"James M. Ellis owned a farm on Ellis Mill Road in Barren county, Kentucky in 1867-68 from Peters Creek to Ware House Road. By 1869 he had sold it to Nathan Poynter." SOURCE: ( Barren County, Kentucky Roads Rook 2" compiled by Sandra K. Gorin, Gorin Genealogical Publishing, August 1994.)

James and Sarah Greer Ellis are buried in the Ellis Cemetery on the old John and Elizabeth Chapman Ellis farm. By the latter part of the 1900s, thirty tombstones were able to be found and read, and the farm was owned by Kenneth Mattingly.
