I would "love" to know if you can tell me of a connection to Dr. Edward Marcy who lived in Onslow County, NC to the Marcy's who were in Conn.?? We believe its the same Edward who is listed in the "book" as the child who "went south"?? I have had one lady tell me they were the same family as the Mosley's from VA and changed their name?? I can't seem to prove that out either, but don't think its our family. This Edward may have brought a wife with him who died at age 21 (Mary d. 1764). I don't know if she had children or not, but Edward seems to have married (Gracie) the daughter of Grace Weeks Green whose "husbands" were selling lots in the town of Onslow and are known to be the "fathers" of that city. In the stories printed about the city's beginning, Edward Marcy is not mentioned, although he seems to be finishing what they started as Grace's last husband had died and she and Edward are administrators of his will and continue to sell lots in the town for many years. I only know of 4 children of Edward and that is Edward (Jr.), Azel (my ancestor), Rebecca and Cassinah "Cassie" (who married James Steel). Edward Jr. died before 1820, maybe during the war of 1812? Rebecca seems to have not married?? Cassie Steel and her husband move away and I don't find them anymore. And Azel moves from NC to Marengo County just after 1830 then move on to Itawamba County, MS. Azel has a daughter named Cassie, probably after his sister, who married a "Capt." John Payne in Marengo in 1838 before moving to MS and that is my gggrandparents. John and Cassie are buried in the Payne Family Cemetery.
Can you shed any light on a possible connection between the Conn. and NC Marcy's?
(still in MS)
