THE WESTERN STAR, 18 November 1893
Obituary of MONTAGUE B. ELLIOTT
PASSED OVER THE RIVER.

All that is mortal of Montague B. Elliott was laid to rest in the Duckworth burying ground Sunday. His demise occurred at 4 o'clock Saturday morning at his home in the southeast part of the county, from typho-malarial fever, after an illness of several weeks. He leaves a wife and 6 children - the oldest of which is 13, and the youngest 4 years of age - to mourn his untimely dissolution.

His family are nearly all afflicted with the fever, and his death was made all the more sad on account of but 3 of the children being able to attend the funeral. Thus has death darkened another home; bereft a loving wife of a fond husband, six children of a kind and obedient father.

When we contemplate the mysteries that enshroud the pathway to another world, the anguish and sorrow such a passing occasions and the moans and tears of the bereaved, we can but reconcile our thoughts to Him who said, "He worketh all things for the best," Mr. Elliott was respected by a large circle of friends. We understand that he left his family with but little of this
world's goods, and with sorrow a sympathizing community will mourn for them.
