Hi! I was just looking at a number of Family Trees on Ancestry for Hezekiah Ellis, and I believe many have posted some incorrect information. Living in Henrico at the same time...also relatively the same age...were Hezekiah H Ellis, son of Caleb, and Hezekiah Ellis, son of James. Hezekiah (no middle initial) married Mary Brown. Many have Hezekiah H marrying Mary Brown. Hezekiah H married Eliza Jane Henley, not Mary Brown.
Hezekiah and Mary (Brown) Ellis had children Obediah, Robert, Elizabeth P, and John Henry. They also had two older daughters married/dead by the 1850 census.
I hope this helps to straighten things out. It's crazy how these Ellis brothers named their children the same names! Makes things quite crazy!
