  Notes for ELLEN J. DENNARD:
Ellen J. Dennard, I believe, was listed as Allen, son of Thomas Washington, in the 1870 census. I have come to this conclusion with the following evidence:

John Floyd’s obituary lists as a survivor Mrs. Ellen Ellington, a name of a sister I had not heard before.

In the book at the Conyers library, I found mentioned that Stephen Benjamin Ellington, b 3-16-1863 in Newton County, d 11-22-1900, buried in Ellington Cemetery was married on 9-10-1885 to Ellen Dennard. Unfortunately I don’t think I wrote the title down but it had to do with widows and mothers of CSA soldiers receiving pensions etc. - it could be the book, A History of Rockdale County. I have page 667 listed.

In the 1900 census, Kanzada Dennard was a widow (of T. Washington Dennard) and head of a household. Living with her was Eugenia (their daughter who never married), Eliza Sparks, Kanzada’s sister, and Ellen J. Ellington, daughter, born September, 1866 which is about the time that Allen in the 1870 census was born.

1870 Census - Newton Co. showed:

Thomas W. Dennard      50      M
Kanzada      44      F
Martha      26      F
James      21      M
Sanford      19      M
Mary      17      F
Melvina      13      F
Eugenia      10      F
Jefferson Davis      9      M
George W.      6      M
Allen      3      M
Charlie      1      M


1900 Census - Rockdale Co. Showed:

Dennard, Kazanda      70      F     
“ , Eugenia      40      F      Daughter
Sparks, Eliza      81      F      Sister
Ellington, Ellen J.      33      F      Daughter


These pieces of evidence lead me to believe that Allen was really Ellen. I think a little more 'digging' will turn up a marriage record on Stephen and Ellen. Perhaps a birth date and other connection will turn up as well. I will be checking the 1880 census records.

Notes for R
ACHEL ELIZABETH NORTON:
Obituary, The Conyer Times, 1898

"Mrs. Jno. I. Dennard, Sr., died very suddenly at her home in Sheffield District last Tuesday, and was bruied at the Almond graveyard Wednesday. Mrs. Dennard was in her usual health and went to the woodyard and stooped to take some wood. She fell in the act and was carried in the house in an unconcious condition where she soon expired. She leaves a husband and many relatives and friends to morn her death."

She is buried next to John I. Dennard, Sr., her husband. There was at one time a stone (not a tombstone) to mark her grave. But, when I visited there in April, 1997, there was no marker for her. John I.'s first wife, Arminda was on the left, John was in the middle, and a spot on his right is where we think Rachel Elizabeth is buried.      Carolyn Golowka, 4-22-1997.
