From 'Richard Ellis and his Descendants, 1888'.

He was but two or three years of age when his father moved to Deerfieldand but seven or eight when he settled in Ashfield. From no accountwhich the writer can obtain does it appear with certainty what became ofMatthew or where he settled. It is known that after the death of hismother in Ashfield (then Huntstown) his father removed to Colerain, inthe same county about 15 miles north-easterly from Ashfield. He tookwith him his two youngest children, Hannah and Caleb. That Matthew alsowent with them, or was there for a time is evident from a charge found inhis father's account book and under the date of November, 1768, inaccount with 'William Clark, the first: To stoning your well 15shillings. To Matthew one day at ye well 6 shillings and sixpence.'

It is probable that Matthew Ellis was not married at this time, althoughhe was 28 years of age, for no trace of him or his descendants are foundin Colerain. Circulars of inquiry have been quite extensively sentthroughout the States, from which the following response has beenreceived from Indiana. Whether the writer is one of the descendants ofMatthew Ellis of Ashfield, has not as yet been decided but it seemsprobable that such is the case...

Letter from Reuben Ellis, Jackson, Tipton Co., Indiana, Dec. 16th, 1885.
Dear Sir: - I have before me a circular handed to my son, W. D. Ellis,making inquiries about the descendants of Richard Ellis, of Ashfield,Mass. My father's name was Eliphalet and his father was Matthew Ellis,who was, I think a son of Richard Ellis of Ashfield. My father Eliphaletwas born in 1787, and settled in Indiana, about the years1822, and diedin 1844. I have heard him speak of Ellisburg, and of his brothers Enos,Seth, and Levi, and George, born 1815, Ann, 1817, William, 1810, Enos,1821, David, 1823, Matthew, 1830, Reuben (myself) 1834, Levi, 1836, andSally, 1838.

My father, Eliphet Ellis was in the War of 1812, and was in the battle ofSackett's Harbor. I think he was born in New York or Vermont. My olderbrothers are all dead and I have no knowledge of any more distantrelatives. I will make inquiries and let you know if I learn anythingfurther.

To Dr. E. R. Ellis, Detroit, Mich.
My Aunt Sarah Fulton Franklin, of Guilford, Vermont, used to say that'Levi Ellis and one they called 'Liph' (most likely Eliphalet) were inthe battle of Sackett's Harbor, Jefferson County, NY (Mary 29, 1813).'Liph' was then living in or near Carthage, Jefferson County, NY' -Letter from Robert Fulton, Green River, Vermont, April 1886.
Jabaz Franklin, of Guilford, Vermont, now 90 years of age, who marriedSarah Fulton, of Colerain, a grand-daughter of Richard Ellis, says that'some of the Ellises moved into Vermont, but he has lost the run ofthem.' If these were related to Richard Ellis they must have beendescendants of Matthew, as all the other Ellis families are accounted for.

Note* This was taken from the BARNARD, VT. HISTORY 1928
Moses with his brother, Joseph, were the ones who came to Barnard, VT.from Walpole, MA. in 1785. Moses at age 16 settled the Ellis Farmthat is dated 1785. This is painted on the big barn. His brotherJoseph settled an adjoining farm. Until 1947 the Ellis farm had notbeen out of the family. It still goes by that name but was bought byBaron Lenis de Rothschild of the French financiers. It was a realshow place after being remodeled and landscaped. The following arenotes by R.H. Ellis: The Baron and Mrs. de Rothschild are both dead(she is buried in the cemetery at East Barnard) and the farm has beenpassed to MIT, then to a man from Texas who never lived at the farm,and now to a family named Desmond. I visited the farm around 1973 andmet the Baroness . She showed us around the house and barn andallowed us to take pictures. She shared a story about when they firstbought the farm, ' The neighbors said that now that the Baron hadpurchased the farm. He would probably paint out the Ellis name.' Shestated, 'He did precisely that and then had the name repainted withorders that as long as he had the farm the name would always stay.She also told me about a visit she had from my Uncle Bert who broughther a black walnut tree and she gave him a pine to take back to IowaFalls, IA.'
From the Book belonging to Helen Moe: 'The Rothchilds--A FamilyPortrait' by Frederic Morton Published by the Curtis Publishing Co.Copyright 1961. Page 264-265 'Then Louis returned to his spaciousfarm in East Barnard, Vermont. The New England highlands evoked theAlps. The tart reserve of the Vermonters matched his own temper well. Professors of art and botany came to visit from Dartmouth. Hisbrother, Baron Eugene (surviving today and the husband of the Englishstage star Jeanne Stuart), often came to visit from his Long Islandestate. Baroness Hilda created a beautiful garden on the grounds, aswell as something Louis had never been sure he would like: a familyhome. He liked it. In the last years of his life the Rothchild folkseven gave open-air barn dances, and the Baron do-si-do'd with the samecool grace with which he had once waltzed on Vienna parquets. Hedied, in his seventies, the way a grand seigneur should--swimming inMontego Bay, under a blue and perfect Caribbean sky'.
This next was taken from Helen Moe's family history: Also from theHISTORY OF VERMONT, received from the Vermont Chamber of Commerce:Moses Ellis was a deacon in the Christian church which had a smallfollowing in this section in the early days. About the year 1801,when the Methodist persuasion first visited the neighborhood, she(Catherine Ellis) became seriously convinced of sin in heart and life. After mourning for sin many weeks, one day, while engaged in herdomestic employments, the burden was removed and her soul was made torejoice with exceeding joy. From that time her face was set towardheaven. For more than ten years her husband was rather opposed to'experimental religion'. Experimental religion has become a habitwith descendents of this woman to the present generation.
