Yes, I do think that is correct, Sidmon is the Sidney or Sid I've been searching for. I had census information someone had transcribed and they had the name of Sidmon as Gidmon, so that had me on the wrong track. After your post, I searched and found the census record with the name Sidmon. I have, as of yet, found no name for the wife of Ellis M. I had wondered if there was a divorce or death as the reason for his being in the household of his parents.
