For those of you that have done research on the Benjamin F. Macy family he married Sally Haynes daughter of Daniel and Emily (Shadowens) Haynes. Sally had Emma, Ida, Mollie (Mary), Joseph Baker, and Benjamin F. Jr. Joseph was the last child being born Dec. 1896. Sally died in Jan 1897. The 3 younger children were placed under guardianship after there father was committed to a mental hospital. The papers state that Ida, Mary and Joseph were placed with guardians and this happened in 1899. In 1900 Ida Macy is living with Nancy Snyder 96 yrs old it states that she is her niece. (how?) Mary or Mollie is living with Emma in 1910 could not find her in 1900. In 1900 Joe Macy is living with Dudley B. and Lucy C. Haynes and he is listed as son. (why?) He was later in 1910 placed with Stephen Monroe Haynes, Dudley's brother who lived in Texas, however Dudley was dead at this time and Lucy went with Joe, but he is listed as Stephen's cousin (how?) Lucy returned to KY and lived with her daughter Mary until she died. Joseph enlisted into the army in 1918 and listed Emma as his next of kin. When Lucy died in 1920, Jan 1 and the census was taken Jan 5 (go figure) the household was Eris LeGrand, Mary, Lucy 72 and Joseph Macy 23 Boarder. I don't know if he came home for her funeral or if he was living there at the time of her death. But I cannot get the connection between these two families. If you have the connection please e-mail me.
