Biography

Elizabeth Ells was born about 1672 in Bern, Switzerland. Her parents are unknown. Elizabeth married Christian Martin about 1689 in Europe. She is the mother of Son Martin, Jacob Martin, David Martin, Christian Martin, Hans Heinrich Martin and Veronica Martin.

Elizabeth's husband, Christian, was listed as a Mennonite in 1731 living at Bockshaft, Baden, Germany. Christian emigrated from Bockschaft in 1732 and arrived in Philadelphia on the ship "Pink Plaisance" on 21 Sep 1732 when he was 63 years old.

On the same ship was his wife Elisabeth, age 60' and his daughters Fravin, age 16 and Veronica, under age 16 and possibly a son Martin Marta, under age 16. He was taxed at Coventry Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania in 1732 and then left the Township.[1][2][3]

Elizabeth died on 31 December 1732 in Lancaster Co., PA. She is buried in Weaverland Mennonite Cemetery.
