I believe that Mary Elizabeth Geiser(Giesr)was Eliz in the 1870 Federal cenus living at home with her father with a daughter Martha age 2. She ws an unwed mother at the time. Some people show Mary Eliz as marrying someone with the name of Waible(last name) have found no other information. If this is so.... Martha went on to be an unwed mother as well.
Any one have her marrying in your line? She was born around 1847 in Prussia.
