Note*   It has not been proven yet that Elizabeth is the daughter of Mathias Firestone and Anna Maria Bieber. It is known she is connected to this Firestone family but her birth date is not set in stone yet. Russel gives her birth date as 10 Jan 1799 but she has a child born in 1804 which would mean she was at least a generation older than that. The 1850 census says she is 70 and born in MD which would fit with where Mathias and Anna Firestone were in 1780. This is not proof that they are her parents but they were in the right place at the right time. Other Firestones known to be in that area in that time period just do not fit with a child Elizabeth's age. Until such time as definitive proof is found, we will keep the parents as is.

Marriage*   Principal=John Mullen2 
Birth* circa 1780  MD, Russel says the birth date is 10 Jan 1799 but this is not possible with the children that she had. The 1850 census says she is 70 and born in MD which would fit with where her parents were in 1780.1
