I am not related. Ellis county does not have any records online regarding this family.

Small’s listed in the 1900 US Census in Ellis County below the 1880 Alabama record.

Son listed as Milton; Margaret J, wife of Elijah, indicated as widow. Arrived in Texas after June of 1880, Elijah died between 1889 and 1900 ? Most of the 1890 census burned in 1921.

SMALL, Elijah & PERRY, M. [Margaret] J. married Dec 22, 1874, Marengo Co AL

Margaret’s parents not found in 1880 record.

….wifes' probably spoke to enumerator and did not know where their in laws were from.

There were 3 Emma’s in Ellis county who were born in AL appx 1873. One could be daughter of Elijah or none of them if she survived ?

None of the Small’s are listed in 1910 record in Ellis county.

[The 1910 record on Ancestry only lists “head of household”. You would have to locate the soundex cards at major library and look for Margaret Cantrell on an index card to see who she married or if she was a Cantrell in the 1910 record. She could have been residing with a married daughter in 1910 record and still have been Margaret Small ? I do not have access to Ellis county marriages to see if the girls or Margaret married there.]

thanks paula for the terrific work you did for me. I am ever so grateful. are there any other ways to trace the Small side of the family in north carolina any further. Also, how would i determine whether there would be indian or black blood in the family? Am aware of trail of tears etc. but will be reading more about alabama history. so grateful.... mc by the way, the elijah story fits very much the past down stories of my grandfather's life...

Mary Carol, I just recently found your post regarding Elijah Small and George M. Small of Italy, Ellis County, TX and I believe we are interested in the same Small family. The Elijah I am looking for was from Alabama and was a son of Lewis Small and his first wife Moriah. Perhaps we can help each other.

Surnames: Small, Westbrook, Parnell
Elijah Small's (1844-1890)first wife was Adeline "Ada" Virginia Small, daughter of Cyrus Brown Small and Henrietta Parnell.

Elijah's father was Lewis Small and Lewis' brother was Cyrus Brown Small. So Elijah married his first cousin.

Elijah Small's parents, Lewis and Rebecca Small, were slave owners in Dallas County, Alabama. I believe one of their black slaves was named Cyrus Small.
"A former slave, Cyrus Small, told The South Alabamian in 1898 that he remembered the first steamboat, the Mobile, that came up the river. He recalled the Virginia and said the first boat whistle he heard was that of the Viola. " (Source: The South Alabamian, Clarke County, Alabama, Jackson; article by publisher Jim Cox, titled 'Imagine the Fun of the Old Tombigbee Steamboats' March 25, 2004)
This black Cyrus Small named a daughter of his Rebecca, probably after his former owner.

I have not found any African American or Indian ancestry within these families however.
