Rebecca Eckley was born in October 1826 in Pennsylvania to Catherine Pontzler, age 26, and Mr. Eckley, age 38.
Oct 1826 • Pennsylvania
I could not find her birth certificate but only her death certificate at the moment. Someone helped me look records up and found this:
Mary Lynn William Eckley born abt 1796 in Philadelphia. Catherine Pontzler born abt. 1802 in Chester County, PA. There is a tree on ancestry that goes back further but I would try to communicate with the tree owner to see what her sources are for earlier information. Rebecca was Episcopalian so I think you need to look at church records for marriage, etc. Her husband..
I joined a Facebook group and someone tried to help me with this research of this family … they found this … and I thought Id share! 🙂
