Re: Obit: Adaline Mary (Ellis) Tilton, d/o Samuel J. Ellis and Elmira Holcomb

In Reply to: Obit: Adaline Mary (Ellis) Tilton, d/o Samuel J. Ellis and Elmira Holcomb by Sheryl Williams of 11951

My research suggests:
Almina M. HOLCOMB, daughter of Obed Holcomb, was born 13 MAR 1817, and died 13 MAR 1851. She married Samuel J. ELLIS 11 OCT 1839 in Union Co., OH. He was born ABT. 2 OCT 1822, and died 7 OCT 1858.
[*I believe she is a sister to my ancestor Selinda Holcomb, who married James Wood.]

They had the following children:
Daniel W. Ellis abt 1841 Ohio
Rachel E. Ellis abt 1843 Ohio [Rachel Experience [Skaggs]]
Mary A. Ellis abt 1845 Ohio [Adaline Mary [Tilton]]
John J. Ellis abt 1847 Ohio [3]

Samuel J. Ellis married (2) Elvira/Alvira Morrison on Nov 30, 1851. They had the following children:
Jefferson Ellis b: abt 1853
Lewis A. Ellis b: 14 Nov 1855
Viola Ellis b: abot 1856


Here's a possible convoluted scenario:

Children of Obed HOLCOMB married children of Persis (unk) Ellis:
Almina M. HOLCOMB married Samuel J. ELLIS
Henrietta HOLCOMB married Jeremiah ELLIS
Child of Obed HOLCOMB married grandchild of Persis (unk) Ellis:
Selinda HOLCOMB married James WOOD (son of Lurena (Ellis) Wood)

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Lurena M. Ellis, daughter of unk Ellis and Persis unk, was born 17 APR 1805 in Vermont, and died 17 APR 1892 in Cass Co., NE. She married James Wood Abt 1825 in NY. He was born 1801 in NY, and died Abt 1854 in Tippecanoe County, Henry, IA.
