Martin Loy (to America 1774)

Martin Loy (1752 Baden, Germany—1826 Loysburg, Bedford Co., PA bur: Old Loysburg Cemetery, South Woodbury Twp., Bedford Co., PA)
md. 1782 (Bucks Co., PA)
Margaretta Huffman (1754—9 January 1800 Loysburg, PA)

Note: The link to Margaretta’s Find a Grave memorial, under Margaret Loy, does not have photo of gravestone, but has transcribed dates 1784—9 January 1800. The birth year was likely derived from age at death, which apparently was interpreted as 16 instead of 46. has articles on Loysburg, Bedford Co., PA and Loysburg History, which mentions Martin Sr. and his children. The first link mentions a 16-year-old Miss Mary Loy buried in Loysburg in 1800, relationship, if any, not given. According to the article, Martin came to America in 1774. At one time, was part of the Bedford Co., PA Genweb, although when I went to update these links in 2017, I didn’t see any mention.
