Ely Query

Hi, my husband's ancestors are Ely's.  We know that my husband's grandfather was Frank Ely .

His father was Stanley M. Ely  
His father was Jacob J. Ely
 
His father was John R. Ely
 
His father was Zelophehad Ely
 
His father was Ammiruhama Ely
 
His father was William Ely
 III  
His father was William Ely
 II  
His father was Richard Ely
  (Richard Ely was born 1610 in Plymouth , Devonshire , England ).

I was hoping first that you might have some information that goes back further and that you would have something that would help support what we have above.  (I found that information on ancestry.com, well from Jacob up to Frank we knew...........the rest is just taken from ancestry.com)  Sara Wilbur  [slwilbur@tusk.edu]
