Ellis Family Of
Southern Vermont

      The following set of Ellis biographies was collected by John E Young (born in 1943), starting about 1968, and was based largely on the oral family history told by Mary Elizabeth Ellis (born 1883). Items in the following box are quotes from letters written by Mary Elizabeth Ellis in the 1960s, when she was a bit senile, and are the framework upon which this genealogy was built. Mary took great interest in her family history. (ME,JY)

      The Ellis “forebears did not arrive in the Mayflower, but came in 1690, and landed on Plymouth Rock also and settled in Vermont near the 1620 arrivals. He [Joseph Allen Ellis, father of Mary E Ellis] was born in Bennington Vermont on June 15th 1764.” [Year is wrong; it was 1854.] His parents Charles and Mary Elizabeth Ellis left the Rocky Terrain of that state and came to the state of Illinois. They were farmers, and when my father was 15 they left Illinois for the Black rich soil of So. Minn.” Charles Ellis “was a 6 ft 5 son of Vermonter.” “Father was a cousin of my grandmother, the little Irish lady, from the bogs and rocks of No. N.Y. State 70 miles from the Canadian border. On a clear day one could see the St. Lawrence River.” [Mary E Ellis was mixing up her mother Elizabeth Curtin and her grandmother Elizabeth Ellis, mother of Joseph Allen Ellis]. “John Ellis, killed in the Battle of Bennington Vermont, was the father of my grandfather Charles Fayette Ellis.”

Other statements she made might actually be for members of her CURTIN side of the family. Mary E Ellis also said that the wife of her distant Ellis ancestor in Bennington, VT married a Dutch woman, Serena DeJung. (ME,JY)

Caroline married Levi Welch on 18 April 1845 at Williamstown, Berkshire Co MA. It would appear that Caroline and her parents lived in Pownal, but after her mother died, and her father remarried, they lived in Berkshire Co, just a short walk to the south.

f.     Lawrence Welch, b 1854 in Lake Co IL, probably died in the 1860s. (46q)

In Berkshire Co VT, at Williamstown, there was an Orin Welch and his wife Hulda who had many children, one of them being Levi Welch. But this Levi was born in Williamstown on 5 December 1822.

Pownal is in the southwest corner of Bennington Co, which is the county in the southwest corner of VT. And Pownal is about three miles north of Williamstown, in the northwest corner of MA. (SD,46q,44b,48s)

His gravestone had his death date and “AGED 54Y. 4M 16D.” Caroline remained at Windsor, with son Auburn running the family farm. She died there on 9 July 1903 and was buried in Stockport Cemetery. They had ten children, all born in Morgan Co, with eight still living in 1900-

        Charles Ellis [E1b7k], son of John Ellis Sr of Windsor Co VT, was born 1 April 1801 at Barnard, Windsor Co. His great granddaughter Mary Elizabeth Ellis (born in 1883) said the mother of her grandfather Ellis was Serena DeJung, a Dutch woman born at Albany, NY. But marriage records of Windsor Co show Charles was married by Huthridge Haven to Ruth Woodward of Barnard on 3 December 1823 at Barnard. Therefore, Charles must have been married twice, the first wife (and mother of his eldest child) was Serena. Serena was 15 years old when she married, born at Albany, New York, and probably died by 1823, since Charles married Ruth in December 1823; Serena must have died soon after the birth of Caroline, not at the birth of Charles Jr, as source ME said. Charles died at Barnard on 20 February 1877, age “75-10-19" according to his gravestone. In 1850 he was a farmer at Barnard, and living with him were his parents. And living eight doors away was his sister Sarah Ellis and her husband Hiram B Putnam. Charles had seven children, most born at Barnard-

1.     Caroline Ellis [E1b7k1], b Mar 1821

2.     Charles W Ellis [E1b7k2], b Aug 1824

3.     Norman Thomas Ellis, b c1826, died unmarried at Barnard on 26 October 1865. He was a watch repairman and toy maker, but in 1860 was a farmer. (L,54,2nq)

4.     Aurora Ellis, b c1828, died at Barnard on 10 August 1869, unmarried. She was a toy maker with her brother Norman. (C,54,2nq)

5.     Arvilla Ellis, b c1831, died at Barnard on 3 December 1841. (C,54)

6.     Truman Ellis, b c1835, died at Barnard on 26 November 1841. (C,54)

7.     Lutheria Ellis, born c1839, died at Barnard on 2 December 1841. (54)

Source 54 does not mention children #1 and #4. Children #2 and #3 were permanently crippled by the same disease which killed the three youngest siblings. (C,54,ME,44n,2himn)


