Obituary

In Hotel Rockingham Friday the body of William H. Ellis, 80, was found in his room, death evidently having occurred several hours earlier of heart disease. Mr. Ellis for many years lived near Minard's pond and several years later lived in the family of John Davidson on the back road between Saxtons River and Westminster. He was an old soldier and a member of the G.A.R.
