Son of Sylvester Mather & Mary (Hargrove) Wait


Columbia Chronicle 4 April 1885
Passed Away. – At half past six o'clock Monday Morning, Elbert F., son of Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Wait of this city, passed to the land beyond. He has been suffering with a complication of diseases affecting his lungs and stomach for several months, and for at least four weeks, has been at death's door, kept alive only by the unremitting care of affectionate parents, brother and sister. Elbert was a young man of more than ordinary ability, and his untimely death will be regretted by a host of friends in Dayton and Waitsburg, where he has passed his life. He has gone where death and afflictions are strangers, and where the snares and pitfalls set for unwary feet in this world are unknown. Not dead but gone before. His surviving relatives have the sympathy of the entire community in their great bereavement. The remains were followed to their final resting place Tuesday, by a large number of friends, the church being crowded to overflowing. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. W. Knowles. The members of Blue Mountain Lodge, N. 28 A.O.U. W. , of which order the deceased was a member, conducted the services at the grave.
