Dory,
Thank you for posting this information. I went through my data and couldn't come up with any connection for the names/dates from your line. I know a little bit about 7 Ebenezers, but their birthdates are from 1705 to 1839. The co-incidence for an Ella Rockwood, however, was interesting. I have an Ella C. Rockwood, born 1862, the daughter of *Elam and Felitia (Douglass) Rockwood. She had an older brother, Wesley (1860-1869), and a younger brother, James L. (1866-1915). James married Lillian Jackson and had a son named Wyan (1891-1967). Wyan married Mayme Bidwell and had 5 children. This "Ella" married William H. Jackson (her brother's father-in-law) and had 3 children (William J., Fannie F., and Pearl C.) However, this line were mainly farmers and I've not found any connection to the Railroad.

* This Elam was the son of Lewis and Sybil Rockwood, who were my gr.gr. grandparents.
