Ezena, age 15, was living with her widowed mother in 1881, in Lot 6.

Not sure what to make of this.

Ann McArthur, wife of James Ellis and widow of Robert Ellis, has Zena Ellis, wife of Dederick Potter on her gravestone. The History of the Ellis Family says she married a Mr. William Potter and had one son.

But when Zena married Dedric Potter, her father's name was recorded as George. Perhaps she gave her brother and sister in law's names (George and Eleanor) in error. Zena was not living with Dedric in the 1900 US census. A Dedrick Potter died in Massachusetts in 1906.
