Daniel F. McElyea  possibly two of them
In surfing the net I found on Rootsweb where someone has submitted a Daniel F. McElyea born around 1837 and married a Martha Jane (sometimes referred to as Lemua Jane).They raised their family in Arkansas.This couple seems to match (except his birth year) the second marriage of Daniel F. McElyea who was in Benton Co TN in 1850.
Then the Arkansas Public Land records has acreage purchase by a Daniel F. McElyea in 1892.If the elder Daniel purchased this land he would have been around 77 years of age which I really can't believe a man at that age in that time period would have bought acreage.Now if the land was purchased by the younger Daniel he would have been around 55 years of age which is more probable.
Based on these I'm beginning to think that there maybe two Daniel F. McElyea's and up to this point many of us have been taking them as only one.If you have information which can definitely prove that there is only one Daniel F. McElyea please share it with the rest of us.Thanks.
