Joan, You have just joined a very large club. Those who want to know who George Ellifritz, b1766, parents were. There is still a lot of disagreement on this. I would most certainly like to know. George was my ggggrandfather. By the way, his name is spelled Ellifrit on the original deed to his one hundrec acres on Patterson's Creek, Hampshire County, VA. I have the deed. It is handwritten on parchment.
