I'm so confused! I do know for sure that my grandfather's name was James M. Ellis, "killed in the war" as recorded in grandmother's Bible. Of course she only recorded what her mother, Sarah Ann (Ellis) Hall, told her. My grandmother, Lucy Ann Ellis, daughter of Sarah Ann and James M. Ellis was born 19 November 1862 in Alabama, but was raised in Mississippi. Pvt James M. Ellis, 7th Miss. is listed on the memorial at Point Lookout Camp Prison, MD and I think there was a James M. Ellis killed at Meridian, MS, but he was too young to be the father of my grandmother. Can you help?
