No date visible, from family member copy of obituary: From Review and Herald Obituary Notices: ELMER - Died in Columbus, Wis., March 30, 1891, of diptheria, our little Ray (Roy), aged 11 months and 29 days. His sufferings were short, he being sick only four days. Our hearts are sad and our home is lonely; we miss our baby in whatever way we turn. O it was hard to leave him alone in his cold bed! but we know he is taken away from the evil to come, and we are glad he knew no sin. Death has robbed us, but our dear Saviour will restore our treasure soon; and we are seeking a preparation for that glad morning when his little grave will be opened, and we shall behold him clad in immortality. Now another cord is broken that bound us to earth, and another link is formed in the chain that draws us heavenward. We will not murmur, but, brethren and sisters, we do need your prayers, for we are yourng in years and have but lately started to serve the Lord, and we have none of like faith to associate with since our mother died one short month ago. E.A. and R.M. Elmer
