He was a surveyor and by his unswerving adherence to justice and precision in his work he gained the confidence of his acquaintances, many of who when they were involved in difficulties or had business in his line, unhesitating and confidently sought his counsel and efficient aid. He was unusually well informed in legal matters for one who had never studied for the profession. Like many of the name he was noted for the soundness of his judgment, for keeping his own counsel, and confidence of others, and also for his firmness when he thought he was right. He was elected Township Assessor for nine years in succession. He was several years a Justice of the Peace and Represented for two years his district in the State Legislature of New Jersey. In 1838 Elihu bought a farm from Thomas Willits. He repaired the old farm building and built some new ones. After his death on December 11, 1856 aged 64 years and three months, his daughter Sophronia became the proprietor of the farm.
