Searching for descendants of my great-great uncle, Clarke Sanford Ellis. He was born 1853 in Lincoln Co., MO to Isaac Newton Ellis and Sarah (Sullenger) Ellis, married 1) Mary Virginia McDowell in 1875, 2) Mary Virginia Wilson in 1884. He died 1907 in Montgomery Co., MO.
Children by first wife include: Walter Jefferson Ellis (1876-1966), Claude Newton Ellis (1879-1958), and Margaret Vesta (Ellis) Kelly (1881-1926)
Would like to locate a great-grandchild of Clarke and his first wife to participate in the Family Finder project at Family Tree DNA (www.ftdna.com
). The test is no more painful than brushing one's teeth. Pre-paid kits are on hand for distribution to carefully selected cousins.
