Erastus b. d. 1-25-1864 m. don't know whether married or children. Brother Henry and sister Emily inherited from Erastus.

*Emily b. d. married William Wald--- (abandoned by husband)
Children - yes but, no names
Lucetha *see below
(also spelled Lucetta & Lucetha - in one document her care is left to brother Jonathan. Another mentions an Alfred Hill assuming her care for the sum of $1200. Perhaps she was incompetent. Her burial was paid for by a John Snyder, who I assume to be husband of Mary Ann Snyder, who was a granddaughter of Eliab and Prudence Ellison, and daughter of Philinda.)
*Note: Emily Ellison m. William P. Walrath as his second wife. (Jerome A. Walrath)
The Ellison family, at least from the census, were from the village of Herkimer.
