GEORGE M. ELLIS, farmer, P. O., Higginsport, was born in Pleasant Township, March 15, 1828. He is the son of Samuel and Sally (Ellis) Ellis. Though bearing the same name before marriage, his parents were not akin to each other. He was reared to manhood in this township, gaining the education that the country schools afforded in his youth. Farming then became his life work and he now owns a desirable little farm. He is a member of the Democratic party. In 1850, he and Emily Jones, a native of Brown County, were made one by the holy bonds of matrimony, and their home has been cheered with three children — Mollie, Hattie and Albert.
