This biography from the Archives of AskART:
As a medallic artist, Salathiel Ellis created allegorical bronze pieces including an Abraham Lincoln Indian Peace Medal in 1862, Cornelius Vanderbilt Medal, 1865; Franklin Pierce Indian Peace Medal, 1853 and 1857; Isaac Hopper Anti-Slavery Medal; and the Millard Fillmore Indian Peace Medal. 

In their designs Ellis often had allegorical references such as a farmer and Indian standing with an American flag and with farming implements between them in the James Buchanan Indian Peace Medal of 1857.  Inscribed were the words: Labor, Virtue, Honor.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Massachusetts in 1803, Ellis began his career in Canton, NY about 1828 and was active there until at least 1864.  About 1858, he was in Toronto, Canada as a die sinker and designer of medals for the Masonic Order.   In 1869 he moved to California and had a studio in San Jose where he produced bas-relief portraits and designed medals for the U.S. Mint.  He died in San Jose on Oct. 28, 1879.
