  • Notes 
    • Harvey Eller was married to Mary Caroline Vannoy, the daughter of Mary (Kilby) and Jesse Vannoy, on 25 November 1841. Harvey and Mary C. Eller objected to the slavery and the heavy liquor traffic going on in that part of the country· They decided to move to a better place to raise their children. So, in September 1852 they left North Carolina, for Jefferson County, Iowa. Later, they lived in Competine, Wapello County Iowa. Harvey and Mary were the parents of Virginia Eller, who married James Hook. James Hook and Virginia (Eller) Hook were the parents of James Hook, the author of “George Michael Eller and Descendants of His in America”. [3]
