Rebecca Ellison, b. ca 1800 GA, still alive in 1880, m. in Jackson Co.,16 July 1823 Moses Graham, b. ca 1784 NC, d. 1862 . On the 1870 Jackson Co. census Rebecca is in the household of her son E. M. Graham; on the 1880 census of T. E. Greason, her mother Rebecca Ellison Graham said both of her parents were born in GA. On the 1830 census this Graham family is listed right next to Fran Ellison and Matthew Ellison. Could she have been a sister of Samuel Huff Ellison (my ancestor who moved in the 1820s to Fayette Co., GA)?

Rebecca Ellison and Moses Graham were the parents of:

It would be wonderful if anyone had more info on Rebecca Ellison Graham and also where Tabitha E. Graham Greeson is buried; if with her husband, there is no marker.
