She had been a member of the Church of England and had been baptized as a infant. Now she saw it as her duty to follow the ordinance of the Baptist faith and walked slowly into the stream to be baptized like her dear Saviour.

Ninian Riley, the son of Eliphaz Riley, was born March 18, 1725 in Montgomery Co.,MD. and died 1814, in Fayette Co. KY. He was a farmer and a Baptist Minister.
His reason for leaving appears to be harrassment for supporting the Patriots and the fact he converted to the Baptist faith. He had been a Warden in the Rock Creek Episcopal Church. At least two of his sons were later ordained ministers in the Baptist faith.

His was the eighth name on Samuel McGruder's return. Ninian was the Warden of St. Paul's Parish, Rock Creek Church (now in Washington, D.C.) for the years 1763 through 1767, and 1772.

Record of The Family of Joseph Ellis

Preface of the book states: Much credit for the record is due Lallah Haddon, born 1 Oct., 1890. Lallah was the daughter of John C. Haddon, born 2 March, 1853, and Hattie Sandley. Lallah married C. E. Dayvault. She served as secretary of the Ellis Reunion, 1911-1917. We regret that the record is not complete, as to some families, due to inability to contact them. The descendants are scattered from South Carolina to California. On account of expense, it has been necessary to omit much of interest and to condense the record. There were seventeen children of John Eli Ellis and they are designated I to XVII; his children by A,B, and etc. The words, born, died and married have been omitted. For example under III,"Polly Ann Ellis, Jan. 13,1822 - June 20,1887-Zechariah Haddon, Nov. 14,1841-June 28, 1900", means "Polly Ann Ellis was born Jan.13, 1822, died June 20,1887; married Zechariah Haddon Nov. 14,1841 and he died June 28,1900, and so on throughout the record.
On August 23, 1884 a reunion of the family was held at the old homestead in Abbeville County,S.C. with 85 present. On July 27, 1911 a reunion of the descendants was held at Bethelem Church near Due West, with 170 relatives present. This family reunion was held annually until 1929 with as many as 400 present. The five preachers of the family served in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church.
