I have a letter from James Jefferson Marcus talking about his last living Aunt, Polly Lee, having just died the previous year. My great-grandfather was a first cousin to J. J. Marcus, probably on his mother's side but we're not sure. She first married William Henry in Newton Co in 1848,
and he died on the way to Texas in 1853. She later married again to a Smith and then a Williams. Smith may still have been her maiden name, as J J talks about cousins named Smith too.
James Jefferson Marcus was the son of Ezekiel Marcus, from Newton Co., MO.
I have 10 letters written by J. J Marcus and George Marcus to their cousin, William Jasper Henry.
Do you know anything more about the Marcuses?
