This begins the series on our Jervis ancestors in Pennsylvania.
We’ve learned where Elizabeth Jervis was from in England, and when and how and why she came to Pennsylvania.
Let’s find out what happened to Elizabeth and her children in America.
Elizabeth Jarvis’ survey was done February 4, 1684.
What’s up with that? The document clearly says February the 4 1683.
In the woods along Ridley Creek, Elizabeth Jarvis and her son built a primitive cabin with help from neighbors.
This will be home for Elizabeth, her 12-year-old son Joseph and 4-year-old daughter Ruth.
Now they need to clear some land and get a garden before winter.
