About the Marshalls...well I rather expected them to be from Baltimore Co MD...because I know that the Wilburns were in Baltimore Co MD and then by 1751 received a land grant from Lord Granville and settled into Orange Co NC by 1753...And living there in same district was John Marshall (1753) families lived near the Haw River...There were at least five families who lived in Baltimore who received land grants and settled into Orange Co NC at the same time...And all of these families appear to have been allied in Baltimore Co MD...
I noted that names of over twenty families who were living in Orange Co NC and allied with Wilburns either before settling in, during or afterwards...John Marshall and his family were one of these families...now this might NOT be your direct ancestor but my hunch is that this John Marshall is related and is also related to the Wilburn/Marhsall line in Surry NC....
I am no where close to sorting out these various lines...probably never will be, but I can now track down the families that were ancestors..
Anyhow, the Wilburns in Surry NC m into Marshall families were also allied with John Anderson...(again, in Cumblerland Co KY)....descendants of Edward Wilburn of Surry NC...
Whew! These lines do get tangled..(swart and Duke are surnmaes unknown to me.)
