I am a direct decendant of Edward Francis (1786 mD-1848 OH) & Anna Pritchett (1797 WV-1880 OH) through Allen Francis (1819 VA-aft 1845 OH). I have traced the roots back to Edward's dad probably being a William Francis, but can't find proof of this or whether he may have been born in MD, VA, England or Ireland.
