Excerpt from "History and Genealogical Record of the REIDS, EELL'S, THOMPSON'S
and Their Related Families of The United States of America" By WARREN E.
REID. LtCol USAF (Retd), Everett, PA 15537, May 1998
142 Edward Eells, bom Dec 28, 1835, Ashtabula County, Ohio, married his step sister, Elizabeth Goforth, daughter of Elizabeth (Goforth) Eells, wife of Edward Eells, Sr., in Waukon, Iowa Dec 6, 1857. Four children were bom of this marriage. 102/103
(Note from K - as Edward Jr is listed with no spouse in the household of his married brother Giles in 1860 I think the 1857 marriage record may be for Edward Sr who remarried Elizabeth Goforth between the time his wife Anna died in 1852 and he died in 1859.

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.
