I'm trying to identify the James B. Elliott who, according to the 1881 Hist. of Ray Co. MO, was a member of South Point Church, Camden Twp, when it was first erected in 1854. His wife is mentioned as Sarah H.
I have a lot of documentation on a guy I call James Elliott, b. VA 1800, no death date but after 1870. He was living in Polk Twp, Ray Co. by 1840, and in 1853 married Sarah Hyder (fitting the "Sarah H." above), but from Polk to Camden would have been a long way to travel to go to church!
My other records show that my James first married Elisabeth Morris in VA in 1827 before marrying Sarah Hyder in 1853, but the 1860 census shows him living with his first wife and children. Marriage relations were fluid but I may have fused two different men named James Elliott.
