BirthRachel Adey was born on 10 August 1852 in Hant's Harbour, Trinity, NewfoundlandG.
MarriageSamuel Ellis and Rachel Adey were married on 4 November 1871 in Hant's Harbour, Trinity, NewfoundlandG. Rachel and Samuel were married on Nov. 4, 1871, at Hant’s Harbour by Rev. Charles Comben. Samuel was 27 years old, Rachel 19. The service was conducted at the home of Richard and Mary Ann Pelley. Richard and Mary served as witnesses to the marriage ceremony, as did Rachel’s mother, Amelia.

At that time, Samuel was living with his mother in the house that his father, Thomas, had first built when he and his brother had decided to settle in Caplin Cove. Samuel’s brothers and sisters had already married and started their own homes. Samuel’s father, Thomas, had died a few years earlier. After the marriage ceremony, Samuel’s mother faced the prospect of living alone in the house that had, at one time, sheltered a large and busy family.

Samuel, then, brought his new bride back to the house that would now be shared between Samuel, Rachel and Samuel’s mother, who, according to York Ellis, was a "good old soul who smoked a clay pipe". Samuel and Rachel did not build their own home until after Samuel’s mother died.

Also according to York, when Samuel and Rachel were married "poor old grandfather (Samuel) had 50 cents and poor old grandmother had a little brown hen. They were married Friday night. Saturday morning she had to get up and take her ax and go up over the hill to cut enough wood for Sunday".1
DeathRachel Adey died on 10 March 1931 at age 78 in Hant's Harbour, Trinity, NewfoundlandG.

Other Life Events

AnecdoteRachel Adey was, in some ways, in strong contrast to Samuel Ellis. She was strong-willed and determined and never too shy to speak her mind. Her strength of character was relied upon not only within her own family, but extended to her community as well. As midwife, she was responsible for bringing into the world most of the new members of the Hant's Harbour and Caplin Cove communities.
Name-MarriedAs of 4 November 1871, Rachel Adey's married name was Rachel Ellis.

Other Life Events

NoteSimeon Dunn Ellis. Named after the minister of the day, came into the world on August 16, 1872 He married Mary Louise Mercer of Bay Roberts and moved to St. John's. After his wife's untimely death, Simeon returned home and asked his parents to raise his children. Elsie, Jessie and York Ellis were left at Caplin Cove with Samuel and Rachel. Simeon joined thousands of others on the other side of the continent in search of gold. While he was away, Elsie, at age 13, died of tuberculosis. A brave and intelligent child, she, aware of her circumstance, chose the hymns and readings for her final service.
Simeon spent the next twenty years participating in the Klondike gold rush. When he returned home, he was crippled with arthritis, and eventually was confined to bed.
One person who helped to take care of Simeon in his later days was his younger brother, Herb. While bedridden, Simeon would spend hours talking to Herb about his days at the Klondike. Some of these stories must have been very interesting. Simeon died on May 24, 1937.
