History: James P. Ellis, James B. White

By Mike Watson

Information of James P. Ellis, of Adair County, Kentucky, who emigrated to this country in 1849. When last heard from he was on the North Fork of the American River, in August, since which time no tidings of him have been received by his friends, either in this country or Ky.

Any person knowing his whereabouts will confer a favor by communication the same to this office, or to S. Austin, Placerville. Sacramento Weekly Union, please copy on month and send bill to this office. (Signed) Shelton S. Austin, Placerville, 9 July 1853. -- Placerville Mountain Democrat, Placerville, CA, 4 March 1854, appeared in several California newspapers through August 1853.

James B. White, M.D., Late of Columbia, Ky., and now of Crab Orchard, Is a graduate of Transylvania University, and has practiced his profession for about twenty years amongst us, and in some of our families, with success.

We consider him a scientific, safe and good Physician and Surgeon, kind and attentive to his patients, and pretty certain to win and maintain their confidence.

For several years past he has blended the Hydropathic System with the old mode of established practice, where it seemed proper to do so. His success has been good, under either mode of treatment, or when combining them.

We regard him as a safe and able man, in the practice of his profession, and cheerfully recommend him to those in want of a good Physician or Surgeon.
