Mr. Elliot lived next door to us in West Robbins. He and his wife Tennessee "Tennie" were one of the oldest families of the West Robbins community. This photo was taken in 1959 in front of his home. My Mother took care of Mr. Elliot the last few years of his life. He left his home and land to my parents after his death. This house became my childhood home in West Robbins for many years before it was destroyed by fire.
