Birth: Sep. 18, 1839
Kennebec County
Maine, USA
Death: Feb. 28, 1920
Lenawee County
Michigan, USA

He served Co. D 6 MI Cav

Before or After the civil war he changed his name from NICHOLS to ELLCEY spelling variations ELSEY, ELSY.

When Charles Franklin NICHOLS was born on September 18, 1839, in Maine, his father, Amos, was 37 and his mother, Catherine, was 31. He in enlisted in Company G, Maine 21st Infantry Regiment on 14 Oct 1862 was prisoner of war discharged before married Emerilla Aurelia MITCHELL on June 27, 1864, in Cuyahoga, Ohio. They had 11 children in 23 years. He died on February 28, 1920, in Madison, Michigan, at the age of 80

He is buried in HUNT'S CEMETERY with his grandson's and son. Since he was living with Charles Jr and his father at the time of his death. I believe they either didn't realize he already own the plot in Advent Cemetery or didn't have the money to transfer his body there so had him buried in Hunt's. I would think he be close to Charles Jr since they died days apart.... According to old Hunt's Cemetery records there was a Stone mark Father near Clyde Spore (grandson to Charles) but has not been able to be found now. But Since there a Monument in Advent already that maybe why there not a Headstone in HUNT'S Cemetery. OR the Monument may had been purchased at a later date by another family member.
