I'm sorry but I haven't a clue. I've found Newark, Essex, New Jersey or Genesco Co., NY or Upper Canada as possibilities. Elisha was cagey about where he was from. I'm assuming he left a family behind before coming to Utah. He was 37 when he married Abigail Daley in Salt Lake City in 1851. That seems rather old for a first marriage.

I'm also from the Lucy Cutler branch through my great grandmother Matilda Van Etten Cody.
