I know it's confusing but Marshall Tryon died in New York City, and was buried in Glastonbury. Notice of his death appears in The Long-Island Star (Brooklyn, New York) 21 Dec 1837, Thu, Page 3 List of deaths in New York for the week and in The Evening Post (New York, New York) 19 Mar 1838, Mon Page 3. The two accounts have different ages, one 45 years, one 47 years. The latter says he died of "apoplexis" in the New York Hospital. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find either a proper obituary or any evidence of a probate of his estate. I believe his widow, Ann Elizabeth (is her maiden name really Hawks?) actually died in 1887 or 1888 (the last digit of the date of death is chipped off her headstone, but the first three are definitely 188). Ann Eliza, wid. Marshall Tryon, appears in the 1868 Lexington, KY directory living at 56 E. Broadway. I am trying to tie this couple to possible son Frank B. Tryon, born in New York, married a Lexington KY woman. He fought for the Confederacy and died of his wounds in 1863. Ann Eliza Tryon appears buried in their family plot in Lexington. Anyone wanting to can see the work done as part of a Tryon one-name study on documenting Marshall and Frank B. on (free, but you need to establish an account). NOTE: There was more than one Marshall H. Tryon! The one who married Cleora or Cleore is a nephew, I believe.
