WILLIAM H. MARRIOTT, a member of the Elizabethtown bar, is a representative
of one of the old and honored families of Hardin County. He is the sixth of
a family of nine children of Ephraim and Artimeci Marriott; the father was
born in Maryland, in 1809, and at the age of nine years came with his
parents, James and Sophia Marriott, to Hardin County. They settled near
Elizabethtown, where the parents died. Ephraim was the oldest child of a
large family, and was reared on his father's farm. He married Miss Artimeci
Hardin, daughter of Martin and Rosa Hardin, nee Fisher; the latter is said
to have been the first white female child born within the limits of
Kentucky. Especial mention of the Hardin family in this connection is
unnecessary, as the name figures conspicuously in the general history of
the State. Ephraim Marriott lived an upright and honorable life, which was
spent in successful agricultural pursuits, and died in April, 1873. His
esteemed widow still survives him. They leave a posterity of which Hardin
County is justly proud. Martin H. Marriott, one of the sons, became a
prominent lawyer of that portion of the State; was elected in the State
Legislature, and died in March, 1878, while a member of that body. William
H. Marriott was born in Hardin County, in 1854; read law in the office of
his brother, Martin H., and took a law course at the University of Virginia
in 1878, since which time he has been a member of the Elizabethtown bar.
