Joseph Marsee died in 1814, in Knox County, KY, on Yellow Creek. My ancestor Henry Rains, 1767-1838, appraised his estate. Joseph was born in VA ca. 1771. He had two sons to become preachers, Rev. Joseph Marsee, who married Rebecah Harris, and Rev. Thomas Marsee, who married Mary King May 22, 1839, in Knox, KY. Mary was the daughter of Spencer King and Mary Rains. Joseph Marsee also had a brother named Rev. Thomas Marsee, who married Nancy Turner, sister of my ancestor John Turner, who married Elizabeth Marsee, daughter of Joseph. Joseph's daughter Peggy Marsee, born 1806, married Ballenger Rains, son of Henry Rains, 1767-1838, and Martha Lane. Joseph Marsee called himself "Massey" in early documents. This Marsee family, and their children and grandchildren married into the Rains family quite extensively.
