The Watson Family

Slave girl named Ann (Marshall)

Little is known about Ann except that she worked on the plantation of Bill Marshall and is the mother of George Marshall. Apparently, Bill Marshall a white slave owner who would have forced sex with Ann who lived in a little shack in the back on his plantation. Ann didn't care for Bill Marshall and apparently he didn't care her except for forced sex. However, Bill Marshall cared for his offspring George, and treated him better than other slaves and his mother. He gave George preferential jobs at the "big house" and ensured that he had shoes. He ensured George had plenty to eat and George often sneak food and tasty treats to his mother. Ann later married Abe Marshall and they had two children: William Henry and Lizzie. George, however was raised by his aunt Roberta, who married Baylor Johnson.
