Looking for their ancestors. Eliza's maiden name is Kerr, also. Eliza was born in Mifflin County, PA Feb 13, 1849 and died in Lincoln Co, Ks Feb 1, 1930. Her death certificate lists her parents as both being born in Mifflin Co., PA Robert Henry Kerr b 1815 and Matilda Cochran 22 jul 1826. The census records check out. Eliza married Henry Kerr bMarch 21, 1843 and he died in Lincoln County Feb 25, 1927. He was in the Civil War Pvt in B Co., 97th Regiment, PA Volunteers. They were married 21 Mar 1865 in Lewistown, PA. Henry's death certificate lists his parents just as Kerrs both born in Pennsylvania. I have found census records matching to a William Kerr b 1813 in PA. Some trees list him and his father as Joseph Kerr b abt 1782 in Ulster, Ireland. The trees I have found for Eliza lists Robert b1792 as her father's father and his father as Nathaniel J Kerr b1776 in Ballbeeny, Donagheady Parish, Tyrone, Ireland. Any info?
