One Person at a Time...Elizabeth

~Even though I have a lot of people in my family tree, I also have a lot of "holes" that need more research. Over the next few months, I am going to attempt to patch up those holes by doing research one person at a time- starting at the beginning of the list~

Today's Name: Elizabeth

I have 22 women in my tree named "Elizabeth" (or some spelling variation of the name) that I need more research on. This name will probably take up the next 6-7 posts:

Elisabeth was born about 1665. She married Heinrich Fehring and they had at least 1 son: Rudolph (d. 1765).

After Research:
I didn't find too much on Elisabeth. She was born about 1665 in Kirchspiel, Germany and died after 1697 in Germany. She married Heinrich Fehring (1655-after 1697) in 1688 in Emsburen, Germany. They had at least one son: Rudolph (1693-1765).
