Elk Shoals Creek is along the border between Alexander and Iredell Counties. It is within Alexander county, but this area was formerly part of Iredell County before Alexander country was created.

I have a fragment of a map that shows the folloing families on Elk Shoals c. 1800

James McCorkle
Gabriel Alexander
John Ireland
Allen Alexander
Thomas (?) Snoddy
Wm. Ireland
Joseph Steele
Robert Murdock

This is near to the Houston Ferry Rd that follow the present county line. The Marvin M. E. church is near by as well, as is the Elk Shoal Academy.

I have information about David Alexander, probably son of Allen Alexander.
