I am trying to piece information together. From what I've seen Captain Henry Ellis is the father of Shadrach Ellis Sr. who was a Revolutionary war soldier serving in the Pitt Voluteers under Capt. John Hodges & Col. Seawell. I am looking for any parentage connection between Shadrach Ellis Sr.(1760) & Shadrach Ellis Jr.(about 1793). I also ran across a will dated 1798 for a William Ellis of Gates County, North Carolina listing a Shadrach Ellis as his son. Census records show a Shadrach Ellis living in Gates County, NC. in the later part of the 1700's. Unfortunately I lose any record of Shadrach Ellis until 1820 when he shows up in Putnam County, NC. It would seem both Jr. & Sr. lived in the same counties around the same time. Does anyone have any documentation linking father and son? I am specifically looking for documentation linking Shadrach Ellis Sr. to Captain Henry Ellis and Shadrach Ellis Jr. to Shadrach Ellis Sr.
