While trying to find the parents of Elijah Kirksey b. 1810 prob. in Chatham or Iredell County, I happened onto the family of Mathew (1850 Census)(the Mathew from Chatham?)and Milton F. 1840 Census. Also, marrying in Lincoln is Franklin to Eliza Bandy, 1836. (Are Milton F. and Franklin the same person?)Frank and Eliza had 3 sons, William, Jackson, and Elijah, and lived in Catawba County. Elijah married Martha Abernethy and had sons Mathew, Mark, and Luther, and daughter Lovenia or Lorenia. Ancestry has death records for Elijah, Martha, and Mathew. Does anyone know anything of this family?
