Thanks Eva, you have confirmed what I thought about Elizabeth Anthony. I have her father as Thomas Anthony b. 1816 and her mother as Nancy Jenkins b. 1819.

I have Thomas Anthony's father as John b.1790 and his mother as Susan (no last name or birth date yet).

For Nancy Jenkins, I have her father as James H b. 1794 and mother as Susan(no birth date or last name)

On the Mariner side I have Martha Mitchell's father as John Mitchell and her mother as Roseanny Carpenter but I really have no proof of that.

I have thought about going to Westmoreland County to look at whatever official records there might be but I guess if I can't find it here or on Ancestry.com, records probably don't exist.

After reading some of your other posts on message boards I assume you live in Virginia. Anywhere near Colonial Beach? That's where my grandmother lived. We used to go there to visit (I am in Baltimore)I loved that place! Her house was right on the Potomac river, but the beach was treacherous, no sand, just little broken pieces of shells and these spiney round things that fell off a tree she had in the yard. I slept on the screened in porch in a hammock when we visited. It was pure heaven! That was 50 years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday

Thanks again Eva

Carol
