As a follow-up to the article on Benjamin H. Ellicott’s diary, I am publishing today Egbert T. Bush’s short biography of Ellicott’s father-in-law: Researchers into properties in the Locktown and Croton area will frequently come across his name, as he had real estate investments there amounting to more than a 1,000 acres. Mr. Bush has given us a fascinating view of this unusual character. My one lament is that, to date, no portrait of him has come to light.
