He and Joseph Boyd were instrumental in getting the vote in favor of incorporation in 1905 by rounding up and getting all the drifters and transients to the polls thus obtaining a small two-vote victory.)

The Elworthy home was located on the northeast corner of East and Pacheco Streets in the present North Todos Santos Heritage area in property originally added to the City by A. W. Maltby in his second addition. During the 1970s-80s, it was converted for use as a church and a child-care facility, but restored to its original configuration in 1988-89. It is currently used for commercial purposes.
