Annulment of a Secret Marriage

This story that Ellis's family arranged an annulment of  his secret marriage to an actress during his first year at West Point first appeared in print in the 1960s. It originated because of a misinterpretation of a remark made by Ellis's elderly nephew in the 1950s, who, it is now apparent, was then less than accurate about his uncle Harvey--Ellis's nephew was not yet born at the time the alleged marriage would have occurred. There is no public record of a such a youthful marriage, when Ellis would have been about twenty years old, or of an annulment. As was discussed in a previous post, Ellis's record at West Point was the sole cause of his expulsion. According to census records, Ellis married when he was thirty-three years old.
