Between his duties at the Rome City Hospital, the requirements of his position as health officer of the city of Rome, and the demands made upon his time by his large private practice, Dr. Roy J. Marshall is a very busy physician, and one who thoroughly merits the exalted standing he enjoys in the profession at Rome, Oneida county, New York. He was born at Somerville, New York, in 1886, the son of James W. and Delia (Freeman) Marshall, both natives of New York, the mother's family being among the earliest settlers near Herkimer. The paternal ancestry is English, and the Doctor's father was engaged in farming and in the manufacture of cheese. He was also somewhat interested in politics, and for fifteen years was supervisor of the town of Rossie. The father died in 1905 and the mother passed away in 1923. They were the parents of five children, of whom Roy J. Marshall was the youngest.

Roy J. Marshall obtained his elementary education in the public schools of Somerville and Malone, and pursued his professional studies at Albany Medical College, Albany, New York, from which he received the degree of M. D. and graduated in 1910, after which he served for one year as interne in the Cohoes Hospital, at Cohoes, New York. When his interneship had been finished Dr. Marshall moved to Rome and began the practice of medicine, in which he has built up an extensive connection. He is on the staff of the Rome City Hospital and is also health officer of the city of Rome.

In 1912 Dr. Marshall was married to Miss Frances B. McCarthy, daughter of Dennis F. McCarthy, of Fort Covington, New York. The three children born to them are: Catharine, Roy and Elizabeth. Mrs. Marshall is a member of the Woman's Auxiliary of the American Legion. During the World war Dr. Marshall volunteered for service in the Medical Corps, and for eleven months of the time he was in the service he was stationed with Base Hospital No. 82, in France, being discharged with the rank of captain. He is a republican in his political ideals and a member of the Baptist faith in his religious convictions. Dr. Marshall is a member of the American, New York State and Oneida County Medical Associations. Fraternally he is affiliated with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and the Independent Order of Foresters. He is also a member of the Teugega Country Club, Nu Sigma Nu fraternity and the American Legion. Golf, motoring and fishing are Dr. Marshall's recreations.
