Comments:
My Grandmother was Alice Ruth Eller (1920 - 2001). She married Lavaughn Jernigan in 1936. One of their sons was my father. When dad was born his given name was Conrad Allen Jernigan, but he was later adopted by Bill Riley. My maiden name was Riley, and sadly my Grandfather never wanted to know me. This is how I am related by bloodline to the Ellers - my red-headed Grandma Alice.

William was Edgars father. Wm. died in Gallatin TN. He was married to Nancy West and he was my GGG Grandfather. I think he was the son of Jacob Eller and Nancy Moss Wood. I have bible records to prove my lineage. That means Jacob Eller of Hillsdale Tn. is my GGGG Grandfather. His father was Joseph who was married to Sarah Stephens. Please feel free to contact me.

I am looking for Lawrence Eller or relatives relating to him. Though I am not sure of his spelling. This man went out with Joan Moss from Bracknell. He was based at Greenham Common Newbury, Berkshire, England in 1963 as an MP for the American Air Force. His nickname was Larry when based there. Allegedly he looked like Troy Donahue the actor. I have no other information apart from my Uncle George used to take him back to the train station sometimes. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I am responding to Teri Keener who asked about Ellerville's postmistress, Mae Combs who was the wife of John Wesley Davis. Their children included firstborn James Nolan Davis (Teri's grandfather) and lastborn Leonard Eugene Davis (my uncle). Teri's post was dated 2002 so I am hoping she is still out there and we can compare notes. Len is the last of the siblings still alive and he remembers a lot from his childhood in and around Ellerville, OK. Teri, if you are still out there, please contact me.

I am having such a hard time finding this branch of my tree. All I know is that my paternal great grandmother Violet Stanley married George Ephraim Eller on April 1 1934. I am not sure I am truely an Eller though because the info I have says that George Eller's Father who is Charles Franklin (Baker) Eller was adopted by Ephraim Josiah Eller and Mary Ann Harris. Weather this is true or not I dont know. I just know that I have had an extremely hard time figuring this out. Anyone with any info pertaining to this please please please share with me. Also, George Ephraim Eller and Violet May Stanley had 3 children, Jeanette Eller, Thomas Eller, and Marjorie Eller. Jeanette Eller is my maternal grandmother.

Who is your Earliest known Eller ancestor? William Eller
Where and when (approximately) was He/She born? b. 1831 NC, d. bet. 1890/1895, probably in Beaver Co., OK
Comments:
I admit to finding this site confusing. Is there a way to look at genealogies?

I'd love to see if my ancestor, William, fits into any of them. From what I have read here, none of the Williams are correct.

He was born in NC, moved to MO, then north to Indiana about the time of the Civil War, then back south again and entered the Oklahoma Territory just prior to the Land Rush. The William for whom I am searching was the father of Nick F. Eller (b.1865 IL, d. 1932 OK).

I have been searching for William's parents for three years without success. Help is always appreciated.

Thanks for this site.

Comments:
My line goes from George Michael to his son, Jacob, then his daughter Nancy who was married to Peter Himley. Then to their daughter Susan who was married to DAniel Mason. Their daughter Nancy Catherine was married to Easom Abshire. Their son is Ammon LaTellieu Abshire and his son is Ruric Tyree, who is my grandfather. My mother is an ABshire. If anyone has any information that confirms this, I would appreciate it. I have found by googling George Michael a line that goes clear back to a Mathes Eller in 1585. Some of what I found does not agree with what is on 'trees'on ancestry.com. Any corrections or information would be very appreciated. Thank you Sharon Dannar

I posted this years ago and I am still looking for this family: I am trying to find out any information on the Eller family. Joseph is my great great grandfather, his daughther Mary is my great grandmother. She was born in Oklahoma(Indian Territory) in 1886. It would be wonderful to tie in to this family line and find some new family members. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Would love to meet new relatives and find out more on this family.

I just stumbled across your guestbook while researching my family. I was looking for information on Calvin Eller born 12 Apr 1830, son of Henry Eller, who was the son of Peter Eller.

The family has long held that he was a Captain in the Confederate army, but after reseaching, I now find that there was another Calvin born around 1844 who was the son of another Peter who is believed to have been the Captain Eller. Does anyone have any new information on this?

