I am descended from Elijah South, the Revolutionary War soldier from Middlesex Co., NJ.: Elijah South(1753 - 1836)Middlesex Co., NJ / Greene Co., PA Joseph South(1803 - 1866)Greene Co., PA / Henry County, IL John L. South(1844 - 1924)Greene Co., PA / Rock Island Co., IL Harry P. South(1887 - 1950)Rock Island Co., IL Chester P. South(1914 - 1980)Rock Island Co., IL(my father)
I am looking for is the parentage of Elijah South.I am pretty sure that his father's name is Joseph. I have sent for the will of a Joseph (1719 - 1812) but have also seen in a book on "First Families of America" that Elijah's father, Joseph, died in 1760. (Confusion here) I am trying to find out if I might be descended from the Joseph South/Thomas and Dorothy Lippington family. Either way, I am still very interested in Elijah's parentage.
Iwould also love to hear from anyone out there who is descended from (at any point) the lineage that I listed above. I have a lot of info on the Rock Island Souths and would be happy to share this info.
