Known as "Ellen," Mary Ellen Marcy was born in Philadelphia in 1835 to Major General Randolph Burns Marcy and Priscilla Dunham Marcy. Her mother was a descendant of Mayflower passenger John Dunham. Ellen McClellan was a strikingly beautiful young woman with numerous suitors. It was love at first sight when George McClellan met the 18 year old Ellen Marcy. He proposed and was rejected over the years, telling her mother, “I have not seen a very great deal of the little lady mentioned above, still that little has been sufficient to make me determined to win her if I can.” Finally, Ellen consented to become Mrs. McClellan and they married in 1860. The McClellans corresponded almost daily during their 25 year marriage, which produced three children.  After her husband's death, she lived in Nice, France, and died there in 1915. Her children were Mary McClellan Desprez and George Brinton McClellan. Her son would follow his father into politics, becoming a U. S. Representative and Mayor of New York City.  [sl]
