Reuben A. Ellis

Lamoille Newsdealer: JAN. 24, 1862

DEATH OF REUBEN A. ELLIS - THE FOLLOWING HAS BEEN RECEIVED BY THE POSTMASTER AT MORRISTOWN.

YOUNG ELLIS WAS A SON F. NATHAN ELLIS OF MORRISTOWN.

P.M. Dear Sir, -- Have just received a letter from my brother, who was taken a prisoner of war at the Battle of Balls Bluff Oct. 21. He says of the prisoners who have died, there is one from our Company G, Grafton, Massachusetts, R.A. Ellis of Morristown, Vt., who died Sunday, Dec. 15th, of measles. He said "I attended him closlely all through his sickness, which was six days duration. The measles did not come out good. Not knowing but that he might have friends in that place who would be glad to know that he was kindly cared for by Sargeant J. P. Stowe of Massachusetts, in his last sickness, and not knowing whether they (his friends, if any such they are) have learned of his decease, I write you that you may inform them of the particulars, in the manner which you see best.

Yours Respectfully,

S.E. Stowe

P.S, They were confined to a tobacco warehouse in Richmond, Va. at the time of his death.
