I am trying to locate the family of Ethel Ely Power(s). She was the daughter of Jefferson Carroll Powers (who was apparently the son of Pennington Power[s]) and Mary Ely and was born in Sugar Creek community, Clinton County, Illinois in 1884. Mary (Ely) Powers was born about 1846. Mary Ely's parents were Madison Ely and Rosalie L. (Manuel) (Lisa? or de Lisa?) Ely. The families appear to have all lived in either St. Clair, Clinton or Madison counties.
I am looking for descendants of the Ely family and/or Power families. Ethel Ely Powers married Benjamin Graham of Iowa and they had two children, Marie Ethel Graham and Arthur Lynn Graham. Marie married Willard Dreher and they had no children. Arthur never married.
Madison and Rosalie Ely had children Virginia (1843), Christopher (1844), Mary (1846), Ophelia (1849), George Washington (1852), Anna (1854), and Emmaline (1856).
Daughter Virginia married John David Edwards, a Welsh immigrant, in 1865. They had children Anna (1866), William (1868), Ellis (1870), Edward (1874), Robert (1877), Mary (Mamie) (1880), and Matt Ely Edwards (1882).
Ophelia Ely married Samuel Strohm in 1874. He died December 30, 1877. They had a stillborn daughter, but appear to have had no other children. Ophelia died in 1905 without remarrying, I think.
Mary Ely married Jefferson Carroll Powers in 1867. They had children Mary (1873), Madison Wiley (1875), Ethel Ely (1884) and Franklin A. (1886) - that I know of. Madison married Mary J. Stout and they appear to have had no children. Ethel married Benjamin Graham as stated above. I do not know what became of the other children.
Any help with these families would be greatly appreciated.
