Still in his twenties at the outbreak of hostilities, we seek information on Marshall's wartime activies beyond simply contributing funds for firewood and the repair of the Albany barracks in 1776. Although, he may have been the "Danial Merg" who was accorded a land bounty right in conjunction with the Albany militia regiment.
In 1790, his household included eight members (five boys). A decade later, he and Elizabeth shared the home with now five adolescent boys. In 1788 and 1799, his house and lot were valued modestly on Albany assessment rolls. However, we have not been able to fix his exact residence during those years.
During the mid-1790s, he was identified as one of the city watchmen.
After the census entry in 1800, the name of Daniel Marshall appears to have dropped from Albany rolls.
