Today in Family History - 11 Jul

Today's event is very distant and completely lacking documentation. So, please take it for what it is worth.

Tracing the Erickson line up through the Covells we come to a James Covell (05 May 1725 - Oct 1807) who was the father of Jonathan Covell, a Patriot of the American Revolution. And here, all my evidence for parentage and event dates has already run out, so we are depending on undocumented genealogies here. The wife of James was Sarah Grover and Sarah's parents were Stephen Grover, Jr. and Elizabeth Bateman, my 7th great-grandparents. Elizabeth was reportedly born on this date in 1688 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts to Eleazor Bateman and Elizabeth Wright.
