your GF was my great uncle, willie; his sister, betty mae thompson troxell, was my paternal gm--my fathe is her son, robert. yes, he was a really nice gentleman.
we are all searching for the same info--what you have seems to be right on. i have been on the trail of lucreasa and seem to be slowly progressing...will be perseverent, and will be glad to share what i have as it gels into place.
yes, i have theorized about elisha's rapid exit to ky ofter--GM said the law came looking for him one time after he got to KY,and he hid from them and they left, so i think there was something to it re: war charges. i have a picture of lucreasa and elisha in their older years, and he is rather tall for the time.
