Surnames: Ellison
I'm looking for information on Birch Ellison. Our records indicate he was born in Baltimore, MD in 1780. He married an Irish girl named Margret (Peggy) Flynn. He served in the War of 1812 in Captain Gilbert H. White's army as part of the North Carolina Militia. The 1820 census lists him in Burke County, North Carolina. The 1830 and 1840 census list Birch in Rhea County, Tennessee. Our records then indicate that the 1850 census lists him in Walker County, GA. His children are Hugh, Thomas, William, David, Rufus, John, Caroline, Rebecca and Jane. Birch owned land in Walker County, GA. And our ancestor (his son), John Jabren Ellison (born around 1823) moved from Walker County, GA to Yell County, Arkansas around 1860. I'm looking for any information on who his parents were and his time in Baltimore.

OUr Hugh H. Ellison married Nancy Becton in 1820 in Rutherford co., Tn. There is a Hugh H. Ellison listed in 1820 census in Mufreesboro, Tn also. Just wonder if there could be a connection to Birch or his children.

Hello Mr. Chapman,

Our Hugh Ellison was Hugh W. Ellison and was born to Burch and Margaret in Nov. 1840 in Tennessee. He married an Elizabeth Synder on 21 Oct. 1863 in Yell County, Arkansas. At this point we're not sure whether there is a connection to your Hugh H. Ellison or Burch (Birch) Ellison.

I was excited when I saw the name Thomas Cooper because, in Hugh H. Allison's will in Gibson county,Tn in 1842, a Thomas Cooper was the administrator. Thomas and Hugh lived very near each other in the 1836 tax list and on the 1840 census in that county. Also, a Henry, and William Allison were on the same tax rolls.
Any connection to Cooper/ Allison/Ellison in your line? Hope to hear back from you. My email is changed to chapmanjs@cox.net.

Hello,

We do appear to have common ancestors! My information matches yours. Birch was born in 1780 in Baltimore, MD and died 16 Aug 1856 in Hamilton Co., Tennessee. Served in the war of 1812 and married Margaret Flynn about 1817. Children are Caroline, Thomas, Robert, William, David, John, Rufus and Hugh. Info I have on Rufus: he was born in 1831 in TN and died sometime after 1880 in Arkansas. He lived in GA in between. Married to Margaret Murdock. Does that seem right?
