Re: William Elks Jr.
Thanks for your response.
I agree that your William could be the father of my William Elks Jr., but I have nothing to make it more than a guess. Betsy Brooks was b. 1796, m. Isaac Parker abt. 1816. Isaac Parker d. 1835-39, and Betsy m. William Elks Jr. 1839 in Pitt County.
Perhaps someone else will have information that would help us.
