My McElroy family was from Walton Co., GA, but most of them ended up only a few miles from Winder.
One of my ancestors was David McElroy. One of his brothers as well as his father were named James.
My grandmother had a cousin named Bernice Brooks, born about 1910.She was the great grandaughter of Sarah McElroy, and greatgreat grandaughter of David McElroy.
Do you have dates of birth and death for Bernice?Any definite information about her parents?
I would almost bet that your McElroy family descends from Reuben McElroy, a Revolutionary Soldier from NC who came to GA after the war.
The name seems to be spelled McLeroy and McElroy interchangably.
