  • Notes 
    • Mariah Eller died about 1864 during the troubled times of the Civil War. Family tradition relates that she was staying with Caroline Hooper, her daughter, when Caroline's baby, Callie, was born. Mariah sent word to Caroline's husband, William Hooper, that he was needed at home. William "slipped in" home but the Home Guards hearing of his arrival, came after him to take him back to the War. When they came, Mariah blocked the front door while her son-in-law slipped out the back into the woods. Those men who honored themselves by the title of Guard pushed the valiant lady out of the doorway. She fell to the ground sustaining injuries from which she never recovered. [1]
