Biography

When Isaac Marshall was born in 1761 in Virginia (some say Iredell, North Carolina but he wasn't recorded here until 1810), his father, John, was 36 and his mother, Ann, was 31. He married Mary Foote on June 11, 1785, in Warren, North Carolina. He died on April 17, 1839, in Iredell County near the Snow Creek Methodist Church, having lived a long life of 78 years, and was buried at the Snow Creek Methodist Church Cemetery, Harmony, North Carolina.[1]

Revolutionary War Service

Isaac Marshall enlisted with the 14th Virginia Regiment of the Virginia Continental Line on May 17, 1777. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Germantown on Oct 4, 1777 and remained a prisoner for about 11 months until he was exchanged. At that time he he enlisted in the 10th Virginia Regiment and was again taken prisoner on May 12, 1780 and remained a prisoner until he escaped and returned to service. He served until Jul 21, 1781 as a Lieutenant in the South Carolina State Horse. He was in the Battle of Germantown, Brandwine, the siege of Savannah and the siege of Charleston. In 1781, he resigned his commission and returned home.[4]

Soldiers at Snow Creek

A citizen of Sharpesburg township has furnished us with the following list of soldier of the revolutionary war whose bones repose in Snow Creek grave-yard: Robert Boyd, Capt. William Feimster, Capt. Joseph Sharpe, James Sharpe, William Sharpe ("Lawyer Billy"), James McHargue, John McHargue, Jas. Callahan, Thomas Moore, Samuel Wilson, David White, Adam Laurence, William Hardin, Peter Claywell, James King, John King, Ned Burton, William Bone, Robert Dobson, Valentine Tucker. Isaac Marshall, William Woodsides and John Luck, also soldiers of the Revolution, lie buried in private burying grounds near Snow Creek.[5]

Of the above Peter Claywell was at the battle of Guilford Court House; James John and William Sharpe were in the battle of Kings' Mountain; Ned Burton and John Luck were at the surrender at Yorktown; John McHargue was wounded, captured and paroled, came home, took small-pox and died; James King was in the skirmish at Cowan's Ford and James Callahan was in the battle of Camden.

There are buried at Snow Creek, also, several soldiers of the war of 1812 and a number of Confederates, among the latter the gallant and distinguished Reuben P. Campbell, Colonel of the Seventh North Carolina regiment. The majority of the graves of these soldiers are unmarked save by rude stones, and the gentleman who has given us the above names and facts accompanies them with the patriotic suggestion that the descendants or other relatives of these heroes should unite and have raised in Snow Creek graveyard, a monument, if it be of no more costly material than granite, to the memory of the soldiers of these three wars who are buried there. We concur very heartily in the suggestion and have no doubt that the funds necessary for the erection of a suitable shaft could easily be raised if some one would but take the initiative in the matter."
