subject of the above sketch was born in the town of Verona, Oneida County, in
this state, November 27, 1802, where he resided with his parents until he was
fourteen years old, when he went to Rome, Oneida County and lived one year with
his uncle, Stephen White. In the winter of 1817 1818 he came with his father's
family to this town, locating near Cheshire. From that time until he was twenty
years old he worked with his father at the carpenter trade. At the age of
twenty, having bought the last year of his minority of his father, he commenced
business on his own account as a building contractor.
1828, having previously married, he moved into this village, and for many years
was known as one of the most prominent business men of the place. In early life
not withstanding his limited means for obtaining an education, he qualified
himself to teach a common school, and was thus engaged for four winters, when it
was the custom to board around and when 2 dollars per month was considered ample
compensation for the services rendered. He was also elected School Inspector and
served in that capacity for a number of years. Captain Ellis was married
in 1826 to Miss Ruth Atwell, with whom he has lived lovingly and happily
for more than half a century.
derived his military title from a Captain's commission bearing the signature of
Gov. DeWitt Clinton. In politics, Capt. Ellis was first an Anti
Mason, then a Whig, and finally a Republican. He was always active in the
support of his political views, and it was at one time said of him by the late Nicholas
G. Cheseboro, that he had more influence and controlled more votes than any
other man in the county.
Ellis was an honest man and good citizen, a kind husband and father, and an
obliging neighbor. He was a member of the Presbyterian church, and sustained the
character of a sincere, consistent Christian. He was the father of eleven
children. Of these only five remain, four men and one daughter, who with their
aged mother mourn his loss.

Eugene Albion Ellis, of the 13th United States Calvary, died Friday at the
Army and Navy hospital in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he had been receiving
medical treatment for Bright's disease since November. Failing eyesight
compelled Major Ellis to leave Cuba last August and to come to New York,
where physicians discovered that he was suffering from the dread disease.
He then obtained a four month's sick leave, and accompanied by his wife
and little son, went to Hot Springs hoping to receive permanent benefit.
Ellis was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Albion Ellis, and was born
in Chapinville 46 years ago last August. In
his infancy his parents moved to this village. He was educated in the public
school and the academy. While a student at the latter institution, in 1872, he
was appointed to West Point Military academy through the influence of
Congressman William H. Lamport. He
graduated in 1876 and joined the Eighth Calvary at Fort Clark, Texas. He served
as second and first lieutenant of the Eighth Calvary.
1884 he received a detail at the West Point Military Academy in the department
of modern languages, as assistant professor of French and English.
In 1889 he joined his regiment at Fort Meade, S. D., and took part in the
Sioux Indian Campaign of 1890 91. He was promoted captain of G Troop of the
Eighth Calvary in 1892, and Feb 28, 1901, was made major of the 18th Calvary.
the Spanish war he served as post commander at Fort Niobrara, Neb., and later
went with the army of occupation to Puerto Principe, Cuba.
After serving only a few weeks there with his regiment, he was called as
collector of customs, captain of the port and American counsel at Guantanamo,
Cuba, where he was stationed when his health failed.
The career of Major Ellis had been watched with deep pride and interest by his Canandaigua friends, among whom he had grown up and with whom he had always been a favorite. His rapid promotion in the army testified to the high esteem in which he was held by his superiors.
Ellis was the author of a Dictionary of French Slang.

