Joshua Ells ["Eeles Eelles" in Barbour] was born 1 June 1750 in Lebanon, New Haven County, Connecticut Colony, to parents Joshua Ells and Mary Bill.[1]


Birth year given was 1750; unfortunately, that is only 7 months after the birth of sister Elizabeth on 3 November 1749 (per Barbour). Likely one of those dates is incorrect, but which one is unknown. Therefore, have marked Joshua's birth date as uncertain.


He passed away in 1850. [2]
