I'm researching the Roane County ELLIS family and would like information about:
ZATTER CUSHING ELLIS, b. about 1830, married 1852 in Kanawha County to FRANCES CALDWELL (d/o William Hanford Caldwell).
WILLIAM H. ELLIS, (s/o Zatter and Frances)b. Sep 1860, married MARY JANE SMITH, b. Jun 1859.
Would also like information about this MARY JANE SMITH.
Any tidbit of information will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
