One of the nice things about researching 2x great granduncle John Wesley
Ellingwood and his family is that it has put me in touch with another Ellingwood
cousin. Bonnie is the owner of the Find A Grave memorial to John Wesley and
is his grear great grandaughter. We've been sharing pictures and documents
the past few days and she's kindly given me permission to post some family
pictures here. Thanks, Bonnie!

 Some of their children:
Enoch Merrill Ellingwood

Finally, I've written before about how oxen were common in Northern
New England on farms and in the logging industry. We think these may be
John Wesley Ellingwood's team of oxen:
Thanks again Bonnie for sharing these!

I love the oxen photo! I drove some once in a parade (with lots of help) re-enacting the Knox Trail through Worcester, MA during the Bicentennial. They are great creatures.