I would also love to hear the latest findings for George Michael Eller. Thanks

I am descended from the English side of the family. I have read many thing about the Ellers in the USA but there seems to be no history on this side of the Atlantic. I have been researching my family tree for over 10 years now and have had no luck finding out about the Ellers in the United Kingdom. If any Eller researchers out there have any connections that could help me, you would have a friend for life. Many thanks for any help that could be forthcoming.

In my senior year in high school a substitute arrived in September '56 to teach physics. He was Frank W Eller and then at Columbia University Teachers College. If he is the same as the FW Eller in your family, you might like this note from a fellow classmate of mine, “The teacher we should have had. If that guy had stayed in my life, it would have gone in a different direction.ö Most of us were shocked by the real discipline he required of us and how much he wanted us to learn, but very quickly we came to be inspired by his aspirations for us. He was sorely missed when our old teacher returned.

I am looking for geneology information on my branch of the Ellers. I was born in Aug 1953 to Bobby S. Eller (father) and Barbara Ann Sherrill (mother) in Charlotte, NC. My dad's father was Grady Ralph Eller, born in North Carolina, possibly North Wilkesboro. My father was born in 1931 and his father was born somewhere around 1910. I either can't figure out how to trace my geneology or it started with my grandfather (probably more of the first). My father had 4 brothers and 2 sisters, and he was born in McAdenville, NC. I remember my grandfather mentioning once that his people came to NC from Indiana. Other family names include Pence and Triplett. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know much about my Eller side. My grandfather was called Eddy Eli Ellers and he died 3 weeks before I was born.
He died in Marietta Ga, May 1956. As a kid I remember going to Kennesaw Ga to see someone named Morgan Eller.
My father (William Edward Ellers) died on 4-12-1969. My
grandfather put an S on the end of our name. I don't really know why. My grandfather married Bertie Chandler.
This is all I know about my Eller side.

Who is your Earliest known Eller ancestor? Jennie Eller
Where and when (approximately) was He/She born? Born 1899 in Blair County
Comments:
Looking for information (ethic backgrounds)concerning Jennie Eller sister of Walter B, George S., Maud, and Nellie. Jennie Eller LePere was the grandmother of my husband (Charles K. Rager). We know nothing about Jennie or her family.

Jennie married Antonio LePere. Jennie died in November, 1925 at the age of 24. Leaving her husband and two daughters (Olene and Caroline). Caroline died 2/8/28 at the age of six. Olene Eller LePere had lost her mother at age six and her sister Caroline by the age of nine. Olene died in 1980. She had virtually little knowledge of her mother's side of the family.

If anyone can give us information on this family, it would be greatly appreciated.

My great grandmother was Lillian Catherine Eller, daughter of Jacob Eller and Nancy Wood of Hillsdale, Tennessee. Jacob's parents were Joseph Eller and Sara Stephens. I have a portrait of my great grandmother and wonder if one exists of her parents, Jacob and Nancy. Lillian Catherine Eller married Bailey Peyton McClanahan. My grandmother, Nancy or Nannie (as everyone called her) McClanahan, was one of their children; Nannie's second husband, John Henry Perdue, was my grandfather; and the youngest of their five children was my mother, Margie Helen Perdue Johnson, who died in November of 2003.

Comments:
Captain Calvin Eller was my great-great-grandfather. I have a photo of him which was probably made after he moved to Indiana. My great-aunt used to tell the story of when she was a girl in Indiana. All of the other children's grandfathers, who fought in the Civil War received a pension, but her's did not. That's because he, Calvin Eller, fought for the confederacy.

Fantastic Web site!! I really love to hear the stories of my ancestors and so was very excited when I discovered the Eller Chronicles.
My lineage is as follows: My parents are Harland Frederick Ormsbee & Dorothy Maria Urban. My father's parents are Ervin M. Ormsbee & Estha Browne. Ervin's parents are Everett H. Ormsbee and Edith May Hockett. Edith's parents are Benjamin Franklin Hockett and Mary Angeline Eller, her being my 2nd great grandmother. Mary is the daughter of William Eller and Catherine Parnell.
I have many Eller photos including Benjamin Franklin (Frank) Eller's family photo, whom I noticed in one of the articles by James Hook, did not know what happened to him. My father corresponded with three of his daughters.
I would love to share the photos I have of Ellers and would also love to have photos and stories of other Ellers of which I am more closely related. I do not have a photo of Martha C. Eller Gould of which I would be grateful if anyone would share her photo with me. I do have photos of all the other children of William and Catherine Parnell Eller.

