Known as "Wes"
W. M. (Wes) Elliott, 69, prominent Dallas fruitgrower and businessman, died at his home Wednesday after an illness that extended over a two-year period.
Mr. Elliott had been very active in church, fraternal and farmers' organizations and had lived on the same place on Route 1 (South Uglow avenue) for the past 65 years.
He was believed to be the oldest member of the Dallas Methodist church and was chairman of the board of trustees at the time of his death. Mr. Elliott was a life member of Jennings Lodge No 9, A F & A M, a charger member of Mt. Pisgah local, Farmers Union, and was a member of the Rickreall Grange.
After devoting most of his life to fruit growing and farming, in 1939 when his health condition required that he become less active, he started a farm implement business on his place and devoted his principal attention to it. About two years ago his heart condition forced his retirement and the business was turned over to a son, Kenneth, and associates.
Western Thomas Mann Elliott was born on March 28, 1879, in Ontario, Canada, the son of James and Abigail Mann Elliott. He lived in Canada the first four years of his life and then moved with his parents to the place south of Dallas.
On August 5, 1908, he was married to Myrtle Clara DeHaven at the Elliott place.
The widow, Mrs. Myrtle Elliott, survives. Also surviving are one son, Kenneth of Dallas; five daughters, Mrs. Ed C. (Winifred) Totten of Dallas, Mrs. Norris (Dorothy) Kemp of Brookings, Mrs. Charles (Helen) Hopper of Portland, Mrs. Jack (Florence) Boydston of Corvallis, and Miss Gladys Elliott of Hollister, Calif.; nine grandchildren, Elva Totten, Jane and Kay Elliott, Judith, Julie, Janet and James Kemp, and John and Richard Hopper; three sisters, Mrs. Addie Wagner, Mrs. Conrad Stafrin and Mrs. Glen DeHaven, all of Dallas, and a brother, Dr. B R Elliott of Medford.
One son, Russell James preceded him in death in January, 1940.
