Hi Eleanor,

I found the William Ellis family in the 1860 census for Lexington, Sanilac, Mich, and added a couple of children (born Canada) to the family.

Based on the birth dates and locations of his children, William Ellis must have moved his family from Canada to Michigan in the 1853-1856 timeframe. Therefore, William Ellis should show up in the 1851 census for Canada.

This William Ellis might possibly have been the William Ellis listed in the 1851 Canada census for Canada West, Leeds County, Ontario, Canada, but one can not be sure without more information. The 1851 Canada census lists head of household only, and there were several William Ellis in the census. The one I refer to merely says labourer, Ireland, Church of England, 30 next birthday.

I found Andrew "Thomas" Ellis in your message board posts. You found "Thomas" on his grave stone. I found Andrew with a middle initial "T" in his 1880 census record. I have no better information, but assume his middle name was probably 'Thomas".

My latest record for the William Ellis family:
