In Reply to: Re: Thomas ELSEY Tenn>>Madison Co. AR by Chris Juhasz Schneider of 189

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).

HARRISON is listed on the following Census records:
1850- Madison Co., AR/ Bowen Twp./ Page 289
Listed HARRISON ELSEY

1860 Census- Madison Co., AR/ Bowen Twp./ Page 430

Listed HARISON ELZA

1880 Census- Madison Co., AR/ Bowen Twp./ ED# 103
Page 536C/ Listed HARRIS ELSEY

HARRISON d. AFTER June 1880 & BEFORE June 1900
as he is not listed on the 1900 Census. Date & place of
death unknown, & place of burial unknown.

HARRISON does have Land Records listed...Bureau of
Land Management/ AR (Public Land)
