Lucius Bolles Marsh - Colonel   
Lucius Bolles Marsh was born in Danvers Massachusetts on April 18, 1818. He was a direct descendent of the Rev. Samuel Skelton, the first minister of the First Church of Salem MA. A successful merchant before the war, Mr. Marsh was also involved in military affairs as a member of the old Boston Fusiliers and an officer of the Washington Phalanx. In 1861 Mr. Marsh organized a battalion of Home Guards and recruited for 9 months service the Massachusetts 47th Regiment Volunteer Infantry of which he was made Colonel. He commanded a part of General Banks expedition against New Orleans and later was commander of Union forces at Camp Parapet. He recruited a company of negroes which became the nucleus of the 2nd Regiment of Engineers, a force which held Port Hudson against a large force of Confederates. After the war Colonel Marsh returned to his merchant business until he retired in 1870. In his retirement he purchased a summer home in Scituate, MA and became an active member of that town's GAR Post. Colonel Marsh passed away at his Scituate home on August 14, 1901.
