    From Richard Ellison: Yes it seems as though the Ellison in Patience Crain's letters is Jesse Washington Ellison. William Ditto and he were in the same unit under Cpt Ross Company G, 6th Texas Cav. He served as a Private.

    From the Letters of James & Patience Crain Black during the Civil War. Patience Crain Black is Jesse Washington Ellison's wife's first cousin.

    (letter written by James Black’s cousin- William Ditto)

    Camp Washington, Arkansas January 14/62 [1862]

    Mr. James Black, Sir your letter came to hand this morning and found me enjoying the best of health. All the Bosque boys are in fine health except Jess Ellison; he has been in bad health ever since we came in to quarters. We have had a fight since I wrote to you before. Just before we started on the scout, we had a right smart running fight, nothing like an engagement. Some of the boys are blowing smartly but I think they will have something to blow for yet: About 50 of Capt.. Ross’ Company was in the fight. B. D. Arnold’s son Thomas was killed and Whittington, a young man that was living at Dr. Linsley’s was wounded. There was nine killed on the field and twenty wounded speaking of the whole company.

    My Dear Husband, [Patience to her husband James Black]
    Jess Ellison has returned on Furlough of forty days, he looks rather worsted I suppose his health is far from being good. He is gone to see his Mother now; he left all the Boys in fine health.

    (page 24)
    [no date on this letter] (Patience to James Black)
    Eullie (Wiley?) JONES talks of you often. He is very anxious to see you. Jess Ellison's health is improving. He was to see our Cousin Sue not long since.

    Letters page 29 from William BLACK to James].

    May 7th. 1862 Dear Brother;
    . . .I expect it is impossible to get any money from Ellison and Shaver. They are both going to the war,

    Write to me when you get this.
    Your brother, William BLACK.

    [added note from Patience on same page]
    Mr. BLACK, Jessie ELLISON was here last night, just what anyone would expect. He said he did not see your brother William, but heard he would be off for war soon. All of your relatives there are well.. . .

    Well Mother is calling me to breakfast, so Good Bye, darling Jimmie
    Patie Wednesday 4th. [June 1862]

    Pg 34
    South Bosque June 6th 1862 Dearest Jimmie:

    I am seated this very warm Sabbath morning to write to you my thoughts and what has taken place since I wrote you last,. . . Mrs. Ellison told me to tell you she thought she would be to see you for she thought a great deal of you. She said she thought your brother would not go to war as his is not able. He intends visiting Bosque this summer. Mart and Jess will leave next week for Corrinth.

    Pg 37
    Bosque Valley June 10th 1862 [from Patience Crain Black's sister, Martha Crain to James Black]
    Well brother Jimmie according to promise I will write you a few lines in Paties letter although she has written all the news. The news we have at the present is glorious if we knew it to be true. If it is true which I hope and pray is the war will be at a close in a short time. Jessie [Jesse Washington Ellison] and Mart left yesterday for the war again.
    I had the pleasure of going to the city last Thursday; we had a nice little crowd: Mrs. Wiley, Jessie, Lou [Mary Louisa Ellison, Jesse Ellison's sister], Mollie, Jim and myself. Lou had the pleasure of riding with Jessie there and back. Lou had her ambrotype taken for Jessie. She was on one side and he on the other. . .


    South Bosque July 10th 1862
    My Dearest Jimmie: --
    They have had letters from Mart and Jess; they were at Tyler and expected to remain some time.

    Fort Hebert, Galveston, Texas July 5th, 1862
    Dearest wife, [James to Patience]
    Pg 50
    Give my love to Cousin Sue. Tell her not to marry yet. I think ___ will be left a widower after awhile. If old lady Ellison has not gone home yet give her my compliments.. . .
