  • Notes 
    • George Washington Eller (April 28, 1817-May 1, 1899) was born in KY and died in Collin Co., TX. He moved to Collin Co., TX from Boling Green, Wayne Co., KY in 1865 and settled in Collin Co., TX.
      Washington Eller, and his brothers and sisters all appeared to have been born and raised in Kentucky, where their father lived after leaving Virginia. Washington traveled to Texas with brothers Harrison and Leander and his son John William.
      Washington Eller took his family from Kentucky to Collin County, Texas (just North of Dallas) about 1865. Janet Rice, whose letters with Iris Britton of Fredericksburg, TX form a large part of what we know of the Washington Eller line, seemed to believe that Washington was a son of George Eller, Sr. Other research seems to suggest what we show here: that he was a grandson of George Sr. and a son of George, Jr. Washington and Malinda are buried at Cottage Hill Church Cemetery near Celina, TX [4]
