In 1843, when the marriage question engaged the attention and called forth not a little of the talent and Biblical lore of the Church, he made the argument in that relation before the Synod of New York, which was afterwards published under the title, An Inquiry

concerning the Lawfulness of Marriage between Parties previously related by Affinity; also a short Iistory of Opinions in different Ages and Countries, and of the Action of the Ecclesiastical Bodies on that Subject. He died in 1864. Mr. Marshall possessed ntne analytical powers, comprehensive and penetrating; his sermons were remarkably exact, his masnner rather studied. See Wilson, Presb. Hist.
