Greetings fellow Euliss researchers! I have found a great resource of information that I hope will help you as much as it has helped me. It is the "Kleasner Family History Collection", an LDS microfilm collection of Anna Belle Kleasner's research on this and many other families. I have transcribed some of the Euliss info and am posting it in this message. If you see anything that doesn't make sense or just doesn't fit, it's probably my input errors...just let me know.
