Hello Deborah:
I find the elder Elam (Ealam) in the 1850 PCVA census at age 73 with Nancy, age 70: see below
I have a younger Elam (Armistead, Ealam)in 1920 PCVA census married to Emazetta Dalton, below.

You probably have this, however I wanted to mention that the younger Elam's brother Samuel Newman married into my Shelton Family.
Susan R SHELTON b, 1847 (Thomas & Elisabeth) married Samuel Z.T. Newman in 1872.

I also have a daughter Charlotte born abt 1800 of Claiborne Shelton and Elizabeth who married James Newman.

I am very intersted in any information about children born of Claiborne and Elizabeth.
