Notes:  Ella was the only daughter of her parents and lived with them in Thedford Village, Lambton County, Ontario, from 1870 until her marriage in 1891.  She then lived as a farmer's wife on Lot 31 (just over 32 acres) of Ontario's Bosanquet Township near the town of Forest and near her husband's parents.

Later, she moved with her husband Frank to Point Edward.  They were both active in the Salvation Army.

They moved to Wallaceburg, Ontario, in July or August 1902.  Five weeks later Frank, Ella, and their 10 year old eldest daughter became sick from Typhoid fever.  Ella, who had not been very well for some time, succumbed to the ravages of the fever.  Ella's remains were returned to Forest the next day on the 2:40 express train for burial.  A large number of relatives and friends met those in charge of the remains and accompanied them to Beechwood cemetery.  Officers of the Salvation Army from Wallaceburg, Thedford, and Forest conducted the service at the grave, which was one calculated to impress everyone there with the importance of right living to insure a happy ending of this life.

A solemn memorial service was held in the Salvation Army hall that evening.  In charge was Capt. Pattenden, of Wallaceburg, the Corp to which Ella belonged at the time of her death.  Ella died just short of age 31 and three days after her eleventh wedding anniversary.
