His home was where he slept, and he slept where darkness overtook him. he had paved up a neat sum of money and kept it on deposit in a Chicago saving bank. The cold winters of the north were too much for him and he came to Moore Haven to spend the balance of his days. He looked over the county and finally bought two acres of the finest land near Moore Haven. He made the deal with M. F. George, a local real estate agent, and took possession of it at once. He arranged with the Bank of Moore Haven to  transfer from the Chicago bank enough of his deposits to pay for the land he had bought and to make needed improvements and went to work.
One day he was bitten by some small insect in the neck, and from that bite blood poison set in from the affects of which he died August,16, 1918 at Hotel Newell In Moore Haven. He was buried on a spot donated by Mrs. O'Brien, Moore Haven's mayor. Just before he died he called the bystanders to be witnesses to his will, as to how his property should be distributed, and which was in the following words: "I wish my property to go to my two nephews, sons of my brother." This was reduced to writing and signed by the witnesses, and after his death was deposited in the local bank for safekeeping. He had frequently stated to his friends when in good health that he wanted his nephews to have his property when he died. His only relatives were those two nephews, Murray W. Scott, of Stark county, Ohio, and David H. Scott, state senator for Hamilton county, Ohio  - and a married sister, Mrs. Merrett Fawcett, who resides in Portland, Ore. He died before his money was received at Moore Haven to pay for his land, and, there being no written contract of sale, the deal was not consummated. His property consists of money in bank in Chicago and some lots in the city, amount and value of which is unknown. A public administrator has been appointed to take charge of the estate in Chicago, and the will is being probated in DeSoto county, Florida, where he died, and will be the basis on which the property will be distributed after the payment of his debts.

SMITH, Elijah - At Chicago, July 15, Elijah Smith, aged 70 years, formerly a resident of Henry.
Elijah Smith, we learn from the Chicago papers of yesterday, "has been gathered to his fathers." He died at the residence of his son Charles M. Smith, No. 215 37th street, on Tuesday, the funeral taking place today. Mr. Smith lived in this township from 1857 to 1867, and was owner and occupant of the Lombard place, a mile west of town. He was a brother-in-law of Rev. John Winn, and was an elder of the Presbyterian church of Henry at that time. He was then wealthy, living from the income of a large estate. The shrinkage of property in late years rendered him, like hundreds of others, comparatively a poor man, although his real estate operations since his return to Chicago accredited him as being worth, a few years ago $100,000. He was an old settler of Chicago, going there in 1838, when the population of that city was less than 5000. He was a very unassuming gentleman, but of excellent business tact, and respected by all.
