(Eds. Readers might question the value of publishing such a miscellaneous list; but if everyone would make such a list when they are in libraries and send the list in for publication, someone somewhere may find the long lost relative for whom they have been searching. Also, new interesting records may be found; for example, Richard Eller's record in the Rev. War for 1781 (Who was this Richard Eller?, Also, two more Ellers who arrived in the 1600's were found. There is far more to the Eller story than what we now know.

Dear Gerald,

Enclosed is my application for membership in the Eller Family Association and a check for $15.00 for the dues. I have also enclosed some pertinent Pedigree Charts to show you who I am.

I became interested in the Eller name a couple of years ago, when I volunteered to do the pedigree for a cousin. I purchased J. W. Hook's book, “George Michael Eller- - - -“, to help my quest. My cousin's grandfather was Lowery Eller, which was all she knew. There was only one Lowery in Hook's book, but he was born 10 years too late per the census data in the book. After a number of letters to Bill Eller, it was found the census data for Lowery in the book was wrong. The census data in the book was for 1870 instead of 1860, as it should have been.

The reason for giving you this information, is to let you know that in the process of finding the census error, I became an expert (ha) on the Eller name. I have enclosed an Overview Chart on my cousin, Ida Mae Boling of Bristol, TN.

Recently I found the parents of my gggg grandfather, Peter Graybeal Sr., Peter and Mary Grabill I have enclosed a FGR of Peter and Mary Grabill- You will note that two of their the children are married to Ellers. These two Ellers are Joseph and Henry Eller Jr., children of Henry and Elizabeth (Bigler) Eller.

At this point, I wrote to Bill Eller for information on Henry Eller Sr. and an application to join the EFA. Bill sent me a lot of data and the application, and here I am.

In the future, I probably will be ordering some back issues of the Eller Chronicles that will assist me.

I am a relatively newcomer to this fascinating subject of genealogy, but I am an avid seeker- Will be awaiting your reply.

I got lazy with the following Family Group Sheet and Pedigree Charts. I entered the data into my favorite Genealogy program, Family Origins For Windows, and let it make the charts for me, I modified them a little.

There is also a GEDCOM file of this data that you can download and import into a Genealogy program of your own. Just be sure to import it into a new and empty database first to see if there is any of it that you really want it in your main database. The individual numbers from Paul Phipps charts were entered as name suffixes so they would look like his charts were printed.

Since the photocopies are nearly unreadable, and my hand generated charts are so awkward, I intend to handle the charts in this manner from here forward, unless I hear some strong objections from readers.
