Things to conciser when you're African-American and your last name is Ellison...

William Ellison (1790–1861), an American slave, then a slave owner.

Some mixed-race persons in the South became slave owners, and many who were accepted in the society supported the Confederacy during the Civil War. For example, William Ellison owned 60 slaves.

Hi Gene

You may be correct about the Berrian connection. Without a marriage or death certificate for her or one of the children showing her maiden name, it is hard to be sure.
