About Adolphus D. Mangum

He likely carried the Mangum name from his mother rather than an "unknown Mangum". He was most likely the son of Ben Ellis (see below). His siblings named Mangum may also be from Ben Ellis. Pictures of Adolphus and Ben Ellis show strikingly similar ears and nose.

Notes for ELIZABETH •BETSY" MANGUM:

According to the late Mildred Mangum Harris, Betsy Mangum had 3 illegitimate children before she married Elijah Veasey. It is believed by some family members that Ben Ellis fathered these 3 children.

1860 Betsy was in the household of her brother William Wesley Mangum. Her age was given as 22. Her mother

She was 35 and keeping house. 10 year old Guthrie was not listed with the family Adolphus was shown as 6 years old (should be 8) and Charies as 4 (should be 3).
