  • Notes 


    • HENRY ELLER s/o PETER ELLER who settled in West Bethlehem Township ofWashington Co., PA soon after 1800, and resided on his father's farmafter Peter's death.

      I have not found a marriage record for Henry Eller; however, he couldhave been married and wife died soon after. Estate Settlement forHenry Eller, Washington Co., PA, File No. 15, Book Z, AdministrationAccounts 15 Feb. 1888. There was no mention of a wife, in brief,shares to following:
      Daniel H. Moore, Elizabeth Eller, Catherine Eller, D. Eller, CatherineA, Moore, and Sarah L. Shrontz. I assume Daniel H. Moore and CatherineA. Moore were his Nephiew and
      Niece; and children of Henry Eller's sister Mary who married Jacob
      Moore. Mary was already deceased - as of 24 Feb. 1871.
