I have to include this information that a cousin sent to us because it is so special to our family. Thank you Sherrie Porter.; Aunt Doris is the last of an Ellis Legacy: August 3rd marks the end of a generation.  My Great Aunt Doris has passed away.  She was my last Great Aunt on any side of the family.  She was the widow of my grandmother’s youngest brother, Uncle Harold Ellis.  My grandmother, Rosalie Ellis Dodson, was the youngest girl.  I got to doing the math.  From the birth of my Great Aunt Bessie in 1896 to today, that generation of my family spanned 125 years.  And boy howdy are there great stories and lots of great memories!   Lots of laughter!  I’m sitting here recalling many of them tonight.
