James E. Ellis and DAR


James E. Ellis is my 3rd great grandfather. I, too, am in the DAR through James Kell who was an ancestor of Lucinda Jane Powell who married Joseph Pickens Ellis.

I found a copy of Joseph Pickens Ellis's death certificate and the mother and father are listed on it. He died in 1933. I am looking for a connection from James Madison Ellis to James E. Ellis so I can add Walter Ellis, 1750 - 1821. Sometimes a tombstone has the information you need--DAR will accept a picture of a tombstone. Someone has Walter's Bible.

I will see what I can find on Nancy McClure and James E. Ellis's marriage and let you know if you will send me your e-mail address. If you run across anything on James Madison Ellis and James E. Ellis, please share.
