A couple of other things that I have are Andrew and Lucinda Ross Eells married on 15 January 1861 and I have Edward Jr. Married to a Mary Jane McCracken on 3 March 1863. But I'm not sure where they came from, I'll have to check it out.

Well I suspose that is enough to confuse you for a while. I don't know if you really want all of this, but do with what you want.

My only question as of right now is did you ever hear of an disagreement between Daniel, Enos and the older boys?

Thanks for everything, if you have any questions let me know. I'll study what you have a little more.
