In November 1968 John Albert Ellard of Ellard's Book Shop,
Bessemer Al. copied what was earlier recorded by G. W. Oglesby:
Mrs. Ruth Ellard departed this life in May, 1858.Added to this was
the burning of his home and furnishings.The home was soon rebuilt.The
land mark 2 1/2 miles from Greenpond, AL still bears the Ellard name.
In 1861 David Ellard married again, to Mrs. Elizabeth (Oglesby)
Farley.To this union was born one son, David Henry Ellard, to bless the
home, just as the call came for his father to serve in the Civil War.
Both he and his son, James, gave their lives to the cause.
(No military records for either James or David Ellard have been
foundat this time.If anyone has copies from the National Archives, I
would appreciate knowing more about them.)
