John Ellzey Bible

The Ellzey is not a direct line family of mine. However, the Ellzey family married into my Alford, Fortenberry & Smith lines. They were our neighbors, friends & in laws.

Finding the Bible record on line at Genealogy Gophers was a nice surprise. It yielded the oldest information I have on this family.
