I am descended from Eliza Ann Dall who married George Washington Foreman in 1850 in Delaware County, Ohio. Various censuses indicate that she was born in Canada. An informal writeup by Zelma Linch Vance in the early 1980s included the following: "Grandmother Linch was the daughter of Eliza Ann Dall and George Washington Foreman. Eliza's father, James, came from England, and was a member of the Church of England. Her mother, Bridget, was born in Ireland and was a Catholic. Tradition has it that the fathers of both James and Bridget were Captains in the English Army. (Bridget's father, Hamilton McDonald, is said to have come to the St. Lawrence River Valley, Canada.)" At another point, "Eliza Ann Dall was born on December 30, 1830 near Quebec, Canada. She was one of eight children. Eliza was about four years old when she came to the United States [about 1834] and I'm told she spoke French fluently." There was also a Mary Dall (age 18) in Hamilton Co., Ohio, in mid-1850 (born about 1832). Perhaps she was Eliza Ann's sister. I am seeking information on the family of Eliza Ann Dall.

Hi Larry! I tried to email you but I got a delivery failure so I figured I would try to post here. I am a descendant of Francis W Dall and his wife Delilah Randall. I just found today through your post on another site that James and Bridget Dall were his parents. So, we are connected! I would love to hear from you or anyone else from our line. Please contact me at I also read there is a picture of James and Bridget out there somewhere. I would so love to have that!
