        This is the most comprehensive report on Eller family history and genealogy since the 1957 book by James W. Hook on George Michael Eller. It is a massive, beautifully bound black hardcover volume embossed in gold that contains 806 pages in 8 1/2” x 11” format. The main thrust of the book deals with the family history and genealogy of John Jacob Eller Sr who was born in the German Palatinate between 1700 and 1720 and died in 1782 in Rowan County, North Carolina. However, the first thirteen chapters of the book are devoted to topics of general interest to Ellers of any lineage: pre-1800 Eller immigrants; kinship among early Eller immigrants; variant surnames; early Eller immigrants: George Michael, Henry, Christian, John Melchior, Jacob and John Jacob Eller; and three allied families: Henckel (Henkel), Buffel (Biffle) and Gottge, Gottgen (Ketchey, Ketchie). Also, several aspects of J. W. Hook's book on George Michael Eller are reviewed and updated. The later and more substantial part of the book is devoted to the descendants of John Jacob Eller Sr. It is the result of five years of research and information contributed by many people. This section contains 16,374 people and 5536 families. Over 8500 of these people are descendants of Susannah “Sukey” Eller, sometimes called the North Georgia Ellers. This massive and extensively researched tome makes a wonderful heirloom for generations to come.
