He served his apprenticeship in the office of The Herkimer
American for several years. Thurlow Weed also served his

came intiiiiatply ;icquainted with Frank P. Skinner, since
secie1;iiv "i llii' 1 iiited States treasury, and son of Domi-
nie SkiiuTi, :! iiiiirh loved and revered minister of the
gosptl .;t ll.'ikiiiur. He listened to the earnest solicitation
of Rev. Kleazer Williams, — since famous for his claims for
the Dauphinship, — to join him in the Oneida Castle as a
teacher to the Oneida Indians. In 1819 he engaged to give
instruction to the young Oneidas in English branches and
in singing. Almost every night Mr. Williams taught him
the Mohawk language. During his absence Mr. Ellis read
the church prayers and homilies. He continued in Mr.
Williams employ for nearly three years. In 1822 he was
appointed by the Domestic Foreign Mission Society of the
Protestant Episcopal Church a catechist and lay-reader
to the Oneidas at Green Bay, Wis., which position he held
for nearly five years.

In 1827 Governor Cass made Mr. Ellis Inspector of the Pro-
vision Government Lands, by the Surveyor-General, Ed-
ward Tiffin, in July, 1828. In the fall of 1830 he was
chosen Secretary, and requested to construct a map for a
delegation of the ISIessosinissee Indians visiting Washing-
ton under the charge of their Indian Agent, Col. C. S.
Stambough.

In August, 1832, he was appointed a commissioner to survey
and establish a boundary line between the Menominee and
New York Indians, and in 1833 he was designated by the
Surveyor-General to survey a large district of public lands
near Green Bay, Wis., wliich by renewed appointments in
1834-1835 was extended to neighboring districts. In 1836
he was elected a member from Brown Co. to the legislative
assembly of the territory, and after serving one year
resigned, and in 1837 was appointed by President Van
Buren Sui-veyor-General of Wisconsin and Iowa, which
position he filled till 1841, when he resigned. He again
served in the territorial Legislature, and was afterward
appointed sub-Indian Agent of the District of Green Bay.
serving in that capacity till 1848, when he resigned. In
1853 he was appointed Receiver of the Land Office at
Stevens Point, and reappointed in 1858, filling the position
till 1862.

He served for five years as mayor of Stevens Point, when he
declined to fill the position of honor for any longer period
of time. On Doc. 3, 1833, when there was no white settler
in Milwaukee but Solomon Juneau, he issued the first
newspaper ever published within the boundaries of Wis-
consin, and called The Oreen Bay Intelligencer. Mr.