        Charles W Ellis [E1b7k2], son of Charles Ellis and Ruth Woodward, was born in August 1824 in Bennington Co, VT. 1850 census records of Berkshire Co MA (the county immediately south of Bennington Co) shows Charles as 25 years old; he was age 36 in the 1860 census of Lake Co IL, and 45 in 1870; in 1880 in Steele Co MN his age was 55, and in 1900 in Steele Co he was age 75 (born in August 1824). In all these census reports, his birthplace was consistently given as VT, with the exception of the 1860 census (that gave MA, same as his wife). Hence we can be pretty sure he was born in August 1824 in VT. All census records for Charles show his name as “Charles Ellis” except for the 1900 census, which gave the middle initial of “W;” perhaps the W stands for Woodward, his mother’s name. “His wife was his cousin, either second cousin or second cousin one time removed. She was Mary Elizabeth Ellis, daughter of a Bennington, Vermont family” (per ME). Mary E Ellis, wife of Charles, was the daughter of a Mr Ellis and Maria Wick. Mary was born about 4 May 1822 (per death records; 1850 census says she was age 19, age 29 in 1860. 40 in 1870). Elizabeth’s death records say that she died at age “48 years, 4 months, 8 days” and died of a fever soon before her daughter’s death on 12 September 1871. Therefore her birth date must have been about 4 May 1822, or a few days before then. She was five years old when her mother died.

        Charles and Mary were living in Berkshire Co MA in 1850; in 1860 and 1870 they were in Lake Co IL; in March 1871 they moved to Aurora Township, Steele Co MN, where they remained. Mary died there of tuberculosis soon after arriving from IL. Charles soon married widow Harriet Scott at Owatonna on 5 December 1872, but she deserted him within a few months. He then married wife #3, widow Sarah B Brown at Owatonna on 1 April 1879. She was born about 1825 in OH of New England parentage. Charles died at Owatonna, MN in the 1910s, probably at his son Charles’ home where he was living in 1900 and 1910. In the marriage record of Charles to Sarah, his name was given as “Charles W Ellis,” and his granddaughter Mary E Ellis (source ME) said that her grandfather Ellis “married widow Brown.” He and Mary had eight children-

a.     Charles Fayette Ellis, b Feb 1849 at Williamstown, MA, but grew up at Lake Co IL, then moved to Steele Co MN in March 1871. He married Madora I Gabriel in Steele Co on 5 July 1875 at Owatonna. The marriage was witnessed by Matilda and Lillie A Gabriel, Madora’s mother and sister. In 1880 they were living in Steele Co MN at Aurora Township where Charles was a farmer, and in 1900, 1910, and in 1920 were at nearby Owatonna. They had apparently lived for a while in KN in the 1890s since their daughter Myrtle was born there. Madora was born 4 July 1857 at Kewaskum, Washington Co in WI, daughter of George Gabriel, a wagon maker born in France, and Matilda _____ from OH. Charles was a house painter in 1920. Madora died 25 September 1929 in Freeborn Co and was buried in Forest Hill Cemetery at Owatonna. In 1930 Charles was a widower living with his daughter Lillian at Alberta Lee in Freeborn Co. He died 4 December 1931, probably in Freeborn Co, and was buried with Madora. By 1900 they had 4 children (picture), and in 1920 were still in Owatonna. Their children were-

        1.     Guy A Ellis, b 21 Aug 1876 in Steele Co MN. He was living in Lynd Township in Lyon Co MN in 1900. In 1920 Guy was a stone cutter in Redwood Co MN, three counties to the northwest of Freeborn & Steele Counties. He married Bertha C Hinckley (picture) on 20 August 1901 at Deerfield, Steele Co. She was born in MN in 1876. Guy died 18 May 1921 in Renville Co and was buried at Owatonna; in 1930 Bertha was working as a nurse’s assistant at a state children school at Owatonna. They had two children-

                a.     Leslie E Ellis, b 1902 in MN, (picture) married Mary _____ and lived in St Paul, MN. In 1930 they lived at St Cloud, Stearns Co where he was a plumber. Mary was born in 1888 (14 years older that Leslie). They had a son-

                        1.     Patrick Ellis, b after 1930, worked for the Healey Plumbing Company at St Paul. (ME) (ME,G,C,29w, 76f)

                b.     Merl Ellis (son), b 1910 in MN, married and had children. (ME,29w) (ME, 20smfc,27u,29w)

        2.     Lillian D Ellis, b Feb 1883 in Steele Co MN. She married Thorwald W Sorenson on 17 February 1910, at Owatonna. Thorwald was born in July 1884 in MN of Danish parents, but in 1900 was a servant in the Fred Bunch home at Burnside, Goodhue Co. No parents were found. In 1910 they lived with her parents at Owatonna and he was a linotype operator. In 1920 they lived at Owatonna and were the only ones in their home, yet Thorwald was a “son-in-law” and “Lillian D” was a daughter; her parents were not listed, and the house number was #121 without a street name; this was census page 152A On page 150A were Lillian’s parents, at 121 Pearl Street. Lillian and Thorwald gave their ages in 1910 as 25 and 27; in 1920 they were age 27, off by ten years.

