Yes
Thank you Thank you
Until I found Eli, I had no idea how my husband's grandfather got the name of Eli.
Are you related?

No, I'm only related by name.. Have been doing research on the name for years. this is one of my Disconnected families. we haven't figured out who Miles father is. but Dorcas was from the Whitaker's some of which followed to Indiana from Kentucky. and are also married into the Gathright Family..
the name Eli may come from her side of the family. I may know of someone who is also researching this family but I will have to check on it.. its here somewhere..

This is great
I have been doing research on all the families since about 1975
With a name like Williams..............
Besides being excited about finding husband's g.grandfather,
am hoping it might lead to the Williams.
Who knows

Thanks so much!!!
