↑ Note that baptism was not in St. Peters, New Kent. There is never any mention of a middle name of Ann. She probably has a sister named Ann born in 1708. There is a baptism record, which has been added as a source, that gives parents and Christ Church Parish, Middlesex, Virginia. It is one of the first counties in Virginia and was established in 1663.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Elizabeth by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Martin-4849 and Martin-4848 appear to represent the same person because: These are the same woman, both married to Meriwether (Merry) Webb. He has many profiles which should all be merged into Webb-655.
Martin-4848 and Martin-13900 appear to represent the same person because: Elizabeth Martin Webb is the same person. After this merge is complete, there is another one of Webb-4127 and Webb-7638. There are quite a few duplicates for this part of the Webb family.
