Christopher ELLIS and Mary Brashears

Fifth Generation

26. Margaret ELLIS (Nathan (Capt.) , James (Col.) , Christopher , Christopher ) was born on 13 Dec 1771 in Prob. Fayette or Washington, PA. She died on 3 Nov 1856.

Rebecca FOWLER was the aunt of Benjamin Nicholas FOWLER who m. Nancy A. Carson (b. ca 1814).
Rebecca FOWLER married Henry Carson (b. 1802/09) who may have been Nancy's brother.
Henry CARSON and Joseph CARSON were possibly 1st cousins.

It has not been proven that Nathan's daughter Margaret is the one who married David Carson. Margaret married unknown Scicily according to one researcher. It is fairly certain that Margaret Ellis who married David Carson was part of this Ellis family because the other Ellis family in that region of Ohio at the time were from Mass and Margaret's birthplace was PA, according to 1880 census records for her daughter Meriba. Also, the Ellis family from Mass did not have a female named Margaret as far as it is known. Nathan Ellis was in the region at the time and had a daughter named Margaret born in the same generation as David Carson. David was also born in PA.

1/28/2006 - I just received an email from another Carson researcher (George) who is a descendant of the David Carson who married Mary Burke 1794 in Washington, TN. He sent the following information:
I copied selected pages of "A Schedule of the Whole Number of Persons within the County of Washington in the Territory of the United States of America South of the River Ohio on the last Saturday in July, 1791" , the census of Washington County ordered by Governor William Blount. In Captain Depew's Company, we find David Carson (50 acres), David Carson Jr (0 acres), David Carson Sr. (0 acres), and Little David Carson (250 acres - maybe little, but not insignificant). Also, Robert Carson, Sr. and Robert Carson, Jr. Other censuses from that period include Williams, Johns, Moses, and Andrews. I have not been able to identify which of the Davids is my ancestor. I do know that the David who married Marey Burke in 1794 is my ancestor. His son Milton is my line. Also, I have not been able to figure out the connections between David and the other Carsons. David and Marey (or Mary) moved to Blount County sometime prior to 1800 (there is a David Carson in Blount County in the 1800 census). There was a sheriff of Blount County about then named John Burke. I have speculated that he might be Mary's father, but I have no evidence to show that he is. David and Mary moved to Cleveland, TN (the name of the county escapes me just now - maybe Bradley) at some point. They still have descendants living there, although their names are not Carson. In addition to the son Milton, they had a son Joseph and a son Robert, and a daughter Nancy.
So now we know there were TWO Robert Carsons and FOUR David Carsons in Washington, TN in 1791. We can rule out the one who married Mary Burke being the same one who married Margaret Ellis. However, depending on the birth years of these Davids, one of them may be "our" David. I am waiting to hear back from George because I asked him to give me his David's birth year, etc.

Sandy,
Here's what I have on the Carson and Beedle/Beadle family.
1. Mary Carson, daughter of David Carson and Margaret Ellis, married Aaron T. Beedle. (Also see Susanna Carson below)
2. Elizabeth Carson, daughter of David Carson and Margaret Ellis, married another man named Beedle.
My source for 1. and 2. is a Family Group Record (FGR) made by Leonard L. Robinson of Casper, WY, dated 1985. The FGR is for children of David Carson and Margaret Ellis. There are a couple of pretty wild claims on this FGR; namely that David Carson lived to be 110, and that he served in the Revolutionary War (even though he was born in 1775!) The claim that the family is related to Kit Carson may be true, although that is legendary in most Carson families.
At one time, I bought a stack of FGRs from the Carson FGR Exchange, and thus I have two of Leonard Robinson's FGRs. His other FGR is for Henry Carson and Rebecca Fowler, a son of David Carson and Margaret Ellis.
Note that Leonard Robinson spelled the name " BEADLE .
3. Susanna Carson m. Aaron Beedle. My source says Film 974057: Miami Valley Will Abstracts.
4. Susannah Carson b. 1720 Augusta Co. VA, m. Henry Carson b. 1720 Augusta Co. VA, Henry died ca. 1751.
Source is Ancestry World Tree entry by Melanie Stone, Entry # 784. She lists some sources.
5. Isabella Carson m. 22 OCT 1836 Fountain Co. Indiana to John R. Beedle
Source is Ancestry World Tree entry by Amanda Sanford, Entry # 86381.
(Note: Could Isabella be the same as Elizabeth Carson?)
PS If you are interested in looking at Leonard Robinson's FGRs, send me your name/address and I will snail mail you a photocopy. Please let me know before the 29th of January as I am leaving for vacation then and will not be back until March.

