Martin Loy (to America 1741) (estimated birth about 1710 Germany-died 1779 Orange Co., NC)
md. Catherine Foust (died by 1798 Orange Co., NC)

Martin arrived in PA from Germany on the ship "St. Mark" 26 September 1741. His will was dated 15 July 1777, proven May 1779, Orange Co., NC.

Martin Loy's sons or widowed daughters-in-law are mentioned in the Early Orange Co., NC Tax Records for 1779, the 1790 Orange Co., NC Census, the 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830 and 1840 Orange Co., NC Census. I used to have links to these Rootsweb transcriptions, but URLs keep changing! So, now, it's best to view these transcriptions by going to Rootsweb and doing a search for "Loy" under their North Carolina state search. The new locations for these items should come up, along with other various North Carolina Loy record transcriptions.
