Ancestry[edit | edit source]
Ellen's parents are not known. They are believed to have immigrated to America in 1847, at the start of the Irish Potatoe Famine. There is a Henry Stackpole (1828-?) in Waterbury in 1860 who could conceivably be Ellen's father. He was, however, born in Maine, and is presumed to be unrelated.
