Thanks Judy. Can you tell me what the sources are for the info on Elizur and Prudence? I haven't been able to find anything except in other trees on ancestry but they site no references.

All the info I gave you was written there.

I have the Lounsberry name in my family history. They married into the Danskin family. Looks like they lived in Michigan and Iowa. I don't have a bunch of information unfortunately. Time period: 1860-1890s

Hi Martha, I think I've found most of what I need to document Revolutionary War and Mayflower. What I'm missing is something to tie the definite link between Emily (Lounsberry) Shaffer and Laura (Mather) Lounsberry. The problem is the death record on Emily has Laura Fry as her mother. I can explain the error but the guys reviewing my SAR application doesn't think it is tight enough. Have you found any more?
