I don't know if this is the right family, but Thomas Fothergill of Bath Co., Ky. had a son Elijah. Thomas Fothergill died between Aug. 1816 and Oct. 1816, Bath Co., Ky. His will is dated 22 Aug. 1816. His other children were: Rachel; Jonathan; Elizabeth; Nancy; David; Jenny; Sally and "our" Mary "Polly". I have no other info on this family other than they were supposed to have been from Virginia. I don't know his wife's name.
