Matrilineal Monday: Elizabeth Sides

Elizabeth Sides is my husband's 4th great grandmother. She recently came up in a conversation with new found relation so I thought she would be perfect to focus on today. I know little of her to be quite honest. I know simply that she was born 1757 in Providence Township, Lancaster County, PA. In 1778 she married John Martin Eckman, son of John Hieronymus and Anna Barbara Slaymaker Eckman. They had nine children together. On 7 February 1841, Elizabeth passed.

Her husband John Martin - who often simply went by Martin - passed on 4 October 1809. His will mentions his wife Elizabeth as well as children: Henry, Martin, Daniel, Mary, Susannna, Elizabeth and Sarah. Two of their children has predeceased him. The executers for his will were Elizabeth and Henry Eckman of Bart Township.
