1. Birth: 9 Sept 1767 Conway, Franklin, Massachusetts.

2. Matrimony 1: Married to Anna DUNHAM., Bef 1790.

3. Census: 1800 Phelps, Ontario, New York.
The page at Ancestry.com only shows an incomplete account, most of the
page clipped off, so for Ephraim MARBLE we only see that he has 2 males

The Gandolf genealogy would only account for two of these females via
Fanny and Amanda. If Sally MARBLE was born in 1796 then she is too old,
but an error may have been made (as often happens.)

POSSIBLE DIRECT LINE (TO SALLY MARBLE MARRIED JAMES NOYES)

Possible father of Sally MARBLE.

Sally MARBLE is given by family record as having been born 6 Sept. 1796. She
and James NOYES married 6 Sept. 1815 in Ontario Co. NY.

In NY, 1815, a Petrus WESTBROOK b. 20 Sept. 1797, Deer Park, NY, died 8 Jan
1851, Kalamazoo, NY (sic) married a Fannie MARBLE b. 20 March 1801, died 15 May
1849 in Kalamazaoo, MI. Their children were Amanda, Ephriam, Benjamin, Henry H.
Solomon, William, Ethan Allen and WIlliam Thomas.

The 1840 Kalamazoo Pavilion MI census shows a John WESTBROOK living beside
James NOYES. The 1850 census shows on page 218 a Peter WESTBROOK b. MA and an
Ephraim WESTBROOK, again, living a few households from James NOYES.

Petrus WESTROOK is the same Peter WESTBROOK shown in the 1850 Kalamazoo census
with sons Ethan, William and Ephraim.

Fannie MARBLE, wife of Peter WESTRBOOK, is given as born 20 March 1801 in
Williamsburg, Hampshire Co. MA, the daughter of Ephraim MARBLE and Anna
DUNHAM.

Ephraim MARBLE was born 9 Sept. 1767 in Conway, Franklin Co. MA and died 1835
in Bedford, Cuyahoga Co. Ohio. Anna DUNHAM was born 14 June 1767 in
Edgartown/Williamsburg and died 25 March 1832 in Bedford, Cuyahoga Co. OH.
Their known children were: Ann married William LOZIER, Levi married Elizabeth
GRANGER, Solomon married Mary then Catherine CONVERSE, Thomas married Catherine
WINEFIELD, Fanny, Amanda married Ethan WAIT, Serepta, Welcome and Rachel m.
Robert LOGAN.

Parents of Ephraim MARBLE were Nathaniel MARBLE and Abigail HOUGHTON. The 1840
and 1850 Kalamazoo Pavilion censuses show an A. H. HOUGHTON. In the 1850 census
he is living 2 households down from James NOYES.

Sally is thought to be a daughter of Ephraim. There are 6 females in the 1810
census, all under 10, and only a couple of these are accounted for in the list
of known females for Ephaim and Marble. Only 2 of these females seem to be
observed in the 1820 household and it’s impossible to say who those two are.
The 1800 census only shows a couple of age groupings for the males, and the
rest of the page is cut off. There are several MARBLES in the 1810 and 1820
census and it could be that Sally (already married by 1820) is a daughter of
one of the other MARBLES, but right now we’re looking at Ephraim because of
Peter WESTBROOK.

When the Dunwells arrived in Marbletown, then called Taunton, the Marbles were
already settled here. Four Marble brothers, Nathaniel, Abijah, Ephraim,
Jeremiah, and a brother-in-law, Mr. Coates, were the leading spirit of the
settlement. The parents of the four brothers had emigrated to this section with
their children. Nathaniel, Sr. was born to Sudbury, Massachusetts, in 1721, and
died in Marbletown June 8, 1802. His marker and that of his wife, Abigail, who
died in 1825 at age ninety three, are in the Marbletown cemetery on Sweed
Road.

The Marbles were energetic men and had planted a vigorous settlement. Nathaniel
owned three hundred acres between Marbletown Road and Vienna Street Road. He
donated land for the cemetery, the church, and the school. Although some of the
Marbles moved to other sections, many of them and their descendants lived in
Marbletown for three generations. Miss Verona M. Marble, who now resides in
Newark is the great-great-great-great granddaughter of the first Nathaniel
Marble to settle in the section that now bears his name.

Daniel and Abijah Marble had cattle earmarks registered in the first town book
of Phelps. Cattle were allowed to roam in the woods then and the earmarks
served the same purpose as branding cattle in the West.

Miss Verona Marble’s father, the late Ray W. Marble, was interested in family
history. He sent to a place in Massachusetts for a genealogy of the Marble
family. Of the serveral children and their descendants of Edmund Marble, born
in Andover, Massachusetts, in 1664, all had been traced except Nathaniel who,
according to the family historian, had emigrated to York State and never heard
of again. Mr. Marble was pleased that he could fill in the “missing link” to
his family’s history.

Nathaniel, Abijah and Ephraim in the 1810 census in Ontario would either be
three of these MARBLE brothers, or related to them. As for their being in
Ontario:

Although Phelps and Gorham negotiated with Massachusetts for the lands which,
according to agreement, were to become a part of New York, they also had to
purchase them from the Seneca Indians. After much delay and many problems an
agreement was finally reached at a meeting with the Senecas held near the
present site of Buffalo, whereby the purchasers were to give the Indians five
thousand dollars in hand and five hundred dollars a year forever. This amount
to about one and one half cents per acre. Financial difficulties forced Phelps
and Gorham to allow about two thirds of the original purchase to revert back to
Massachusetts. This land was later sold to the Holland Land Company and a
portion called the Morris Reserve was sold to Robert Morris.

Due to an error in surveying, the boundary line was changed, resulting in an
irregular shaped piece of land called the “gore” between the old and new
preemption lines. The area known today as Wayne County was officially named
April 11, 1823. It was made up of parts of Ontario and Seneca Counties which
included the gore and from Seneca County the land that had been set aside as a
land bonus for soldiers of the Revolutionary War and was called the Military
Tract. Wayne County was named in honor of General Anthony Wayne in remembrance
of his great services in quelling the Indian uprisings in this section. (See
fig. 2)
