I'm looking for any information related to my gggrandfather, Elijah Foley Sullins. He was born 16 Sept 1823 and married Margarett McRoberts on 25 April 1844 in Cole County, MO. Their only child was my ggrandfather, John Edward Sullins, b.1846 and d. 1921. Elijah Foley died at age 23 or 24, but I have no information about what happened to Margarett after his death. The family lore about John Edward was that he was orphaned at an early age and raised by his "Aunt Mary." There is a Mary Todd (age 56, born in TN)listed on the 1850 Cass County, MO census with a 5-year-old John C. Sullins living with her. I suspect this is actually John E., but do not know how to verify it. I would love to hear from anyone who has any information or leads about this branch of the Sullins family, especially information about Margarett McRoberts Sullins or Mary Todd. I have a fair amount of information about the family from John Edward Sullins down to my generation, and would be happy to share that as well.
Thanks! Ellen Sullins Sedona, AZ firstname.lastname@example.org
