It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Elizabeth by comparing test results with other
carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Elizabeth:
I can find no evidence that John Marsh and Susannah Skelton had a daughter Elizabeth born in 1638. They did have an Elizabeth, but she was born in 1646 and then disappears from the records. To which couple does this profile Elizabeth belong?
