ever been held in higher respect and esteem, than Mr. Elder. At numerous times he has been called on

to fill township offices, and might have been honored more, but he was a quiet unassuming type of man,

who preferred to be at home with his family. He was ever a loving husband, a kind and true friend, an

affectionate father, and a good neighbor."
