Mary Bill was born on July 2, 1721 at Hebron, Tolland, Connecticut. She was the daughter of James Bill and Mary (Swodel) Bill[1][2] The specifics of her marriage to Joshua Ells have not yet been documented, but various online trees state that they were married in Connecticut in 1742 or 1744. Joshua, Mary, and their family were part of the New England Planter migration to Cornwallis Township, Kings, Nova Scotia in 1759-1760, settling the area later known as Lower Canard.[3][4] She died in Cornwallis on January 25, 1797.
