I am thinking that Phonas Ellis Henson was actually Phonas Ellis and he married Judith Henson. Phonas just taking the Henson surmane after he married. I have no proof of this what so ever. If anyone has any leads of information, please be kind and contact me. This is not my family line, but would like to know what the case is here.
