-------=========================
Yes I am also a descendant of Jeremiah and Mary Polly Gregory Pack. I
descend through Wlilliam M. Pack, Green Smith Pack, John Oliver Pack, and
my father Kensie D Pack. I descend from the older James Ellis
(@1770-1847) through Jefferson Ellis, James H Ellis, Virginia Ellis
Chandler, Gunter Chamdler, and my mother Alean Chandler.I also descend
from James Ellis through Nancy Ellis Lane, Jefferson Lane, Tennessee
Elizabeth Lane Treece Wilson, Veda Wlison Chandler,and my mother. My
maternal grandparents were 3rd cousins. So I have a special interest in
the Ellis line.

Jefferson Ellis was born in Illinois not SC. I'm sure you got this from Lacy's transcription of the 1850 Searcy co. census. This shows why it is important to check original sources. The available info strongly suggests that Jefferson's parents were James and Mary Hunt (dau. of John and Martha Jenkins Hunt) Ellis. James and Mary m.1817 in Edwards Co. Ill, where they show up in the 1820 census. In 1830 they are in adjacent Wayne co. Ill. After the "Panic (depression) of 1837" they moved to Searcy co., along with the Horn, Dean, and Arnold families. James Ellis is listed in the 1839 tax list there. He also shows up in the 1840 Census next door to Harmon Horn (former sherriff of Wayne co. Ill). He has a male child in 1840 the right age for Jefferson. James last shows up in the 1847 Searcy co.tax list. His widow, Mary Hunt Ellis, is living with Daniel and Nancy Lane in 1850. Nancy was born in Ill and presumably is James and Mary Ellis' daughter as well as the Elizabeth Carrollton, also born in Ill, living in the same house. Elizabeth was the widow of William Carlton (as his name appears in the 1840 census and tax lists). Other probable children are William Ellis, who married a sister of Jefferson's wife (according to family tradition), and Mariah Ellis (also Listed as born in SC by Lacy, but born in Ill on the original microfilm). James Ellis has children the right age and gender for William and Mariah in 1840. Nancy Lane and Elizabeth Carlton are living with their husbands in 1840. Daniel and Nancy Lane's oldest boy is named Jefferson. He and Jefferson Ellis were probably named for their uncle, Charles Jefferson Hunt.

There is no doubt that Christopher C. Horn's second wife was Martha Jane Ellis. According to his Civil War federal pension record, they were married @ 15 November, 1869 in Marshall by Joshua Reaves. This record says his first wife, not named, died 4 April, 1867. Martha Jane Ellis was the daughter of Jefferson and Charlotte Ellis. This is confirmed by the 1850 Searcy co. census. I also have a deposition by Oscar Redman, dated 13 December 1910, listing Charlotte's children as James H. Ellis; Sarah A., wife of T. Cotton; Martha Jane, wife of C. C. Horn; Lousia, wife of C. T. Cotton; Arena, wife of J. F. Sanders; and Thomas J.Ellis. He says that Charlotte died in 1899. The death certificate of James H. Ellis (my ancestor) lists his parents as Jefferson and "Lottie" Begley Ellis. Family tradition says "Lottie" was the daughter of Henry and Sophia Dowdy Begley. The only supporting documentation I have for this is that Henry
Begley had a daughter the right age to be Charlotte in the 1840 census. Henry's brother, John, has no daughters in 1840. They are the only Begley famlies in Searcy co. in 1840.
