      Elwood Bonsall

      Well-Known Realty Man Dies at Summer Home

      Stricken with paralysis, Elwood Bonsall, one of the best-known real estate brokers of the city, died suddenly at his summer home at Mount Pocono, last Wednesday. Mr. Bonsall was 77 years old. His wife and son were with him when he died.

      Mr. Bonsall was a director of the Land Title and Trust Company, of the Philadelphia Company for Guaranteeing Mortgages, and of the Rue Manufacturing Company. For years he was a member of the firm of Bonsall Brothers, real estate brokers, and at the time of his death was associated with his son, E. Warner Bonsall, in that business.

      He was one of the most prominent laymen of the Presbyterian Church and was an elder of the Northminster Presbyterian Church. His city home was at 208 North Thirty-Fifth street. His widow, son and daughter survive him.
