Albert & Mina moved to Three Oaks, Michigan in 1895 for Albert to work at the Warren Featherbone Company. There they raised their two children Leota Mae and Warren Franklin Ellison, Jean Ellison's father. They were friends with Mina's family, the Warren's, and socialized many times with them and their friends.

A week after Leota's wedding at home to Ralph Kean, Albert & Mina hosted a Golden Anniversary party for J Frank & Rosina Warren, her parents, where three cousins met, J Franklin, Horace and EK Warren and where they planned a trip back to Ludlow, Vermont, where they had grown up so long ago.  Albert & Mina moved back to Marengo, Illinois, in 1908, taking Warren out of college at MSU, where they opened the Ellison Machine Shop.
