Ellis Album, Photo 60 – Elijah Cheney Willis

WILLIS, Elijah Cheney
Elijah Cheney Willis

Elijah Cheney Willis is my 1st cousin 3 times removed.  He is the son of Louise Delina Cheney and George Bloomfield Willis.  He was born 27 March 1903 in Laketown, Rich, Utah.

Laketown is a beautiful and very small town right next to Bear Lake.  What is especially remarkable to me about Elijah is that it appears he lived almost his entire life in the Bear Lake area.  I hope he loved it there.  I certainly do.



This photo comes from the twenty-eighth page of the album.  Here are pages twenty-eight and twenty-nine to give context for this photo:

    1. I agree! It helps that the photos are in such great shape, all of the details are there and it’s so easy to see the similarities. 🙂

    1. Yes he does! So far, this is the only photo I have noticed that is specifically of him. He has a few on FamilySearch but they aren’t great in quality and I don’t recall them well enough to say if he was smiling or not. Hopefully his descendants have a few good ones with a big smile!! 🙂
