Ezra Ellingwood's page
.....Calamity came in a pair for the Ellingwood family in 1844. Elizabeth had just died and was still at home when, around the corner, the cabinet shop of her brother-in-law Ebenezer Ellingwood caught fire. The large house of the Kittredge family across Federal Street from the Ellingwood house burned to the ground. The First Church of Beverly across Cabot Street from both also caught fire, but it was put out. With the Ellingwood house threatened, Elizabeth's body was moved to a neighbor's as a precaution.
children of Elizabeth Haskell and Ezra Ellingwood:
i. Edward Payson b. 13 October 1835
ii. Charles Henry b. 17 September 1837
iii. Lyman Haskell b. 1 September 1839
vital records sources: Elizabeth's birth, marriage and death records come from the Beverly vital records.
