“OLIVER E. ELLSWORTH, saw-mill; Hinckley, was born in Vermont in 1833. He is the son of Walter and Ruth (Peckham) Ellsworth, natives of Vermont, and who came to Ohio in 1836. They first located in Royalton, Cuyahoga Co., on the township line joining Hinckley. In 1852, they came to Hinckley Township, and settled upon the farm where they now reside. They have had ten children—Melinda, a widow, now living in Michigan; William, who died in Royalton, aged 23 years; Oliver E., the subject of this sketch; Rhoda, living at home; Z. W., now working the old homestead; Ruth, married and living in Cleveland; Dela, married and residing in Cuyahoga County; J. P., now living at home; Chancy, living in Cuyahoga County, and Frank, living in Cleveland. Oliver has been a resident of the township since his parents’ removal there. He was married in 1858 to Miss Rosetta Keyes; she died in February, 1861, leaving one child, Fred W. He was married to his second wife, A. E. Edgerton, Oct. 1, 1865. They have four children – Elmer C, George L., Rosa R. and Lillie. Mr. Ellsworth enlisted Aug. 12, 1862, in Company A, 124th 0. V. I., and served nearly three years. This regiment was in active service, and he passed through some of the most severe battles of the war, going through the whole Atlanta campaign, and escaping unhurt. He received his discharge June 9,1865, and returned to Hinckley. Previous to going to the war, he built a saw-mill upon his land, and, since his return, has been operating it. His property is located in the northeastern part of Hinckley Township, and consists of 8 acres of land with the mill property.”
