It's taken me a while, but I have enough information now that I can confirm William and Mary Ellen are part of my Geddes family from Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Ireland ! (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Geddes-1044)(https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Geddes-1039) Still work to do. It fits with Doug Lockwood's answer.
