Re: hugh Mcelyea
This is either Hugh Sr. or Hugh Jr. Probably Sr. Son of Laughlin McElyea and Mary Powers. He bought land in Robertson County in 1809.

Hugh Senior's sister, Mary married David Spence. Since this is a suit of some kind with William Wilson and Peter Spence as defendants, I would presume that Hugh posted bail for relatives.
If you are researching the McElyea line, the book "McElyea's in Transit" by Clara Hunt Miller might be useful. I believe you can purchase one from Elizabeth Nobles at email@example.com
