MARSHALL from IL to NE about 1883

I am looking for information on the William Marshall family. William (b. Jefferson Co., OH) married Charlotte Loomis (b. MI) about 1853 in Fulton Co., IL. They moved to Tamora, Seward Co., NE, about 1883 with their son Ross Edmund (and his wife Catherine Mercer and son Roy D.) and daughter Alice.

Ross Marshall was a postmaster in Seward Co. and owned a "grocery and gents furnishings" store. Charles Marshall (relationship unknown) may have worked for him as a postal clerk.

Ross and Catherine Marshall later had daughters Della and Hazel. One may have married a Johnson or Johnston. Roy D. married Grace Smith (parents were M/M Walter Fawden) of Lincoln in 1902 and was living in Fresno, CA, in 1915. He worked for the Burlington Railroad in Lincoln.

Alice Marshall married Franklin Easley (b. Fulton Co., IL) in Seward Co., NE, and had daughter Gertie and sons Claud and Lloyd. They moved to Wilson Co., KS, about 1895, where Alice and Gertie died within a few years. Nothing is known about Claud. Franklin Easley died about 1915. Lloyd married Clara Pickering in Woodson Co., KS.

Alice, Franklin, and Gertie Easley are buried in the High Prairie Cemetery in Wilson Co., KS. Claud's name is on the stone, but the dates are unreadable. There is no mention of him in letters to the family.

William and Charlotte Marshall died in Seward Co., NE, in the late 1890's. Ross Marshall died in 1915 and Catherine Marshall died in 1935. They are all buried together in the Tamora Cemetery in Seward Co., NE. The stones seem newer and may have been replaced, possibly when Catherine died. Charlotte's stone may say "Katharine Marshall".

I would appreciate any information on this family. Is it possible to contact someone at the Tamora Cemetery who might have access to records?

I would also enjoy hearing from other descendants of Marshalls in Seward Co. or of other families who moved from Fulton Co., IL. The Marshall family usually moved with other Marshalls and friends. There is a strong possiblity of a connection to other Marshalls in the area.
