I believe I'm part of the big Francis Muncy family written up by Mary Edith Shaw, but I'm not sure how I fit in. Levi Muncy was born about 1810 in Pennsylvania. He married Mary Miller in 1834 in Jefferson County, Ohio. The children of Levi and Mary included David (born abt 1836), Adda (or Ada) J. (abt 1837), Moses (abt 1840), Margaret N. (abt 1845), Mary E. (abt 1847), and Levi Jr. (1849). All of these children were born in Ohio. Levi Muncy Jr. was born in Belmont County. Soon after he was born, the family moved to Louisa County, Iowa (1850).
Levi Sr. died about 1853 and his wife, Mary, died about 1860. Levi Muncy Jr. married Georgianna Pontzious (pron. "Poncy") in 1874 in Louisa County. Their children were Nora Lee Muncy (1875) and William H. Muncy (abt 1877). Levi Jr. and Georgianna lived in Louisa Co. and Mills Co. IA, and ended up in Sedgwick Co., Colorado. By the time Levi Jr. died in 1912, he was spelling his name "Muncie."
There was a Levi Muncy ("Muncey") who died in Belmont County, Ohio, in 1850. This old Levi may have been the father of the Levi who married Mary Miller. The old Levi's will mentions Francis Asbury Muncy, Deborah Combs, Isabell Moore, and Nancy Wallas (or Wallace) as his children. It doesn't mention a Levi. I think my Levi, who married Mary Miller, may have been a brother of James Munsey (abt 1822 in PA), who was married to Margaret and was living in Jefferson County, Ohio, in 1850 (next-door to Belmont County). I'm confident that I'm part of the "Mary Edith Shaw Muncys" because Levi was a family name and family members were centered in Washington Co. PA, Brooke Co. VA/WV, and Ohio Co. VA/WV in the early 1800s (all close to Belmont County). Any help in fitting me into the larger family would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
