  • Notes 
    • It is generally believed that Susannah “Sukey” Eller was not married. All her children carried her maiden name, Eller.
      Family lore was that her son, Joseph, was fathered by a man with the last name Starnes. DNA testing of one of Joseph's descendants confirms a Starnes link.
      Family lore also says Jacob and William, Susannah's other sons, were fathered by a man with the last name Fore.
      We do not know about the other three children.
