Ellis, George (1853–1930)

Mr. George Ellis, who died at his residence, "Hazeldene," Meadows, on January 16 at the age of 76, was born at Meadows. When a young man, with two of his brothers, he went to Moonta in the early mining days. After a few years he returned to Meadows, where he married Miss Ellen Sidler, of Dashwood Gully. He then carried on a butchering business for 35 years, and also had a mixed farm. He was president of the institute for many years and president of the agricultural society for a number of years. He was interested in all agricultural matters, being president of the local branch of the Agricultural Bureau for over twenty years. He was one of the oldest members of the Oddfellows' Lodge, and at one time was president of the Meadows branch of the Liberal Union. His wife died four years ago. Five children survive—Mr. A. L. Ellis, of Meadows, Mrs. W. E. Baldock, of Long Flat, Mrs. W. G. Nicolle, of Clarendon, Mrs. H. White, of Booleroo Whim, and Miss Ellis, of Meadows.
