  • Notes 

    • Some time before he was 21, he left home and went to Butte, Montana, for he was already there when his younger brother, Levi Allen Eller, joined him in 1887.

      He died at the age of 56. His obituary states that he had lived in Butte 36 years. He evidently worked in the copper mines, at least part of this time being at the Anselmo Mine.

      When his mother died in 1907, her obituary stated that he lived in Arizona, but this was evidently for only a very short time.
