|The Elmore Family of Montgomery County, MS|
Elmore families of Preston and James Riley that relocated to Carroll
County, Mississippi in the late 1850's left numerous descendants in the
present counties of Montgomery, Webster, and Grenada, although the
surname has almost disappeared from the locations.
The Elmore "boys" gave Tennessee as their
birth places on most census records but it is uncertain just how far
removed from their birth place they were upon entering the present
Montgomery County area. There were numerous Elmore families noted
in the 1850 and prior censuses in Tennessee but also others scattered in
several other Southern states, Alabama, Georgia, etc. At present,
there is no known "reason" for their relocation, no other
known associated families except those that they married into.
Also, no known antecedents at present.
