So far as Marion County is concerned, the first of the name in this county was John C. Ellerbe, of the same family spoken, of above. He married a Miss Wickham, daughter of Dr. Thomas J. Wickham, a man of much note in his day in Liberty or Marion; she was wealthy and perhaps the only child; at any rate, John C. Ellerbe married her and came down into Marion and settled on her property, and lived and died there ; he retained her property and increased it ; not an old man when he died-he died some time in the forties; his widow survived him, and afterwards married ex-Governor B. K. Henagan ; no offspring from the marriage; they both died in a few years. John C. Ellerbe left his family in good condition; his large property went, as the law then was, mostly to the Henagans that is, the personal property; the large landed estate went to the heirs of the widow, who, I think, survived him. By John C. Ellerbe's marriage, be had and raised three sons and three daughters. The sons were William S., Richard P. and Edward B. ; the daughters were Joanna, Julia and Sallie. ;
