I don't know about Elisha & Cornelius, but my GGrandfather was Hiram Doty from Illinois. Hemigrated to Oklahoma sometime in the 19th Century and was a minister of the Methodist Episcopal church in OK City. Apparently he had quite a few children. My Grandfather returned to Illinois in the early part of the 20th Century to attend Northwestern, so he apparently had some connection through my GGrandfather with Illinois. Message me if this connects with anything. Also, see my two other messages on this forum.
