As I was looking in Footnote.com today for Robert Elzy or James Elzy (to try to end the suspense to see if James was Robert's dad), I found a James and Robert living in the same house in early 1860. HOW EXCITING. Robert was born, according to census, in 1837 (we have 1840). James's wife was Mary (we had Rebecca and Matilda). But that is ok. I have found birth, death, and census, along with funeral records, and even headstones incorrect. So this could be right or wrong.
I have to do more searching, but could this be him?
Tata for now.
