Emmy Ellington Elkins of Caddo Gap
Dear Sandra,

My mom & her sisters actually knew their grandpa, Nathaniel Ellington, as they were raised for many years @ Caddo Gap before moving to NE TX. Nathaniel was a brother to your ancestor & to Emmy. Emmy was spoken-of highly by my mom's Grandpa Nathaniel. Emmy died-way-before they came along (or even their dad was born). But, Nathaniel told them how wonderful Emmy was & gave her photo to my mom (as she was the youngest granddaughter). "He" told her that Emmy had 1 child who was named Fernando who stayed @ Caddo Gap "after" Emmy's husband moved to Fannin Co. in NE TX (which is where my mom's own family moved many years later). This is where I got the 1child for Emmy. Nathaniel said his nephew Fernando & his own big family were a comfort to him when my mom's family left Caddo Gap.

I tried to contact the man who has Emmy's memorial without success. He had Son Fernando's kids listed & linked as Emmy's. After many many months, find-a-grave listed this contributor as inactive. Then, poof!...I checked on Emmy one day; & he had deleted those grandchildren & added: a few words, capital letters, & exclamation marks to a message I had left for him & posted it as an inscription. I'm always happy to get clarity on ancestors & am fallible & happy to correct any errors that I have made...because the whole point is to leave an accurate family history, right?

So, thank you for your information which is great...but I can't change Emmy's memorial nor what the guy has listed on that page.

Have you made a memorial for your ancestor who is Emmy's brother? I Love it when families are linked to one another!

Best to you & thanks for your help,

Hi Sandra,

I am not related to Catherine Langford so I am transferring her page over to you.

Have a great day!
