Ananias Oliver Elliff, did have a child by his first wife Nancy Elliff, (a first cousin) but his name was Henry, and was always with his family. We have bible records that list this complete family.Ananias O. is my gr gr grandfather.
This Ananias was listed on 2 censuses as a Coble, that I can think of at this time. 1900 and I'll have to get back to you on the earlier one,as I working off memory only here. The 1900 census lists only the one Coble in Samuel's household, so by that I would "assume" that that was the name he went or was known by.
