The Ellison, Ash, Poston, Abner Families of West Virginia Updated October 3, 2004
About Our Family Research
I have been tracing these families for several years. Always seem to end with the Ellison family...Great Grandfather, Milton Love Ellison's mother, Sarah Ellison (a single lady who is supposed to have run a boarding house in Sewell, West Virginia.
The Ash family came from Kentucky. I can trace to Great Grandfather, George Washington Ash, wife Belle Hicks Ash.
The Poston's came to West Virgina from Tennessee. Were coal miners. My cousin, Norma Jean Crone has their history. I assume that Great Grandmother, Allie Beatrice Abner was also from Tennessee.
