Alma, I hope this helps you. Again we have connected on a family. But again, this is not my family either.
In the 1850 census for Ellisburg, Jefferson Co., NY is Gardner Ellsworth age 39 shoemaker b NY with who looks like his mother Hannah age 60 born NY and a Luantia Scott age 29 and Julia E Scott age 5. Through census and bio's for Jefferson Co., Ny I found a son of William and Hannah Potter named William Henry Harrison Ellsworth age 30 and wife Alvira and son Wm D age 2mo. with Harrison Bromham age 5 and Nathan Ellsworth age 25 all living together in same county and close by.
And I found a Nathan G Ellsworth was a resident of the Jefferson County Home from Dec 13 1913 age 89 till he died Feb 16 1916 age 91.
From census and bio and County home records it looks as though Nathaniel Green Ellsworth and Nathan G Ellsworth are the same person.

Bio for William Ellsworth:
CHILD'S GAZETTEER OF JEFFERSON COUNTY
TOWN OF ELLISBURGH

Ellisburgh, Jefferson Co., New York

William Ellsworth, son of William H. and Sarah (Grimes) Ellsworth, was born in 1784. He married Hannah, daughter of Abel and Margaret (Green) Potter, in 1810, and located in a log house on the farm where Nathan G. Ellsworth now resides. They had three sons and three daughters, viz.: Gardner P., Emily, William Henry Harrison, M. Lucretia, Nathaniel Green, and Betsey. Gardner P. died in Ellisburgh in 1886. Emily married Emerson Burnham and had two sons, Loren B. and Ellsworth B. M. Lucretia (Mrs. Eastman Scott) had one daughter, Julia, who died in 1861, aged 17 years. Nathan Green Ellsworth was born on the homestead in 1824. At an early age he manifested an aptness for music, in which he afterwards received a thorough training, and became a proficient teacher, which profession he now follows. He occupies the Ellsworth homestead, on road 80, with his sister, Mrs. Scott. William Henry Harrison Ellsworth, born in 1817, married Elvira, daughter of Hial and Olive (Holmes) Richards, in 1846, by whom he had a son, William Dwight, and a daughter, Martha E. The latter married Alexander Brodie, in 1873, and they have three children, viz.: Julia M., Mary C., and Alexander. William D., born in 1849, was reared upon a farm. He married Alice Adel, daughter of Charles and Sarah (Pronty) Wood, of Pulaski, N. Y., in 1881.

My notes on this family are:
WILLIAM ELLSWORTH was born 1784 in Pownal, Bennington Co., Vermont, and died July 06, 1836 in Ellisburg Twp., Jefferson Co., New York. He married HANNAH POTTER January 23, 1810 in Oneida Co., New York, daughter of ABEL POTTER and MARGARET GREENE. She was born July 13, 1787, and died October 28, 1858.
