HARRISON ELSEY was b. ca 1814 TN...
we have no records on him before the 1850
Census. His parents remain unknown. He
came to AR ca 1836 with his Brother-In-Law
HARVEY C. LEDBETTER (Ref: Goodspeeds
History of NW AR).
Note...the Census Records 1790-1840 list
only name of Head of Household/Family...
other members of family are listed in age
groups (male/female) which may, or may not,
actually be correct. The enumerators were
basically counting people & they counted
everyone...relatives & non-relatives. The 1850
Census is the 1st to give us names, but does
not list the relationship of those listed to the
Head of Household...here we do a lot of assuming.
HARRISON married HELENA ALVINA LEDBETTER
(dau/ GEORGE LEDBETTER & SUSANNAH CHESSER),
marriage date & place unknown. You will find her
listed as ALUNA/ ALUNY/ HELENA/ ALUNA/ &
ALIMAY in the records.
HARRISON is ASSUMED to be the brother of (or
at least related to) THOMAS ELSEY of TN & AR
who was married to NANCY LEDBETTER (sister
of HELENA ALVINA).
