Elisha Smallwood

GEDCOM for Elisha's father - Hezekiah Smallwood
PHOTOS OF THE SMALLWOOD FAMILY

Elisha Smallwood was born in about 1835 in Kentucky.  He died October 7, 1878 in Arkansas.  Elisha was a land-owner in KY and was murdered and robbed of money he was carrying to pay his employees.  His son, James, was a teenager at the time, and he assumed the task of providing for the family for a while.  When the two eldest daughters, Nancy and Mary, became teenagers, they moved in with other families and worked as servants to pay for their room and board.  Elisha's father died shortly after he was discharged from service in the Civil War.  He was probably quite distraught.  Rumor has it that Elisha abandoned his family sometime after the war.  For several years they did not know where he was or if he was alive. 

On June 23, 1853, Elisha married Mary Margaret Moore.  They had seven children before Elisha was murdered.  As the family grew apart, it is not known where the younger children lived.
