Hide Profile

Humphrey Marshall was born in Virginia in 1760. He worked as a surveyor and served in the Virginia Cavalry in the Revolutionary War before moving to Kentucky in 1780. After studying law, he was admitted to the bar in Fayette County. Marshall began a stormy and controversial political career as a delegate to the 1787 convention in Danville where he opposed the proposed separation of Kentucky from Virginia. After Kentucky became a state, he served four terms as an U.S. Representative for the new Commonwealth. He was elected to the U.S. Senate as a Federalist in 1795 and held the seat until 1801. Marshall is also known as the author of the first history of Kentucky, originally published in 1812 and enlarged in 1824. He also was a farmer and he owned a well-known farm near Frankfort called "Glen Willis".
