States: Louisiana: Orleans
I took a look at the Rootsweb data - should have looked there first. The 2 marriage scenario (Ellsworth & Perry) seems to be the consensus. However,I don't see any evidence confirming that Bertha Ellsworth and Williard (Marcey Willitt?) Ellsworth never married or had issue. The line just ends there which might just mean that no one has taken it any further. Have you checked the 1930 census? If not, you might want to look at it.
I noticed the note about James Larue Gonegal and the "? married 1879 Jane in Lafouche, LA". If this refers to the James Larue or "Larue" / "Larone" in the 1870 census, son of widow Eva Maddux Gonegal, then it doesn't seem likely if his age is anywhere near correct. If he was 4 in 1870, then he would have been only 13 in 1879. That's mighty young to be getting married. Maybe I'm missing something or just confused - I'm not familiar with these folks.
There are a lot of resources for New Orleans so all depends upon how curious you are about this group - I wouldn't assume anything.
