Question: I recently found out I am related to Thomas Macy of Nantucket from the seventeenth century. I hate relying on online information, so I hope NEHGS can tell me the latest published material on him.
Answer: I believe you are referring to the Thomas Macy who died on the Island of Nantucket in 1682. You will want to see the following work on Macy in the book by William Jessup Cleaver, The Ancestry of Allen Grinnell Cleav er and Martha Irene Jessup: 172 Allied Families (Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1989), pgs. 618-623.
