I am looking for some information about Henrietta Clark and George Ellis. I think Henrietta lived in Wildwood County during the 1870 census. I found a marriage license for them in Forsyth County, N.C. On the license was a witness with the last name of Ellis. So far, this is the only trace I have found of *George Ellis. I do know that Henrietta Ellis moved to Muncie, Indiana and married John Henry Jones. I also know that her children from her first marriage lived there with her. *I would like to know where George Ellis was and why some of the younger children were placed in a children's home in Miami County Ohio. *I can't find George and Henrietta after they moved from N. Carolina in the 1870's. However, Julius Winfield Ellis who was their son was born in Indiana (I think.). Could he have been born in Muncie, Indiana where I found him later living with his mom and stepdad?