Thorwald was a linotype operator for a newspaper; in 1930 Lillian was his proof reader. Her 82 year old father lived with her and Thorwald in 1930 at Alberta Lee in Freeborn Co. Thorwald died on 9 December 1953 and was buried in Forest Hill Cemetery at Owatonna. They had no children shown in the 1920 census, but in 1830 there were two children-

                a.     Betty J Sorenson, b 1919 in ND. (49f)

                b.     Billy C Sorenson, b 1923 in MT. (49f)

Neither child knew where their parents were born, yet both parents knew. These two children were probably adopted. (20suvmwc,49f)

        3.     Charles F Ellis, b May 1887 in Steele Co MN, was still alive in 1910, but was not found. (20su)

        4.     Myrtle A Ellis [E1b7k2a4], b 22 Jun 1893

Madora’s name was spelled this way in the 1860 thru 1900 census records; The family of her father George Gabriel was living close by in 1880. He had apparently married a second time, about 1876. Wife number two was Martha Amy, and she was fifteen years younger than George (and ten years older than Madora). Madora’s family moved to MN around 1860 from WI. They had moved to WI from Eden, Erie Co NY, and had arrived in NY from France in the early 1830s when George was a small boy. (ME,MNd,44n,79n,46qr,MNr,20rsuvwmc,78q,49f)

f.     Blanche Ellis, born near Barrington, Lake Co IL in 1865, married probably either in Steele Co MN or in the Superior, WI area. (MNr,20s)

g.     Martha Ellis, born in 1868 near Barrington, Lake Co IL, was a young girl when her parents moved to Steele Co MN. She grew up there and married Leonard F Schmulzgone at Owatonna, Steele Co on 28 February 1885. (MNr, 20sm)

h.     dau Ellis, born 8 July 1871 in Steele Co, died on 12 September 1871 in Steele Co of “Fils” (a fever?). This was probably the same illness which killed her mother about the same time. (20d)

There were two other Ellis families in Steele Co MN in the 1870s and 1880s: Benjamin J Ellis, born in 1806 in NY and his wife Harriet; and William Ellis and his wife Sophia, both born in England in 1820. (ME,B,44n,46qr,20rsuvdmf)


        Clara D Ellis [E1b7k2d], daughter of Charles W Ellis and Mary Elizabeth Ellis, was born 4 January 1860 at Cuba, near Barrington, Lake Co IL (age 5 months in 13 August 1860 census). She moved with her family to Steele Co MN in the 1870s, and married George Washington McCloud in Steele Co on 24 October 1877. George was born in VT on 14 August 1855, son of Jonas Galusha McCloud (1821 VT) and Mandana Foster (1811 VT). In 1880 George and Clara lived with his parents in Steele Co; in 1885 and 1895 they were at Clinton Falls, Steele Co. And in 1900 George and Clara lived at Minnewaukan, Benson Co ND. They separated in the 1900s, and Clara lived with her eldest son in 1910. In 1920 and 1930 she claimed she was a widow, but George had remarried, and died 18 January 1930 in Polk Co WI. He was buried in Saint Croix Falls Cemetery, Saint Croix Falls, Polk Co WI. Clara remained in Benson Co until she died on 27 October 1948. She was buried in Free Church Cemetery at Minnewaukan.

        4.     Clemma Lochary, b Nov 1886 (14u)

Alfred Lochary’s second cousin Alvin M Ellis [E1b8e2c] lived four doors from Fanny Nott in 1870, in a neighborhood were there were many Ellis and Nott families.

Mrs Eva Wallace’s son from her firs marriage was Raymond Wallace, born in December 1886 in OH. In 1900 there were many Wallace families living close to Alfred and Eva. (14qrsmuc)

h.     Edward Lochary, b Mar 1865, married and had three children by 1900, and lived next to his brother Alfred. Edward’s wife and children weren’t living in his home then. (14rsu)

In 1850, Mary Burtsell (Birdsell?), age 20, was living with Edward and Clementine. Clementine’s younger sister Mariah married William Birdsell in 1857. In 1880 granddaughter Rosa Nott, age 6, lived with them. Rosa’s sister Clementine Nott, age 2, lived next door with Alfred Lochary [E1b8d2g] and Fanny. (W,M,34jk, 14qnrs)


 

Note: There are claims of two Clementine Ellis daughters: Isaac Ellis [E1b8e] had one, and Isaac’s brother Alfred Ellis [E1b8d] had one. Both sets of records agree on the 20 December birth date, but some records claim that Isaac’s daughter was born in 1825, and Alfred’s was born in 1823. Genealogy records state that each Clementine Ellis daughter married Edward Lochary So which Ellis brother had the daughter name Clementine? And which Clementine, if there were two, married Edward Lochary in 1843? Here are some facts to work with: Both brothers lived close by at Roxbury, Washington Co OH in 1830 and in 1840; both were married in the 1820s, and from four census records, we know that Mrs Clementine Lochary was age 25 in 1850, age 36 in 1860, age 46 in 1870, and age 57 in 1880. Hence it is obvious that she must have been born in 1823.

It appears that most of the birth dates given for these families came from an old bible record; when these written records become 150 years old, often the writing becomes faded, or the pages become dirty, thus making the correct information hard to read (a 3 & 5 are often confused; so are 1 & 4, and 7 & 9). And, in these old days, people were often barely literate, and didn’t think to say enough to describe which brother had which daughter. Instead, the printed bibles had blank page for Births, Marriages, and Deaths, and the family recorder simply wrote the person’s name and date, but failed to state whom that person was a daughter of. No one was thinking of the possible confusion 150 years later.

