THANK YOU SO MUCH for your reply. I do believe my Elijah C. Winfree is the same one you referenced. The birth date I had of 1924 was taken from the 1860 census. The date you gave for Elijah would certainly fit that time frame. Elijah's daughter Cynthia Jane named one of her sons Charles Covington which certainly fits the Winfree and Covington family names. My oldest living relatives recall that Elijah migrated from Anson County, North Carolina and the census record bears this out showing that his children were also born in North Carolina. He had a son named G.A. (possibly short for Gideon A.?). I found G.A.'s death certificate with info reported by his wife, but unfortunately only the initials G.A. were used for his name. Most (about 75%) of the early settlers in Henderson Co, Tennessee migrated from Anson Co North Carolina. Elijah was most likely married a second time to a second wife, Barbara, before 1860.
Are you related to this line? Do you have any info to share on further ancestors of Gideon Booker? I would be glad to share what little I have on descendents of Elijah. If you do not have info where would you suggest that I start looking? Are there others working on this line?
THANKS AGAIN. Anita
