Searching for descendants of my great-great-great aunt, Martha Jane (Ellis) Archer. She was born 1831 in Shelby Co., KY to John J. Ellis and Sarah (Elliott) Ellis, married Lemuel Wilson Archer in 1851 in Parke Co., IN, & died 1898 in Douglas Co., IL.
Children include: James Thomas Archer (1854-1927), William J. Archer (1855-1923), Lucy Ann (Archer) Boyd (1858-1947), Lemuel Wilson Archer (1860-1925), and Eliza J. (Archer) Gill (1866-1936)
Would like to locate a great-grandchild of Martha Jane to participate in the Family Finder project at Family Tree DNA (www.ftdna.com
). The test is no more painful than brushing one's teeth. Pre-paid kits are on hand for distribution to carefully selected cousins.
