States: Virginia: Lee
I would appreciate any information that would help me obtain a copy of the will of Joseph Ely (died November 2, 1827 in Lee County, VA) and/or Frances Ely Russell (died April 16, 1861 in Lee County, VA). I need proof that Mary Ely Smith (wife of William Smith) was the daughter of Joseph and Frances Hicks Ely). I have applied for supplemental Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) verification through Revolutionary War Patiot Thomas Ely, and NSDAR has asked that I provide additional documentation that Mary Ely is the daughter of Joseph Ely and Frances Hicks. The documention I submitted was page 453 from Early Settlers of Lee County, VA, Vol. II. They stated that this information does not state the source of the information about Joseph Ely's children.
Any help in proving that Mary Ely is the daughter of Joseph and Frances would be greatly appreciated.
