George Ellithorpe was reared amidst the surroundings of a comfortable home, and received such a limited education as the youths of that day were able to obtain at intervals during the winter months when they could be spared from the duties pertaining to farm life. A portion of his time has always been devoted to agricultural pursuits, but during the spring and autumn seasons, for thirty-two years, he also engaged in fishing on Lake Erie.
