Uncle Elbert practiced the art of barbering for 50 years in Bedias, Shiro and Navasota. Even so, those who knew him best would contend that his true occupation, and first love, was fishin, and that barbering was a sideline. He "retired" to New Waverly in 1949, but continued to barber. He lived at New Waverly the last 23 years of his life.
