Ellen was born in June 1870 at Cleveland, Ohio. She was the daughter of immigrants, George Clezie and Maggie Megert. My father remember her as "Aunt Nell" and most records show her name as Nelly or Nellie.
Three weeks after Nell was born, the census-taker visited the Clezie home at Cleveland, on 13 July 1870. But the census-taker was sloppy! The surname was misspelled and the baby was shown as a boy:
'Cleasy Allen, age 1/2, male, white, born Ohio'
Her name was correctly shown as Ellen in the 1880 census.
Nell married Fred Miller in 1890, when she was almost 20. The marriage record showed her name as "Nellie L. Clezie". They had 9 children born between 1890-1910. Nell passed away in 1947, age 76.