Sandy,
Sorry, Leonard Robinson's family tree file does not say where David Carson died.
In his notes, he wrote:
David Carson -Thought to have been born in Ireland about 1775. He came to the United States as a boy and lived to be 110 years of age.
He was a spy in the Revolutionary War under mad General Anthony Wayne (1745-1796)
He was a first cousin of Lindsey Carson (Kit Carson's father.) Thus, both would have been grandchildren of Alexander Harvey Carson, a Presbyterian minister via west coast of Scotland to Ulster, Ireland to England and to American before 1835, when he settled in Pennsylvania.
Notes on children: The order and dates of the children are unknown. Understand several Beadles (?) are listed as buried at Bethel Cemetery near Cosby (?). Noticed two Beatles (?) among early residents of Andrew County, Missouri.
Sandy, there is a Cosby, Missouri in Andrew Co. MO. Could David have gone there to be with his son, Henry Carson, who married Rebecca Fowler?
Good luck in your research.

<http://www.mccordfamilyassn.com/southwes.htm> IS THIS ABOUT DAVID WHO M. DYSART? Daughters of this James McCord in Tennessee's first county, Washington County, married sons of David Carson, one of the Scotch-Irish frontier fighters at The Battle of Kings Mountain, South Carolina in the American Revolution, and he was a cousin of the famous Kit Carson of western fame. James McCord's wife is believed to have been a Carson. (My note: Washington, TN was near the border with NC and KY and the Cumberland Gap where many of the pioneers migrated from PA on their way to KY and OH) This David may be the same one who married Margaret Ellis. He may have married Mary Burke Apr 21, 1794 in Washington, TN - was Margaret Ellis his 2nd wife? This David had a son James with Mary Burke. He was b. 1797 in TN and he m. Martha McCord. They had a son Ambrose McCord Carson who m. Nancy Inlow Tudor 1847 in Fayette, OH. However, this James would not be the same one who was in Fountain, IN because he was in Fayette, OH in 1840 and 1850. But the fact that this David was referred to as the cousin of Kit Carson and served in the Rev War makes me think it is referring to the same David as the that came in that FGR file. Also, a William Carson in Ireland married Anna McCord and their poss. descendants were in Washington, PA. Wm's poss. son Thomas m. Mary Smith and they were members of the same church in Washington, PA as Nathan Ellis.


Nancy - That information you sent me about David Carson living to the age of 110 may not be that far off. I think I found him and Margaret in the 1850 census...if so, he was not born in Ireland but in PA. If he served in the Rev War he was pretty darn young to be anything other than an errand boy and he did not receive a pension that I can find. Haven't found them in the 1840 or 1860 census. Notice he is living with Benj. and Elizabeth Ducket. An Elizabeth Carson m. Benjamin Duckett Mar 22, 1835 in Fountain, Indiana. The Beedles were there and Joshua Fowler. James Carson, son of James Carson and Rebecca Hill, was in Fountain, IN. (RECALL, THEY HAD A SON ADAM) James m. Leticia Adams. They were from Adams, OH. Elizabeth may be their daughter. If so, I wonder why David was living with them. It is a clue as to which Carson branch David may have been from....those who were in Adams, OH probably. Notice David has a DAVIS living with him. AND GUESS WHERE BENJAMIN DUCKET WAS IN 1860? In Center, Madison, Iowa with Isabella Carson and John Beedle....My Nancy Carson and Ben Fowler were in Iowa too, but they were in a different county (Keokuk). And Meriba Carson and Jack Mabery were in Lucas, IA.
This makes a strong case that David Carson may have been connected to the family of James Carson and Rebecca Hill. I know this is a real stretch, but Alexander Harvey Carson had a son Robert James Carson who m. Elizabeth Ann Reed (according to other researchers). The Carsons in Adams, OH may have been his descendants. There was a Robert Carson in 1810 Hamilton, OH. He was also there in 1820. Could be a grandson of Alexander Harvey Carson.

Email to Nancy:
This theory about David also corresponds with other information recently obtained about Nancy A. Carson's husband, Benjamin Fowler. Ben's father and grandfather were closely associated with Zachariah Price Dewitt and Zachariah was in Nelson, KY from the 1780's until he went to Butler, OH in about 1805 (same time as Benjamin). A "Ben Fouler" was also on the Nelson, KY 1791 Tax List. In the following narrative, notice the reference to "Mad Anthony Wayne". This is beginning to add up nicely....

