My 3X Great Grandmother was Eliza Harrison Connolly. She was the grandmother of Richard Harrison Wardell. She was born in Ireland and lived in New Haven, CT. Her maiden name was a bit of a mystery. I originally had Elizabeth’s surname as “McTeague”, but I didn’t know where I got that from. Finally when I found son, Frank Harrison’s, birth record, it listed her surname as “McIntyre”. On her daughter, Sarah’s, death record in 1864 Eliza’s maiden name looks like “Montague” which at that time I assumed could be phonetic spelling of the first maiden name I had listed, “McTeague”.
I’ve always been aware of the Maria Phillips Rundle who was born in 1812 and was the daughter of Jeremiah Brice Rundle and Elizabeth White.
There is a marriage record for this Maria and Samuel Short in 1854 in Fowey, Cornwall, England. There is a marriage announcement at Fowey in June 1854 for Mr. Samuel Short of Fowey to “Miss Elizabeth Rundle” daughter of the late J. Rundle of Lankelly. Marriage Index lists Maria’s name. I don’t know why the newspaper had Elizabeth instead of Maria. The importance of this notice is that it proves the parentage of Mrs. Samuel Short.
