I was wondering if there is any one that may have information or know about this family that lived near Marion, Louisiana (closer to Conway, La.). Lucinda was married to York Morgan.

Thanks,

Charles L. Bilberry

My husband father was Rufus Ellis. Rufus Ellis' parents were Etta (Nelson) and James Cornelius Ellis. Etta (Nelson) Ellis' parents were Hannah (Bilberry) and Branch Nelson. James Cornelius Ellis' parents were Henry and Judy Ellis. Do you know where the descendants of Hannah (Bilberry), Branch Nelson and Henry and Judy Ellis are? Also, do you know how the surnames (Benson, Bilberry, Cassey, Calhoun, Dawkins, Ellis, Hill, Lawrence, McDowell, Nelson, Thrower, Morgan and Traylor are connected to each other. Also, do you know what City Lucinda was born in Mississippi and her maiden name. Do you know if any Dukes, Dorsey, Walker, Miller, Jackson, Williams, Taylor connected to this family from Mississippi, Arkansas, Lousiana or Tennessee? Thanks!

I do know of one lady that lives in Monroe, LA that is a descendant of Branch and Hannah Nelson. Her name is Irma Gospel. She is 86 years old and lives in Monroe, LA. She is Hannah and Branch's grand daughter. Irma's mother was Levonia Nelson-Wyatt.Levonia was Hannah and Branch's daughter.
There are some descendants that live in Houston, Texas but I never have been able to get a response from them.

The Morgans are connected with the Bilberry's through Georgia Bilberry-Ellis. Georgia's mother Lucinda was lived with York Morgan she was born around 1835 or 1845. Slaves marriages were not recognized by the White slavemaster. Lucinda had at least two children by the White slave master by the name of Elsey B. Bilberry. Hannah and Georgia were sired by him with Lucinda. Elsey also had a son that was sired by another slave woman. The child's name was Jordan Ellis Billberry. Jordan was born in Union Parish of Louisiana but moved to Chidestar, Arkansas in Ouachita County around 1900. I do not know the city in Mississippi that Lucinda was born.

Irma Gospel's mom was Levonia (Nelson) Wyatt. Levonia (Nelson) Wyatt and Etta (Nelson) Ellis were sisters. Which made Etta (Nelson) Ellis's son (Rufus Ellis)and Levonia (Nelson) Wyatt's daugher (Irma Gospel) first cousins. So, Rufus Ellis and Agustas (Roe) Ellis' (12 children) are Irma Gospel's second cousins. Irma Gospel's second cousins range from the ages of (63 - 47). They resides in Arkansas, Tennessee, Illinois, Missouri and Texas. I connected with a set of Calhoun that resides in CA that are from the branch of Jordan Branch Nelson. Jordan Branch Nelson migrated to Texas and is buried there. Is Elsey B. Bilberry's descendants and Hannah and Georgia Bilberry's decendants connected to each other? Also, Irma Gospel's has a third cousin Marchel Hill in Wisconsin. This is Mattie Nelson' Great Great Granddaughter. Also, Irma Gospel's has a cousin name Barbara Lawrence in Missouri, she is connected to Hannah (Bilberry) and Branch Nelson. Do you know the names of Lucinda's parents and the names of her siblings?

Did any of the Bilberry, Ellis or Nelson come from the Farmerville Plantation in Union Parish, Louisiana owned by George Dawkins and his family?

Not sure of that either. Most of the Dawkins from the early years were members of the Springhill Baptist Church near Oakland, Louisiana. It is approx. 12 miles north of Farmerville, LA. near the Louisiana and Arkansas border. There is an African American and White cemetery next to the church. The church was an intergrated congregation when it was originally founded circa 1865.

Several Dawkins are buried there. There is only one Bilberry (George Bilberry), one Nelson (Jeremiah Nelson) and there are'nt any Ellis buried in this cemetery.

The majority of the Ellis are buried at the Meridian Baptist church cemetery. They also have an African American and White Cemetery at this church. It also was originally an integrated congregation when it was founded circa 1854.
Most of the Bilberrys and Bensons are buried at the Sweet Lilly Primitive Baptist Church. All of these churches are within 8-10 miles of each other.

My great great great grandmother's name is Mary Lucinda Clark (Billberry). She was born a slave around 1856 and she was mulatto and from Farmerville, Union, Louisiana. I can't find anymore information on her but she must have come from that plantation then...

Also I have a lot of ancestors who came from Chidester, Ouachita, Arkansas and the rest of Ouachita county which I see you talked about in one of your posts.
