Samuel McElroy Family KY > MO > TX

Seeking information on the family of Samuel and Mariam McElroy of LeClede Co MO and their children. After Samuel died in 1852, his widow and children migrated to Texas. Isabella (McElroy) Sloan Petty is my line.

Is this information correct? Does anyone have the text of Samuel's will?

From prior information:
