Birth: 1815
Death: 1870

Son of Joseph Thorp Elliston, mayor of Nashville during the War of 1812. His mother was Louisa Mullen. WR Elliston built a home in West Nashville and named it Burlington. He died as the result of an operation on July 4, 1870 in New York City, having sought the advice of a specialist about abdominal pains he was having. His grandson, by the same name, who was the son of Elijah B. and Leonora Chapman Elliston was buried here as well, but was later removed to make way for another relative who wanted to be buried in his family plot.