I have found lots of great info on this association's site, however, not any that seems to be able to be tied for sure to Peter (who is listed as George P in Margarets obituary) I would love to hear from anyone who may have any ideas on how to locate more info on G.P.

If any Ellers are driving thru Portland to get to Vanc, BC for the Eller cruise to Alaska, let me know! also since I lived in Juneau for several years.....the Taku lodge salmon bake was the best there was, well worth the $$. and flying over the ice fields is a must!

Gayle, and probably others,

This isn't designed as a message board where people can respond to your post. I tried to send you an email. It bounced, probably because of some email filtering system you have installed.

It leaves me wondering, how do you expect to get any answers?

I wonder, how many other people post their email address, then reject any answers as spam. I get plenty of spam, I know it can be irritating, but there is no use posting an email address if you are going to block respondents.

Where and when (approximately) was He/She born? abt 1722
Comments:
The first Eller in my family tree is Caterine Eller the wife of Michael Stoker and daughter of Peter Eller and granddaughter of George Michael Eller. Right now I'm trying to put together a biography on her very interesting and long life. She (Caherine Eller) was born in Rowan Co. N.C. (md. Michael Stoker from Frederick Md) and they moved to Ohio, then the family seems to have followed westward movement and exodus of the Mormon pioneers as they gathered or were driven from Ohio, to Missouri, to Illinois and then to Iowa. Although, Catherine died in 1850 and never went to Utah a number of her descendants did. Any information on her life would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the website. I'm from Canada so I'll have to figure out how to get some money to you for a membership in the EFA and subscription to the Chronicles.

Comments:
Just discovered this site! Thanks for all your work. I am a GGrandaughter of Eli and Bettie Johns Eller. Bettie was daugh. of John Boling/Boland Johns Sr., if my info is correct. Eli and Bettie were married in DeKalb Co. Georgia in the Rehoboth Community. The story I have heard about Eli is that his family was so poor they "farmed" out
Eli and his 2 brothers and they never got back together as a family and they lost touch with each other. Eli's first marrriage was to Lucinda Sweat in May of 1853. They had 4 sons and 2 girls. After her death he married Bettie and moved to Blount County Alabama where they purchased land in 1892. Would love to learn more about grandmother Bettie and find where grandfather Eli was born and find his brothers descendents. Would love to find info on Eli's first wife Lucinda. Thanks for any help.

Comments:
I have recently posted my database, The Descendants of Andreas Heimlich (Andrew Himelick) at Rootsweb. Peter Himely (Himelick), son of Andreas Heimlich and Susannah Neu, married Nancy Eller, 23 February 1820 in Botetourt Co., VA. It was with great interest that I read the article about Jacob and Magdalena Eller of Roanoke County Virgina in the Eller Chronicles. Peter and Nancy (Eller) Himely do indeed appear in the 1850 Census of Roanoke Co., VA, District 55, p. 310b. In 1860 they are in the Census of Franklin Co., VA. I have not tried looking for them in 1870 and have been unsuccessful in 1880. This family has been difficult to follow due to the variations in the spelling of the surname and the misreadings that have made their way into the indexes.

After looking through the guestbook entries, I'm really surprised I didn't see any of my cousins' names anywhere. I thought a few of them would have some computer skills. I've just been lazy and haven't gotten around to this site until now.

I descended from Sampson Eller who was Jacob's son. I am trying to find out who Jacob's parents were, and which emigrant I descended from. If anyone has any information on this it would be very much appreciated.

Hello! I am impressed with this site. Great Job to whomever built it. I had no idea this site existed or that their was even an Eller Family Association. I have always been proud to be an Eller, but now I am telling everyone about this site. Most of my family is from McAlester,Oklahoma. Which is in the in Southeastern part of the state. We have a large Eller family around this area. I would be glad to share any information.
John Eller to Clarence Eller Sr. to Clarence Eller Jr. to Harvey Eller to Glen Eller. My Grandpa Clarence Eller Jr. is 80 years old, and I can ask him any questions you may send me.

