Obituary

David C. Ellis, 71, died at his home on Chestnut street Tuesday morning after an illness of several weeks. Rev. F. E. Marble officiated at the funeral, which was held yesterday from the house. Mr. Ellis was a native of Richmond, N.H. coming to Brattleboro in 1861. Since then he had always lived here, having worked as a teamster. He was first employed by Lindrey & Knowlton and afterwards worked for E. E. Stockwell. For the last few years, he had worked in the livery stables of L. S. Higgins and H. R. Brown. Mr. Ellis married Emeline Gilbert of Northumberland Falls, N. H., in 1848, and they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last February at their Chestnut street home. Besides a widow Mr. Ellis leaves three children, George and Frank of this town and Mrs. Sarah A. Morey of Amherst, Mass.
