I am the g-g-g-g-g-g-gr-granddaughter of Thomas EELLS, b. 1675-80 in Milton, MA. He was the grandson of John EELLS, the progenitor of the EELLS/ELLS Family in America, but I can't findproof of his parentage. Someone suggested Samuel EELLS. b. 1666, s/o Samuel EELLS,Sr.,(s/o John), and Ann Lenthall, but Samuel would have been too young to have fathered Thomas. I am hoping & praying that someone has Thomas' true ancestry. Thomas died 7 APR 1724 in Milton,MA., & was a tax-payer, and life-long resident, but the Town of Milton has no proof of his parentage. My sources: Marriage record to Abigail GLOVER, census records, Birth Cert. of Joshua EELLS/ELLS b. 9 NOV 1712, plus Thomas' Death Cert. Thankyou for all factual information.
