|Ellen surrounded by her Grandchildren|
Ellen had four siblings - Josephine, Charles Carroll, Marie Frances, and Catherine Margaret. All having been born in Marshalltown.
Her sister, Josephine, resided in Marshall County all of her life. She married John Macklin in 1909, and, together, they had seven children.
Her brother, Charles Carroll Welch, died at the young age of 15 and is buried in Marshalltown.
Marie Frances married William Charles White, 1919, in Crawford County. For a time they resided in Marshalltown before moving to San Diego, California. They had four children with the first two born in Iowa, and the last two born in California. William and Marie are buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in San Diego, California.
The youngest daughter of James and Mary, Catherine, married Maurice Francis Jackson in Marshall County, and they, too, moved to San Diego. It was there that they had their family of four children. Except, maybe, their son, Maurice, Jr, who records his birth place as Marshalltown on all of his records.
Maurice and Catherine both died in San Diego County, but the location of the graves are unknown as of this post.
