Obituary: "Ansel Mills - at his residence in Pamelia, July 6th, at the advanced age of 75 years and 10 months, an inhabitant of the town for forty-six years."

Biography: "Ansel Mills, a native of Connecticut, came to Watertown in 1806, and subsequently, about 1824, purchased a tract of land in this town, on road 21. In 1816 he married Betsey Ripley, by whom he had six children, viz.: Amanda, Hiram, Mary Ann, Louisa, David, and William. His son, Hiram, now owns the greater part of the homestead farm. Hiram married Malinda Seeber, of Brownville, by whom he had 13 children -- eight sons and five daughters. One son, Milton P., married Jennie Fikes, of Le Ray, and they have one son, Roy E. William Mills married Catharine Nellis, and they have three children -- Ansel, Dexter, and Water [sic] B. The latter works the farm which his father has occupied for so many years. He married Ella Gray, and by her has had seven children, one of whom died in infancy, and four sons and two daughters survive, viz.: Ethel, William, Frank, Clark, Daisy, and Roy." --Child's Gazatteer of Jefferson Co., New York (1905).
