FROM ANOTHER SOURCE:

Of Speedy's son German Ellsworth, Jr. is written:

"As a youth German was unusually alert and vigorous ... tall and straight, slightly under six feet, with abundant dark hair, blue eyes, and full beard (he was a very handsome man, from his picture in the book OUR ELLSWORTH ANCESTORS). He was quick and powerful in action. Every stroke of his saw or hammer was thrust with a set jaw and backed by all of his strength ... few men could fell a tree or score a tie as quickly as he. He taught his (carpenter's) trade to his sons; however, their movements and actions were tempered by the even (slow and steady) disposition of their (Swedish) mother."

Another of Speedy's sons, Ephraim Edgar Ellsworth, was "six feet and three inches tall, and dark complexioned (with thick dark hair and beard)". The Johnson children were also tall and dark, and similarly quick in movement and action. This trait they inherited from their mother, "Speedy". Many descendants of both the Ellsworth and Johnson children were given the names Philo and Speedy, either as first or middle names, showing how much they revered them as parents and grandparents.
