Eliza Haskell, born in Ohio in 1841, married Sidney Marsh in 1860, when he was already the president of Pacific University. She was 15 years younger than her husband.

When Sidney died in 1879 at the age of 53, the couple had five children ranging in age from one to sixteen. They had also lost three other children by that time. Eliza continued to live in Forest Grove. In 1893, she and Sidney's brother Joseph, a Pacific University professor, were present at the groundbreaking for Marsh Hall, named for her late husband. Eliza died in 1906 at the age of 65.
