Re: Emil Ellison emigrated to Cambridge, MA, late 19th century
Michael VanBaaren sent me an email with the following from the Christening record of Emil Ellertsen:

Emil Conrad Jacob Ellertsen
born: 27 Dec 1863
Christened: 24 Jan 1864 at Sem, Vestfold
Father: Ellert Lars Larsen
Mother: Kristine Elise Christensdatter (unwed)
Kristine was a sister of Inger Pauline who, therefore, was Emil's aunt, not his mother. Kristine & Ellert appear to have left Emil to live with his grandparents.
Now I'm going to try to get Emil to Cambridge in time to meet and marry Anna Beatty and eventually become my great-grandfather.
Thanks again for all your help!
