NOTE:  The putting of Ann Marshman (1784-1856) as a daughter of John and Anne (Angel) Marshman  is supported by two DNA matches with widespread ancestors of John and Anne (Angel) Marshman by means of son James Marshman (13 cM) and Martha Marshman (10 cM), plus one DNA match with widespread ancestors of John and Jane (Criminal) Marshman.  That is the writer’s present pondering and is topic to alter if new info is obtained.