Following is a small chart showing three census records for the daughters of Alfred and Isaac, with family records added.

Alfred’s daughters, eldest to youngest

1830, born       1840, born       1850, born

1821-1825        1821-1825        Diantha, b 22 Jun 1822, married or died by 1850.

1821-1825        1821-1825        Clementine, b 6 Dec 1823, Edward Lochary in 1843 and in 1850 lived at Windsor, Morgan Co (census page 172, family #891). Her age then was 25. Alfred Ellis was still at Roxbury in Washington Co.

1826-1830        1826-1830        Caroline, b 23 Mar 1830, married Hershell Basil White in 1848. In 1850 they lived at Windsor, Morgan Co (census page 172, family #919).

not born            1831-1835        Mariah, b 6 Jan 1833, married William Birdsell in 1857. She was age 17 in 1850 at Roxbury, Washington Co.

not born            1831-1835        Lucy, b 16 Mar 1835, married David White in. In 1850 her age was 15 at Roxbury, Washington Co.

not born            1836-1840        Nancy Ellen, b 12 Jun 1838, married James Albert White in. She was age 11 in 1850, living at Roxbury, Washington Co.

Isaac’s daughters, eldest to youngest

1830, born       1840, born       1850, born

1826-1830        1821-1825        Sarah, b 1822 (no month and day given from family records), married Robert Wallace in 1841 and lived next to her parent in 1850. Her 1850 age was 27.

not born            1831-1835        Louisa Ellis, b 1831 (no month and day given from family records), married William Wallace in the mid-1840s and was age 21 in 1850, ten doors from her parents. Since she wasn’t shown in the 1830 census, Louisa must have been born in 1830 after the census was taken, or early in 1831.

not born            1836-1840        Nancy, b Sep 1836, married Matthew Wallace in 1856.

As you can see, all of Albert’s children’s ages were recorded (in a family bible?) down to the day and apparently handed down through Albert’s descendants, while Isaac’s weren’t. And from various census records and other records, there just wasn’t room for Isaac to have had a daughter born when Clementine was, and fit with the census records. Hence, Clementine was a daughter of Albert..




        Diantha Jerusha Ellis [E1b8e10], daughter of Isaac Ellis and Elizabeth Eddleblute, was born 10 May 1841 in Morgan Co OH.

        Elias Ellis [E1b7f], son of John Ellis Sr and Sarah Blackmer of Barnard, VT, was born 9 December 1792 at Barnard, Windsor Co VT. He was married at Barnard by Pastor Joel Davis to Laura Woods of Barnard on 23 March 1820. He and his wife were living between his father John Ellis and his older brother John Ellis Jr in 1820, and Elias was engaged in commerce then. In 1830 he was still living in the Barnard area, in a neighborhood where many of his siblings and parents lived. Elias’ wife Laura was born at Barnard about 1793, daughter of Paul Woods and Polly _____, and died 8 February 1845.

        a.     Mary D Ellis, b 1859. She was a school teacher in 1880 and lived with her parents at Springfield, Hampden Co MA. (8rs) (54,2jk,8s)

2.     Marshall M Ellis, b 1823 at Bethel, married Mary Jane Jones about 1850 and lived at Springfield, Hampden Co MA in 1870. Mary was born in VT in 1827, and died 12 July 1899.

        c.     Emma E Ellis, b 1855. She was a dress maker in 1880. (8rs) (54,2jk,8rsc) (54, 2ehimjkdc)


        Elizabeth Ellis [E1b4], daughter of John Ellis and Elizabeth Coomer, was born 12 December 1751 at Middleboro, Plymouth Co MA. She married Ebenezer Bennett Jr on 19 October 1769 at Middleboro. He was born 31 January 1747 at Middleboro, son of Ebenezer Bennett and Esther Tomson, and died at Middleboro on 10 November 1778. During his short life with Elizabeth, she and Ebenezer had four children, all probably born at Middleboro-

a.     Ezra Bennett, b 1769 (W)

b.     Lydia Bennett, b 1769 (W)

c.     Ebenezer Bennett, b 31 Oct 1770. He married Jerusha Vaughn on 7 March 1790. (W)

        Ephraim Ellis [E1b8], son of John Ellis and Elizabeth Coomer, was born 14 June 1765 at Middleboro, Plymouth Co MA. In the mid-1780s he moved north to Woodstock, VT (as did his brother John, and their uncles Charles and Thomas). He married Sarah Fellows on 27 November 1788 at Woodstock, Windsor Co VT. Sarah was born 12 April 1772 at Stonington, New London Co CT, daughter of Samuel Fellows and Mary Udall. Ephraim and most of his family moved to OH where he remained for the rest of his life. In 1840 he was at Roxbury, Washington Co, was age 76 in the census, and was receiving a military pension for Revolutionary War service. He died on 11 March 1849 in Roxbury Twp in Washington Co MAP-SoEastOH1847) and was buried in Ellis Cemetery about 5 miles southwest of Stockport, and 1 mile north of Chesterhill, Morgan Co (these two towns are 7 miles apart). Sarah died 23 April 1847 at Roxbury, Washington Co OH, and was buried with Ephraim. His gravestone reads "IN MEMORY OF EPHRAIM ELLIS REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE MAR. 11, 1849 AGE 83 YS 8 MS 26 DS."

