Eli Amason married Jane Lee (a widow) 07 Dec 1841 in Sumter Co. Alabama. The family mostly used the Amason spelling and Eli was a cousin of the Amason's who remained in Sumter Co. AL.

Eli Amason died in 1862.

He had at least three children with Jane, whose first husband was a Lee. The children were Andrew B. Amason, Elizabeth, and Wiley Whitfield Amason. Some of the descendants relocated to Louisiana.

The Amason's who remain in Smith Co. MS, are a branch of my Amason family, and while there is most certainly a relationship, none of us has been able to determine just how the two families connect.

I have much more on Eli, and the Sumter Co. Amason's. You can e-mail me directly. : ) Sandy
