Alvah R Elmendorf Obit
Alvah R. Elmendorf died at his home, in Kingston, N.Y., February 9th 1926, aged 71 years. He was born at Olive, N.Y., September 26th 1854, and was the son of the late Cornelius Elmendorf and Charlotte Bogart. He was married to Ida M. Winchell May 26th, 1880, and she survives him with one son, Lester C., and two grandchildren. Two sisters also survive him; Mrs. Emma C. Johnson and Mrs. Elizabeth Bishop, both of Kingston, New York. It was a pleasure for Mr. Elmendorf to attend our meetings, and he loved to have the brethren he knew visit him. He was not a member, but he believed the truth. For about three years he had been suffering from heart trouble, yet when the end came it was very sudden. The writer officiated at the funeral, speaking from the twenty-third Psalm. May the Lord comfort and reconcile the widow and all his relatives to his sovereign will.
