The subject of this sketch was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on the seventeenth day of August 1788, and in 1815 came to Belmont County, Ohio, accompanied by his father and mother, John and Catharine Marsh. His parent remained in Belmont county until their death. On the fourth day of Jun, 1817, Zachariah H. Marsh was married, in Belmont county to Rachel Miller, daughter of George and Hannah Miller, who settled in that county in 1812 or 1813. They remained there twenty-two years, and there were born to them seven children--one son and six daughters. In 1839 they removed to Ohio, where Mr. Marsh bought a farm in the north part of Jackson township, Franklin county, and where the family has since resided. Mrs. Marsh died in 1853, at the age of about sixty-two years. He still lives on the place, a hale and hearty man of ninety-one years. In his early life he was a hard worker, but in life's declining day he lives in quietude, cared for by the loving hands of his children. Of these, four are married and three remain single. All are living near home.
