Parthenia was born abt 1836 i know not where. What i do know is that she was married to benjamin h. ellis in 1854 in scott co. She would have been 18 years old at that time so she is likely to have lived with her family in scotts co. mo. I have had no luck finding out who were her parents. I know there were several Powells living in scotts co.mo. someone must have information on this family????? I have her marriage cert from scotts co mo., i also know that her first child nancy jane ellis was born in 1856 in union co james e. ellis was born in 1859. benjamin died in 1864 and parthenia re-married in 1868 to a samuel williams, a farmer, in union co. ky. I feel sure that Parthenia was born in scotts co mo. OR union co. ky. if anyone has info on this family please contact me.
