In memory of Dixie McCrary without whose work we would all be lost.
This site focuses on the Ellis family from England or Wales to Jamestown, Virginia (1636-1642)
(Surrey or Sussex counties) migrating down through Warren County (on Hawtree Creek), North Carolina (1750-1770)
and to Nashville (on Hamilton Creek), Davidson County, Tennessee (1795-1819).
If you're in this line we want to hear from you.
Common given names are Edward, Benjamin, Jeremiah, John, Joshua, Littleton, Albert & Alfred Hardy
