About Pvt. William C. Ellis, (USA)

Civil War pension records list William C. Ellis as 5'7", light complexion, blue eyes, dark brown hair. He was a private, wagonmaster from May 26, 1862 to September 20, 1862, enrolled at Columbus, Ohio.

Lewis J. Ellis wrote for William's Civil War pension application, "I was acquainted with William C. Ellis. . . . I knew of him from his boyhood. At the age of 19 years he married his first wife whose maiden name was Elizabeth Newman. . . . That marriage was dissolved by the death of his wife in the year 1853. He remained a widower until he married Abigail R. Munday, with whom he lived continuously until his death in last January 1904. I am acquainted with the above facts because his father married my sister for his second wife while William C. Ellis was a small boy and they lived within four miles of my own residence."
