Ella Christine Pollan1

F, ID# 4142, b. 1877, d. 1909

Main gate, Rice Cemetery, Rice, Tex. Photo was taken by Dave Bell, Lubbock, Tex., and is used here with his permission.
  • Other Names*: Ella Pollan.
  • Note*: One source says her parents were George Washington Pollan (1866-1922) and Mary F. Pollan (1871-1927), but that cannot be correct if Ella was born in 1877. More research is needed to determine her parents' identities.5
