  • Notes 
    • The "Ohio Marriages" database records that Angline "Snuffer" married John Ellis on 23 Jan 1853 in Champaign Cnty, OH.
    • In commenting upon their daughter Jestena, Luther A. Brewer and Barthinius L. Wick, History of Linn County Iowa, vol. 2, pp. 375-376 (Chicago; Pioneer Publishing Co: 1911), wrote:
      "The marriage of Mr. [Walter S.] Bersley to Miss Jestena Ellis occurred on the 18th day of October, 1880. Mrs. Bersley is a daughter of John and Angeline Ellis, natives of Ohio, who came to Linn County in 1856 and always followed farming...."
    • The 1870 census does not list John; it records that Angeline Ellis, 35, was living with her children: "Doratha," 16; Ira [indexed as Iva], 13; "Thana," 11; and "Justena," 8. 1870 U.S. Census, Spring Grove Twsp, Linn Cnty, IA (stamped p. 369 B).
