Biography reproduced from page 465 of the History of Kossuth and Humboldt Counties, Iowa published in 1884:

Marshall Leonard Roth was born in Clarion, Bureau Co., Ill., April 23, 1854. He lived in the home of his birth until twelve years of age , when he removed to Du Page Co., Ill., living there thirteen years. Thence to Buchanan county for one year; thence to Iowa in 1879. During his early days he followed farming; then learned the tinsmith’s trade, which he worked at for several years. It can truly be said that Mr. Roth is one of the best farmers in this part of the State. He was united in marriage Oct. 18, 1874, with Ellen E., daughter of Edwin C. and Adeline (Kenyon) Fuller. They have one child living—Myrtle. A child was born to them Sept. 5, 1876, and on Feb. 2, 1881, it departed from this early sphere and passed away to its home prepared in Heaven, where trouble and sorrow will ne’er be known. Mr. Roth lives on section 28, township 95, range 29. In politics he is a greenbacker. Mr. Roth’s parent’s live at Hinsdale, Ill.
