  • Notes 
    • Here is the story that has been handed down; It is believed that Great great grandpa Elijah and his son (?) were hanged during the Civil War. The family who were shamed by the incident changed their name to Smith and eventually moved to Louisiana about 1865. I can't verify any of this, but the fact that nobody can find a record, indicates that some of this may be true. The death certificate of Daniel Elijah shows that he was born in Pulaski Co. Georgia, near Hawkinsville. I have searched by all means, but cannot make a connection to what their former name might have been. I believe that they were friends of the Timothy Smith family, who seemed to be near wherever a census was taken. Timothy eventually married Talitha Underwood Boyett, the mother of Nancy Myra who married Daniel Elijah. They married after both mates died in Winn Parish. Daniel and Nancy wound up in Grant Parish at Pollock, where they raised their family and lived the rest of their lives.
