Life has a way of interfering with family research. I think I will have to get a professional involved in this family. But your information has been invaluable - I plan to print all your posts so that I can refer to them in the future.
I see you have not been on ancestry for a year. Hopefully, everything is all right with you. You certainly have so much knowledge ab out this subject. I also noted that your name is spelled Eilis instead of Ellis....sorry about that.
