Re: Ellis Marcus Dagenhart
You are right about their elusiveness.
I have seen the William Marcus in Chatham or Warren County NC in 1790.Chatham is also where the Basket Family was very early.
Ellis D Marcus and Nancy are in Cherokee County in 1860
I think the part of Burke they were in Became Cherokee.
I wish there was some information on William the son of
Ellis De Marquis and Elizabeth Basket. His Wifes name would be a great help.
I also Found a Member of the Kerley familynear Ellis D Marcus in Burke County in 1820.This is interesting because.
William Basket Jones Married Patsy Kerley the daughter of Larkin Kerley. William Basket Jones was the son of John Morley Jones and Ruth Basket said to be a daughter of William and Ruth Basket of Chatham. Elizabeth Basket wife of Ellis De Marquis of Edgefield Sc was supposed to be a daughter of William and Elizabeth Basket of Chatham.
Ellis Demarquis allegedly lived in Granville Nc near Chatham and then moved to Edgefield Sc where he died in 1788
his will is on file there.
I have found his son Daniel and his second wife Mary in the 1790 census of Edgefield.
I hope we can find someone who knows more About where William was around 1780 when My Margaret ???? wife of Jacob Moser would have been born. I believe she is EllisD Marcus of Burke and Cherokees sister.
Are there and Margarets in your line???
