In Reply to: Seeking information: Columbus L. Ellis b: 17 Jun 1864, where: unknown by Judy Caine of 65481

1900 census Wood Co, TX, ED 146, sh 12:

Ellis, C. L., hd, b Dec 1865, 34, Md 4 yr, b MO, MO, MO
" Mattie, wf, Jul, 1874, 25, M 4 yr, 2 ch, 2 lvg, b TX, TX, TX
" Viola, d, b Oct 1896, 3, b TX
" Rosalee, d, b Mar 1898, 2, b TX

Sh 13:

Ellis, Robert, hd, b May 1854, 46, m 16 yr, b MO, MO, MO
" Mary J., w, b Feb 1866, 36, M 16 yr, 9 ch, 8 lvg, b MO, MO, MO
" Robert, s, b Nov 1884, 15, b MO
" J. A., s, b Feb 1886, 14, b MO
" Huldy, d, b Sep 1888, 11, b MO
" Eveline, d, b Jul 1890, 9, b MO
" William, s, b Mar 1893, 7, b MO
" Sylvan, s, b Mar 1895, 5, b MO
" Albert, s, b Dec 1896, 3, b MO

You say Columbus married in Hunt Co, TX. From neighboring Rains Co, TX, 1880 census:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

S. ELLIS Self M Male W 32 TN Farmer TN SC
L. ELLIS Wife M Female W 47 MO Keeping House MO MO
C. ELLIS Son S Male W 13 MO At School TN MO
M. L. ELLIS Dau S Female W 11 MO At School TN MO
G. W. ELLIS Son S Male W 9 MO TN MO
W. M ELLIS Son S Male W 7 MO TN MO

I felt Robert was brother to C.L. on 1900 census, so I questioned age of "S" head of household on 1880 census. This is copied and pasted from FamilySearch site, not handwritten record.

Here is what I found on 1870 census Benton Twp, Dent Co, MO:

Ellis, Simion(sic), 48, b TN
" Lucinda, 37, b MO
" Robert, 16, b MO
" Isam, 14, b MO
" Sarah M., 12, b MO
" Columbus, 4, b MO
" Mary F., 2, b MO
Eads, Samuel, 3, b MO [surname not clear, could be a nephew, wish I could have done better on reading that name]

1860 census Ozark Co, MO:

Ellis, Simeon, 37, b TN
" Lucinda, 26, b MO
" Amy, 13, b MO
" John, 12, b MO
" Robert, 9, b MO
" Ishem(sic), 5, b MO
" Melvina, 2, b MO

I don't have access to the 1850 census, but the Simeon Ellis family obiviously would be somewhere in MO in 1850.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
