My husband's maternal ancestors were from Payson and surrounding communities in Utah County.
He is a descendant through of the first German ELLSWORTH and his wife, Experience "Speedy" Brown. Their son, German ELLSWORTH (b. 1849 in Salt Lake City; died 1922 in Payson) had a large family of children -- including Speedy Armina ELLSWORTH, the wife of Delos Franklin TANNER.
Speedy and Delos are Bob's great-grandparents. His mother was Edith Armina Johnson White SCOTT (now deceased).
At the moment, we are looking for some information about the ELLSWORTH ancestors and are trying to make contact with some of the "oldest" relatives.
(1) Does anyone know if there is an official family organization for these ELLSWORTH families?
(2) Is there still a historical society operating in Payson?
