* Angeline or Angelina Marshall was a very popular name in Virginia in the 1800's. I have not found absolute proof that this Angelina Marshall was Angelina Noel. It looks that way, but it cannot be proven yet. It appears that there was another John and Angelina Marshall living in Albemarle County at the same time, but one of them moved to Fluvanna. I believe George Marshall's family stayed in Albemarle. Angelina Noel married John A or John R Marshall in yet another county, same time period, 1850's, and they had a different set of children, appearing in same census as the Fluvanna John and Angelina. So the parents of John W Marshall and Angelina Marshall are still unknown.
