I received both of your e-mails but did not get a chance to read them until 7/29/2009.I do have some info. that I will share with you but most of my source information comes from my friend who is the grand daughter of Christopher Columbus Elrod.However, I can tell you that there were two Christopher Columbus Elrod's.The Christopher Columbus Elrod that I am looking for is linked to George Washington "Wash" Elrod.You are right that Chistopher Columbus was only married once.On the census the people who interpeted the census used different names for Verna, Bernia, Margaret Lollar and I began to think that perhaps he had been married twice. I will e-mail you again soon when I have time to look up some info. for you. Thank You for all of your help.I don't know why you have not been able to reach me by e-mail try again and see what happens.
