Margaret: This is your lucky day. Elizabeth, bornMay 12, 1821, Stark, Ill. Married Samuel L. Sturm, 4th of October 1838; she died March 9, 1910 and is buried in Osceola Grove Cemetery, Bradford, Stark, Ill.
Her father, John T. Phenix was born in Deleware, N.Y., born December 31, 1791, his father is listed as Stephen, christened May 8, 1757, no mother is ever mentioned anywhere. Matheus Phenix, born about 1731 in Ulster, N.Y., his wife was Maria Jons, they were married about 1757 in Ulster, N.Y. As far as I know there is no information that would us to believe there was any American Indian in their background.
If you would write me using my e-mail address I will be glad to give you more information about John T's family and his descendents, it's a lot to print here. - Betty
