After further inquires with my Marshall in laws I found out the Marshall Cover Bridge was named after my Wife's Father's, (Uncle Dave Marshall). The story goes that the bridge was named after the family that lived closest to it at the time it was built. Dave Marshall who my Wife's Father (William L. Marshall) lived with since both of his parents died only lived about 200 yards from the bridge. At the present time I'm trying to find out which way from the bridge he lived. One way at this day in time leads to an intersection and the other way leads down the country road. Also at this day in time both ways have a house about 200 yards from the bridge but neither one could be the Marshall home due to changes in dates & time.
I hope this can be cleared up by my Wife's older brother Jim Marshall who was I beleive the last one to visit the Marshall Bridge years ago with his Dad, William Leroy Marshall.
His Dad showed him where he carved his initials and his future wifes initials in the bridge. WLM & HH.
HH stands for Helen Hann.
So as time goes on I have sent out word to anyone in the Marshall Family that knows anything about the Marshall Bridge to let me know or go into this web site and add anything that might help tell the history of the Marshall Bridge.
Please do it now before we all kick off.
