I am in hopes that you still come to this forum as i have questions about your Rufus Marsh Way. I have a Rufus Marsh Way b. 25 Dec 1816 (place unknown), who's father was a John Way b. abt. 1786 New Lebanon, Albany, New York and mother an Elizabeth "Betsy" Hamblin/Hamlin b. 03 Dec 1790 Canaan, Columbia, New York. Rufus had 3 sisters who were b. in Jay, Essex, New York, Samantha b. 1806, Rubina, b. 1808, and Mary Hamlin Way b.10 Aug 1810. Rufus also had three brothers who I am not sure where they were born, Louis b. 1812 d. 1822, William Hamlin Way b. 16 Jul 1820 (possibly Cleveland, Ohio d. 17 Jan 1858, and John Lucius Way b. 08 Nov 1822. Any possibility that this is part of your family?
