Trying to break through brick wall on my GGGrandfather, Elias L. ADAMS. I have the following information on him:
Delaware Co, IA, marriage records: 26 May 1853: Elias L. ADAMS, 24, m. Charity MARTIN, 18 (dau of George MARTIN Mary LEE?, moved to Delaware Co in 1845 from Champaign Co, OH)
U. S. Census--1860, Honey Creek Twp, Delaware Co, IA: ADAMS, Elias L., 33, m, farmer, NY Charity, 26, f, OH Mary, 7, f, IA, att school George, 5, m, IA [my GGrandfather] Asel, 3, m, IA Ester, 1, f, IA And 3 houses away is Asal ADAMS, 27, m, farmer, OH; and family
I haven't yet found anything on Elias in IA in the 1850 or 1870 and later censuses.
Any information on this family and their ancestors would be greatly appreciated.
