Mike Hitch has added some additional information about this family and graveyard:

John W. Marsh is likely John Walter Marsh. Mike found a Walter Marsh listed as a (probable) son in the household of Charles D. Marsh in 1850. He was no longer there in 1860, which would fit with the tombstone data above. It is likely that other, unmarked graves are also at this location, notably Charity Parks Marsh, wife of Charles D. Marsh.
