  • Notes 
    • CENSUS: !1850 Miller Co., Richwoods Twshp Census includes children of his wife's half-brother Jacob Riley Gardner - Isaiah Allen, William Paulding, Dorinda, Lavinia "Vienna", and Willis Joel Gardner. Jacob and his wife, Olive Allen, had apparently died before the move to Miller Co., MO.

      BIOGRAPHY: !Elias and Mary homesteaded more than 250 acres of land directly east of Iberia, just outside today's city limits. Elias was a slaveowner and brought at least six Negroes with him to Miller County. In 1859, the six slaves were assessed with a value of $1,950; in 1860 their value was $1,800; and by 1862, their value had decreased to $500.

      DEATH: !When Elias died in 1885, at age 75, he bequeathed all his land to his wife, Mary. He also gave her all his personal effects including money, cattle, horses, sheep, hogs, notes, accounts, and all other assets which he might have at the time of his death. At the death of his wife, their two children would inherit the land (160 acres to Robert and 60 acres to Cornelia). His will was witnessed by two Iberia residents, Isaiah Latchem and Jeremiah C. Tallman. [Source: Peggy Hake "Out of the Past" http://members.tripod.com/devere8/id25.htm]
