Ancestor's Name Electa Lewis
Ancestor's Location Princeville, IL
Dates (birth, death, marriage, etc)
According to the 1860 census for Colorado, her older son was living with his paternal grandparents in Colorado in 1860, and it lists Electa's birthplace as Massachusetts.  She married Elmer Davis in Peoria County, IL in 1853, had two children, Clarence born in 1874 and Caleb Elmer born in 1875.  Her husband died in 1876, and I have no further information about her.  Family legend says she remarried, and the new husband did not want two little boys around, which is why Clarence was sent to live with his grandparents, and my father, C. Elmer, was sent to Iowa to live with an aunt and uncle.  Another story is that she died shortly after her husband.  Electa is my grandmother, and I have searched for 40 years to find her and her parentage.
