William and Ida Hearne of Mercer, West Virginia

The William Hearn in Mercer 1900 must be the same as William Hearne md. Ida. The ages, and the daughter "Ora" and "Awra" match up too well, the name of grandma "Aura" (White) Hearne.

William Robert Ellis and Sarah Ellen Hearne

Got a letter from Grady Ellis, who has information about this family from an Ellis Family Bible. She says, "William Robert Ellis born on Jan 9, 1868, and died on Mar. 09, 1887... William was a minister. Their children were: William Ellis, Alfred Lee Ellis, Gardner L. Ellis, Eunice E. Ellis."

This family is mentioned in Hearne's book on page 53:
"Martin L., son of Isaac and Eleanor Hearne, born 1808, lived in Laurel, Del., and died 1873; he married Sarah Ellis, 1833; she was born 1814 and is now living (1894). Their children are: Ellen, Louisa, Emily, Eunice, Lucy, Martin L., Frank, Edgar. Ellen born 1835, married Rev. W. R. Ellis; children: Lee, Gardiner, William and Eunice."

Here is the information from the 1880 census, Delaware, Sussex, Dagsboro Hundred (page 62)24 Jun 1880:
