Several years ago I had posted a request for any info regarding Jess & Cora Stogner Ellis.Then I forgot about it for it awhile.Anyway, I'm back after a few years away from this board and I'm hoping someone can help me out with some of the stuff I've gathered.
I've been looking for info on my great grandmother, Cora Stogner Ellis.After talking with some relatives, I have discovered the following.
Cora (middle name Lee?) Stogner married Jess Ellis, son of Tom and Ida (Collins or Hollins) Ellis (I'd like to know more about him, too; but one famly branch at a time, I guess.).They had 5 girls...
Sylvia Lee b.11/4/1926 (my paternal grandmother) Genevieve (Aunt Gent) b. 6/21/1931 Margie b. 8/22/1934 Martha Ray (or Rae) b. 1/27/1941 Gloria Jean b. 10/17/abt 1946
My sister did an interview with Aunt Gent a few years ago and according to her, Cora's parents (Aunt Gent's grandparents) were Bob and Laura Stogner.Gent believes they were from Laurel or Columbia, MS because they met and married in Martin County, MS.Then they moved to olumbia, MS, Varnado, LA, and then Sun, LA.
My grandfather, Horace Shelby Bush (married to Sylvia Lee Ellis), has mentioned that Sylvia had an uncle Theodore Stogner and an uncle Curtis Stogner, also possibly a Frank Stogner, so I'm guessing they would be Cora's brothers.
Cora also had a sister by the name of Filoney.Filoney had raised 3 or 4 of another couple's children.Their last names were Bennett.I spoke with one of the ennett's and HE told me that Cora's parents names were John and Della Stogner.
I'm trying to figure out who my great, great grandparents are on the Stogner side.....Bob and Laura? or John and Della?
Also, would anyone know anything more about the Stogner book and annual reunion?
Thanks so much for helping me to solve the ancestral mystery!
