Mary Maria Ellison Dawson

10 Nov

Thanks to Heather Bathe and family, we have photographs of Mary Maria Ellison and her first husband James Dawson of Cleveland, Ohio.

Mary Maria often went by the name “Marion.” She was named Mary Maria after her grandmother Mary Maria Ambler Ellison. The Ambler’s were an important family in Baildon, Yorkshire.

She was born in Baildon, Yorkshire, England on September 10, 1839 to Walker Ellison and his wife Margaret (Cooper). Walker and Margaret had only one other child — Benjamin Walker Ellison. In 1848, Margaret and her second husband, William Hudson immigrated to America. At the time, they had two more children: Annie and Emma.

Marion had four children with James Dawson: Anna Maria (Heather’s line), William Walker Ellison, Lillie, and Florence Susan. After James died in 1884, Marion married Enoch Kimball Robinson in 1893 and moved to Boyne Falls, Michigan, where her brother lived. Enoch was the first husband of Marion’s younger sister Annie, who died in 1892 in Boyne Valley Township. Enoch died in 1902 and Marion married again – to Arthur E. Martin. Marion died on the 25th of November 1909 in Boyne City, Michigan.

Thank you again to Heather Bathe for sharing these wonderful photographs.

    Thank-you Heather! Strangely enough, Mary Maria Ellison Dawson was my 4th cousin 3x removed. She was born just a short distance from where my father was born in Yorkshire.

    I was born just 58 miles from Cleveland, OH where your ancestor Anna Maria Dawson was born!
