Please help! What do you all know about Elisha Walling/Wallen being married to 1)Elisha Walling/Wallen and 2) Hanah Lewis/Carter?
Elisha's son Harvey Trigg is the child in question. His death record says his parents are James and Hanah Carter, both of VA. Could Hanah have been a second wife? What happened to the first? Does anyone have documention of either marriage? There are several theories, including the theory that Hanah had an affair, and one that suggests that Harvey is the illegitimate child of one of Elisha's older daughters.
Also, out of curiosity, does anyone know where Elisha was buried?
