I am at a standstill...Looking for information regarding the father of Wesley Andrew Ellis (father of James S. Ellis). Looking up past posts on the message board, I see that there was a William Washington Ellis (b. 1803 in South Carolina) and he named one of his sons Andrew. I am wondering if this WW Ellis is somehow related to my WA Ellis due to the sharing of the names Andrew (may be coincidence or just a popular name of the time). Does anybody have any info on the father (Unknown Ellis) of Wesley Andrew and his brother John Porcher?
BTW, JS Ellis is my great-great grandfather. His youngest son, Thomas Marion, is my great grandfather and his son, Tommy Marion Jr. is my papaw...
