I could not get very far either. I did find a US Civil War Soldier Record for the Hallowell David H. Ellery.
He enlisted 10 Apr 1861 age 30 as a Private, from Maine
Mustered out 7 May 1863
Enlisted 13 May 1863 mustered out 21 Jun 1866
born abt 1831
died 23 Apr 1899

The entire family seems to have disappeared, at least from Maine. I have a few more Maine sites to explore.

Have you tried local historical societies?

Another thought - they might be cousins, as families often named all the kids after fathers, and grandfathers????
