Ellender was born in 1817. She was the daughter of Robert Spearman and Ellender Smith. In 1850, Ellen is enumerated on the federal census with her father and brother Rutherford at which time her birth place is identified as Alabama. [1]. Ellen's father died in 1851 and she married John O. Vann, 3 Jun 1852, in Yalobusha County, Mississippi. [2] In all subsequent records Ellen is identified as having been born in South Carolina. [3]Generally, the earliest record made when a parent is living tends to be most accurate, but in the present case either South Carolina or Alabama is plausible. Ellen passed away in 1885. [4]
