Hello, Jerry Ellis,
Levi P. "Mort" Bozarth, s/o Levi Bozarth and George Ann Watts, was b. 10 Jul 1894 in Silver Point, Putnam Co, TN. He died in May 1948 in Wynne, Cross Co, AR and was buried in the Woodman Hall Cemetery there. He married Josie Bell Phillips, d/o Joe Calvin Phillips and Susanna Ramsey, on 20 Jan 1916 somewhere in AL. Josie was b. 20 Dec 1902 and was living in Sep 1988. Their children were: an unnamed baby b. 28 Nov 1916, O'Dell, b. 14 Feb 1918 / d. 1933 Elora, Lincoln Co, TN; Eugene, b. 31 May 1920; Annie Beatrice, b. 23 Nov 1922; Vester Inez, b. 26 Dec 1924; Edward Calvin, b. 31 Jul 1927; Frances Ann, b. 8 Feb 1930; Mildred Joyce, b. 31 May 1933; Lois, b. 7 May 1936; Dorothy Jean, b. 17 May 1940, Truman, Poinsett, AR; Christene, b. 30 Jan 1943, Wynn, Cross Co, AR; and Levi Lafayette, b. 28 Nov 1945; Wynee, Cross Co, AR.All the other children were born in Alabama. Can you tell where they were married and where the older children were born?
You must be Jerry H. Ellis, s/o Wesley Ellis and Margaret ______, who married Christene Bozarth. I have marriage records for most of the other children, but I don't have yours or the one for Lois and Everett Ellis. I would be most interested in adding to and/or correcting any of the information I'm sending. I only have the four children of Eugene and Eula Aleen Speer. Aleen was the lady who sent me this information back in 1988.
I do know that Levi Lafayette Bozarth and George Ann Watts were the parents of Willie E., b. Jan 1890, m/1. Frank Turner, m/2. _______ Knight; J. A. "Jimsey", b. Nov 1891; Levi P., b. Apr 1894; John "Ike", b. Nov 1895; and George , b. Sep 1896. Ike and Fanny Bradford had James, Willam and twins Monroe and Lonzo. George and Maggie ? had Thurman, Margaret and Eva Dora. Hopefully you can help me with additions and corrections here, too.If you need further help in going the other direction, please let me know.
Look forward to hearing from you with a lot of new data on descendants.
