  • Notes 


    • Absolam only lived to be age 27. Aunt Nevba Eller Ritz, said someonetold her mother there was a rumor that he might have been poisoned bydrinking water; but did not know any facts - there was no cause ofdeath listed at Court House at New Martinsville, Wetzel Co. I guessthis is just a "Grandmother's tale" and we will never know whether itwas deliberate by some unknown factor, or accidental - maybe neither.My dad, Berrell Eller never knew cause of death; or at least he nevermentioned it to me. Per Clarice V. Eller Stanley.

      Absolam and wife Catherine 'Cassie" Yoho Eller only had two children;a daughter named Rchel F. Eller who died 8 Aug. 1889 at age 22 ofTyphoid Fever, and Charles A. Eller who was my grandfather, He wasonly 3 Mos. old when his father died.
