He created "Ellis Family Tree" list when Ellis family came from England in 1590. Other names are Tates, Listers, Culbersons, and Halls. His family informaton has started with Creek tribes of Georgia, Robert Roy MacGregor, Reverend Stephen Ellis who was founder of Pine Log Methodist Church in Rydal, Georgia, Sonoraville Tates who were ones of freemasons and Halls who were recorded in the book called District of Bloody Eighth.. His family had been lived in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia and Colonial North Carolina before American Revolution started. After the removal of Cherokees left Georgia by following Trail of Tears, some family moved to Georgia like Ellis and Tates in 1830s. Listers are residents of Scotland. Jean is one of them that left for the United States when she met Benson Ellis after the end of World War II.
During the American Civil War, his great great grandfathers were Confederate soldiers had fought in known battles of Civil War history. Newton W. Tate (1844-1936) and Columbus Culberson (1842-1890) were in Battle of Chickamauga under same 8th Georgia Infantry Battalion before 105 years before my parents met. Tate was one of oldest Confederates that lived over 90 years old and told great stories of battles. Tate's brother, Theodore (1834-1862) used to be 2nd sarge of 21st Georgia Volunteer Infantry. died in next day after he was shot in Battle of Bull Run (Manassas) (Second). Thomas Hall (1837-1904) was in 3rd Regiment, Confederate Cavalry. He was shot in a neck during Battle of Franklin but he survived.

His family were also involved with another wars. Benson Ellis (1906-1976) joined US Army during World War II where he fought Germans in European Theatre and met Jean Lister in England. After the World War II ended, Benson returned New York City aboard the "troopship" RMS Queen Mary with other American soldiers. late Gary Rolfson's father, Jack G.

The side of his late mother's were founders of the churches in the belief of Methodist.

Chris is single and he is liking women. He has a lot of hobbies. He collects almost everything from books to video games and his favorite is traveling for researching, having fun, and looking for new way of style, food, and information.
During his times of traveling, his stories are often goofy for his adventures. When Chris was eleven years old, his family visited Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida in November 1980, he walked backward while he talked to his late mother until he caught himself by falling in the water fountain. He got himself wet but he had to watch Disney parade on the Main Street. After he changed his clothes to his pajamas, he did not know that he had to be at Burger King for the supper so he was embarrassed that he was wearing pajamas. On December 1990 after he left Gallaudet University for Christmas vacation, he did not know that he was in a wrong car of Amtrak. The car was for the passengers who came to South Carolina so he was alone in a vacant car until he arrived at his scheduled stop, Gainesville, Georgia. On 1993, Chris' eyes were bad for viewing because of cataracts but he had to go to Washington, D.C. for Gallaudet University. He managed to drive his car without any accidents from Calhoun, Georgia until he failed to see the view of the road (Constitution Avenue). He thought that road was led to Gallaudet University. When he realized that was wrong way, it was too late. He crashed yellow barricade fences and almost touched the stairs of U.S. Capitol. He was escorted by U.S. Capitol police officers out of their ways, not being arrested. His eyes were fixed later at Georgetown University Hospital at Georgetown, Washington, D.C.. In Spring 1993, Chris and his cycling class were on a field trip by riding bikes to around Kennedy Center and back to Gallaudet for a lesson. Chris was not very skilled cyclist so he was very clumsy. He failed to turn around few bushes and crashed into one of bushes.
