    Notes 
    • In the 1902 Faribault city directory, which includes Northfield, he is a clerk for C W Gress & Son. He boards at 614 St. Olaf Avenue.

      The 1911 Faribault city directory, which includes Northfield, advertises the business he owns with Martin Ellingboe as Ellingboe Bros., Clothing, 19 Mill Square, Northfield. He and John were also partners with John T Eltun (#19519) in another business, at 401 S Division, called Eltun & Ellingboe Bros., Dry Goods, Cloaks, and Groceries.

      In that 1911 directory, Martin is shown as living at 319 S Plum in Northfield.

      In the 1915 Faribault city directory, which includes Northfield, Martin resides at 304 E 5th.

      Registered for the draft on September 12, 1918, in Faribault as Martin Ellingboe, born March 19, 1880. He is a merchant with Ellingboe Brothers on (something) Square, Northfield. He lives at 304 5th Street in Northfield with his wife, Ada Lillian Ellingboe who is listed as his nearest relative. He is of medium height and build with blue eyes and light hair.

      In the 1920 census, he and Lillian are living in Northfield. They have no children. Martin is 37 and Lillian is 33.

      In the 1923 St. Paul city directory, he has a large and bold print ad for Martin Ellingboe, president, Globe Apparel Shop, Inc. He lives at 204 Park Court Apartments.

      In the 1924 Minneapolis city directory, he is Martin Ellingboe, president of Globe Apparel Shop, Inc. He lives in St. Paul.

      In the 1924 St. Paul directory, he has a large print, bold print ad for himself as Martin Ellingboe, president of Globe Apparel Shop, Inc. He lives at 194 Summit Avenue.

      In the 1925 St. Paul directory, his ad is in bold print. His wife Lillian is a buyer for Globe and his brother Joel is a “colr” for Globe.

      Martin and his brother John Maurice were the partners in the Ellingboe Brothers businesses in Northfield in the early 1920s. The businesses were a dry goods store at 401 S. Division Street and a clothing store at 19 Mill Square. In the 1899 Northfield directory, Martin and John Maurice were both clerks for C. W. Gress & Son so that may be the predecessor business. A Northfield News headline referring to Martin was in the October 6, 1922 edition: “Sold Stores.” John Ellingboe’s occupation is listed as “clothing, 19 Mill Square” in the 1926 Northfield directory and there was also a clothing business called Steele & Ellingboe at 327 S. Division in that directory.

      In the 1929 St. Paul directory, his entry is in bold print. He and Lillian live at The Marlborough, 148 Summit Avenue, apartment 501. He is president of Globe Apparel Shop at 20 E 6th.

      In the 1931 St. Paul city directory, he is still president of Globe Apparel. He and Lillian live at 148 Summit Avenue, apartment 602.

      In the 1933 St. Paul city directory, he still has a bold-print ad for himself but it is no longer for him being involved with Globe. In this directory, he works in collections at 502 Commerce Building and he and Lillian live at 153 N Western Avenue, apartment 9.

      In the 1935 directory, he has no special entry for himself. He is simply a “collr” and lives with Lillian J at 153 North Western Ave, apartment 9.

      In the 1937 St. Paul city directory, he is a salesman for Rothschild’s. He and Ada L live in Newport.

      In the 1940 census, he and Ada live in Newport in Washington County in a house they own worth $7500.

      In the 1952 St. Paul city directory, his was the only entry for an Ellingboe. He lived on 2nd Avenue in Newport.
