Events in My Family Tree: March 15

Even though the 15th is the Ides of March, I didn't find any violent deaths in my family tree, which is a good thing.  I did, however, find more twins, two sets for this day.


Twins Susanna and William Zelley, children of Ridgway Zelley and Rebecca Gaunt, were born March 15, 1834, in New Jersey, probably in Burlington County.  They are my 2nd cousins 3x removed via the Gaunts.

Mary Elizabeth Sellers, daughter of Faber Sellers and Rosina Elizabeth, was born March 15, 1862 in Potstown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.  She is my 2nd cousin 3x removed.

David Michael Fitsimmons was born March 15, 1967.  He is my 5th cousin 2x removed on my Gauntt line.

Shauna Leven was born March 15, 1981, probably in Manitoba, Canada.  She is my 4th cousin on my Meckler line.

MaryLee Copestick was born March 15, 1985.  She is my 2nd cousin once removed on my Sellers line.

Twins Dara Esther and Joseph Aaron Birnboim were born March 15, 2001 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  They are my 4th cousins once removed on my Meckler line.


Leonard Herr and Dorothy Gaynor, daughter of John Francis Gaynor and Wally Mary Ruppert, were married on March 15, 1952 in Newark, Essex County, New Jersey.  Dorothy is the grandaunt of my half-sister Laurie Sellers.
