The Eller Family Association has received its shipment of the 2023 Edition of “John Jacob Eller and his Descendants.” We are in the process of getting this set of three books delivered to those who placed advance orders. Steve Eller, EFA President and the principal author of the new edition, made the first deliveries to Brenda Galloway Franklin and Dr. Ketron Moss, both Eller descendants.
This three-volume, 2023 update of the original book, contains the names of more than 30,000 descendants of John Jacob Eller (1715- 1782), one of the original Eller immigrants who arrived in the new world and settled first in Pennsylvania and then in Rowan County, North Carolina.
The Eller Family Association sponsored publication of the books and will continue to offer them for sale as long as the limited supply lasts. The original book, with about half the descendants listed in the new edition, was sold out.
Volume one of this new printing contains some early Eller history and starts with the descendant listings. Volume two and three are devoted nly to descendant listings. An Index in the back of volume three will help you find the page number for any listed descendant
The purpose of the Eller Family Association is to draw all Ellers, regardless of their particular family line, and allied families into a cooperative effort. The EFA has already demonstrated that this approach is the quickest and most efficient mechanism for sharing family history and genealogical information.
