from 22 May 2012 Dickie/Terry - dntwag (at) sbcglobal.net :
I'm researching Sarah Ellen Childers, born abt 1848 in either Pendleton or
Grant Co., Ky. I believe she is the youngest dau of Robert Childers, son of
Henry, born abt 1805, and Emily Belew, dau of Thomas Belew, bn abt 1816. Robert
and Emily were married in 1834 and died in 1850. Two of their children are
living with Thomas Belew in 1850, John Wesley and Robert Childers. I can find
no record for Sarah Ellen. In 1860 the children, including Sarah, are living
with Wm Dale and his wife Sarah in Quitman, Wood Co., Tx. There is a marriage
record of Sarah Belew and Wm Dail in 1843, Pendleton, Ky. On the two census
records I've seen Wm is bn abt 1822 and Sarah is bn abt 1819. My guess is Sarah
Belew is either the dau of Thomas and sister of Emily or she is the dau of
James Webb Belew, and a cousin of Emily. No records found to support that.
There are probate records to support the relationship of James, Robert, and
Sarah to Thomas Belew and Robert Childers. John Wesley marries Martha in 1864
and Robert marries Mary Catherine Dorsey in 1868, both probably in Wood Co.,
Tx. I believe Sarah Ellen married Mansil W. Matthews abt 1865 in Wood Co. There
is an M. W. and Sarah Matthews living in Wood in 1870. I cannot find any
marriage records for Wood Co. Sarah's 2nd husband is T. C. Elliott. On the
death cert for their son Frank, he states his mothers maiden name is Childress.
I have other info on Sarah, but nothing to show she is Sarah Ellen Childers,
dau of Robert and Emily Childers. I'm hoping you may be able to shed some
light. Take care, Dickie ;
P.S. next day 23 May 2012:
Thank you for your quick response. If I'm correct about Sarah Ellen being the
daughter of Robert Childers/ Emily Belew and the wife of Mansil W. Matthews,
the nephew of the more renown minister, then she led a busy life. by 1870 she
is married to M. W. Matthews and has two children, a John W. and a Della. By
1880 she is married to Thomas Elliott (I don't know what happened to Mansil).
The second marriage for both. In 1907, Thomas dies. On 17May1909 she marries
R. C. Lockaby. On the 1910 census she is living with Lockaby, her daughter,
Della and Della's husband Samuel Stricklin in Cooke Co. Tx. On 2Jun1912 she is
married to a Calvin Coker. I don't know what happened to Robert Lockaby.
Sarah and Calvin Coker were married in Hugo, Oklahoma. Della and Samuel
Stricklin purchased some land from Calvin in 1915 in Oklahoma and in 1920 they
are living in Pushmataha Co., Okla. In 1920 Calvin and Sarah are living with
Sarah's son Tom P. Elliott in Cooke Co., Tx. In 1930 Della and Sam are living
in Chaves Co., New Mexico. Living in the same household are John Matthews and
his mom Sarah E. Matthews. This info is gathered from census records, marriage
records, some death records and from the information provided from research of
Calvin Coker. The researcher who found the record of Calvin Coker and Sarah E.
Lockaby in Hugo, Okla. also found a marriage of a Sarah Coker and a W.
Roundtree in 1921, Hugo, Okla. I am not sure if this is the same Sarah, but
what makes it interesting is a death record I found on Familysearch.org for a
Sarah Ellen Roundtree who died in Elida in 13Feb1932. Elida is not far from
where Della is living. The downside of that death record is the father is
listed as W. Childers.
I'll keep looking and hopefully find a record that confirms these
relationships. Take care, Dickie ;

Frank Cleveland Elliott, bn 1 Feb 1885 (I've seen 84-87), dies 11Dec1959 in
Marshall, Harrison Co., Tx. Marries Mary Ella Davis (widow of Jesse F. Davis
and daughter of Joseph A. Davis). Frank is buried in Memory Park Cemetery,
Longview, Harrison Co., Tx., His death certificate shows father as Thomas Pryor
Elliott and his mother as Sarah Childress. His half sister Easter Elliott
McFadden gives the father's name as Thomas Cain Elliott. Frank's wife Mary Ella
bn 10Jan1884, dies 25Dec1974 in Greenville, Hunt Co. Tx., and is buried with
her first husband Jesse F. Davis in (I believe Prairie Valley Cemetery Hunt
Lula Belle Elliott bn 13 Dec1884(probably Gainesville in Cooke Co., Tx.), dies
29Mar1977 in Oklahoma and is buried, along with her husband Earnest Willoughby
Crain (Crane) in the Maple Grove Cemetery, Siminole Co. Oklahoma. Lula Bell and
Earnest were married in Cooke Co. Tx., 4Aug1904, but were living in Oklahoma by

I forgot, there is one more son of Tom and Sarah Elliott. His name is Thomas
Pryor Elliott bn 14 Feb 1877, died 28Oct1946. He is buried in the Fairview
Cemetery in Gainesville, Cooke co. His death cert lists his parents as unknown,
but his date of birth is after the marriage of Thomas and Sarah.
On the 1900 census it shows Sarah as having 9 children only 5 were still alive,
John William Matthews, Mary Idella "Della Matthews, Thomas Pryor Elliott, Lula
Belle Elliott, and Frank Cleveland. Thomas Cain had 2 children left from a
previous marriage to Margaret Bowen, Easter Elliott McFadden and James L.