gold medal for the best essay on, "Discipline in the United States

At Canandaigua, July 4, 1905, Edson C. Ellis, aged 38 years.
NEWSPAPER ACCOUNT of his death.
WARNER'S VERDICT SAYS that OFFICER
FISK was ACTING
Fourth of July witnessed the ending, in a shocking manner, of a once promising
life. Apparently demented, and
acting in a most violent manner toward his family and neighbors, Edson C.
Ellis, aged 38 years, was accidentally shot by an officer who had been
called to arrest him.
story is a sad one, but not unlike others which are constantly being enacted.
Ellis had shown signs of insanity some days before, the police
had been consulted about his case, and he was under surveillance. When word came
soon after noon on Tuesday that Ellis had driven his wife, her mother and
his son from the home on North Pearl Street, known as the Gilbert place,
Officer Delbert Fisk hastened to the scene.
He found Ellis in the yard, with a pair of scissors and an axe he
threatened the life of anyone who attempted to enter.
Fisk tried to reason with the insane man, and when that failed, he
approached him for the purpose of disarming him.
started toward the officer, with axe raised, evidently intending to carry
out his threat. Then Officer
Fisk drew his revolver, intending to fire over Ellis' head and
frighten him into submission. The ball however struck in the right breast,
fractured the clavicle, and cutting through the carotid artery, causing internal
hemorrhage, from which Ellis died 20 minutes later.
to within a few years ago, deceased was a successful traveling salesman. Besides
his wife and six year old son, there survive his mother, Mrs. Sarah C. Ellis,
and one sister, Miss Caroline Ellis.
The story of the shooting was told in detail by witnesses before Coroner
F. P. Warner, at the inquest on Wednesday afternoon. That Fisk had
only intended to frighten the insane man, after patiently trying efforts to
reason with him, was clearly shown by the testimony of all witnesses.
Andrew Brady of the West Gibson street crossing, said that during the
forenoon of the day of the shooting he had ordered Ellis off the railroad
track, telling him that he was in no condition to be walking on the track.
John Engert, who lives nearby, related how Mrs. Ellis' mother Mrs.
Votaw, came to his house crying, shortly after noon saying that Ellis
had driven everyone from the house and threatened to kill anyone who entered the
premises. At her request Mr.
Engert sent one of his daughters to notify the police.
afterward went down to work in his potato patch, near the Ellis house,
and saw Ellis in the yard, acting wildly, and repeating that he would
kill the first person that set foot on the premises. Engert tried to calm him, but seeing that it
was no use, he disregarded his further threats and abuse. He said that Ellis had
a saw and a club on the lawn, and when the officer approached he went back to
where they were. He witnessed the controversy between the two men, the officer
came over to where witness was and inquired about the trouble. Then he went back, he saw Ellis with upraised axe,
heard the shot and he hastened over. Fisk asked witness to telephone for
the ambulance, which he did from the brewery office.
a previous occasion Mrs. Ellis had intimated to him that the lives of the
members of the family were in danger. Officer Delbert Fisk, being sworn,
said that he was about 25 years of age, and had been on the force 13 months. He
said that he answered a call to the Ellis place on July 4 and reached
there about 1 10 PM. As he
approached the house, Ellis got up from a chair in which he was sitting,
and shouted to Fisk not to come in, coupling with it a threat to kill him
if he did. Fisk went on in, starting for the side door, but as as
Ellis approached with the axe, he went to the front door.
found that the other members of the family were not on the premises, he tried to
calm Ellis, whom he described as a savage looking man. He wore no coat,
collar or hat, his shirt was unbuttoned, his hair disheveled and eyes bulging.
Seeing Engert across the road, Officer Fisk left the premises and
went over to inquire about the trouble. He said that he was convinced
that Ellis was a dangerous man to be at large and returned to
repeatedly asked him to put down the axe, but Ellis only drew nearer, and
when just without range of the swinging weapon, the officer began to back off
the premises. Ellis following him with upraised axe, and repeating
threats to kill him. Just before the street line was reached, Fisk
brought out his revolver in the hope of intimidating the madman. A minute later
he pointed the revolver over the man's head, and as he fired, stepped backward
down an embankment about a foot and a half, which brought the shot in range of
the victim, instead of over his head, as intended.
he shot, Ellis had the axe raised above his head, the men were five feet apart, the axe immediately dropped and
the man fell backward. He never spoke and was dead 20 minutes later. The 45
caliber bullet made a savage internal wound, as described above.
was questioned by the coroner regarding the police rules and his understanding
of his duty in dealing with violent persons. He said that he had a right to
protect his own life and that of others, and to use his revolver as a last
resort. He said that he did not fire hastily, that he anticipated trouble with Ellis,
but thought that the show of the weapon would cause him to submit to arrest.
was clear from all the testimony that the step backward down the embankment
caused the shot to take its fatal course. The
statement of Mrs. Votaw and Mrs. Ellis substantiated the testimony
of Engert and the officer. They said in substance that they considered
themselves fortunate that they were not killed. Yesterday Coroner F. P. Warner rendered the following
verdict, Edson C. Ellis came to his death at 1 10 PM on July 4 suffering
from alcoholic insanity, by being shot by Policeman Delbert Fisk when resisting
Policeman was acting under self defense, Ellis having attacked him with
an axe. The nature of this verdict doubtless ends the unfortunate affair.
The funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at the home of the
young man's mother, Mrs. Sarah C. Ellis, Charlotte street. Rev. Lewis
