Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1735
Death: Jun. 23, 1828

Descendants of the family of James Ellis and Margaret Peggy Hopper operated a ferry across the Broad River between Shelby and Gaffney, South Carolina.

A large two-story white frame house, known as the "Ellis House", and later as the "Gramling House" was built just across the river, and was used as a stop-over for river and stage coach travelers.

The house is still standing and is on the historical register.
