I adopted this orphan profile on 01 March 2017.

I believe that Anna (LENTHAL) EELLS is the paternal 8th great grandmother of my deceased sister-in-law, O. Scharleen (LIVINGSTON) SISSON.

I don't believe that birth in 1649 in Massachusetts is correct. Rev. Robert LENTHALL had returned to England in 1642, and stayed there until his death in 1658.

In my deceased sister-in-law's tree at, I have:

ANNA LENTHAL 1637–1687

Birth 13 AUGUST 1637 • England

Death FEB 1687 • Milford, New Haven Co., Connecticut No source for this birth date.

I have seen an article that states birth as 1644 in Surrey, England.
