I know how inaccurate census records can be with their details, but I forgot to give this information from the AR State census on Daniel and Jane McElyea: ======================= 1880 Marion Co, AR, Union TWP
MeElya, Daniel H.65frmTNVANC Jane50wifeTNVAVA (Their seven children also listed).
======================= From a different book (1880/1890) Union TWP:
McElyea, D.F. (Daniel F.) 65 in 188075TNVAMD Jane50 in 188060TNVATN
Does make it hard if you are trying to determine where Daniel and Jane's parents were born. Jane's mother was born in VA.Wonder where Daniel's mother was born?
Daniel and Jane were living in Humphries (sp?)Co, TN in 1870.On one census record that year, I found him as Samuel F. McElyea.
