Hi Peg- You might have something, here.I believe that census takers were sometimes mistaken with names, so it would make sense that Elenorah might sound and be written like "Ella N."Additionally, it fits that there is a James, and an Alice and later a Thomas.Her obituary from the Grove City paper states surviving siblings are: Alice, Anna, Pearl, Lona James and Thomas Ray. The girls had all married by that time. Sylvester (the father) was a name that was reused in Elenorah's son, James Sylvester (Uncle Vess) who died in WWI of typhoid, in 1919.The other children listed, I don't know, but but mortality rates sure were unpredictable.
The 1910 Census shows them residing in Franklin County, which makes sense as well, because it was probably Grove City, Ohio.Elenorah married a Wilkins and resided in Pickaway County, and later Franklin Co., Grove City, Ohio, where all of her descendants live today.
Thanks so much for your help!I have been running into walls for a very long time!
