I believe that Ellison Starnes changed his name and was originally known as Ellison Cagle. In the 1850 census in Union Co., NC, 15 year old Ellison L. Cagle is living in the household Esther Starnes. A marriage record in Union Co., NC shows that E.L. Cagle married Sarah Ann Keziah in 1857. He is listed in the 1860 census in Union Co. as Ellison Starnes. They have 4 children: Margaret J. (4), Rachel C. (1) and twin daughters Roxanna E. (1m) and Esther A (1m). Ellison Starnes enlisted in the Confederate Army on 26 March 1862. He was present or accounted for through October 1864. He was captured near Savannah, Ga., December 21, 1864 and confined at Fort Delaware, Del., where he died March 24, 1865 of chronic diarrhea. His son Elias Leander Starnes was born 16 June 1863; 15 months after Ellison enlisted.