Sandy
Zachariah Price DeWitt was born of a Dutch family in New Jersey April 24,1768. He and brothers Jacob and Peter made their way to Kentucky in the 1780's, settling in Nelson County, around Bardstown. Zachariah and Elizabeth Teets, who had been born in Pennsylvania April 14,1774, were married on March 11, 1790. It has been written that they "then settled down in a log cabin near their families and started raising corn, hogs, and eventually, nine children." Nevertheless, somehow during these years Zachariah gained a reputation as a hunter and Indian fighter. It is believed he may have been among Kentuckians who marched up Western Ohio in 1794 with Mad Anthony Wayne. The admission of Ohio as a state March 1, 1803, attracted Kentuckians to cheap, newly-available land. By 1805 Zachariah and Elizabeth DeWitt, with seven children, had found their way through almost-uncharted country to the spot where Zachariah built this house on the Four Mile.

I am searching for information on my Benjamin Fowler, born Ireland or
England, married Mary Nailor, and had a daughter Rebecca born 1807 in KY.
He may have been in Madison KY from the tax lists there in the early
1800's, along with James and Jeremiah Fowler. All three later show up in
Butler OH, where Rebecca married Henry Carson in 1829. Henry moved to
Preble OH in 1830, and I lose track of Benjamin. He bought land in
Marion IN, Owen IN and Muskingum OH. Henry lived in Marion IN in 1840
census, then moved to Andrew MO.

Henry Carson was son of David Carson and Margaret Ellis, also of Butler
OH and perhaps Hamilton OH, too.

If anyone could help me on these folks, I would really appreciate it.

  67 F viii Elvira (twin) CARSON was born on 10 Mar 1816. She died in Died at about age 16. She was buried in Beedle Cemetery, Richland, Fountain, Indiana.

According to cemetery records, Elvira Carson is buried in the Beedle Cemetery in Richland Township. No date for her death is given, but it does say that she was the daughter of David and Margaret Carson. I don't see David's name as being buried there, but Margaret is. Margaret died Nov.3, 1856 at the age of 32y 9m 7d. I will see if I find anymore information on David.

Sandy,
I grew up hearing about Elmira’s twin Elvira, who was killed in an accident of some kind when she was 16. I also have a handwritten note from my grandfather, Doug Sills, that his grandmother Elmira Carson had a twin named Elvira, etc. You probably noticed in our online exchange about the Carsons that Sharon Roberts found the Beedle cemetery record (Richland Townshhip) for Elvira. It doesn’t give the date, but gives David and Margaret as her parents.
I believe (all this part is unconfirmed at this point, that the James who shows up in the 1830 and 1840 census for Fountain county, was a son of David and Margarets, and that it was his wife who was the Margaret buried there in the Beedle cemetery with Elvira. There is also a Nancy listed, and I’m not sure who she is.
I have had information from another researcher on this particular part, and I’ll send you a copy as soon as I find it. He mentions the connection with Kit Carson, which I had also heard about while growing up. My grandfather’s note said Elmira was a first cousin of Kit’s. I haven’t found that connection, and it seems to me that David’s birthdate throws him back too early to be Lindsey Carson’s brother. Perhaps a cousin – I guess we’re getting pretty close to finding out. I visited Kit’s home in Taos, NM a year ago and collected books that gave any mention of genealogy. Pretty closed case unless there is that connection to Robert who went to Ohio.
Anyway, I’m attaching the descendent report as it stands now – it’s been awhile since I’ve entered data. I spend more time researching and it tends to pile up for a while before it gets enetered. I’ll try to remember to send you any updates when I have them.

Mary married James ? CAMPBELL.

Alexander Campbell was born in Frederick County, Virginia, in 1779. He moved with his parents to Tennessee and eventually Kentucky, where he received his formal education at the Pisgah Academy. Following graduation from the Pisgah Academy, Campbell enrolled in Transylvania University to study medicine. In 1803, Campbell embarked on a political career, first serving in the Kentucky House of Representatives. In 1804, he moved to Adams County, Ohio, and then to Brown County. He continued to practice medicine but quickly returned to politics, first serving in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1807 to 1809. He was the Speaker of the Ohio House his last two years in office. In 1809, Campbell became one of Ohio's two United States Senators. He was appointed to replace Edward Tiffin, who resigned that year. Campbell held the seat until 1813. His most noteworthy act as Senator was his failure to be in attendance when the United States Senate approved a declaration of war against England. The declaration of war officially began the War of 1812. Ohio's other Senator, Thomas Worthington, voted against the war. Upon completion of his Senate term, Campbell returned to Ohio and remained actively involved in state politics, first in the House of Representatives (1819 and 1832-1833) and also in the Ohio Senate (1822-1824). He unsuccessfully ran for governor of Ohio in 1826. He was an abolitionist and favored the political philosophy of first the Democratic-Republican Party and then of the Democratic Party. The last elected office that Campbell held was as mayor of Ripley, Ohio, from 1838 to 1840. Campbell died in Ripley on November 5, 1857.

