Note: this memorial updated May 31, 2017 with DOB correction per edit request. Further updated June 1, 2017 with obituary transcription.

Caution: The Jefferson county birth record for Elmer has been inspected in person by this contributor on June 1, 2017, at the Jefferson County Recorder office. The birth records are held in journal format and are most generally in chronological order. The entry for Elmer does match his correct DOB to be November 7, 1906.

The Jefferson County death record, however (also inspected in person by this contributor), indicated that incorrect DOB information was originally supplied and recorded. The DOB was originally entered as Nov. 7, 1907. The source for that information is not entirely clear, but whomever provided that information may also have been responsible, directly or indirectly, with the DOB inscription error of 1907. At some point the "1907" DOB entry on the death record was crossed out and "1906" now is overwritten. Presumably the error was detected and corrected, with the caveat that per Recorder office rules such changes in vital records can only be made by office staff under court direction.

Although this memorial was originally entered with the DOB year 1907 per the headstone inscription, per the edit request and the review of the original birth and death vital records, the DOB for this memorial is being changed to Nov. 7, 1906.
