John Elliott, a veteran of the Civil War, died Thursday at the home of his son after an illness of 10 days with pneumonia. The funeral was held at his late home Sunday at 2:00 p.m., the Rev. Mr. Hagadorn, pastor of the Federated Church officiating. The casket was draped with the national colors and the bearers were eight members of the American Legion, a number of which acted as escort to Greenwood cemetery, where Mr. Elliott was buried by the side of his wife. He leaves to mourn his death his son, Elmer, and wife, grandson, George, and granddaughter, Hazel Wendall, and family, and brother, Charles Elliott of Oxford, Iowa. The death of Mr. Elliot calls to mind the fact that he was the sixth member of Garfield Post to die within a year, the others being George Sneden, Anson wright, Daniel Monroe, Luman Smith and Lewis Lapointe.
