Josiah Gorgas, of Mobile and Tuscaloosa, and was the mother of Gen. William Crawford Gorgas who helped discover the cause of Yellow Fever. Sarah H. Gayle wrote in her Journal, October 1827 "My youngest darling bore, for three months, the name of Ellen, but when my friend died, with a thousand crowding emotions, I blotted it from the record & in its place wrote Amelia Ross."
