A secondary source that includes Ellen's parentage: The "History of Morgan County, Ohio, with Portraits and Biographical sketches of some of its Pioneer and Prominent Men" by Charles Robertson M. D., revised and extended by the publishers. Chicago, L. H. Watkins & Co. 1886
p. 375 - exerpts from the entry "Thomas Risen came from Virginia to Morgan County...he married Sarah Kennedy...children were John...Ellen Wright... Betsey and Polly, unmarried; Joseph...Jonas; Martin; Elizabeth J (Gillespie)...and Lydia A (Shellhammer)" -There were errors in several entries, one here was "Elizabeth J." Gillespie. She was always listed as "Eliza J." and that was the name in her death record. Because Betsey was usually(always?) listed as Elizabeth in the census I don't think "Eliza" was a nickname.
Thomas and his younger brother Raleigh/Rawley left Fauquier Co., VA about 1801 and traveled to Hampshire Co. Their father, John left Fauquier sometime after August 14 in 1802 and was also in Hampshire Co. by 1803.(Fauquier & Hampshire Co. tax records)
Eleanor/Ellen was the second child of Thomas Risen and Sarah "Sally" Kennedy. She was probably born in Hampshire Co., VA (now WV) since Thomas and other members of his family were included in the Hampshire Co. (Lower District) tax records from 1802 through, and including, 1805.
Sarah's father, Dennis Kennedy, & family also made the trip from Fauquier. He was also included in both Fauquier and the Hampshire Co. tax records. Dennis Kennedy settled "next door" in Perry Co. Ohio and Dennis left a will. Sarah was included as "Sally" in the will.
Fauquier County, Virginia Marriage Bonds & Returns, 1759-1820 (FHL microfilm #31633) Vol. 1., p. 455 the return "Thomas Risen and Sarah Kenaday dated Decr 2 1800" Vol.2, p. 223 - includes the bond Thomas and Sarah's brother John Kennedy bound themselves for $150 on 02 Dec 1800 for the intended marriage of Thomas to Sarah. (Tom and John signed with their mark)Immediately following the bond was a statement by Dennis Kennedy requesting issuance of a marriage license for his daughter Sarah Kennedy to Thomas Risen. (Dennis signed with his mark)
Thomas and Rawley first settled in Deerfield Twp of Morgan Co. Both are included in the 1820 census. I think their father John was the 45 and older male in Rawley's 1820 household and the 70-79 male in his 1830 household.
The Fauquier marriage records included one for Thomas and Rawley's sister. John Risen gave his permission for Nellie Risen to marry William Holmes. Her marriage was 22 Dec 1801.A descendant of Nellie's said she usually went by Ellen. Nellie...Ellen; one wonders if her name might have been Eleanor. Nellie was the youngest of the three siblings, born 1783/1784 (census)
