  • Notes 
    • Death: Letter from Katherine J. Delano Hervey to R. P. Hervey Apr 24. 1946:
      Ella bore up under Elser's death just fine. Dad and Del and I went over Saturday afternoon. He was buried at 4 o'clock beside Uncle Willie. They had beautiful flowers and a host of friends. Lollie stood it fine also, her two
      big boys were home. They are still in the army and will be for another year. Elser was paralyzed and had four brain hemorrhages. He died at the Veterans Hospital in Alexandria, Louisiana. Lollie was with him most of the time.
      They draped his casket in the American flag and at the grave they gave the flag to Lollie. He had a nice funeral.