I know this is a long shot, but I have great-grandmother who supposedly was a Post Mistress at the Ellerville Post Office for some time (I'm not even sure of the years), I don't really have alot of information about her and am having a hard time finding any out. I came upon your site and thought I'd just ask if anyone knows anything about her. Her name was Mae Combs, and she was married to John Wesley Davis and they lived in Tahlequah. They had 8 children: James(my Grandfather), Marv, Earl, Cecil, Bessie, Lydia, Curtis, and Leonard. I have a photo of her (dated 1943) standing in front of the post office. If anyone knows anything, or has any info., I would love to hear from you. Thank you. Teri

I descend from Henry Eller Sr. through his daughter Mary Magdalena Eller who married into the Garber family whose descendents married back into the Eller family. I'm still trying to close that loop yet, but I am new to geneology and the going is slow. I do have a wealth of information from my great parents (Jacob Eller and Caroline Hamilton) on through to our present day family. I am just unschooled as to how to present it and who to present it to. I do use a geneology program (Family Ancestory I believe). Thanks for the great Eller Family website.

I am looking for any connection to my grandfather. According to his WWI draft registration he was born in Ackley, Iowa on December 25, 1891. But we have also heard the story that he was born in Barrington, Cook, Illinois on December 25, 1892. He thought his fathers name was John and his mother was Lena or Rena Smith. He was born after his father had died and his mother died shortly after Charles' birth. He then lived in foster homes/orphanages until he left and came to Utah. He married Caroline Luella Kearl and lived in Laketown, Utah--dying in 1959. ANY help would be appreciated--any information about any other Ellers in Iowa???

My family tree dead ends with Wilber Eller. He would have been born in approximately 1890? He had a son named Warfield Wilber Eller (my grandfather), whom he abandoned shortly after he was born. I would love to trace my tree back further than my grandfather Warfield Eller. If anyone has any leads, it would be greatly appreciated. Warfield Eller lived and worked in Washington, DC for at least part of his adult life, but I don't know where he was born or lived as a child. Unfortunately, he has been deceased since shortly after I was born, so I cannot ask him for any more clues as to our Eller tree. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Would love to find the ancestors of Jacob Eller. I am descended through his son Sampson Eller--who was quite the character from everything I have been able to find. Jacob was married to a Susannah Unknown, but am unsure if she is the mother of Sampson or not. In census records, she is listed as 10 or so years older than Jacob. So anyone, HELP!

Hello Eller cousins,
I am a descendant of John Weaver & Elizabeth Biffle of Buncombe Co. NC. my 5th great grandparents. Their daughter, Elizabeth Weaver married Robert Pinkney Wells. Their daughter, Matilda C. Wells married Matthias Wall Faubion & they resided near Parrottsville, Cocke County, Tennessee.

I have put up a webpage for my Weaver/Biffle/Wells/Faubion connections, which is the link above.

My main website is located at:
http://hometown.aol.com/atsissie4/page2/index.htm
scroll down to the Whitaker and allied families section to find my Faubion/Wells/Balch connections.

My line of descent:
Johannes Adam Biffle & Catherine Henckel>Elizabeth Biffle (sister of Mary Biffle Eller) & John Weaver>Elizabeth Weaver & Robert Pinkney Wells>Matilda C. Wells & Matthias Wall Faubion>Margaret Jane Faubion & Henry Girdine Balch>Daisy Balch & Samuel S. Whitaker>Ugene E. Whitaker & Flossie Bernice Gardner>Clarence Ugene Whitaker aka Charles Eugene Oyler (he was adopted & story can be read on my main website page)& Edith Mae Thompson>Carolyn Sue Whitaker.

This site is absolutely awesome and given me a real insight in our families traveling together through Eastern Tennessee into North Carolina. All the researchers have done a wonderful job in sharing this information which has helped me fill in my genealogy of these families.

