- Dear Cousins,
Does anyone have any information on Elizabeth Hand daughter of Thomas Hand
and Jerusha; and Elizabeth Hand daughter of Hezekiah Hand.
I am once again looking for the parents of Elizabeth Hand. Elizabeth married
Thomas Hand whose will was written on April 16, 1796, and proved on May 10,
1796. Elizabeth and Thomas had only 1 child, Thomas Hand. Eleazar Hand was
Thomas Jr.'s guardian and also the executor of Thomas Sr.'s estate.
Elizabeth Hand died on January 29, 1800. I figure that Elizabeth was born
I have several theories on who Elizabeth's parents were.
1. If her maiden name is Hand; there are several entries in the NJ will
abstracts that list an Elizabeth Hand.
a. Thomas Hand will dated March 22, 1783 wife Jerusha had a daughter
b. Hezekiah Hand will dated April 7, 1800, (son of Nehemiah Hand) had a
2. If her maiden name was not Hand.
a. Daniel Loder will dated April 10, 1800, had a daughter Elizabeth Hand.
Any information would be appreciated. Linda Smith (Tunacat107@...)
