My grandfather, Alfred (Bud) Ellis was a first cousin to Luther Ellis’ adopted father William.
I have an Ellis reunion photo which includes my grandfather Bud Ellis, Luther Ellis, and the Rev. Charlie Dean(WZOB game). I knew there was some connection of Luther and Charlie, but just didn’t how?. I think I finally made the connection.
Charlie Dean was the son of Lorenzo Dean. Thus Lottie Dean was the aunt of Charlie Dean who preached on WZOB radio for many years.
Charlie Dean burial correction CHARLIE DEAN is buried in the Walnut Grove Cemetery. His father Lorenzo is buried at Wesley’s Chapel. Charlie Dean’s Aunt Lottie Dean Watkins Lankford is buried in the Lankford Cemetery.
