There are more Ellery's(Alarie) than you think. I am from Harper Woods, MI.I am 1 of 7 children from William Ellery of Columbus, MI.I started searching Ellery and traced back to Alarie.Here is how I am connected to the big puzzle:
Augustin and Esther Alarie Children: Julie, Thomas, Mary Ann, Joseph, & Philip.
Augustin's Son Capt. Thomas Ellery(my g-g-grandpa)was born May 22, 1836 died October 27, 1909. Do you have any info on where is buried? There is a lighthouse in Goderich, Ontario, Canada with his name on it.Is he buried there?
He married Amelia Hallinan (year??) Children: Thomas, Amelia, Jennie, Estella, Herbert, Arthur, & Grace.
Capt. Thomas's son Arthur (my g-grandpa)was born 1873 died 1950. I am not sure who he married?My dad may know?He had two boys Arthur and Orville.
Athur's son Arthur (my grandpa)was born Aug. 1902 and died 1988. He married Ruth Deland. They lived in St. Clair, MI.He was a tool and die maker for Diamond Crystal Salt Co. of St. Clair, MI.He had 10 children:
