Hi there!
I'm looking for anything on Elijah Ward Pell, his father Frederick Pell and their ancestors of New Rochelle, Westchester, NY. I am trying to link Elijah to the ancestor who married the daughter of Siwanoy indian sachem. They had 6 sons, not sure which one I'm descended from. I know when Elijah was born and when he died and that he and his family (wife and daughters) were aboard the ship Brooklyn that sailed to San Francisco in 1846. I also know Elijah was expostulated from the Latter Day Saints for liscentious behaviour. Sure would like to connect with someone in NY who knows this line of Pells.
Thanks much,
Dana
