Eliga (Elijah Harris, son of Azel D. Harris?

I've been searching for the father of my gggrandfather Eliga Harris (m. Jane Sharp). I have no sure sources for his birth but recently found a biography in the public library in Water Valley Mississippi that said he was born in Winfield County, Alabama. I couldn't find a Winfield County but I do know that there is a city of Winfield in Marion County. Eliga's headstone says he was born in 1813. If, he truly was born in Marion County, Alabama, according to the 1820 census, he would only fit in with Azel Harris as a male between 15-20 years old. His wife's father is also listed in that census and she fits the age for a female her age.

Eliga died in 1850 in Lafayette Co. MS. His first three children, and his wife were born in Alabama, probably Marion County.

If anyone has any other information that will secure this for me, I woudl love it! I am looking for primary sources if possible. I also saw someone's family history that listed Azel's wife as Patience. And, Azel D. Jr. would have fit in the 15-20 yo male spot as Eliga's younger brother. Please contact me if you have any other information that can help me! Thanks!
