Tabitha Jellison

Tabitha JELLISON is my first cousin seven times removed; we are related through her grandparents, my seventh great grandparents Ichabod and Patience (DONNELL) JELLISON.  She is the daughter of Job and Susannah (KINCAID) JELLISON, born 23 September 1757 in York, Maine.[1]  She married Calvin HALL 22 November 1781 in Topsham, Maine.[2]  They had seven children:  Martin, Calvin, Susanna, John, Zilpha, Job and Francis.  She died about 1798 in Litchfield, Maine.

As with other names there are many variations found with Jellison.  Just with Tabitha’s name I found: Jellison, Jillison, Geleson and Geleeson.  Remember to use all possible variations when looking for your ancestors.
