In researching my family tree, I have discovered two names, both of women, that might possibly be Jewish. One is the name Margaret Lenthal, or Lenthall, born in England about 1640. The other name is Elizabeth Frum, born in Philadelphia, Virginia in 1796 and died in 1875 in Stark County, Illinois. Margaret married Samuel Hall in Perquimans Co, North Carolina in 1656, and Elizabeth married Pierre Ferbrache in 1817 in Muskingum Co, Ohio. Pierre Ferbrache emigrated from Guernsey in the Channel Islands, and would probably have been Catholic, and Samuel Hall was a Quaker, so if these women were Jewish, they would have been cut off from their families. Indeed, my great-great-grandfather married Elizabeth's daughter, and was discharged two days later from his Quaker meeting for it. This would make these two marriages a true love match, and I would very much like to know the truth of the matter. Any help would be very much appreciated.
