Birth: Oct. 2, 1865
Medina County
Ohio, USA
Death: May 27, 1954
Muscatine County
Iowa, USA

Elial was a son of Levi DeMott Ellis

b 09 Apr 1826 OH
d 09 Feb 1916 IL

and Hannah Rudd Bayley

b 14 Apr 1831 NY
d 18 Sep 1911 OH

He was the son of Levi DeMott Ellis and Hannah Rudd Bayley. And the grandson of Moses Ellis and Mary (Polly) Bennet Travis.
He wed Mary Ida Lloyd
(b: 1870 OH - d: bef. 26 Apr 1940 MI)--

Elial was listed as a widower on that date in the 1940 Detroit, MI Census. He was living with his son Lee and his family. Elial & Mary had these four children:

Blanche Gertrude Ellis b 23 Dec 1888 OH
d 21 Nov 1905
Blanche died as a result of being thrown by, or falling off of a horse. She died about one month before her 17th birthday.

Lloyd Ellis b 28 Jul 1890
d 12 Jul 1891 (infantile paralysis)

Lee DeMott Ellis b 26 Aug 1892 Covington, KY
d 09 Nov 1945 Detroit, MI
--Lee married twice, and had two children from his first
marriage, was a widower, and remarried. He then had three children with his second wife. He died at the age of 53. Lee's parents were not in Kentucky for long. I assume that it may have related to employment or family matters. Also, I recently learned that different rivers or waterways come together in that general area of Kentucky. So that may relate to the reason they were down there.

Please see his listing f-a-gr # 74294312
for info on his spouses & children.
