    Notes 
    • Tragedy hit the Elznic family on September 9, 1911, while they were living on the John Luzum farm in Glengary Towship. Joie, age 12, and William, a younger brother, went to play in the nearby sand pits. After the boys were there a short time, the wet sand caved in on them. Joie was completely covered and William was covered up to his shoulders. Even with great rescue efforts by the family and neighbors, the wet sand had taken its toll. William was dug out safely, but when Joie was reached, he was already dead from the weight of the sand on him. (Milligan, p 266).
