States: Louisiana: Ouachita
I am looking for the gravestone/death certificate for Lennon Bridges Ellis, my ggg grandfather, who left Jasper County MS in July 1859 and purchased 320 acres of land at the Monroe Land Office. In 1865, he is listed in Caldwell Parish as L. B. Ellis Estate, so he died in the meantime, supposed to have been in 1862. I have not found a gravestone in Caldwell Parish, so I am asking in Ouachita Parish, in case anybody there knows of this line. His widow Teresa Moffett Ellis moved on to Cherokee County, TX with her married daughter and family, Sarah Ellis Jones and Jesse R. Jones, and died there in 1886.
