I am curious if there are any researchers who have an Elizabeth Elam (age 38) residing in Rowan county, apparently as a widow, in 1870. Listed with her in the 1870 census are the following children; Thomas, 15; Benjamin, 12; Chalmus, 9; Nancy L., 1. I have seen a Benjamin Elam and family living in Rowan Co. in 1900, 1910, and 1920. May be the same as above, the age would indicate so. I would like to know who Elizabeth's husband was. Any help would be appreciated.
