Hi Melba

You can tell that I am on a serious diet. You mention canning and I am
thinking that I need to pay you a special visit! LOL

Well, I don't know the answer to your thought that Elmira and Clementine
might be two different ladies. In this 1840 census that you found the Newton
Young in.......who was listed as his wife? Or was there even a listing of
names, other that head of household? It seems to me that that individuals
weren't named until 1850, in most earlier census records that I've seen.

I show Elmira to be the daughter of Elijah Melton, Billy's line.......and
Elijah's first wife, Elizabeth.

Now, I haven't made the corrections to Elmira and Tilford's marriages, per
LaMyra's reply to my post. So, you might not want to look at that union from
my chart, very carefully........because I was a bit confused with it all.

Here are the only census records that I have for Elijah and it does reflect a
daughter named Elmira C.

1860 Izard Co. census, Rocky Bayou Township:
MELTON, Eligah 49 TN
55/54 Elizabeth 42 TN
Elmira C. 22 AL
Jesse 20 AL
Mary A. 17 AL
Emeline 14 AL
William 11 AL
Calvin 7AL
Adaline 5 AR
Eligah 1 AR

Note: The Calvin Melton, above on this 1860 census record was married to one
of my Blankenships........Ankey Jane (1850-1934). She was a first cousin to
my ggrandfather, James Calvin Blankinship (1858-1903).

1880 Izard Co., Arkansas, Newburg Township:
MELTON Elvyah M 64 **** Farmer TN UNK
GA
15/15 Sarah F 42 wife Keeping House
VA VA VA
Thomas M 6 son AR
TN VA
SPEAKS Mary F 72 mother- in-law At Home VA
VA VA Carrie F 40
sister- in-law At Home VA VA VA


Now, the Frank Melton that married into my Sinor line and who met an early
death, as a consequence of this union......I believe is the gggrandson of
Elijah Melton, through Elijah's on, William A. Melton.

I hoping that Billy may be able to confirm this. He's checking it out for me.

Thanks,
