The information provided to you by Brent Tifft in his reply of September 8, 2000 seems to be confirmed by data in the 1880 census.

The son "Frank" listed here must be the same as "Francis" of Brent's message.
The son Robert K. of whom Brett has spoken was by 1880 married to Edith E. Wooster, had had two sons, and is listed elsewhere in the census.
Note that the major difference between this data and that which Brent provided is that the 1880 census says that Ella (as well as Frank) was born in Wisconsin.
