My husband is a direct decendant of Edward Francis (1786 MD-1848 OH)& Anna Pritchett (1797 WV-1880 OH) through Allen Francis 1819 VA-aft 1845). I have traced the roots back to Edward's dad probably being a William Francis, but can'tfind proof of this or whether he may have been born in MD, VA, England or Ireland.
