      While Wiliam Ellis Jr. was in Stewart County as early a 1816, first record of purchase of land by him in that county is in Deed Book 9, pg 343, March 19, 1823. From Martin Bingham to William Ellis, 250 acres on Elk Creek. He may have acquired other land earlier, but, if so, deed was not recorded or record was lost. 1836 Tax List, Stewart county Dist. 6 shows:"William Ellis, no lands;" 1838 list shows William Ellis, Dist. 6, taxed on 250 acres. Others on 1836 list in Dist. 6 no land: William E Ellis, Duncan H. Ellis and Jesse Collier.

      For many years William Ellis Jr., was an active Justice of the Peace, performing many marriage ceremonies; also an active juror, a tax collector and in 1850, census taker for Stewart County.

      After removal to Tennessee, William and Sarah lived for a few years in Robertson County. Court minutes of that county for May 1810 name Isaac Winters as overseer of road from Milton Creek up to Caleb's Creek, with William Ellis, Sr., William Ellis, Jr., Sims Ellis and others as hands; a similar order in Minutes for Aug., 1810 names Reuben Bowers as overseer of the Iron Works road from th said Bowers to the Ford of Sulphur Creek, and directs him, with the tithes of William Ellis, Sr., William Ellis, Jr and others to keep the road in repair. Dixie L McCrary, "The Ellis Line from Surry," (1978, pg 198-207)

      Research by a descendant Mr. Paul H Arnot of Palo Alto, California, establishes that William and Sarah were in Stewart County., Tennessee by December 1816. Entry in Stewart County Minutes, 1815-19, p. 178 shows: May 7, 1817 The last will of Lemuel Smith, dec'd, was proved in open court by oath of William Ellis one of the subscribing witnesses thereto who also made statement that he saw James Milam, Sally Ellis Subscribe their names, ect.
