*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.