        Since the pre-1850 census records only show the names of the head of the household, and not the children, then it often happens that children born in the 1820s or before and who marry and leave home in the 1840s, cannot be easily placed with their parents when the 1850 census is checked. But in Athens Co OH in 1840, there were just three Ellis families, all from children of Ephraim’s and Sarah’s sons John, Joel, or Levi. Joel died about 1849, so any adult children nearby and not identified with either Levi or John, then were probably Joel’s children.

        Sarah and Ephraim had thirteen children, all born at Woodstock in Windsor Co VT-

a.     Levi Ellis [E1b8a], b 16 Sep 1789

b.     Susannah Ellis, b 19 Mar 1791, probably married in the 1810s and they lived with her parents at Bristol, Morgan Co OH soon after marriage. (W,C,14i)

i.      Thomas Jefferson Ellis, b 7 Apr 1808 at Woodstock, Windsor Co VT, died on 15 October 1855 in Morgan Co OH. He was buried in Tabor Cemetery at Stockport, Morgan Co. He married Harriet Green on 26 April 1832 in Washington Co OH. She was born in 1812 in OH, probably a daughter of Robert Green (age 61) who lived next door in 1850. In 1840 they lived a few doors from his brother Moses at Roxbury, Washington Co OH, and had two children by then, born in Washington Co. In 1850 they lived at Marion, Morgan Co and had two more children-

m.    Martha Ellis[E1b8km, b abt 1817

n.     Samuel Ellis, b c1820 at Woodstock, Windsor Co VT after the summer census. (C,14i, 34k)

Although the Revolutionary War started in 1775, when Ephraim was age 10, this war lasted until 1783. So Ephraim was of age to have fought in the middle and ending of the war.

There was a teenage girl in their home in 1840, born 1826-1830. She was perhaps a granddaughter. Living nearby in 1840 was Martha Ellis. She must have been a widow. age about 35. She had a daughter born in the early 1830s in her home. (C,34k)


        Ephraim L Ellis [E1b8d8], son of Alfred Ellis and Sarah Lane, was born 5 April 1840 in Morgan Co OH. He married Celesta Johnson on 22 May 1864. She was born 27 October 1841 in OH, daughter of Joseph Johnson and Matilda Nott. Celesta was born in 1841 per all census records, but born 1847 per 1900 census, in OH. She must have been a daughter of a close friend since Celestia lived with Ephraim’s parents for years before she married Ephraim. They lived at Windsor, Morgan Co in 1870, two doors from his father. In 1920 they were at Watertown, Washington Co, and next door was their son Alfred E Ellis. Ephraim died 6 February 1920 at Watertown, Washington Co; Alfred Ellis of Waterton was the informant for his death certificate. Ephraim was buried in Center Memorial Church Cemetery.

Perhaps she was in her parents’ home, about to give birth (check the birth date of their eldest son). This was apparently Alfred’s second marriage; the marriage record of Ephraim Ellis, the teenage boy living with Alfred and Carrie in 1910, shows that this Ephraim’s parents were Alfred Ellis and Elizabeth Jarnall; no marriage record between Alfred and Elizabeth was found. In 1910 Alfred, Carrie, and his the three sons all lived next to his parents at Watertown in Washington Co. Carrie was born at Palmer, Washington Co on 4 September 1881, daughter of William L Carter and Mary M Tempie. Carrie and Alfred had two sons by 1910, and with Elizabeth Jarnall he had one-

He married Elizabeth Eddleblute on 29 November 1821 in Washington Co OH. She was born 6 November 1803 at Roxbury, Henderson Co IL (born in PA per 1850 census, parents born in Holland and Ireland per 1880 census), and died 18 February 1884 in Morgan Co. She was buried in Ellis Cemetery about 5 miles southwest of Stockport, Morgan Co. In 1880 she lived with her son Francis Marion. In 1850 their neighbor was his nephew Lorenzo Ellis [E1b8a2]. Isaac died 12 December 1874 in Morgan Co and was buried in Ellis Cemetery with Isaac. His gravestone incorrectly has an 1800 birth date; he fought in the War of 1812, so a birth date would be unlikely. They had twelve children; three of the daughters married Wallace husbands-

THE DAILY EUGENE GUARD

Lane County, Oregon, September 9, 1909

JOHN W. NETTLETON KILLED AT

 B. K. MILL AT SPRINGFIELD

John W. Nettleton, of Springfield was killed this morning at the B. K. sawmill, when his Jumper caught and wound him around a shaft under which he was working, whirling him against the ceiling and heavy timbers, tearing him to pieces. The accident, which is the most horrible in the history of the mill, occurred a few minutes before 9. Nettleton's position in the mill was on the transfer between the first and second saws.