In 1807 Thomas Campbell, born in North Ireland of Scottish descent, arrived in Pennsylvania, settling in Washington County. Long a Presbyterian minister, he exerted considerable energy in the land of his nativity in a struggle to unify dissident Presbyterian groups. His efforts at similar rapprochement in Pennsylvania resulted in litigation to oust him from the his presbytery. Seeing the handwriting on the wall, he resigned and with others of like-mind, formed the Christian Association of Washington, Pennsylvania. In 1809, his gifted son Alexander arrived with the rest of Thomas' family from a stint at the University of Glasgow. Out of the Campbell's efforts, churches were formed in the region around Pittsburgh. After 1816, the Campbell's joined with Baptist ministers of the Redstone and later the Mahoning Associations, winning several Ohio and Kentucky Baptist churches to their outlooks.8 The Campbells envisioned a mass exodus of believers from sectarian Protestantism so as to become one body, one New Testament church. Early in the 1830's the churches from the Stone and Campbell groups commenced merging in Kentucky. The amalgamation expanded to churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri. Several churches from the New England Jones-Smith, and Virginia O'Kelly movement also became a part of the Stone-Campbell merger. After the Civil War the Christian Connexion churches which did not merge established headquarters in Dayton, Ohio.9 In 1931 they merged with the Congregational Church, then with the Evangelical and Reformed Church, to form in 1957 the United Church of Christ.

  122 F v Almyra J. ELLIS was born about 1852 in Ohio.
+ 123 M vi John W. ELLIS
  124 M vii S. W. ELLIS.

S.W. Ellis, farmer, P.O. Feesburg. This name we find to be of Scotch extraction. S.W. is the son of Squire Abraham F. Ellis, and a grandson of Samuel Ellis. Of the latter and his four brothers, mention is made in the body of this volume mostly in Pleasant Township. A.F. Ellis was born in Virginia, in 1791, but from five years of age, grew to maturity in what is now Brown County, Ohio. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Amos and Mary Ellis, December 24, 1813. They first settled near the present Sink Creek Schoolhouse, where they lived until about 1822, when he purchased 100 acres of land in Lewis Township, R.K. Mead's Survey, No. 1661. In this vicinity, he lived for many years, and died May 27, 1862. He was a patriot in the war of 1812, and during life became a man of opulence; owning broad acres, and serving a number of years as Justice of Peace. He was a man of medium height, heavy set, square shouldered and possessed of a strong constitution, which enabled him to withstand many pioneer difficulties. He began to clear his farm in Lewis Township, with but little assistance, as his children were either girls or small boys. Early in his settlement in Lewis Township, he carried on coopering and furnished the pioneers with pork, flour and whisky barrels. Though he never learned the trade under instruction, he made a good barrel. It is said of him that when a youth of seventeen, he encountered and killed the last bear seen in Pleasant Township. Mrs. Ellis was about four years her husband's junior, and died August 3, 1866. They were both members of the Church of the Disciples, in which faith they died. Their children were twelve in number, viz.: Perry Q., Mary, Indiana, Minerva, John W., Eliza A., Samuel W., William P., Matilda, Abraham M., Elizabeth J. and Warren W. Of the twelve, seven are now living. The subject of this sketch is the seventh child; he was born January 26, 1826, in Lewis Township. He was raised to farm life, and obtained a common school education. He remained at home with his father until August 7, 1851, when he married Helen M. Norris, of a pioneer family of Lewis Township. Her birth, dates July 1, 1834. To this union have been given two daughters, viz.: Jennie N. Croswell and Mary Bell, wife of Charles G. Thompson. Mr. Ellis has always been a resident of Lewis Township, and now owns a farm of 129 3/4 acres, which is well improved and under good cultivation. He is one of the well to do citizens, and is interested in the cause of education, having prepared both of his daughters for teaching, in which profession both have served.

  125 M viii W. P. ELLIS was born in 1830 in Brown Co, Ohio.

W.P. Ellis, farmer, P.O. Higginsport, son of Abraham F. Ellis, whose history appears in this volume, is the ninth child, and was born in 1830, in Lewis Township, where he was raised to farm life, and acquired a common school education. He remained at home until 1857, when he married, Jane Slack, who was born in Brown County, Ohio, June 30, 1836. The result of this union is six boys, all now living. Mr. Ellis can say what few men of his age can, and that is, that during his entire life, he has lived on the farm of his birth, and now owns a part of it. He and his sons devote considerable time to the raising of tobacco. Politically, he has always been and is yet a Democrat. He and wife adhere to the Christian Church.

In 1850, he and Emily Jones, a native of Brown County, were made one by the holy bonds of matrimony, and their home has been cheered with three children—Mollie, Hattie and Albert.
