Jonathan ELLIS
November 4, 1875
Clinton Public

Jonathan ELLIS, an old citizen of this county, died at Waynesville, on last Thursday [Oct. 28], in the seventy-first year of his age. About five weeks ago, Mr. Ellis went into the pasture lot with a basketful of corn to feed some stock, when a yearling calf jumped upon him and threw him to the ground. In the fall, Mr. Ellis had two ribs broken, besides receiving severe internal injuries. Some days after the accident, Mr. Ellis began to vomit blood, when pneumonia set in, which finally resulted in his death. Up to the time of the accident, Mr. Ellis was hale and hearty for a man of his years. He leaves an aged widow and five children. The deceased had been a resident of this county for thirty-eight years.
