You are correct. They are different. Have detailed history and family tree of the Eli4 (John1, Charles2, John3)that married Jane Warren at age 20 in Barbour Co., AL. He had to have written permission from his widowed mother, but Jame at 14 did not require parental permission. I am, however, interested in your Eli as my Eli's great uncle James2 settled in the Burke/Jefferson Co., GA area before 1820 and had a son Ezekiel (1804->1880), also known as Eli. Is there any possibility your Eli could tie into that family? There were several brothers to Ezekiel who also might have named a son for their brother Eli.
