Research Note, 27 Feb 2009:
The "correct" spelling of Ellen's middle name, and in fact which name was her first name and which was her middle name is unclear. Her given name is shown as Meschew on her marriage record, and that name is recorded variously as Meshew, Misha, and Mish in census records. The death certificate of her daughter, Ellen Mishew Crudup, shows her mother's name as Mishew Ellen McNeill. Other records also disagree as to whether Ellen was her first or middle name.3,30,31,32,27,33,4,2
