Ellis W. Jessup, a prominent farmer of Washington Township, was born Nov. 15, 1824, in Wayne County, Ind.  His parents, Abraham and Hannah Jessup, were natives of North Carolina, and in their youth moved to Wayne County, Ind., where they were married.  In 1833 they moved to Hamilton County, where the mother died in September, 1840, and the father in July, 1852.  They had a family of ten children--Mary, Jane, Hannah, Elizabeth, John C., Alfred T., Ellis W., Allen, Rachel, and Cyrus; the last three are deceased.  Ellis W. Jessup was reared in Hamilton County.  He was married June 11, 1846, to Millie Hinshaw, a native of North Carolina, born Oct. 15, 1827, daughter of Stephen and Elma (Hoover) Hinshaw, early settlers of Hamilton County.  To Mr. and Mrs. Jessup have been born thirteen children--Zelinda J., John T., Hannah E., Alcinda H., Mary E. (deceased), Addie M., George W., Rosa A., Charles W., Sylvester M., Frank (deceased), Maud A. and Minnie B.  In the fall of 1868 Mr. Jessup moved from Hamilton to Boone County, and a year later to Marion County, where he remained till 1876, when he came to Hendricks County and settled on his present farm in the southern part of Washington Township.  He is a successful agriculturalist and owns 120 acres of well-cultivated land, with all modern improvements, making it one of the finest farms in the township.  He and his wife are members of the Christian church.
