Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 726, White Post Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"E. A. ELSTON was born in Medarysville, October 21, 1857, and is one of the seven children of WILLIAM and THEODOSIA (IVINS) ELSTON; these children were born in the following order: MATTHIAS, MARIA, HENRIETTA, EUGENE, JOHN, EDWARD and THEODOSIA; MARIA and EDWARD are the only ones living. The father was born in Union County, Indiana, November 14, 1820; he began the study of medicine at the age of nineteen, completed his course in Cincinnati, received his degree of M. D., and began practicing in 1844, and continued until his death, in the fall of 1878, at Medarysville. E. A. ELSTON farmed chiefly until 1876, when he purchased the business stand where he is now located. He was married, November 20, 1881, to ADDIE HARRIS, who was born November 15, 1859, and to this union has been born one child - WILLIAM CLYDE. MR. ELSTON was elected Township Trustee in the spring of 1882, and is the present incumbent. He is engaged in mercantile business and carries a stock of goods valued at $3,000. Having lived in Medarysville all his life, he has the full confidence of her citizens."
