I am attempting to trace the family of my maternal grandfather Edgar Earles Holland, aka Earl Holland, as far back as I can. His grandfather was Elisha Saul Earles b. Feb. 1855 somewhere in Ohio. I especially would like to locate any living relations to his cousin (or uncle) Ollie Earles, whom I am told complied a family history of genealogy some years ago.
Your posting is the first I have found of an Elisha Earles and I am wondering if he is an ancestor? If not have you come across my Elsha Earles ancestor in your research?
I would like to trace E.S. Earles' line back as far as I can. I have a photo of Elisha S. and Mary Emma Earles in their later years. I also have a photo of their family store in Carrsville KY.
