Surnames: Strother, Willis, Whittington, Elliott, Dyer, Johnson
My gggrandmother,Ellen Elliot Whittington married a James Strother, on Feb. 7, 1867 in Alexanderia. I have a copy of the marriage license. There is a J.D. Strother,and Wm. Godwin witnesses., and D.W. Willis,Sr. (Jr.) minister. James and Ellen are both buried in the Oakdale Cemetery. James b. 1838-d. 1891. Ellen b. 1839-d.1919.
I also have a Wm. David Elliott III that married Ellen Johnson and Henry Machen Elliott married Ella Dyer. I'm trying to link the Strother family. Could there be a connection here? The 1900 census for Calcasieu Parish shows that Ellen had 15 children-with 9 living. I know that at least 3 were Whittington children and maybe 2 more. The only names I have for Strother children are ??Melburn b. 1881 and James (O)?? b. 1869-he was listed as a minister, married to Cora. Ellen was living with Oscar, her son in the 1910 census for Natchitoches Parish. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

my relatives show that on Oct. 26, 1878 by great-grandmother Barbara Arabella Strother was born to James Strother and
Ellen Elliot Whittington. Barbara Strother married Lafayette Sigler. Their graves are in Elizabeth LA.
Hope this helps.

I have been trying to locate more information re: my father's family. He was one of the seven children born to Barbara and Lafayette Sigler. Since his death, I have been out of touch with my Sigler relatives. I would appreciate hearing from any of my cousins, or their children.
Father = Millard, born Sugartown, LA in 1901.
