Documentation:
In Chester County, S. C. I can find no records of Elisha,
only father, George and brothers Reason (born 1780), and Benjamin (born
1790) and Stephen (born in Md. 1772). Under date of 3-4-1808 I found
Elisha and wife Nancy witnessing a deed in Jasper County, Ga.  Next
record was 1820 census of Walton County, Ga. The wonderful records of
Butts County (est. 1825) Jackson courthouse houses a first, estate
settlement of Elisha (died intestate) This file is very lenghty but was
the only way I could get childrens names. Butts county Superior Court
across from the courthouse revealed Elisha's real estate transactions
shortly before his death. Brother Stephen and Benjamin moved to Pickens
County, Al. in the 1830's.   George's other sons and daughters had left
South Carolina by 1810 and took up residence in Hart & Hardin County, Ky.
