I am looking for information on My great-uncle, Elvin Oscar Ellis (1898-1965) and his family. The 1940 census placed them in Harlem, Winnebago Co., IL. At that time, he and his wife Margaret had 10 children born between 1921 and 1939: Luella, Margaret, Lucille, Betty Mae, Elvin Jr., Gilbert, Eileen, Ralph, Patricia and Frederick. I believe uncle Elvin died in 1965, Elvin Jr. in 1973 and Gilbert in 1977. Elvin (Alvin in some references) was the oldest son of Sam and Anna Marie "Mary" Ellis, born in Winneshiek, IA and the oldest of 14 children. If you know anything about these folks and could share information with me, I would greatly appreciate it.
