If this thread is still active, I'd love some help. I'm trying to trace the family of my g-g-grandfather Elisha Saul Earles, born Feb. 1855 in Ohio and died 1927 in Carrsville, KY. Since the name Elisha appears in the Gamaliel Earle family line, I've been looking for a connection, but haven't found it yet.
Our oral family history says that Elisha's family moved to Carrsville, Ky sometime between his birth and the Civil War. The owned a store and ferry which family legend says was a stop on the Ungerground Railroad. My grandfather told me that family members ferried escaped slaves across the river into Illinois. I'm willing to exchange into with anyone who can help me. Thank you.