He manipulated several levers which raise and lower a set of rollers, which this morning did not work well. He had evidently gone beneath the floor to adjust these, for when a few minutes Fireman Frank Lenhart came by he noticed his absence, and seeing the work piled up stepped over there and started to work the lever. At this point he heard a tremendous thumping, and went under the mill to see what was wrong. Seeing the whirling object on the shaft, which was revolving at 400 R.P.M. he ran to stop the engines, scarcely realizing that the object was a human being. As soon as the shaft stopped the men made their way to where Nettleton's lifeless body was hanging.

It Was a most gruesome sight. The body bore the resemblance of one mass of flesh wound around the shaft.

Mr. Nettleton worked in the plant since it started seven years ago.

At the time of the accident Mr. Nettleton's family were all at the Yarnell hop yard on the Mohawk. Word was sent them and they arrived about noon. (N,120r, KSr, 60s,148u,149v)g.Iona Ellis, b Feb 1866 in Meigs Co OH, died in 1925 at LaSalle, IL. (W,120r, Ksr, 60s)

        John Ellis [E1b], son of Joel Ellis and Elizabeth Churchill, was born 18 September 1714 at Plympton, Plymouth Co MA. He died on 6 September 1779 at Middleboro, Plymouth Co. John married Elizabeth Coomer on 1 May 1740 at Plympton. She was born at Kingston, Plymouth Co, daughter of William Croomer and Joanna Comer. John and Elizabeth had nine children, all born at Middleboro-

        John Ellis [E1b7], son of John Ellis and Elizabeth Coomer, was born 3 October 1759 at Middleboro, MA. (John Jr was age 26-44 in 1800; age 45 and older in 1810 & 1820; age 70-79 in 1830; age 81 in 1840; and age 92 in 1850). According to his descendant Mary Elizabeth Ellis (born in 1883), John died in 1777 at the Battle of Bennington Vermont in the Revolution, but this is not likely since he lived to 15 September 1858. John was buried in the town cemetery. His gravestone incorrectly says “John Ellis. Died Sept. 15, 1858, AE 100 y’rs. He lived to see the last respects paid to his associates, in the revolution.” In 1840 in Windsor Co, where John had been living for forty or more years, he was shown receiving a military pension from the Revolution, and living with his son John Young. Mary E Ellis also said that this branch of the Ellis family came from Hampshire, England. His wife was about the same ages as John. John married twice. His first wife was Sarah Blackmer, daughter of William Blackmer and Lydia Record. They married at Woodstock on 9 May 1782. Sarah was born at Ware, MA on 2 January 1763, lived at Barnard just before she married, and died at Barnard on 1 April 1816. John then married at Barnard on 6 September 1818 to widow Anna Converse of Stockbridge. She was born about 1765, and died at Barnard on 25 May 1861; in 1860 she was age 90, living with her step-son Charles at Barnard. In 1850 both John and Anna lived with son Charles and Charles’ wife Ruth, at Barnard. Sarah was the mother of his children.

        In 1790 there were only four John Ellis men in Vermont: none at Barnard, although probable cousins Joseph and Steven were living at Barnard. There was a John Ellis at Chester, in the southern end of Windsor Co; at Brattleboro was a John in Windham Co; at Rockingham, Windham Co (just south of Windsor Co) there was a John Ellis; and at Woodstock in Windsor Co there was a John Ellis. (There were also seven other Ellis families at Woodstock; Woodstock had the largest settlement of Ellis families in Vermont in 1790). (MAP-VT&MA) Of these four men, all four had a son, daughter, and a wife. Since two of the Ellis families at Woodstock (ten miles southeast of Barnard) were Charles Ellis families, our ancestor’s name, perhaps the John Ellis at Woodstock in 1790 is this one. John and Sarah had a dozen children-

a.     Mary Ellis, b 1783 (W)

b.     John Ellis Jr, b 1784 at Barnard, died at Barnard in 1864. He was still unmarried in 1810, living next door to his father, according to the census record. John married at Barnard on 30 August 1809 Sarah Wright, daughter of Thomas Martin Wright and Elizabeth Newton. Sarah was born in MA on 15 February 1783, and died at Barnard on 8 April 1866. John was a money lender in town, and was a farmer in 1850 and in 1860. They lived at the mouth of Pond Brook where it meets Locus Creek at Barnard. Their children were all born at Barnard-

        1.     Jonathan Ellis

        3.     son Ellis, b 30 Aug 1813, lived one day. (54,2d)

        Levi Ellis [E1b8a], son of Ephraim Ellis and Sarah Fellows, was born 16 September 1789 at Woodstock in Windsor Co VT. He married Lucy Gibbs. She was born 11 June 1794 at Wareham, Pymouth Co MA, daughter of Joshua Gibbs and Lucy Muxham. In 1820 they lived three doors from his father near Bristol in Morgan Co OH. In 1840 there was a Levi Ellis in Morgan Co, living next door to Alva Ellis. This Levi was then aged in the 60s (born 1770s), and he had no wife, but did have a teenaged daughter in his home. The only other Levi Ellis in OH in 1840 was in Fayette Co; that Levi was born between 1801 and 1810, and there were other Ellis families close by.

