    Ellen Shellenberger, Covington; she is the daughter of Samuel Thompson, whose biography appears in this work. She was married to D. M. Shellenberger, in 1861, who was the son of Jacob E. Shellenberger, by his first wife; D. M. received a business education, being brought up to the hardware business, and continued with his father in that trade here until 1867, when he went to Brownsville, Neb., and in company with his brother W. D. engaged in the hardware trade there; they were quite successful; but consumption claimed both for its victims, and compelled them to relinquish their business; both returned to Covington and died here at the place of their birth; the decease of D. M. occurred in 1871, and that of his brother, in the following year; Mr. Shellenberger, although a young man, had established a reputation as a business man of ability, and by his many good qualities, had won a large number of friends, who deeply mourned his early demise; the widow and three children who survive him are pleasantly and comfortably situated; her residence, on Wall street is one of the best in the town, and her home, in its surroundings and furnishings, indicates culture and refinement.