I live in southern Greene County, Tennessee only about 50 miles over the beautiful mountains from Weaverville & Leicester, NC. I have recently made some trips over there and marvel at all of my family history. The view from my home is these awesome mountains going into North Carolina. I also live only about 18 miles from my 3rd great grandparents, Matilda C. Wells & Matthias Faubion's farm and our old Faubion Family cemetery I'm in the process of restoring near Parrottsville, Cocke Co. Tennessee.

Due to this great website, just nite before last I discovered that Elizabeth M. Eller (dtr of Joseph Eller & Sarah Stephens) who married George Washington Pittman was my 2nd cousin 5x removed. I am in contact with a descendant to the brother of George Washington Pittman and had just recently compiled research for him on his Pittman family from Polk Co. Tennessee. He also lives in East Tennessee. We both just get goosebumps when we find all of this wonderful information because our families have been crossing paths since the 1830's from Tennessee to Texas to Oklahoma where both of our great grandfather's are buried about 5 miles from each other.

Hats off to all of you!!!
Your cousin,

I would like to learn more about my family history. I have reason to believe our family was one of the first German families to settle in the United States. Further, our family was one of the first to settle in St. Joseph County, Indiana, back in the early 1830's. Our family farm still exists today! My family owns a great deal of farm property, which I am very proud of. I am 24 years old, and a public school teacher, and weekend farmer (2 profitable things to do!!!)

Enjoyed the site very much. Have found it very informative. Would like to get to know my Eller "cousins" and attend one of the reunions sometime. Thanks for providing a great place to unite with family.

Would like to know if anyone has pictures of the earliest generation of Eller's? Also, Susannah "Sukie Eller was my GrGrGrGr-grandmother. Does anyone know if she ever married? Possibly to another Eller?

I descended from Caspar,Johann Jacob Sr., Johann Jacob Jr., Susannah "Sukie" Eller, Joseph (Joe) Eller, Joseph Milton Eller, Samuel Fairson Eller, Ida Eller, and Mildred Duffie.

Your Web site is great! I really enjoyed discovering my sister's remarks on your site--and learned a lot from her contribution. My sister has obviously done extensive research to find our ancestors on our Daddy's side of the family, the Henry Taylor Eller family. As interested in that as I am, I am also curious about his wife, our grandmother, Daney Church Eller. I will continue to search your website and continue to learn. Thanks for the great opportunity.

Comments:
Alfred,
This a beautiful website. I don't think I have ever before enjoyed simply looking at a monitor, as much, to say nothing of all the interesting stuff,-- of course.
My ancestry is from Casper (I think). I'm still looking for absolute documentation to prove that Cunrod or Conrad(t)--spelled Coonrod, in Wilkes Co, NC-- was the son of John Melchior. In the meantime, I'm more than willing to accept oral history, along with circumstantial evidence, for fact, in this case. J. G. Eller also believes that is enough, and that Conrad was John Melchior's son, and that Conrad was Cunrad/Coonrod. Thanks to him and Peggy Troutman, we know John Melchior's brother was John Jacob, and their father was Casper. I descend from Cunrod's son, Levi, and finding the straight of the siblings and children in all generations of that family is like travelling through an horrendous jungle! The names in each generation are the same as the previous generation. So many Johns, J. F.s, etc., and nick-names, too! Any help with these families is greatly appreciated.
Marjorie

I have been looking for my ggg grandfather Jacob Eller, but other than the fact he was born in VA around 1810 and migrated to TN and died circa 1890 or so, I do not know much. His son, Sampson Eller, a Tenneseean who fought for the Union in the Civil War, migrated to Davis County, IA where he married Margery Hubbard. From everything I have been able to find on Sampson, he was quite the character. I would love to find more on both Sampson Eller and his father Jacob Eller. I do not know Sampson's mother's name but dooubt it was Susannah who was married to Jacob as she was 10+ years older than Jaaacob. Thanks. Ernie

I have been doing quite a bit of research on the Eller Family for the last few weeks. I was very pleasantly surprised to find such an enormous wealth of information on the Eller family. A great big "Thank You" to all the individuals who have contributed and sustain Eller family information!

