Willis , Sorry to be so long in getting back. Idid check out some if not all the probate info on James Ford Elms. It appears that the only children listed in the probate records are his children by Mahulda Meacham I 'm going to check a few other things. I 'm going to go to the courthouse and look at the will and see what else it may have there also. I did notice on the 1840 census that James Ford Elms was on the census and married but no children born at that time. This would be prior to his marriage in 1844 to Mahulda Meacham. Her father appears to be a John Meacham and think her mother was an Allen and need to double check her first name to be sure. I do feel sure that the Eliza born in 1842 in the household of Mahulda Watson Elms is the daughter of James Ford Elms and the niece of the Thomas Elms that was married to Mahulda Watson whose household she was living in in 1860. I can't find anything on her sister or at least not yet. I'll keep looking
