James Edward Marshall (1879-1955) Mr. Marshall was the principle behind the development and operations of numerous commercial enterprises in Rock Hill’s history. He was the son in law of department store owner, Arnold Freidheim and created his own businesses which would influence Rock Hill for decades. Three of his best known businesses were: the Marshall Barn on West Main, Marshall’s Hardware, and Marshall Oil Company.
Mr. Marshall was originally from Charleston and move to York County, first living in the Gold Hill Community of Fort Mill. After marrying Fannie Friedheim Marshall (1878 – 1966), they moved to Rock Hill and made their home on East White Street and later permanently on East Main Street. Many of his descendents remain prominent Rock Hill residents in 2014.
