I ordered this article to see if this family is connected to my Livesey family. Reuben Livesey and Alice Prince of Preston, Lancashire, England (married 1873). I will have to check further on this, unless a cousin can tell me!

Benjamin Walker Ellison was from this area, being born there in 1841. His father Walker and his grandfather Benjamin are also from this area. I do not know how Joseph Ellison is connected, but it is a probability that he is.
