I'm trying to find out anything about my gr-grandfather, and if my he served in the Civil War.His name was Woodford E. KELLIS, and he was from Kentucky.He was born 1824, married Aug 17, 1845 in Sumner, Tennessee. Don't know when or where he died.
1880 Census of Richpond, Warren Co., KY:Woodford, wife Nancy, son Samuel, dau. Alice, R. Elizabeth (dau-in-law), dau. Adda, son Eugene, Celia Thomas (mo-in-law).
1900 Census of Warren Co, KY: Woodford and his wife Nancy, plus children: Louis Kellis, Eugene, Redie, and Otto (sp?) possible grandson?Son Samuel and a "Doc Kellis" are listed as renting farms, possibly from father Woodford.
First child born 1860, last probably 1870, so he survived the war, if he was in it.
