I am looking for information on an Elkin family living in the Wagner township area of the county. I have noticed in the Wolf Stake Baptist Church cemetery a number of Elkins are buried there.
Hugh P., Jr. b. 6/13/1925
Ira
Minnie S. b. 5/12/1879
Rosa B.
Samuel J. b. 7/13/1882
William
William Thomas b. 1910

The 1880 Census for Wagner Township shows my Great Great Grandmother Jane Davis Elkin/Elcain listed with her 2 daughters.
Elcain, Jane (age 26) - farm laborer
Rachel (8) my Great Grandmother Rachel Elkin Brock Wilson
Charity (3)

I believe that J.W. buried at Wolf Stake is the husband of Jane. He could have been married twice most likely to Rosa buried next to him.

Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated. Gail
