He was a member of the G. A. R. He made annual visits to relatives in Brattleboro and was often present at the reunion of his company. He was one of the number at the last meeting which was held in Brattleboro last September. Mr. Elliot's death removes the last surviving son of Samuel Elliot, who was a prominent lawyer in Brattleboro many years ago.
