Long while since I've posted this line, never successfully. My grt-grt gm Elvira (possibly Alvira) Lorentz/of course various spellings but this is the one we've been passed down. She was born probably in TN 1825. I have no earthly idea about her parents or siblings. She was in Saline Co AR 1847 when she married (supposedly but their marriage is not listed that co that year) Maxfield Henslee.
Please is there some Lorentz line who might have been family to this woman? All I know of her prior to her marriage is that she reportedly nursed his first wife Mary Blackwell Henslee who died in AR the previous year they married there; Mary reportedly born abt 1807 and married Maxfield 1827 Carroll Co. GA. Maxfield was abt 15 yr older than Elvira and had children from 1st marriage she helped raise. Elvira and Maxfield had 5 of their own, and he went on to marry a 3rd time in TX after her death and more children came from that marriage. Thanks for any clues or tips, Sandra
