Edward Elam was born in Charlotte County, VA in 1786. He married 1) Martha Smith and 2) Lettuce Chaffin Wallace, widow of John Wallace. He left Charlotte County ca. 1814, may have spent some time in Rutherford County, NC, moved on to Tennessee, and died in Greenville, IL in 1840.

These two pages are posted in hopes they may stimulate discussion and research. The Edward Elam Bible is reported to have been the property of the late William Bell Elam of Medina, TN. Thanks to Marilynn Masten, who provided copies to me and who has determined that the
current location of the Bible is unknown. Names and dates are handwritten in list form on both pages. Identifying information and dittos written in the same hand preceed several of the names. Those notations are indicated here with brackets. I have tried to duplicate this handwritten list as closely as possible.
