Hi Earl, Thank you so much for your message.I changed my email address a few years ago and almost didn't manage to get back onto the message board just now.I haven't been receiving alerts when someone responds to one of my posts so I didn't know until tonight that you had posted your message.I hope to correct that today.
I have had a gut feeling that our Elizer's were from SC. Since our branch settled in TN, we just all assumed that the Lexington mentioned was in KY.But none of us have been able to find any reference to them in KY as yet. I still haven't found a link between our Elizer's and the Eleazer's except for a side branch of the Elizer family.And that side branch angle is very interesting and might actually lead to a true link. James Garrett Elizer (a brother of my husband's great grandfather) married Susanna Hogan in 1860, Sumner Co., TN. Susanna's mother was Rebecca Weakley.Two of Rebecca's Weakley relatives married Eleazer's. These were: Susan Weakley, b. 1805 m. Levi P. Eleazer, b. 1808 and Martha M. Weakley, b. 1839 m. John Philpot Eleazer, b. 1838 (Levi was John's father.)
Both of these Weakley women were born in TN and at least one was married in TN.I have no marriage data on the other woman.
I have in my notes that John Philpot Eleazer is Grace Pharr Eleazer's (she posts on this site) ancestor but I think (and this has been a long time ago so I could be remembering it wrong) that Grace may have already told me that she showed no connection to the Elizer family.
The family dairy should be a good clue but so far I haven't found a dairy that large in Lexington, SC in 1816...that just may be poor research on my part.
I found it very encouraging that you feel that SC is the place instead of KY.I intend to go back over the sites I saved when I looked into that area years ago and see if any more info has been added.
