bullet  General Notes:

NOTE: Betty Fink and others on Ancestry.com report that Eleanor married Robert Parker after her marriage to Aaron Pelton. However, it seems possible that she might have died after her son Ezekiel was b. in 1853 since Aaron Pelton was listed as widowed in 1855 and her Pelton children were listed with Eleanor's parents in the 1855 and 1860 census. In the 1900 census she states she has 2 children, 2 living. Could this Ellen who married Robert Parker be someone else??
