RE: Herbert Ellis Jr
Thank you for the infor...lot's of Herbert Ellis' isn't there.

My uncle Herbert Ellis of Terre Haute, Indiana had no relatives of any named in your last e-mail.

The initial writing is correct, he had 3 children, Imogene, Franklin and the 3rd I'd have to research again.

His siblings were William Ellis, Grace Adel Ellis and Charles Ellis. He was my closest Great Uncle and spent lot's of time with my immediate family as Grace being his only sister he adored her. Not sure if the lady reporting understands she is mixing up different families? Hope this can be corrected. Best of luck in this great endeavor. Sincerely Patricia Ellis,(Fouts)

Herbert Ellis
I believe there is a miscommunication for my Uncle Herbert Ellis.
The first part of the bio is correct. But Herbert Ellis had the following siblings:

Charles (Charlie) Ellis
William (Bill) Ellis
Grace A. Ellis (my grandmother)
& one other child who died at child birth (I'm sorry I have no name.)

In our Ancestry book we have no entries anywhere for: Grover Cleveland Ellis, Ernest Ellis, Ather Ellis, Earl Ellis. NONE of the siblings belong to our Ellis family.

Last, Herbert Ellis is buried in Terre Haute, IN.

Ephriam Jones
HI! Nice to hear from you. There were 2 John Howells in Monroe County at this time so the tax record could be either one.

My John Howell did not have a daughter Mary Jane but he did have a daughter Emily who married William Williams in Milwaukeee.

Ephriam Jones was the witness to the will of John Howell so I figured that there probably was a relationship.

I am missing the names of 3 generations of Howell wives:
1. wife of Thomas Howell (b1758)
2. Huldah (1790PA-after 1860WI) wife of John Howell (1786VA - 1854IL)
3. Phebe (1814-after 1880 TX) wife of Josephus Howell (1822OH - 1894WA)
Any of these could be Clark, Jones, or Browns.

How are you related?

Contact me at Ltoole@yahoo.com so we can trade more info.

RE: Burwell Jones
Hello, Yes there is a marriage record for Burwell Jones to Nancy Sowers. Nancy was married in 1849 to Wilson Sowers, Eppard/Eppert/Ephest (spelling varies) is her maiden name. She had 4 children with Wilson; Alonzo, William E., George W., and Lon. The 1870 Census, shows Alonzo Sowers as living with her and new husband Burwel Jones. Nancy and Burwel had one child (that I know of) Charles B. Jones (my 2nd great grandfather)

Bethany Cemetery - Esmond ND
In response to your inquiry, I posted Bethany Lutheran Cemetery records on the memorials of Christ Heltne and of his wife, Anna Hanson Heltne. Also, I identified their spousal relationship. Are you a descendant?

My relationship is through Marie Lybeck Heltne. I am a descendant of Iver Lybeck (1827-1909) and Karin (1829-1911). Their daughter Johanna (Hannah) married Thor Iverson, who owned the Bonnie Brae Dairy at Valley City ND.

You may contact me by email at peka0025@umn.edu

RE: Josiah Smith
I don't have any information about a Josiah Smith. My ancestry goes through John Smith of Wakefield and then of course his father Joshua Smith and his father John Smith (the supposed immigrant). John Smith (who died 1842) is an uncle of mine (4th great grand uncle) and I actually have little information about him except his death announcement in the newspaper. I have not researched his line. I know he had a daughter Mary because of the will of Mary Stevenson Smith (wife of John the immigrant). Is Josiah a son of his?

RE: 73870479 Joseph Smith
He is the son of Joshua Smith and Susanna Wells. also buried in the same cemetery. I just added their family links to his page. Joshua Smith is the brother of the John Smith (d. 1842) to whom you refer, so John would be an uncle to this Joseph Smith.

RE: Morris/Jones
THANK YOU FOR YOUR MESSAGE. I HAVE BEEN TO SELLEYVILLE SEVERAL TIMES LOOKING FOR THE GRAVE OF MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER MARGARET BUT NEVER FOUND IT. SINCE MY RELATIVES SAID SHE WAS BURIED IN CHEEK CEMETERY AND HER PARENTS ARE I CREATED A MEMORIAL. I HAVE BEEN TO HENRY COUNTY KENTUCKY SEARCHING THE FAMILY OF MARGARET HUSBAND WILLIAM WITHOUT ANY SUCCESS. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON JOHN C. JONES BEFORE 1830 OR AFTER 1870 PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

Ephriam B Jones
He was the witness on my ancestor's will in Coles Co (now Douglas), IL so I am assuming that he might be a relative. My ancestor's name was John Howell (1786 VA - 1854 IL) and he is buried in the same cemetery as Ephriam's son John Jones (1832-1866) along with John's son Cyrus Howell. John Howell's wife was names Huldah (1790PA - after 1860 maybe Milwaukee). I am trying to find her maiden name. Do you have a Huldah Jones or Huldah Clark or Huldah Benjamin in your family??
