Shared note

The Lancaster News, June 16, 1906 Death of Mrs. A. J. Ellis Mrs. Elizabeth Ellis, wife of Mr. A. J. Ellis of the Oakhurst section, died last Friday night and was buried Sunday at Fork Hill church, the Rev. R. J. Blackmon conducting the funeral services. Mrs. Ellis was a daughter of the late J. B. Reeves and was about 63 years of age. She was a consistent member of the Flint Hill Baptist church. Besides her husband she is survived by six children, three sons and three daughters.

She was living in her fathers household listed as Elizabeth Reaves in 1870. Her husband "J. Ellis" was living next door in the Caston house along with Elizabeth's sister Jane Reaves, age 18. This does not quite fit with the first two children's dates.

Title to real estate from Oct. 1906, A. J. and children to H. A. Ellis, "...tract of land allotted to M. E. Ellis in the partition and division of the Estate lands of J. B. Reeves, deceased, the Grantor herein being husband and Children of the said M. E. Ellis deceased."
