly Eliza Marble. I hope the information helps. I found all of the information on the LDS website:

In the 1850 Census, as Free Inhabitants in the Township of Deerfield, in the county of Livingston, State of Michigan, enumerated on October 3, 1850, it shows the following:

Ira Marble, 55, Male, Farmer, born in Massachusetts
Hannah Marble, 53, Female, born in Massachusetts
Oscar Marble, 20 Male, Farmer. born in "illegible" print.
Polly, age 13, Female, born in Maine
Hannah, age 10, Female, born in Michigan
Then below this family there are a list of people that are described as "Paupers", but still listed as if they were members of the family:
Sam G. Colebern, age 80, male, occupation is listed as none, and the place of birth is Massachusetts.
Elias Artly (?), age 60, male, Cabinet Maker, place of birth is illegible.
Wm. Shepherd, age 70, male, Occupation: none, place of birth is Massachusetts
Thomas Smith, age 22, male, occupation: none, place of birth: Ireland.
John Mastick, age 17, male, occupation: none, place of birth: illegible.
Levi (?) Reichmond, age 25, male, occupation: none, place of birth: Massachusetts.
Elizabeth Carandene, age 80, Female, Place of birth appears to be New Jersey.
Martha Nann, age 70, Female, place of birth: Ireland
Harriet Corey, age 28, Female, place of birth: New York.
Hugh Nann, age 2, Male, born in Michigan
Dewitt Thompkins, age 1, Male, born in Michigan
Elijah Fails (?), age 70, male, Occpuation: none, born in New York.
Ann Fails (?), age 35 or 55, Female, born in New York.
Keith (?) Fails (?), age 10, Female, born in Michigan
Pat Fails(?), age 6, male, born in Michigan.
Geo. Fails(?), age 3, male, born in Michigan.
Ann Fails(?), age 2/12, female, born in Michigan.

**Directly below this listing is another Marble family, who may be related:
Moses Marble, age 30, male, Farmer, born in Maine.
Elizabeth Marble, female, born in Michigan.
Laura Marble, Female, age 1/12, born in Michigan

In the 1860 Census, for Livingston, Michigan, Deerfield Ward: Polly E. Bristol is listed as age 23 years, Estimated date of birth 1837, Birthplace is Maine.
I could not view the original Census information as you can not view it without paying a fee.

According to the August 1, 1870 Census for the Inhabitants of Deerfield, in the County of Livingston, State of Michigan the following is listed:

Bristol, J.H., age 36, male, white, Farmer, born in New York.
Bristol, Polly E., age 33, Female, white, Keeping house, born in Maine.
Bristol, Ira O., age 14, male, white, at home, born in Michigan.
Bristol, Chas (?) H., age 11, male, white, at home born in Michigan.
Bristol, Wells B., age 8, male, white, born in Michigan.
Bristol, Alonzo C(?), age 6, male, white, born in Michigan.
Bristol, Sarah C.(?), age 4, female, white, born in Michigan.
Bristol, John w., age 2, male, white, born in Michigan.

Under Family Search, Collection: Michigan Deaths, 1867 - 1897, sad to say, that I found that a Polley E. Bristol, age 33 years and 8 months, died September 20, 1870 in Deerfield, Livingston County, Michigan. Her estimated date of birth was 1837, but this listed her place of birth as the state of Illinois. It listed her as married, but did not list her spouse. However, it did list her parents as Ira Marble and Hannah Marble. It showed her occupation as housekeeper.
Under the Family Search, Michigan Births, 1867 - 1902, I found a John Ward Bristal (note the spelling), was born October 27, 1868 in Deerfield, Livingston, Michigan. His parents are listed as John H. Bristal (again the same spelling), born in New York. The mother is listed as Polly Bristal, born in New York.

According to the Family Group Record on the FamilySearch, Polly Marble and John Bristol were married about 1856 in Maine. According to the record, John Bristol was born in 1832 in New York and died in 1922, location not given. Polly Bristol's date of birth is listed as 1837 in Maine, and the date of her death and location is not given. The children listed in the Family Record are listed, however, their places of birth are listed as Maine, not Michigan:
The children are:
Ira Bristol, born 1857
Charles Bristol, born 1859
Wells Bristol, born 1862
Alonzo Bristol, born 1864
Sarah Bristol, born 1866
John Bristol, born 1868

I do hope this might help you in your search. Take care and hope you are successful in your search.
