I have quite a bit of info on this Ullom family but would always like more details.Elijah David Ullom is the son of Elijah and Mary (Henderson) Ullom.William Marcellus Ullom is another son of Elijah (born 1830) and Mary.Wm. Marcellus is therefore the brother of Elijah David.The elder Elijah died enroute to Texas from Missouri.He died in Arkansas.Some of Wm. Marcellus' siblings died enroute too.(supposedly of Malaria)Mary and the remaining children made it to Texas but evidently Mary didn't live that long after because the children (including Wm. Mar.) were left orphans and homeless.An Irishman name Patrick McGee took the kids in and raised them.Your Wm. Mar. married Patrick's daughter.This is the story I was told.Have you heard any of this story?Must have been so sad to be orphans on the street.Thank goodness "Paddy" McGee had a soft heart and took them in.My ancestor, Mary Ester, was a sister of your Wm. Mar. and was older and married so therefore did not go to Texas with the rest of the family.She remained in Missouri.Anything else you know I would be interested in.
