Elrod family additions

We are continuing our efforts at getting LaVaughn Elrod Zimmerâ??s family research entered into our database. She has done an enormous amount of work and the family is truly indebted to her. This week we finished this goal! We did much more than listed here, and just had to stop interrupting the work and just enter data.

To supplement her work, we are using the cemetery transcripts recorded in 1980 of the old Elrod Cemetery. We also are adding census work as we move along. In all, it is a slow process, but if we can do it right, one that will be of benefit to the family.

It is interesting to see so many families that we work on in this Missouri land grant area. The Greens, Moons, and several other families from this area expanded to Arkansas, the area we have worked hard to delineate. Seeing the roots in Missouri adds another dimension to the story.

So continuing on, there is so much being added it is difficult to keep up this record, but here is our feeble attempt!

Bray Family

The Bray family is now entered using the above sources. The cemetery lists an Olive Jewell Bray, with no other data, and so we donâ??t know where she fit into the family. We have not done census work at this time. Well, scratch that. It seems it would be helpful to back up to Thomas Benton Elrod Jr. and add the census work after 1880. So here we go!
