Misc. Notes
Lyman Ellis grew up on the Ellis farm and attended school in Colchester. He served with the Colchester Militia under Capt. Moses Bates in the War of 1812. Before and after the war he worked in his father's lampblack factory and also learned the cooper trade. In 1820 he walked to Ohio carrying all of his possessions on his back. On 3 October 1854 Lyman applied for bounty land under the Act of 1855. His claim was disapproved on the grounds that he was not actually with Capt. Bates while the company was in Federal Service.
Lyman Ellis is reported by Harold D. Ellis, ECN Fall 1996, pg. 74 as having died on 14 November 1864.
Lyman and Annie are buried in the Wilson Family Cemetery in Peru, Ohio.
