Hmmm. Perhaps I can help a bit. This Abraham DEVINS is likely Abraham DEVINS 111 1793 who married Pamela WYANT, and later in life widow Sabra KAAKE.He was the son of Levi DEVINS & Hannah CHAPMAN. (I am descended from Abraham's oldest sister Hannah (DEVINS) PRENTICE 1800-1846.) This Abraham (along with his father) did wander over to Kent Co where they died. According to the DEVINS book, Abraham's dau'r Rachel 1836-1897 married Samuel ELLIS. So I would suspect that these ELLIS descendants have not only Abraham DEVINS as an ancestor, but perhaps your Francis ELLIS on the ELLIS side. At least it fits more or less. I have fairly little on the ELLIS name, but there's been quite a bit on DEVINS.