I have set up a website on genealogy.com that traces my father's lineage (Richard Rufus (Dick) Faulkner) to Louisa Jane Eller. I do have a photo of the Edward W. Faulkner/Louisa Jane Eller family, circa 1900's, taken in Hermanas, New Mexico. Hopefully I can get a scanner soon to add it to our records.

Again, Thank you so much for all the hard work!!

My grandfather James Eller was married to Martha Jane Johnson. They had 6 children. James was killed in a coal mine accident in 1925 near Sullivan Indiana
(near Terre Haute). He died in the accident 1 month before my father James (born Mar 16, 1925)was born. The accident was in February 1925 I believe. My grandfather was one of about 60 miners killed that day. I also believe that my great grandather was named Albert(?) and lived in Clay County Indiana (maybe Sullivan County)approx 1925.

Great Site, I know its lots of hard work but it is well appreciated by all us who get here and get excited about tracking down "the family". Already, I have made contact with someone through this site and have been able to get a death certificate and hospital records on John F. I also found out he was a minister and plan to go to the church he served very soon. Got a few more clues for postings through this site and think his father was Levi or Lee and maybe immigrated from Scotland. Got to check that out. It had been a deadend until I got here.

The above link takes you to my genealogy section. Although I have listed Casper Eller as my earliest Eller ancestor, my main focus has been his grand daughter, Eve Eller. She married David Crotser in Rowan Co., N.Carolina on June 2, 1795. David, Eve and their offspring ended up in Fayette County, Illinois where I was raised.
I have many Crotser grave pics up from Fayette County. Scroll down to where it says, "Gravestone Index". Below that you will see the cemetery list. Click on Sharon Cemetery. That's where several of the Fayette Co. Crotser/Crotzer family are. We are not sure where David and Eve Crotser nee Eller are buried, but they are believed to be at their old homestead in Sharon Township near Vera, IL.
There are also Crotser/Crotzers at other cemeteries I have on line. Just click on "Gravestone Index" for a complete list of individuals. There is an explanation (kind of) on how to get to the pic you want.
I LOVE this site. Thanks you so much, especially for the Eller Chronicles that are on-line. sherry smith-stanford

Who is your Earliest known Eller ancestor? George Eller
Where and when (approximately) was He/She born? May 21, 1821 Kentucky
Comments:
I have received many emails that have indicated that George's father was also named George, But as yet, I have not been able to prove that information. Many researchers apparently have began their research based on a book about the Eller family that was written about 1918. However, I have not been able to find much that would connect my Geroge Eller with the george Eller that married Christina Yost. If anyone has been able to find court records, wills, census, etc. that would tie the two George's together, I would certainly appreciate having them contact me.

He is very interested in any information from this line. His Grandfather was deeded land on the Yadkin(?) River. He does not like computers. I am in Texas, he is in Virginia with all his roots around Salisbury. Anyone have any of these names in their research?????

Who is your Earliest known Eller ancestor? John Frank Eller
Where and when (approximately) was He/She born? Vilas (Ashe Co.) NC, Sept 1852

John married Elizabeth Spears in 1888, and they had seven childen: Annie born 1889, Mary Elizabeth b. 1892, Jacob , 1893, Maude b. 1896, Mila b. 1898, John b. 1900, and Jake b. ????. Any information about his parents or his children would be greatly appreciated. I am particularly interested in daughter Mary Elizabeth since she was my husband's mother. I know she married Charles McAllister of Damascus, VA and they had three children: Velma "Hattie", William, and Grace before she left him and moved to Sharpesburg Township (Iredell Co.) NC in 1919. She married Clayton Summers of Iredell County on 28 Oct 1924, but that marriage lasted a very short period of time, and Mary's three other children were named McAllister: Louise and twins, William Paul and Belle who were born 23 Oct 1930. We can find no trace of Mary after the fall of 1931, and would greatly appreciate any information any one has about her. There is a possibility that she married again in which case it will be very difficult to find her. One name that has been linked to her was Grover Smith, an acquaintance ahe was last reported to have been seen with. HELP PLEASE! Ann

since I posted this site, I guess I should be the first to sign the book.

It is rather painless, you don't have to fill in all the blanks, but do put a comment in here, suggesting to me what I could do to improve this site.

Happy browsing, I hope you enjoy it.
