A Choctaw Indian
Died Oct 2nd 1849
Wm. Marcy does not appear on any census in Livingston County and his name is absent from records at the court house. How he came to be in Livingston County is unknown. An old newspaper article on Smithland mentions this grave and said it belonged to Chief Dick Marcy. Was this an error - or not?
The Choctaw were not natives of western Kentucky. How did Marcy get to Livingston County and was he just passing through when he died? Was he old or young? Did he have a wife and children?
