STEPHEN Ellis m. Elizabeth Rimmer 1803 in NC

Posted: 1 May 2013 3:51PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Ellis, Rimmer, Bagwell
They m. 10.20.1803 in Person Co., NC. Then...? Stephen Ellises appear decades later, in GA and TN. So do wives, then widows, named "Elizabeth." BUT: A Stephen Ellis (same?) m. Elizabeth Bagwell 12.31.1804 Wake Co. NC. Which Elizabeth is in Wilson Co. TN in 1860 Census, age 77 born NC, "gatekeeper"? Rimmer family are about to erect a granite marker in NC that will have "Stephen m. Elizabeth Rimmer 1803" inscribed. We hope to add their b., d. dates/places, and NR. OF CHILDREN. WHO and how many children did that marriage produce? I wonder if Elizabeth Rimmer died soon after 1803 marriage? There seems to be another(?) 1780s STEPHEN who left NC for GA, m. REBECCA(?). Another(?) went to McNairy or Wilson Co., TN? You who descend ELLIS may make sense of this. If you can shed light -- THANKS much!
