My grgrgrandmother is Mary Eliza Mersereau and I am seeking more info on her family. I have learned that she is the dtr of Charles,Peter, Jacob and Joshua who came over in 1600's from France.
Mary Eliza married Southard Taylor and lived in Staten Island where they had 2 children. Both parents were killed in an overhead train accident leaving girls orphans who were taken in by friends and raised. One of these, Carrie, is my grgrandmother. If anyone has any other info, please write to me.!!! I would love to share.
