Varanus P. (Ranus) JELLISON is my first cousin, four times removed, the grandson of my fourth great grandfather Joseph H. JELLISON. He was born 11 July 1853 in Ellsworth, Hancock County, Maine to George H. and Philena (LANCASTER) JELLISON. He never married, working as a day laborer for his entire life. He was counted in two censuses that I can find the 1880 in Waltham, Maine, and 1900 in Eden, Maine, living as a border with brother Otha. He died while in surgery with Dr. Samuel SILSBY [Silsbee?], in Bangor, Maine. His burial plot is still unknown, but his parents were buried in Mariaville, Maine as is his brother Otha, the cemetery does have unmarked graves, thus it is possible to believe he was buried there. As with all family that has been highlighted on this blog, I do appreciate any and all help in authenticating all facts.
