I am seeking descendants and records of Thomas Jefferson Ellis who died in Fannin County, GA in 1891. He was married to Sarah "Sallie" Phillips on Oct. 5, 1834 in Macon Co., NC. They lived in Cherokee Co., NC in 1850. My wife descends from his son, Wiley Columbus Ellis, of Cedartown, Polk Co., GA. Wiley was born March 22, 1847 and died in Cedartown on Jan. 24, 1916. Wylie is buried in Shiloh Baptist Church Cemetery in Polk Co., GA. I am trying to verify when Thomas Jefferson Ellis died and locate where he might be buried. I am also trying to prove relationships between father and son. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
