Lucy Mingus appears in the 1850 Census: Morgan Township, Morgan County, Ohio at p. 404:

Alva Ellis; age 39; carpenter; born Maine 
Lucy Ellis; age 34; born New York (but see note below) 
Wm Ellis; age 9; born Ohio
Mary A. Ellis; age 8; born Ohio
Otis Ellis; age 6; born Ohio 
Roswell Ellis; age 4; born Ohio
James Ellis; age 2; born Ohio 

Lucy Mingus married Alva Ellis on Oct. 20. 1839 in Morgan Co., OH. In the 1850 Census they were living next door to Roswell Whipple, presumably on the same farm previously inhabited by Gideon Mingus. It is interesting to note that she had a son, Roswell Ellis, named after Roswell Whipple. 

QUESTIONS by JLP: Are there any ELLIS Histories that might help? Is there a CENSUS record for Alva Ellis family for 1840? 

Reference: Ann H. Britton seeking information on Lucy Mingus, said to be born in New York in 1816, but, according to James L. Powell, she was probably born in Ohio.
