Posted here (above) is a downloadable Word document which comprises a genealogical article about Elisha Macomber (ca. 1775-1855) of Dartmouth and New Bedford, Mass. My maternal grandmother was descended from him.

The genealogical details are sketchy; the article contains a few facts which I was able to unearth.
