Your Sarah is a about two generations older than mine, but that may not matter..they may still be related. I am REALLY interested in your Surname ELLIXSON. I have Ellisor/Ellison/Elizer/Eleazer/ you name the spelling and I've got them, but I have never seen it spelled that way. I do think both need further investigation. I am elated that someone responded 6 years after the posting! Please contact me directly at my email address JSR91952@aol.com
and let's see if any connections can be made.
