  • Notes 
    • John W. Eller was part of the family when his father brought them from Bowling Green, Kentucky, to Collin County, Texas, around 1865. John was 16. His wife's family moved from the area around St. Joseph, Missouri, about the same time. She told members of the family that her family came by covered-wagon and that she walked much of the way. John helped establish the Church of Christ, which first met in his home. Later he donated land for the Francis Avenue Church of Christ.
