Group Description

This site is for the descendants and affiliated families of David Lefler, his wife Ellen Marshall Thayne (m. 25 Dec 1833), and his father and mother, John Lefler and Elizabeth Mackey. It will be for the posting of emails and the sharing of genealogical information.

David Lefler was born 13 Feb 1813 in Ontario, Canada and immigrated to Tama, Iowa in 1854 where he died on 26 Apr 1865. His wife Ellen Marshall Thayne (Thain; b. 17 Mar 1816, Paisley, Scotland) later followed her son John Marshall Lefler to Utah in 1873-6 where she died and is buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.

John Lefler (1782?; perhaps Loeffler, Leffler, etc.) supposed birth place is Warren Co., western New Jersey but there is no definitive birth place or date. He married Elizabeth Mackey (Makey), most likely of Belevedere, New Jersey on 18 Nov 1804 at Newton, Sussex Co. New Jersey. This is the only verifiable record.
