Death of William T. Ellis

William Thomas Ellis, 67, died at 1 o’clock Wednesday afternoon at his home of brain trouble. Mr. Ellis sustained a fall last December from which he did not recover, although he was confined to his bed only two weeks. He was born in West Brattleboro December 19, 1843, son of Willsha and Cynthia (Hall) Ellis. He was educated in the public schools of Brattleboro. He enlisted August 28, 1862, in Co. B of the 16th Vermont regiment and was mustered out the following year. He took part in the battle of Gettysburg and several other large conflicts. He married Ellen P. Reed of Brattleboro, October 10, 1888, who survives him with five children, Mrs. C. A. Brackett, Louis F. Ellis, Carlos W. Ellis and Mrs. E. H. Tudor, all of Brattleboro, and Mrs. J. Springer of Boston. His mother, Mrs. Cynthia Ellis, also survives him. Mr. Ellis was a carpenter. He was a member of the Sedgwick Grand army post and Wantastiquet lodge of Odd Fellows of Brattleboro. The funeral will be held at the house today at 2 p.m. Rev. Delmar E. Trout, pastor of the Universalist church, will officiate, and the body will be placed in the receiving vault at Meeting House cemetery.
