William Ellingwood, son of William Ellingwood and Abigail Woodbury,  was born 10 June 1716 in Beverly, Massachusetts, and died 13 July 1766.  He married Elizabeth Woodbury, his first cousin, on 12 May 1737 in Beverly.

William Ellingwood is my first cousin, 8 generations removed.  We are both descended from his grandparents (and my 8th grandparents) Benjamin Ellenwood and his wife Mary.  Elizabeth Woodbury is also my first cousin, 8 generations removed, since we are both descended of Benjamin Ellenwood, too, as well as our common WOODBURY and DODGE ancestors.
