In a letter dated May 1987 from George Hoskinson, he stated that a family tradition is that James Marriott (first Marriott to Hardin County) came down the Ohio River on a raft. The raft broke apart below Louisville, Kentucky so he swam ashore. He made his way to Elizabethtown, which had not been settled for long (est 1798}, where he settled.

It is recorded that James Marriott come to Hardin County, Kentucky in 1818 by the Hardin County Historical Society biography of William H. Marriott and by Two Centuries of Elizabethtown and Hardin County, Kentucky, 1776-1976.

He was a soldier of the War of 1812, a private in Captain Elisha Brown's Company.

He served at or about the time the British Fleet were in the Chesapeake Bay, a short time before the attack upon Washington City.
