Ela Vincent Roberts was the son of Caroline Cole and Elisha Roberts III of Turin, Lewis Co., NY. He died a few months after enlisting in the United States Army. It appears he died of pneumonia. His mother, Caroline Cole Roberts, received a Civil War pension as a result of her son's death, being widowed, and destitute. The pension application stated that he died on 13 Apr. 1862 not on the 11th of Apr.

His death notice in a local Lewis Co., NY, newspaper read: At. St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D.C., April 11th, 1862, Ela V. Roberts, of the 59th Reg., Co. B, N.Y.S.V. - aged 18 years.  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, April 23, 1862)


"At St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D.C., April 11th, 1862, Ela V. Roberts, of quick consumption – aged 18 years.

He was the only remaining son of Caroline R. and Elisha Roberts, deceased, formerly of Turin. (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, April 30, 1862)"
