I am searching for information on Martha "Patsy Ann" Pitzer, born in Allegheny County, Virginia in about 1820 or earlier. She is reported to be a descendant of William Clopton of Yorktown, Virginia. She married Judge Richard Smith in the 1830s, or thereabouts, and had a daughter, Frances Smith, who married John Dorchester sometime before 1853. Frances Smith is my great-grandmother, whose youngest child, Lillian Dorchester, was my grandmother.
If you have any information on Martha "Patsy Ann" Pitzer, I would appreciate it if you could e-mail me at the address above. I am especially interested in Martha Pitzer's mother, and her mother, as I am researching my female line back to Europe as part of a Mitochondrial DNA project.
Thank you for your help.
