    Biography
    • Martin McVay was born in Green Co., PA, and moved with his parents to the
      Cleveland area about 1814. In 1830 he married Lucy Sumner. Martin's younger
      brother, Benjamin, had moved to Branch Co., Mich. at age 15, and he must have
      encouraged Martin to move also. Martin came to Mich. in 1834, but owing to
      poor health, went back to Ohio. In 1857 Martin moved his family to Quincy Twp
      where he settled on a 40 acre farm in Section 1, about 2 miles from Benjamin.
      He remained there until his death.
