NOTES: Benton County was changed to Calhoun county in 1858. Later Cleburne
Co., was formed in 1866 from Calhoun, Randolph and Talladega Counties. The
family may not have even moved to be in Benton co., in 1850, Calhoun in
1860 and Cleburne in 1870.
   According to the Cleburne Co., Heritage Book, Sarah ELLIS was the mother
of Sitha/Sithy TENNISON, who married John Thrower. Which lends credence to
the fact that Sarah/Susan remarried to Benjamin Ellis in 1858. It also states
that Sitha's father was Mathias Tennison.
