...I'm researching John F. ELLISON m. to Lucy J. ADAMS...their daughter Lucy Beatrice ELLISON was my husbands grandmother. Lucy b. 8 AUG 1893, Fayette County, WV. d. 12 OCT 1977. I do know of other siblings. My question is that I've looked at 1870 and 1860 census record (indicies) and see John ELLISON...when I get back to the 1850 census (I have the book) and there appear to be five (5)ELLISON children living with 2 different WOOD families and a FOX family. At this point would assume there must have been illness that possibly took the ELLISON children's parents. Does anyone have a clue or an old family story that might fit this?

Surnames: COLEMAN ELLISON

To the person or persons that I have emailed in the past year or so about Jess Coleman m. to Bertha COLEMAN. I know I corresponded via email with a person that had a Jess COLEMAN in their line. But in those emails I was looking for a Jesse (Jessie) J. COLEMAN m. to Lucy Beatrice ELLISON. I just found Jess COLEMAN m. to Bertha COLEMAN in the 1920 Federal Census, Fayette Co., WV. First, I believe "Bertha" COLEMAN to be Lucy Beatrice ELLISON. All the information given to me by my father-in-law corresponds with the names and dates he gave me for his (those) siblings in that census. Margaret, Lucy and William. (I have more siblings born after 1920). Jess COLEMAN's age in the 1920 census corresponds with the birth and death date of our Jessie J. COLEMAN (my father-in-laws father). Bertha's age in the census(26) corresponds with the date of birth that we have for Lucy Beatrice ELLISON COLEMAN. (my father-in-law's mother). If Bertha isn't our Lucy...Does anyone have a death date for! this Bertha COLEMAN? A maiden name? A different death date for the Jess COLEMAN in the 1920 Census? EUREKA!!!!! I've been searching for a long time...I feel like I have the FACTS on this one...unless someone out there can say otherwise? The only mystery to me is why Jess (Jessie) called her Bertha? THANK YOU ANCESTRY.COM!!!!
