Note* Information taken from NEW ENGLAND FAMILIES--Genealogical and MemorialVolume. 1. Joseph Ellis(Ellice), probably the youngest of the Ellisbrothers who settled in Dedham and Medfield, MA. was born about 1635and doubtless came from England to live with one of his brothers. Hewas a taxpayer as early as 12-6-1659 and his name appears next to thatof Richard Ellis (Ellice) on the list in that year. He continued onthe tax list until 1671. In that year he probably died, for in theyear 1672 his widow Ruth takes his place as a taxpayer. He drew landwith Sargent Richard Ellis and Michael Metcalf, 3-23-1662/63. Thefollowing extract from the Dedham town records relates to hisappointment as schoolmaster, 'in consideration of the present want ofa schoolmaster and the weakly estate of our brother, Joseph Ellis(Ellice), he being willing and we being hopeful he may do some good inteaching some children to read English, so for the present and untilone more able may be attained; do so agree that he shall have 6s. aweek so long as he shall so teach.' (March 23, 1663/64). He receivedhis salary, amounting to 15 pounds, 12 shillings Feb. 10,1665 and madea similar contract for 1666. The records show he was paid for part ofthe year of 1666. An account of his service, similar to this, isgiven in the book 'Schools and School Teachers of Dedham.'

Note* Mom, or 'Dodie' as Granddad Adkins usually called her, was a short,heavy set, loveable lady. As a child I remember how much comfort andlove was given by this lady and how fun it was to snuggle in her armswhen I was sick or had my feelings hurt. I can't remember my motherwith any thing but white hair. I know from pictures, she had verydark hair but I was told that her hair started turning when she was 20and by the time she was 30 it was white. Her eyes were blue and shestood all of 5'3' tall. We always kidded her that she was wider thanshe was tall. Since dad was gone so much of the time, mom became thedisciplinarian, a job she was not well suited for because of her softheart. There were, however, times we felt the sting of the open handon the 'place provided by the Lord.' I also remember times when mybrothers and I would 'wrestle' with mom, Jim would hold her and Billand I would smear butter between her toes. She pretended to beoutraged but secretly, I think she enjoyed the horse play from hersons. Mom was a smoker, as was my dad, but she became a 'chainsmoker' after brother Jim was drafted to serve in WWII. This practicecontinued until one night when she quit 'cold turkey.' This came aboutafter dad had his second heart attack. It seems that one evening momsaid, she was going to town (4 miles) to get another pack ofcigarettes. Dad seemed surprised since there was a pack and a half onthe table. He expressed his doubt about needing more cigarettesbefore morning. This aroused mom's anger and she threw the remainingpack across the room and vowed she would never smoke anothercigarette. She kept this vow for the rest of her life. I marveled ather resolve, especially in view of the stress she had during the finaldays of dad's life. I have been a smoker In the past and realize justhow hard that must have been. R.H.Ellis

Note* This was taken from the BARNARD, VT. HISTORY 1928
Moses with his brother, Joseph, were the ones who came to Barnard, VT.from Walpole, MA. in 1785. Moses at age 16 settled the Ellis Farmthat is dated 1785. This is painted on the big barn. His brotherJoseph settled an adjoining farm. Until 1947 the Ellis farm had notbeen out of the family. It still goes by that name but was bought byBaron Lenis de Rothschild of the French financiers. It was a realshow place after being remodeled and landscaped. The following arenotes by R.H. Ellis: The Baron and Mrs. de Rothschild are both dead(she is buried in the cemetery at East Barnard) and the farm has beenpassed to MIT, then to a man from Texas who never lived at the farm,and now to a family named Desmond. I visited the farm around 1973 andmet the Baroness . She showed us around the house and barn andallowed us to take pictures. She shared a story about when they firstbought the farm, ' The neighbors said that now that the Baron hadpurchased the farm. He would probably paint out the Ellis name.' Shestated, 'He did precisely that and then had the name repainted withorders that as long as he had the farm the name would always stay.She also told me about a visit she had from my Uncle Bert who broughther a black walnut tree and she gave him a pine to take back to IowaFalls, IA.'
From the Book belonging to Helen Moe: 'The Rothchilds--A FamilyPortrait' by Frederic Morton Published by the Curtis Publishing Co.Copyright 1961. Page 264-265 'Then Louis returned to his spaciousfarm in East Barnard, Vermont. The New England highlands evoked theAlps. The tart reserve of the Vermonters matched his own temper well. Professors of art and botany came to visit from Dartmouth. Hisbrother, Baron Eugene (surviving today and the husband of the Englishstage star Jeanne Stuart), often came to visit from his Long Islandestate. Baroness Hilda created a beautiful garden on the grounds, aswell as something Louis had never been sure he would like: a familyhome. He liked it. In the last years of his life the Rothchild folkseven gave open-air barn dances, and the Baron do-si-do'd with the samecool grace with which he had once waltzed on Vienna parquets. Hedied, in his seventies, the way a grand seigneur should--swimming inMontego Bay, under a blue and perfect Caribbean sky'.
This next was taken from Helen Moe's family history: Also from theHISTORY OF VERMONT, received from the Vermont Chamber of Commerce:Moses Ellis was a deacon in the Christian church which had a smallfollowing in this section in the early days. About the year 1801,when the Methodist persuasion first visited the neighborhood, she(Catherine Ellis) became seriously convinced of sin in heart and life. After mourning for sin many weeks, one day, while engaged in herdomestic employments, the burden was removed and her soul was made torejoice with exceeding joy. From that time her face was set towardheaven. For more than ten years her husband was rather opposed to'experimental religion'. Experimental religion has become a habitwith descendents of this woman to the present generation.
