  • Notes 
    • Elwood wrote a memoir "A Lifetime in Northport" printed in the "Northport Observer" newspaper on 15 March 1947 which told about life in the Northport area during the 1870s and 1880s. As a young man, he worked as a cook on a coasting vessel and as a clerk in a feed store. For about five years he lived in Florida, where he raised oranges. He returned to Northport and remained in the area for the rest of his life.
