      Frederickhouse. In Sept 1935, Elmo and family were living in the home later
      occupied by Emmett Smith (home built by Richard Pennell).

      On March 31, 1950, Elmo was "killed almost instantly after his sleigh
      jack-knifed, throwing him onto the ground against a stump. The heavy load
      slipped from the sleigh and crashed down on him. One of the heavy poles
      crushed his skull against the stump."
