For what it might be worth to anyone researching these names, there was a family named Ellifrits in Adams Co., Indiana in the mid-1800's.The Adams Co. Marriage Records show Silas Elifrits married Mary Williams on January 31, 1856 - Marriage Record Book B, Pg. 192.
I know there is at least one or two members of this family buried in the Reynolds Cemetery in Root Township, Adams Co., Indiana.Will have to wait until the snow is gone so I can get back to this cemetery to check the names as they aren't recorded in the old records.I found the tombstones when I was doing some research there several years ago.If anyone has connections to this family, let me know and I'll see what I can find to help you. firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
