While fighting in a Civil War skirmish in Bluemont, he was captured and jailed. Robert and Sarah had two children, Howard P. Marshall and John R. Marshall . *"Robert Marshall, Company , 6th Virginia Cavalry, died on 4 March in the Elmira, New York, prison…All four of the Marshall family are buried in Ebeneezer Church Cemetery” in Bluemont. **Late in the war Union forces took actions to render the rich Western Virginia farm country incapable of providing support for Confederate forces. On November 27, 1864, General Philip Sheridan sent the following order to Major General Wesley Merritt, commanding the first Cavalry Division: “You are directed to proceed tomorrow morning at 7 o’clock, with the two brigades of your Division now In camp to the east side of the Blue Ridge, via Ashby’s Gap, and operate against the guerrillas… this section has been a hot-bed of lawless bands, who have from time to time. Depredated upon small parties of the line of Army Communications. On safe-guards left at houses, and on all small parties of our troops…. You will consume and destroy all forage and subsistence, burn all barns and mills and their contents and drove off all stock in the region…. This order must be literally executed, bearing in mind, however, that no dwellings are to be burned and that no personal violence be offered to the citizens… The Reserve Brigade will move to Snickersville on the 29th. Snickersville should be your point of concentration.” –Cited in Jean Herron Smith, From Snickersville to Bluemont, p. 61).
