    Notes 
    • A Robert David Marshall was born in St. Louis County on August 13, 1915, to a woman whose maiden name was Szczyaielski. His SS# was issued in Minnesota before 1951. That is the Robert Marshall who died in June of 1972 (apparently outside of Minnesota).

      In the 1920 census, four-year-old Robert Marshall is the son of Mike and Clara Marshall of Duluth. Clara, 30, was born in Wisconsin to parents born in Germany. Mike, 33, was born in Minnesota to parents born in Ireland. He was a laborer for a roofing company. Robert had a 7 year-old sister Dorothy.

      That family was still in Duluth in 1930 (as Mickle M and Clara Marshal). There was now a third child, Lorraine, 12, apparently missed in the 1920 census. Mickle is a foreman in a blacksmith shop. Dorothy, now 18, is a stock girl in a paint and varnish factory. Now Mickle’s and Clara’s parents were born in Poland.

      Mike Martin Marshall registered for the draft in Duluth on June 5, 1917. He was a sheet metal worker for a roofing company and was married with a wife and two children. He had been born in Duluth on 15 Oct 1886 and lived at 4616 W Michigan St. He is probably the Michael M Marshall who died in St. Louis County on 20 Feb 1943. His wife is probably the Clara Ann Marshall who died in St. Louis County on 25 Mar 1965.

      In the 1940 Duluth city directory, he and Gertrude live at 506 East 6th. His occupation is laborer. In the 1944 Duluth city directory, he is Robert D Marshall, wife Gertrude, a utilityman for the Division of Public Works. They live at 1616-1/2 East 6th.

      In the 1940 census, he and Gertrude and Robert live at 505 East 6th Street in Duluth. He was a laborer for a public works project (and answered “yes” for Column 22). Robert had had 3 years of high school, Gertrude had had 1 year of high school.

      His obit was published in the Newport News Daily Press on p. 6 of its 20 Jun 1972 issue.

      His obit on Find A Grave:

      Robert 'Bob' Marshall was born and lived most of his life in Duluth, Minnesota. He was the son of Michael Martin Marshall and Clara (nee Szczygielska) Marshall and the only son of four children of the couple. A sister, Florence, died in infancy.

      Bob married Gertrude Nellie June (nee Anderson) Hendrickson on August 1, 1938 in Duluth. The couple had four children, all sons. Their first child, David Dale, died shortly after his birth. Bob worked for the Duluth City Water Works Department.

      Bob and Gertrude relocated for a few years to Newport News, Virginia, prior to his passing there. His sister Dorothy and her husband, Walter Paulsen, had been living in Newport News for some time. Bob worked for the Newport News City while there.

      Bob was preceded in death by his infant son, David Dale. He was survived by his wife, three sons, his step-children, two grandchildren, and his sister Dorothy Paulsen.
