    Notes 
    • Presented for a long time as the parents of Ora Ella Skaggs, James M. Scaggs & Elizabeth Compton are not Ella's parents. An Ella Scaggs does show in the 1870 census with these parents. Either that is a different Ella Scaggs/Skaggs, or perhaps James M. Scaggs is the brother of Ella's father, Thomas Scaggs, and perhaps has adopted his brother's children. Because that is a possibility, their record and lineage is still maintained on this site. If further research reveals this is not the case (i.e.-that it is a different Ella), their information will be removed. Ora Ella Skaggs, aka Orrie Ella Scaggs, was born to Thomas Scaggs/Skaggs & Mary Turner. Thomas's own marriage used the spelling Scaggs, but in the record of the of his son, James L. Skaggs, the Skaggs spelling was used.
