Simeon was the husband of Eliza Carrier.
He began singing in a choir at age seven, and started studying music at age 16.
By 19, he was teaching in local singing schools. Around then, he met Thomas Hastings, who at the time was teaching in Geneva, New York.
By 1837, Marsh was publishing the Amsterdam, New York, newspaper The Intelligencer (later renamed The Recorder).
Upon returning to Sherburne, he founded the Sherburne News.
Marsh taught choirs and children for nearly 30 years around Albany, and served as a Sunday school superintendent.
