Hi Deby,

I do have some info on Alfred H. Ellett although I've yet to prove a connection to my Ellett's. Alfred was a son of William Ellett and Elizabeth (Betsy) King of Hanover Co, VA. They came to Madison Co abt 1811, then to Morgan Co where he (William) gave land in 1837 for the Trinity Methodist church, and finally to Bowie Co, TX by 1844. Alfred and some other children stayed in Madison Co.

My sources are Henry King's will (Hanover Co, VA Chauncery Wills), "Old Southern Bible Records" by Memory A. Lester and "Lost Links, New Recordings of Old Data" by Elisabeth W Francis and Ethel S Moore.

The latter two sources show a brother Joseph to William but I've been unable to find anything to prove he's my Joseph.

Here's what I've got on William and family but I don't guarantee its accuracy:

William Ellett b. 1779 d. ??
.wife Elizabeth King b. ?? d. ??
.son Ambrose K. Ellett
.dau Sarah Ellett
.son Alfred H. Ellett b. 1808 d. 1878
...m. 1835 Mary M. E. A. Hewlett
...m. 1847 Rachel O. Connally
...children: Joseph, Williametta, Alice
.son Joseph W. Ellett
...m. 1860 (?) Mary A. Kelly
.dau Francis d. 1843
.dau Mary Ann Elizabeth Ellett
.son Richard L. Ellett b. 1823 d. 1867
.dau Susan Ann Ellett
...m. ?? Oliver Thompson
.son Henry King Ellett
.son John W. Ellett
...m. 1860 (?) Nancy K. Russell
