Birth: 1881
Woodford County
Illinois, USA
Death: 1958
Denver
Denver County
Colorado, USA

Ella was born in Woodford County, Illinois, to Charles Williams and Amelia "Milly" (Burt) Williams. She was the fourth of eight children. When she was about 10, her family moved to Nebraska, settling on a farm west of Cedar Bluffs. Her father became a large landowner, and the family was very well to do.

Ella married John Hoshor on October 3, 1900. They had a son, William (Willie), born that same year. (Her mother also died that year.) In 1909, her husband was killed in a tragic accident. He drowned while trying to save a hired hand from drowning. Ella and young Willie moved in with her father and stepmother before eventually relocating permanently to Denver, Colorado.

Ella doted on Willie; he lived with her the rest of her life, never marrying.

Sometime after 1916, Ella married Oscar Mackell, a widower with three sons. She raised Oscar's sons as her own. She was a very kind and loving stepmother.

She died at age 77. She was preceded in death by her parents, both of her husbands, and two stepsons. She was survived by her son, Willie, and a stepson, Eddie Mackell, and his family. She was interred in Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, Colorado.
