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 either 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. He gave George preferential jobs at the "big house" and ensured that he had shoes. George Marshall would become a house boy and carriage driver for his father Bill. He ensured George had plenty to eat and George would bring desserts and other tasty foods (that were served in the Master's home) to his mother Ann who had to remain in the slave quarters where the food was meager and plain.
With some research, it believed Ann full name was Ann Waddill
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.
It is assumed that Roberta was the sister of Ann.
