I have just started trying to trace my ancestors. I have also traced my family back to Elijah waters and Nancy Rhue, I belived Elijah is my fathers great great grandfather, by way of Claiborn Waters being the father, Elijah Wayne Waters the grandfather, Joseph Waters the great grandfather and Elijah the great great grandfather. I am also stuck on where Elijah came from even tho it said he was born in Va., but I also read that he sent passage for Nancy Rhue to come over from Ireland, if this is so how did he know Nancy to send for her, could it be he came from Ireland also then sent for her to come. A lot of the immigrants came by way of VA. Just a thought since I cannot find anything on the parents of Elijah. Any information you have would be appreciated. Also if you google Elijah Waters Fentress County TN you will get some info on Elijah and Nancy and a lot more info on some of the other family members.
