I am descended from Elisha through his daughter Martha Jane "Jennie" Spivey who married Henry D Ohlhausen in Missouri. They later moved to Texas.
I just now broke the Spiva/Spivey code. ;) Never knew the name was Spiva at one time. Any idea where this family emigrated from to the US?
I'd be glad to share what info I have if you find it helpful or interesting.