        There were only three Ellis families in Athens Co OH in 1840: J Ellis (John Ellis, census page 377), born 1810s and with a wife and three sons; Joel Ellis (page 377 and next door to J H Hopkins), born 1800s with a wife and two sons and three daughters; and “Levie Ellis” (page 377), born 1780s, a wife born in the 1790s, six sons, and one daughter born 1831-1835 (Lucinda). Of the sons, one was born 1810s (Lorenzo), one born 1826-1830 (Lysander), two born 1831-1835 (Lafayette and Levi), and one born 1836-1840 (Lyman). Since we know of nine children, then three are missing from the 1840 census: the first born daughter who died about 1830; Lovisa who died in 1825; and Laurina who had married in 1839 and was living under her husband’s name in 1840. The other two Ellis families who lived bearby in 1840 are no doubt Levi’s younger brothers.

In 1860 Levi and Mary lived at Maine, Linn Co IA and remained there into the 1880s. She must have died in the early 1900s because Levi married Mrs Esther A (Balderson) Doan on 8 November 1904 at Springville, Linn Co and they lived at Brown, Linn Co. This was also her second marriage; she was born in OH in 1844, daughter of Joseph Balderson and Debra King. He and Mary had at least seven children, all born in IA-

        Mariah Ellis [E1b8d5], daughter of Alfred Ellis and Sarah Lane, was born 6 January 1833 in Washington Co OH. She married William Birdsell in Linn Co IA on 5 April 1857. He was born 24 November 1832 at Mariette, Washington Co OH, son of Abram Birdsell. Apparently William’s father Abram died in the early 1840s and left his five children to be raised by Abram’s parents Martin Birdsell and Mary _____. Abram was the only Birdsell man (of two) in Washington Co in 1840 who had a son of William’s age in his home. Furthermore, the other younger children living with Martin Birdsell in 1850, who were too young to be children of Martin’s wife Mary, also fit the ages of the five children shown in Abram’s family in the 1840 census, with the exception of the two eldest daughters; these two girls likely married by the end of 1840.

        Mary Ellis [E1b8j], daughter of Ephraim Ellis and Sarah Fellows, was born in 1813 at Woodstock in Windsor Co VT. She married John Joy on 13 November 1834 in Washington Co OH. John was born in OH in 1812, probably a son of John Joy (Sr) who was living a few doors away in 1840, in Athens Co OH. In 1840 thru 1860 John and Mary lived at Homer, Morgan Co. They moved to Jefferson, Jackson Co KS in the 1860s, and in their home then was their 24 year old son Joseph, and Frances Joy, their granddaughter, who was born in OH.

        Mary Jane Ellis [E1b7k2b], daughter of Charles W Ellis and Mary Elizabeth Ellis, was born in June 1850 at Williamstown, MA (age 43 on 16 Feb 1892, 50 on 1 Jun 1900). She married John Cashman at Austin, Steele Co MN on 24 June 1872 in an Episcopal church. He was born in Essex Co NY on 6 March 1831, son of Patrick Cashman and Eleanor Adsit, and died 6 May 1883 at Ellenburg, Clinton Co NY. Mary Jane (picture) was his third wife. They lived at Austin, MN in 1880, but were not found in MN in the 1885 state census, nor in nearby states in 1900. Mary married Franklin Leslie Lloyd (picture) after John Cashman died, and they lived at Ellenburg, Clinton Co NY in 1900. In 1880 John Cashman was a farmer in Steele Co, at Aurora. In 1900 Mary and her new husband Franklin claimed they had been married 30 and 50 years prior, but that must have been for their first marriages. Franklin was born 12 February 1824 at Rutland, VT (age 35 in 1860, 46 in 1870, 56 in 1880, 67 in 1892, 66 in 1900), son of James Lloyd and Mrs Polly Ide Gould, and died between 1900 and 1905 at Ellenburg. Franklin’s mother died when Franklin was four hours old, and his father then gave Franklin to Edward Carpenter and his wife of Ira, Rutland Co VT, a carpenter by trade as well as by name, who brought Franklin to Ellenburg about two years later. Until he was seventeen years old, Franklin lived with his adopted father on the farm. He acquired a good practical common school education. It was Mr Carpenter's desire that Franklin should learn carpentry; but from the time he was twelve years old his mind had been fixed on blacksmithing.

        Soon after his mother's death he was separated from his brothers and sisters, and he had no knowledge of them or his parents until he was a young man. When eighteen years of age, after serving a year training at the blacksmith forge, Mr Lloyd determined to visit his original father, and thus gratify one of his most earnest desires. On arriving at his father's home in the town of Bolton in March 1846, he spent the first night incognito, although his half-sister, who had never seen him, said at once that he was her brother. Franklin, however, put her off with some plausible excuse regarding his identity and business, and passed the night as a stranger. The next day he was compelled to own up to his bright sister that he was her brother, which greatly pleased his venerable father. When the first joy of again meeting after so many years was over, the father remarked how strange it was that he should have given the babe to a carpenter by name and trade, and that Franklin had turned out a blacksmith, adding, "Well, I see now how it is; for your grandfather was a fine workman at the forge near London."

