meetings have been attended by ])ers(jns fiom the Canadian Dominion
and various parts of the United Slates, and have elicited a very witle
and i,'ro\vin;4 interest. A \-erv great amount of iiiformation as to
persons of Marsh descent has been obtained, and still more is sought.

Mr. K. J. .Nfarsh has published a volume of 200 pages, giving
descendants of C.eorge Mar>h, of Hinghani, 1635. Also Col. L. B.
Maish, of I5osloii, has ind)lished an account of the descendants of
John Marsh, of Salem, 163:;, containing much valuable hislor)-.

A pamphlet was j-jublished by the .Vssociation in 1SS6, giving an
outline of the ih'sct'>iJij)ils for four generations of si.\ lines, viz., fiom
John, of Salem, 163;,; John, of Hartford, 1636; Simucl, of New
Haven, 1646; Alexander, of Jkainlree, 1654; J(;hn, of IJoston, 1669;
William, of I'lainfield, 1675. A few copies of this only are left, ($1
constitutes one a life member, and entitles them t(^ said pamphlet until
all are disitosetl of,) and the result has been excellent. We have now
thousands of names of Marsli descent whose line we can e.K ictly trace
for a period of two and a half centuries, and through seven, eight or
nine generations. We wi^ll that all persons of Marsh descent, into
whose hands this leaflet may come, would give us all the dates they
can of the marriage, birth, death, and al'^o items as to residence and
migrations, and emidoynicuts of their ancestors or children, and send to
Col. Lucius 15. Marsh, 6. Cohnubus Ave., Boston, Mass.; Rev. Dr. I).
W. Mari-h, Amher..t, Mass ; or to Jr.hn K, .MarNh, l-:s(j., llartfoid, Conn.
