Biography:
John Ellis was described in his obituary in the Riponshire Advocate on the 9th July 1938 as 'one of the most progressive and successful soldier settlers on the Trawalla estate'.

Ellis served abroad with the AIF during the First World War. In his obituary it states he was a driver with the 38th Battery, Australian Field Artillery.

His father was John Ellis (Senior) and his mother Ann Robertson. Ellis married Ada Dobson and had one child Ray Ellis (born September 5 1928).

A collection of receipts from John Ellis Senior and John Ellis on the PROV Wiki give a fascinating glimpse into life as a soldier settler, listing purchases of groceries, farm equipment and other goods and services.