        Two years later Franklin L Lloyd was married, and soon after came to Ellenburg, and set up for himself in the shop where he learned his trade. He first married on Christmas Day, 1844, at Mooers, NY, to Miss Cornelia S Hall, who was a native of Isle La Motte, and two years his senior. She was a daughter of James Hall, a farmer and shoemaker. Nine children were born of this marriage, seven of whom grew to maturity. In April 1855, Franklin moved to Grouse, Kane Co IL, but a year later returned to Ellenburg. In April, 1865, just before the assassination of President Lincoln, he went to Chickasaw Co IA, and bought six building lots, erected a shop, and there engaged in working at his trade. At the expiration of a year he again returned to Ellenburg, where he has engaged in building to some extent, having erected seven blacksmith shops, eight barns, and seven houses. He has also built a barn on his farm in Mooers. He now (1895) owns his home here, and works at blacksmithing. Franklin’s wife Cornelia died 31 May 1883, aged sixty-two years. A year and a half later, “in October 1884, Franklin was again married, to Mrs Mary Cashman, a daughter of Charles Ellis, of Minnesota.” Franklin had eight children from his first marriage.

        In 1905, “Mary Lloyd” and her son “Wesley Cashman” lived at Ellenburg (1905 state census), but without Franklin. Also in Mary’s home in 1905 was “step-son” Lemor Lloyd, age 50, who was a blacksmith. Mary probaby died before 1910, but after March 30, 1907. From the Plattsburgh Daily Press of 30 March 1907: “Mrs. Franklin Lloyd and son Wesley left for the west this week. They will be with relatives.” ... “Mrs. J. Welch has rented the Lloyd house and is moving in.” Mary had three children with John, and two with Franklin who died as infants-

2.     Laura Mae Cashman, b 1877 in the Dakota Territory. She married a doctor and lived in TN. (picture) (ME,20s)

3.     Wesley J Cashman, b 1878 in MN. (20s,NYu)

4.     Elvie Lloyd, b 15 Dec 1885, died on 8 June 1888 at Ellenburgh. Her obit said “At Ellenburgh Centre, June 8,1888, ELVIE, daughter of Franklin and Mary Lloyd, aged two years, 5 months and 24 days.” (N,116u)

5.     Mary, Lloyd, died on 21 May 1888 as an infant. Her obit said “In Ellenburgh, May 21, 1888, of diphtheria, an infant daughter of Franklin Lloyd.” (N,116u)

John Cashman’s first marriage, with Frances Z Annis on 15 Apr 1857 at Barndon, VT, produced two children, born in NY: Leonard William Cashman, born in 1856, and Herbert Byron Cashman, born in 1858. John’s second marriage was with Abigail C Thomas on 18 Sep 1870 in Steele Co MN. She died at Blooming Prairie in 1871, probably with the birth of her son Charles William Cashman on 13 Oct 1871.

He spent the majority of his childhood at Bakersfield, and is a college graduate with degrees in Psychology and Electrical Engineering, and a masters degree in Applied Mathematics.

        When Matt was about age 13, his mother married Bob Robertson from San Rafael, CA (north of San Francisco). His mother thought Matt could benefit from summer school math classes at the military academy where her new husband was a teacher, so for the summer just before Matt was to enter the 8th grade, he was entered into summer school at Mr Robertson's school. But that school had no math classes available for Matt's abilities. Instead, Mr Robertson arranged for Matt to attend the local city college and take calculus. He would have to ride across town on the public bus for this. Matt arrived the day before classes were to begin, in order to enroll, and the college's office sent Matt to the math teacher's class room in order to get Matt assigned to that class. When Matt arrived, he introduced himself and showed his necessary acceptance for summer classes. Then Matt asked the teacher if he could just take the exam for the first semester, right then. The teacher explained that if he did that, he would get the grade he received on the exam, with no chance to erase a bad grade by actually taking the class later. Matt said "Ok" and took the teacher's exam. He received an A grade. Then when the teacher told him the grade, Matt asked if he could then take the next exam, for the next semester of calculus. The teacher, now amazed at this 13 year old middle school boy, quickly made up an exam for the 2nd semester of calculus, and Matt took that exam. After his second A grade, Matt then went back to the military academy and told his mother that he didn't need to go across town for school that summer. Years later, Matt was the mathematician to help design President Reagan's "Star Wars" anti-missile program, which helped end the Cold War with Russia. In addition, when home computers were first starting to be popular and connect to the internet, Matt was the programmer who wrote the first programs to allow browsing the Internet.

        Matt married Xun-Xun "Sunny" Chen on 14 August 1977 at Fresno. They met while attending the University at Fresno. Sunny was born 28 August 1948 at Taichung, Taiwan, daughter of Ching-Chung Chen and Yeh-Kwei Yang.
