My Ancestor Matilda Lehman
I am starting to have more confidence that my ancestor, Matilda Lehman (sometimes phonetically spelled as Matilda Lemon), was born in "Holland". Both in the 1870 and 1900 United States Census, Matilda Lehman's son, Solomon Beardsley, told the census that his mother was born in "Holland". She was apparently born in 1812, although I don't know at what location. So perhaps I really do have a Dutch connection.
