1837 Back Creek Land Sale - Kelley to Arthur

Posted: 3 Feb 2013 10:35AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Kelley, Arthur
In 1837 Elijah Kelley sold a section of land on Back Creek to Eli Arthur. At that time Eli Arthur was living in Bedford County but he was born in Botetourt County and was probably 'coming home'. The land sale shows up in the "Watts Collection" from 'Historical Society of Western Virginia, Roanoke, Virginia' Would very much like to see the complete details, locations, etc.

Our family has been trying to discover Eli's ancestors (specifically Father and Mother)and more information could help. Eli was born 'William Eli (possibly Elijah) Arthur' sometime between 1793-1799 in, most likely, Botetourt County - Roanoke. Married in 1819, Bedford Quaker Community. Went west with his son Amaziah and extended family and died in Missouri 1865.
