Eller Chronicles NOV 1988 - p3


From Clarice Eller Stanley of Martins Ferry, OH
To Charlotte Eller Marshall:

Enclosed find check for my dues for 1989.

Thank you very much for having my family history printed in the Chronicles. I have already heard from someone confirming the fact that JACOB ELLER & ELIAS ELLER who settled in Missouri are brothers.

Enc. is a SASE for my brother, Charles V. Eller. Would you please forward him a membership application. Thank you again.

Sincerely, Clarice V. Eller Stanley.


From Elise P. Kidd of Austin Texas:

Dear Mrs. Marshall:

I have so enjoyed copies of "The Eller Chronicles" secured from Gerald Eller this year. My check for $15.00 is enclosed to cover dues for 1989.

My great-great grandmother was Sarah "Sallie" Eller who was born 3-21-1805 in Old Rowan County, NC, the daughter of Henry Eller. She married John Haines, a desc. of Marcus Hoehns, pioneer Moravian colonist, 7-24-1820 in Rowan Co. Her death occurred 6-1-1873 and she is buried at Midway Methodist Church Cemetery, near Winston-Salem. On one map I noticed Midway listed also as ELLER.

Congratulations and best wishes to you and all those who have founded this organization. I, too, find genealogy very fascinating and rewarding. My goal is to trace all my ancestors back to the first American colonist and I have met with fantastic success.

Thank you, Elise P. Kidd

  1. 1. The year of 1988 is completed for the Eller Family Association with this issue of the Eller Chronicles. 1989 dues ($15.00) should be sent to Charlotte Marshall, 605 S.E. Park Ave., Corvallis, OR 97333. The next issue of the Eller Chronicles is due February, 1989. Please send information to be published to The Eller Chronicle, Rt. 2 Box 145-D. Whittier, N.C. by Jan. 15, 1989.
  2. 2. Interest in the 1989 First Eller Family International Conference scheduled for July 20-23 in Sallisbury. N.C. is growing and plans are well advanced and will soon be in the mail. Please notify Charlotte Marshall (address above) as soon as possible if you plan to attend and the number in your party.
  3. 3. With the assistance of our German members ( Prof. Dr. K. Napp-Zinn and Georg Eller ) ads about the Eller Family Association, The Eller Chronicles, and the Eller Family Conference will soon appear in a large number of German genealogical publications and will reach virtually all organizations and individuals in Germany who are interested in genealogy. We hope this project will expand communications with organizations and individuals in Germany and perhaps will bring new members and visitors to the 1989 Conference in Salisbury.
  4. 4. We look confidently toward 1989 as a year for further expansion and growth in membership and interest in the Eller Family Association. Looking back over our first full year of existence, we are gratified that with the help of so many members we have reached a level of development and stability far beyond that which we anticipated in the beginning. Our thanks to each of the members and the best wishes for a happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.
