- [S147] Find a Grave, (Memorial: 18127238).
Mrs. N. B. Ellis was born in Sevier county, Tennessee, July 1, 1838, and died at Maryville, June 7, 1925, aged 86 years, 11 months and 7 days. She was the fourth of seven children born to Armstrong and Ann Wayland Erwin, all of whom have preceded her to the Great Beyond except her youngest sister, Mrs. Dicey Randall, who lives in Seattle, Washington.
She was married to N. B. Ellis, Dec. 23, 1856, with whom she lived happily until he was taken away August 18, 1916, a period of 59 years, 7 months and 25 days.
To this union were born nine children: Florence, Mary Ellen, Estelle, Charley, Ida, James, Horace, Annie and Edwin. Three of these, Mary Ellen (Mrs. J. R. Singleton), Estelle (Mrs. R. A. Hardy), and Annie (Mrs. Charley Griffitts) have entered into their rest.
Mrs. Ellis was converted in 1854 and joined the Boyd's Creek Baptist church where she retained her membership until she removed (sic) with her family to Blount county at the close of the Civil War when she transferred her membership to the Mt. Lebanon Baptist church. Since about 1885, she has held membership in the First Baptist church of Maryville, being at the time of her death the oldest member of this church. Truly, her children arise up and call her blessed.
Mrs. Ellis was held in the very highest esteem and loved by all who knew her. She belonged to that type of womanhood setforth by the inspired writer in the 31st chapter of Proverbs, kind, gentle, affectionate, pious and of great faith in God and her Savior. She was a constant reader of the Bible, and accepted its great fundamental doctrines without question. She knew her Lord and one of her joys was the season given to prayer. Mrs. Ellis will be greatly missed, not only by her immediate family, but by her church, and the people of the community. But she took her departure in faith and hope of the fulfilling of God's promise to his children. She had no fear and was anxious to depart and be with her Lord. "And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; Yea, saith the Spirit that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them."
