I am related to Elijah through his daughter Samantha Jane, who married Silas Acker's son Newman (Neuman or Numan) Acker. I live about 20 miles from the area where they settled and where Elijah and Elizabeth, plus several of their children and grandchildren, etc. are buried.
Samantha Jane Richmond Acker was my paternal great-great grandmother.
Would enjoy hearing from you and trading information.
