Midland in People's Lives

John Marshall: I was born here in a log cabin in 1755, in a small village outside this town, called Germantown. I was the son of a politician and his well connected wife, of noble Virginian gentry lineage. I was my parent's eldest child and eldest son, and they had high hopes for me. As a young child, I was known for being intelligent and entertaining. My family moved in 1763, when I was 8 years old, to Markham, Virginia, after my father accepted a lucrative job from the eminent Fairfax family.
