I have always hit a wall with Ellen and her history and today I found the following: Does anyone have this family in there history??

_______________________________________________

This is a major break through if this is correct, I can not find anything additional of the Gunnigan family in my search. Confusing, but the dates are there and the names match as well as the location so I have that warm fuzzy feeling inside. I just want to confirm before moving ahead. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
