I would really appreciate any further information you can give me on Naomi Battersons family. Our Elwoods intermarried many times with the Batterson line. Of Richard Elwood and Rachel Davis' children - John, Joseph, Isaac and Stephen all married Batterson girls.
In your records do you show any previous connections? I still show no marriage information for Richard and Rachels' other children -Rachel, Samuel or Eliakim Elwood, Although I know they were married. I know Eliakim married away from their Green Farms Congregational Church after the admonishment of his grandfather John Elwood. John advised the minister to not marry the two underage kids. After Eliakim married his bride at the Justice of the Peace, he brought her back and together they officially joined the church.....but her name is never mentioned in church records anywhere. Very interesting...huh!
Thanks again for your response. Helen Elwood Conachan email@example.com
