I am also "trying" to find the roots of this Marcus family.
my connection is their daughter Elizabeth Marcus is my great-great-great-grandmother. i only found out this year that she was married first to a man first name unknown Taylor and had 3 children by him, morning, John and Nathan.Morning and John were in the 1850 Shannon Co, census, under the surname of Marcus and not Taylor, in 1880
Morning is still with Elizabeth and her second husband Samuel Mahan, Morning's children are now listed as Mahan's, her daughter Emma's last name was Shore, William and James were last name Perry. those census takers really helped confuse the issue, and they were all given as children of Samuel and Elizabeth Mahan. After Morning's mother Elizabeth Marcus Mahan passed away she started using the name Louisa Elizabeth. I thought for awhile that Martha Marcus perhaps was maiden name Maulding, and that Samuel Mahan's first wife Morning Maudling was her sister, as I can't reconcile the name that Elizabeth Marcus Taylor gave to my ggg grandmother!
any help anyone can give me I would really appreciate.
