Trying to find information on Sylvia Mix and her potential relationship to Tom Mix, the cowboy actor. I am working on the Marcy Family genealogy.
What I know...At age 53, John Judson Marcy married Sylvia Mix who was age 16 (his second marrage). John Judson and Sylvia had 10 children, 2 boys and 8 girls.(note:1st son, Gerald Judson Marcy is my Great grandfather). She was born on August 20, 1842 in Albany, N.Y. and died at age 60, Dec. 17, 1902 in Willington, Conn. She is buried in the old Willington cemetery. She married William H. Holt of Willington on May 14, 1892 after the death of John Judson. Inscription on grave: “Holt, Sylvia M. Marcy, wife of William Henry, born 1842, died 1902”. Sylvia was reported to be related to Tom Mix, the famous cowboy movie.
