From 'Richard Ellis and his Descendants, 1888'.

The ninth and youngest child of Richard Ellis, it is not probable that hewas born in Ashfield for at the time of his birth the settlers of thattown had gone to the older settlements, to avoid the Indians during theperiod of the French and Indian war. However this may be, it is evidentthat he was with his father in Colrain early in his life, and on the 24thof January 1777, at which date his name is found in his father's books.

He joined the Revolutionary army, in which he served several campaigns.He was under Generals Gates and Ethan Allen at Lake Champlain,Ticonderoga and when Burgoyne surrendered. He served through most of theRevolutionary War. About 1799 he married Mary Couch and, it is said,lived for some time in Vermont. He next moved to Oneida County, NewYork, near Litchfield, and in 1795 he settled permanently in JeffersonCounty, New York, at a place which was named after him, Ellisburg. Hepurchased 500 acres of land and built a grist mill. This was his homeuntil his death in 1813. He probably learned the milling business fromhis father. It is evident that he was a man of industry, courage, andperseverance, for it requires all these qualities to succeed in so wildand remote a region as Jefferson County was when he settled there. Herehe raised his family of eleven children, and quite a number of hisdescendants now reside there and at Belleville, in the same county (1888)
