Although Mr. Elliott was not a member of any church he believed in Christ and his teachings and attended the Morrison M.E. church. At the time of his death Ellsworth was in the best of health and thought of nothing else but that he was to live many years longer; but death came without a moment's notice. When found Mr. Elliott was lying behind the horses, but as no one was a witness to his death it is not fully known just how it occurred. Dr. Conner of Reinbeck, was called to hold an inquest, and it was thought Mr. Elliott had been crushed by one of the horses in the stall as there were no marks of a kick on the body. Funeral services were held at his home, Sunday Sept. 9th, at 1:30 p.m.; Rev. Mitchell and Presiding Elder Albrook officiating. The interment took place in Rose Hill cemetery, Grundy Center. The attendance at the funeral was large and the floral offerings many and beautiful.
