My relative in Maryland born 1780 was John Edason Marcellus.He was married to someone named Elizabeth T who was from PA.
I thought there may be an association here due to the names. The name Marcellus has a variety of spellings - Marsellas, Marcellas, Marcella, Marcel, Marcellus.
I thought Edason may be Edison...
