I have been told since I was a small child that my GGG grandfather, William Marshall, owned a plantation in KY and lost it in a gambling match. This would have been in the mid 1800's since my GG grandfather was born in 1856 in Louisville, KY. I have always been told William owned a plantation and a hotel in Bardstown, KY. The hotel was supposedly the Bardstown Inn. I cannot find any records of a plantation owned by any Marshall. I know his wife is Anna Botts (according to my research, but others said her name was Sarah). I know they had a son named David C Marshall. I am trying to trace my Marshall line and hit a brick wall with William. I cannot figure out who he is. I cannot find any information on him. He is not mentioned in any records I have found for his wife or his son other than the marriage certificate and David's death certificate. Any help is appreciated.
