You might have something, here. I believe that census takers were sometimes mistaken with names, so it would make sense that Elenorah might sound and be written like "Ella N." Additionally, it fits that there is a James, and an Alice and later a Thomas. Her obituary from the Grove City paper states surviving siblings are: Alice, Anna, Pearl, Lona James and Thomas Ray. The girls had all married by that time. Sylvester (the father) was a name that was reused in Elenorah's son, James Sylvester (Uncle Vess) who died in WWI of typhoid, in 1919. The other children listed, I don't know, but but mortality rates sure were unpredictable.
The 1910 Census shows them residing in Franklin County, which makes sense as well, because it was probably Grove City, Ohio. Elenorah married a Wilkins and resided in Pickaway County, and later Franklin Co., Grove City, Ohio, where all of her descendants live today.
Thanks so much for your help! I have been running into walls for a very long time!
