We had a great Eller Family Association conference at the Hinton Center in Hayesville, NC, Thanks to Steve Eller organizing the events.
We will have lots of pictures and details in the upcoming issue of the Chronicles.
Highlights included a presentation on Ellers in Towns County, Georgia, from Jerry Taylor on Thursday, a visit to "Sukey" Eller's grave, our Saturday night banquet and the election of Steve as the new EFA president and Lauren Liggett as our new Secretary-Treasurer.
Looking for an Old Bible
EFA member Christine Eller Walker is trying to locate the person in possession of an old Bible printed in the German language at Halle, Germany, in 1770.
It is believed the Bible was willed to Jacob Eller by his father George Michael Eller.
About 1957, the Bible was believed to be in the possession of Mr. Wade E. Eller of Warrensville, NC.
A reward is offered. Call Christine at 336-921-3430.
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.

The EFA exists to assist all Eller and associated family lines worldwide to: discover and preserve our historical past, report current events and ongoing contributions, develop and expand current family ties, provide ongoing biennial meetings to summarize accomplishments and to socialize and provide inspired direction as we focus on the future.
