I am trying to document the relationship of Henry Prentice Ely to the following people: (1) his father, Thomas Ely of Carroll Co., AR and Lee Co., VA; (2) his son, James Issac Ely, spouse of Martha "Mattie" Cornelius Lennon Ely Beall of Rains County; and (3) his granddaughter, Rose Etta Ely Pippin, spouse of William Henry Pippen, of Rains County and Hopkins County. All I have at this time are a few papers of my grandmother, Zula Viola Pippin Bone Green, and one census record indicating Henry as James Issac's father, but having no listing for the mother, Sarah Jane Jones Ely. This census record was located for the year 1860 in Titus County. I am afraid my grandmother's papers are not sufficient documentation for the DAR. Can anyone help me? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
