There is information on William Ellingsworth children written in the Henry County, IL History book, 1910. Page 768 & 769

Also looking for any information on the Evans family. Zeppporah's father was William Evans.

William & Zepporah can be found on the 1850 census in New Berlin, Worcester Co., MD, date of enumeration Aug. 6, 1850.

William Ellingsworth is also listed in the 1860 census for Hampton Twp., Rock Island Co., IL Pg. 652. Have not yet looked at this census. But I know that my John Lyle Ellingsworth lived in here in the early 1900's.

These Ellingsworths are listed in the Archivess Marriage Record Index for Rock Island Co., IL Listed for 1833-1869

Jacob N. Elensworth md Marth J. Evans on 4/18/1855
Dolly E. Ellensworth married Albert W. Willis on 4/25/1855
Jacob H. Ellensworth md Frances J. Marshall on 2/14/1861
Mrs. Alice Ellignsworth md Mark Roadhouse on 6/10/1864
Eliza E. Ellingsworth md Hiram Bartlett on 2/28/1860.
J.H. Ellingsworth md Hannah Adams on 4/16/1863.

I have other misc. Ellingsworth info that I have been collecting for years.

Does anyone know if Lyle and Valentine are also family names. I know the Tryon comes from my Jones side. But I have always been curious about Lyle and Valentine. Thought maybe they also used family names for middle names?
