Surnames: Strother, Willis, Whittington, Elliott, Dyer, Johnson
My gggrandmother,Ellen Elliot Whittington married a James Strother, on Feb. 7, 1867 in Alexanderia. I have a copy of the marriage license. There is a J.D. Strother,and Wm. Godwin witnesses., and D.W. Willis,Sr. (Jr.) minister. James and Ellen are both buried in the Oakdale Cemetery. James b. 1838-d. 1891. Ellen b. 1839-d.1919.
I also have a Wm. David Elliott III that married Ellen Johnson and Henry Machen Elliott married Ella Dyer. I'm trying to link the Strother family. Could there be a connection here? The 1900 census for Calcasieu Parish shows that Ellen had 15 children-with 9 living. I know that at least 3 were Whittington children and maybe 2 more. The only names I have for Strother children are ??Melburn b. 1881 and James (O)?? b. 1869-he was listed as a minister, married to Cora. Ellen was living with Oscar, her son in the 1910 census for Natchitoches Parish. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
