The Marcy family were very early settlers of the Wyoming Valley. The two brothers Zeb and Eb Marcy came from their fathers home in Dover Plains, NY. Their father Ebeneezer Marcy was the tenth of eleven children of John and Sarah Marcy(qv) of Woodstock, CT. This Ebeneezer was the youngest of eight brothers and although Ebeneezer left Woodstock, he maintained lifelong relations with his distant family. Dover plains, NY was one of the first westward migration points for the sons and daughters of CT and Ebeneezer arrived there 1738.He lived to be 100 years old and had many children including Zeb and Eb Marcy. Zeb and Eb followed their father's path in that Wyoming was the next westward focal point for the CT settlers. There are good original sources available on the Yankee-Penamite wars so I wont go into detail unless asked, but I will tell you that the Marcy brothers were very active in these excursions. It is clear from the record that everyone friend or enemy knew the Marcy family. The Tunkhannock Historical Society has great info on the Marcy family and you can buy it cheap. Tunkhannock was founded more or less by Zeb Marcy and he was its most prominent citizen his entire life. This mans exploits were many and already documented and it is said that it was the Indian Queen Esthers hatred of Zeb that caused the Massacre in 1778. Both Zeb and Eb marcy married we can assume wonderful woman, certainly hardy and strong and many children were born. Eb Marcy settled in Duryea near where the Marcy Cemetary sits. His descendants were well known in Wilkes-Barre and Scranton and beyond. There are a few still living there. Zeb Marcy's many children all remained in the Tunkhannock region. Theirs is an interesting history. Your query was about a Polly Marcy who married Orville Tiffany in 1832. My records indicate that your Polly was the daughter of John Marcy ESQ, the oldest son of Zeb Marcy. This John was born in 1769-1840, and he moved a little north to Nicholson where his grave can be easily located in the old Nicholson graveyard. John married twice and of 13 children 11 lived to maturity, ten of them having families. Polly was the ninth child of John's first wife Anna Pratt. Polly lost her mother at the age of four. The large family and children by the second wife of John may have led to Polly marrying at the relatively early age of 19. I am interested in any info about your branch of the Marcy-Tiffany tree. You may be interested to know that Polly's brother Simon, closest in age to her, began a farm in Lenox township, just north c.1834, that is still in operation today run by the sixth generation of Marcy Brothers. It is an extensive Dairy farm with four homes, 400 acres, and one of the largest barns I've ever seen. Any questions just hollar.
