Captain Josiah W. Macy, Jr. (1838?-1876) was an American Sea Captain and philanthropist. Life and Family He was born into a philanthropic family. The elder Josiah Macy established a shipping and commission firm in New York City, after leaving the family home in Nantucket, Massachusetts, where his parents had settled during the early 17th century. His son, Thomas Macy, and his wife Sarah Macy parented Josiah W. Macy, Jr. According to Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation: "In 1876, prominent philanthropist Josiah Macy, Jr., one of the Captain’s grandsons, died of yellow fever at age 38." That same website discusses the family history of Josiah W. Macy, Jr., son of Thomas and Sarah Macy, who had settled in Massachusetts during the late 1630s. They earned their money from an oil company that later was incorporated into the Standard Oil Company under the Rockefeller family. His son, V. Everit Macy, was a prominent statesman in Westchester County, New York, and a benefactor of Teachers College, Columbia University. Catherine "Kate" Everit Macy (1863–1945), Josiah Macy's granddaughter, married Walter Graeme Ladd, a lawyer and yachtsman who won several yachting prizes, including some with his schooner, The Etak ("Kate" spelled backwards). She continued the Macy family's philanthropic habits throughout her entire life, and by the time of Kate Macy Ladd's death in 1945, the Josiah Macy Foundation had received about $19 million from her and her estate. Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation The Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation[1][2] was endowed in the name of Captain Josiah W. Macy, Jr., by his daughter (Catherine "Kate" Everit Macy), in 1930.
