Elizabeth Elmer was baptized at Hartford, 15 July 1649, having been born sometime beforehand. She was the first daughter of Edward and Mary Elmer. She married Joseph Edwards and died soon afterwards.


Although many list her birth as 15 July 1649, sources indicate that this was her baptismal date, consequently, her birth date was earlier. The baptismal place was listed as Hartford, Connecticut Colony. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]


When 23, Elizabeth married Joseph Edwards on 2 January 1672 in Northampton, Massachusetts Colony. [1][3][6][7]
