Well guess we've each found another 'cousin' - each other! Yes, Elizabeth CHARTERS married John LUTZ the parents of your 3rd great grandmother. I descend from two of their sons, William J & Zachariah.
I have all the info on Elizabeth & John LUTZ's children from a book written by Rainer Kempel (I think that's the author's correct name). The book is titled "New Voices on the Shores". The info re the CHARTERS families was taken from West. Co. Probates Lib IV, p 53; West. Co. Historical Society news letter, Jan 1989; and Planters & Pioneers by EC Wright. However, the Elizabeth listed in the CHARTERS info has two marriages to a GALLAGHER and Michael LUTZ, I'm not so sure this is absolutely correct. There appears to be a mix up with the Elizabeth. I'm thinking there's been a younger Elizabeth who married the GALLAGHER & Michael LUTZ. Info in New Voices on the Shores seems to validate my suspicion, the book states Elizabeth is the daughter of JAMES CHARTERS & ALICE WINSMORE. There is not a lot of info around that I've been able to find on the CHARTERS, making this a brick wall for me.
Sooooo, we connect through the LUTZ & CHARTERS. While not totally verified, Elizabeth CHARTERS's sister, Mary, appears to have married my 4th great grandfather, John BROWN.
Let me know how I can help and I'd be pleased to share what I have.
