- If I might introduce myself to the list, I am Prentice
Alexander, and my German connection is one Mary Jane Winchenpaw. Mary
Jane was born at Friendship, March 17,1822, married Ira G. McLellan
November 20,1847, and died September 22,1901.I have recently learned
the identity of her parents, and while her father's ancestors are
pretty well documented her mother is still a mystery. They were John
Winchenbach and Dorcas Metcalf/Medcalf. Is there anyone on this list
who can help me with Dorcas? B/M/D?
I have seen references to W.W.Whitakers book " Broad Bay Pioneers" on
this forum and I am able to fill in one name that was not completely
listed. On page 445, seventh line down,"He md abt 1817 Dorcas." That
should be Dorcas Medcalf. If anyone needs a source for this I can
supply same upon request.N/C.
Many thanks and looking forward to hearing from someone.
