The Ancestors of Elisa Sampson (Samson)

Partial Success!! Many generations of Elisa's maternal grandmothers side have been found. The same is not true for her maternal grandfathers lineage though.

Additionally, her father has been discovered as have his parents in a storybook tale that exceeds the wildest Hollywood script.

Elisa was born in about 1815 in Verdun, France. She married Henry Friedlander and the family lived in Saint Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands where Henry died.

Elisa had a daughter, Rosa Clara in Saint Peter Port and later a son, James was born in England. Apparently, Elisa was pregnant with James when Henry died and she and Rosa moved to England hoping to find a source of income.

Elisa, Rosa and James migrated to Sydney, Australia arriving there on 11 March 184i aboard the ship, Saint Vincent. Elisa's passenger record states she was born in Verdun, France.

Elisa married a second time and moved away from Sydney, leaving Rosa there to live with the Mormon mission president and his family.

Rosa married Charles Joseph Gordon Logie and moved to Utah in the United States.

James died in 1860 in Australia at the age of 20.

The Ancestors of Thomas Farrar

Success! Two Generations of the Farrar ancestry found. There is still much work to do yet. Thomas Farrar's parents were Eli and Elizabeth Shaw Farrar. Eli's father was David Farrar of Yorkshire, England. Nothing found on his wife or on the lineage of Elizabeth Shaw yet. Thomas came to America from London in July 1847. His brother, John, was married in Hudderfield, Yorkshire, England which give some indication of where the family lived in England. Unfortunately, the name "Farrar" in that area of Yorkshire is about as common as "Smith" farther south. Farrar family headstones in Walworth, Walworth Co., Wisconsin, include Elizabeth, wife of Eli. I suspect that Elizabeth and Eli are Thomas' parents and that she came to America later than her two sons. Thomas' son was named "Thomas Eli" which lends credence to that supposition.
