My books do not have current information in them. You might want to take a look at birth certificates at the courthouse in IOW for your great grandma Ella. She would not be on the 1910 census if she married after that time. The 1910 census is the latest released census that anyone has access to at this time. They may have been visiting friends or relatives when the census taker came. Your best bet may be an obit in the newspaper or a death certificate in order to find her parents names. Take a look in the 1900 census for Newport News and see what men are there named Norsworthy that may have a daughter age 19. Sometimes the census takers wrote the wrong name for a child. In my case for instance, my grandmother was named by her parents but she changed it when she was twelve so she is found under two different names in the census.

Happy hunting.
