  • Notes 
    • Washington T. Eller and his twin brother, Drury were born on the family farm 22 April 1874. The Eller farm was just outside of Celina and they grew wheat. Drury died very young and Wash grew up to be a cowboy working for the 6666 Ranch. He wasn't much over 5 feet tall, however, he could ride a horse and rope a cow with the best of them. As a young man he had been hit in the face with a shot gun blast and lost most of his teeth, but that never stopped him from enjoying a good steak. He never married and in his later years lived with several relatives who loved him dearly. (Posted by Pamela Price, Ancestry.com)
