Elbridge Gerry and Phipps connections?
I'm looking for anyone who knows of any connections between Elbridge Gerry and Phipps families from Massachusetts pre-1850. My gg-grandmother, Claudia/Claudine Phipps was born in Texas to a Phipps born in Massachusetts. She married Charles Notz of Switzerland, and among other children had an Elbridge Gerry Notz. May be a coincidence but I'm wondering if Phipps was from the Gerry family? Any connections would be appreciated!
