David Ellis is the son of Benjamin Ellis and Sarah Copeland Ellis,

David first married Sarah Elizabeth McGarvin in 1831 in Montgomery co., Missouri. Sarah died in 1842 shortly after the birth of their son, Benjamin Asa Ellis. David then married second to Frances (Fannie) Ellis, his first cousin, sometime after 1845.

David Ellis was in Pulaski county, Missouri near his parents in the 1830 and 1840 census, but lived in Montgomery county following his first marriage.

David Ellis is found at the time of the 1840 U.S. Census for Pulaski county, Missouri. He has 1 male, age 20-30 (himself), and two males under the age of five. One female age 20-30, two females, age 5-10 and one female under the age of five years.

David Ellis entered the following original land grants in Montgomery county, Missouri: October 11, 1832 - NE 1/4 of NW 1/4 of Section 10 -Twp. 46-R-5-#3295 and October 20, 1849-NE 1/4 of NW 1/4 of Section 8 -Twp. 46-R-5.

David Ellis, age 39, was found in District 61 Being, Montgomery county, Missouri at the time of the 1850 U.S. Census, apparently a widower living with five of his children. He was farming with real estate valued at $420.00.

David died at the age of 43. Mary Lou Ellis Wright states that David Ellis is buried at Big Spring , Missouri on the Ellis farm. There is a stone there that clearly shows his death date. It was also seen by Mary Hartman of the Montgomery county Historical Society in 1992. The farm is located NW 1/4 of NW 1/4 of Section 8, township 46-RS.

A Montgomery County, Missouri Cemetery listing stated that David Ellis was buried in the "Ellis Burial" ground.
