Speculation is that Elisha was the son of Jesse who was in Wilkes Co., NC records from 1779-1786. This Jesse is thought to be the son of Edward Coffey and Grace Cleveland. Edward was the son of Edward Coffey and Ann Powell.

This might be the same Jesse who is on the Pendleton Co., SC census of 1790 and 1800.

According to info that I have, Elisha was a twin to Elijah. Both were born 27 July 1801, probably in the Pendleton District of South Carolina. Siblings to Elijah and Elisha were Cleveland, Edward, Joel, and John.

Elisha married Mary White Morris in March, 1825. Their children were: John Morris b 20 Jun 1826 to 12 Jun 1888, m 20 May 1851 to Martha Hannah Terrell; Milly, b 15 Dec 1827, m 9 May 1844 to Geroge W. Parks; James Alvin, b 24 Aug 1829, d 20 Sep 1898, never married; Sarah Ann, b 10 Nov 1831?; Elizabeth Francis, b 12 Jul 1833, d 27 Sep 1896, never married; Eppy F., b 22 Apr 1835; Thomas D., b 1837-39.

Hope this helps!
