Thank you so much Connie for replying. Elizabeth is buried in Zion Meth Church Cem. along with Jesse. Their son James, my g-grandfather lived in Alvarado (my Aunt still lives there) Don't know exactly where Elizabeth and Jesse lived. Do not know where Delmar Crossing is. The Vestal pottery is quite collectable, there is a beautiful piece in the William Penn House in Abington. I have found a couple of references that state that he married into the Miller family, also potters. One book states that they were in the Zion community. Several of us have searched and searched for Elizabeth's parents, but no luck anywhere. The pottery was also reported to be made in the Zion Community, "the clay dug from a creek on the Miller property."
Mr and Mrs Bob Miller are referenced on this article but it is only a couple of pages and I don't have any idea when it was written. If you ever hear of any info, please let me know. Thanks so much, Joan (Vestal) Sells
