Death of Dr. Ellis.
Dr. Hamilton Elmore Ellis was taken sick with catarrahal pneumonia Friday evening. Dr. Smythe was called, and he appeared to grow better, and on Sunday and Monday was thought to be out of danger. Monday night he became suddely worse, and continued so until Wednesday morning at 1 o'clock, when he died.
Dr. Ellis was born in Tennessee in October, 1826, and removed with his parents to this county when a boy. His youth and early manhood was spent in Floyd township. He studied medicine with Dr. William Long, at New Maysville, afterward graduating from the Ohio Medical College and from the medical department of the University of New York City. He first practiced his profession in Owen county, where he remained for about a year. He then returned to New Maysville and formed a partnership with his former preceptor. He married a daughter of William Collings of that vicinity. In 1859 he moved to this city, and has since resided here. He was for about six months during the war surgeon of the 43th Indiana Infantry, but ill health compelled him to resign. During the past year he was granted a pension, receiving altogether about $3,000. After locating here he formed a partnership with Dr. G. C. Smythe, which continued until quite recently, covering a period of fifteen years. During all that time no difficulty ever arose between them. This was a good illustration of his character, his leading characteristic being honesty and a disposition to do right. There was no deception about him. For many years he had been a leading member in the Baptist church. During twelve or fourteen years he had been a victim of hay fever, lasting about two months each year. He sought relief annually from these attacks by visiting Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado and Kansas, and while absent always escaped the disease. It was this disease which really laid the foundation for the final attack which caused his death. The funeral takes place this afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Elder J. R. Edwards and Dr. E. W. Fisk. Court adjourned this morning in honor of the deceased.
