There was a Eugene Eller that used to live in Avery Co. NC
who had family in Wilkes CO. "Gene" Eller was Clerk of court for years when I was growing up. He was married to Julie Trivitt, I believe. They had either twelve or thirteen children. One of his children became Clerk of Court. His name was Dean Eller. If this is of interest to you his great grandson, Robert, " Nub" is now clerk of court. His address would be; Clerk of Court, Avery Co. Court House, Newland, N.C. 28657. Hope this is of interest to you.
Best wishes.

Eller in Wilkes Co.

I do not know who he is however, most of the Fox's in this area are all related to the following: sons or descendants of Allen, Hugh, James, John who were sons of James Fox born 1740. Would you please send dates on these and your line directly to me at E-mail address am trying to sort them all out. Most of these Fox's were in Wilkes then to Burke Co and Buncombe Co as the county lines changed.

I have a Martha Fox b. 1776 in NC, supposedly dau. of Hugh Fox (need proof). She married Elisha AUSTIN. They moved to Warren County, Tenn. then ended up in White County, Illinois. Need proof she is Hugh's dau. and also proof of his parents.

Do you have a Hilliard Penland in your family that was married to Ida West b 1888? They lived in Buncombe County I think. I know that Ida was born there.
