With so many details to build on, one might think it would be easier to prove that hunch. Unfortunately, I haven't found the clues, yet, despite having such a unique name.
I've looked through the Census, of course, and through the database of books available from Heritage Quest through my library. I've dug through Newspapers.com, and Googled extensively... and only found what I already knew. I haven't even managed to prove who Elliott's parents were!
But even if it can't be a clue, at least the Day family gave me an interesting name to collect. And it gets better - Elliott and Mary Ann named their son "Thor Glyde Day"!
And that is certainly a rare treat!
