Please DON'T give up on your search to find other "Ellerbe's." After more than 20 years, I finally got two email addresses for my Dad's sister Saundra Brengel, yet this was a message that she posted back in 2005. My Dad's name was William E Ellerbe, and his parents were Mose Ellerbe and Sarah Custus. If necessary feel free to look for other Ellerbe's on Facebook. I've found at least two possible relatives, and I hope to find some more. Take care and have a blessed day.
