While the books were compiled from Levy County articles much of the information also is about Alachua County.  I hope this helps.

This Elijah married Zaney Pendarvis.  I checked into this before but it's been a long time ago. But Mary & Allen may be brother & sister.

"Lest we forget, a town, Newnansville, Florida" by: Mary Lois Douglas Forrester

The Newnansville book is 188 un-indexed pages, so it's not as easy as it should be to look for citations. The book consists of several narratives by different authors and extracts from selected public records. Newnansville was founded in 1826 as Dell's P.O. It was renamed Newnansville in 1828 and made county seat of Alachua County. In 1854, the coming of the railroad caused the county seat to be moved to Gainesville. Newnansville started to decline and in 1884 when another railroad went through nearby Alachua, it virtually ceased to exist. The post office closed in 1887. Today, all that remains is the Old Newnansville Cemetery.

On pages 20-21 of "Lest We Forget, A Town, Newnansville, Florida," "a partial list of the citizens of the Newnansville community in 1845" does not list any Pendarvis or Williams.

"For The Year 1861 Only New Names" on page 145 lists E. L. Pendarvis.

List of "Those That Are Buried In The Newnansville - Alachua Cemetery" pages 88 -110 list no Pendarvis.

A list of "Florida Masons 1866 - 1870" for Alachua Lodge #26, Newnansville" pages 113 - 115 lists no Pendarvis - J. A. Williams member for 1866, 1867, 1868; Williams, Lewis 1868, Williams, Llewellyn 1867, 1868; Williams, Theophilus 1867, 1868.

A list of "Heads of Families In Alachua County 1840 Census" on page 134 lists James Pendarvis and no Williams.

Untitled lists on pages 135-136 which have paragraphs "For The Year 1847," "For The Year 1850" and "For The Year 1851 (Other Names)" lists no Pendarvis or Williams.

"For The Year 1852 All Names" on page 138 lists James Pendarvis.

"For The Year 1861 Only New Names" on page 145 lists E. L. Pendarvis.

Captain Lewellen Williams (b. 1833) enlisted 5/23/61 in Company B, 2nd Florida Infantry at Newnansville. He was wounded 5/5/62 at Williamsburg and wounded again 5/31/62 at Seven Pines. He was absent sick in early 1863 and resigned 3/9/63 from General Hospital #4, Richmond.

1860 Census

Familys listed in the 1860 Census as "free inhabitants in Newnansville, Alachua Co., Florida." They list the following:

James Pendarvis, male, age 28, Farmer, born in SC.   Nancy Pendarvis, female, age 30, born in Florida   Pattaticl Pendarvis, male, age 6, born in Florida L. A. Williams, male,age 28, Clerk, born in Florida

These census records had been photo copied and listed in a book, "Lest We Forget, A Town, Newnansville, Florida" by Mary Lois Douglas Forrester, P. O. Box 723, High Springs, Florida 32643. Also, she lists some pages from the account book of P. W. Cato, a local doctor. There is an entry for James Pendarvis on what appears to be October 1, 1881 for medicine for self $0.50. This was all I was able to find. She lists all the graves in the Newnansville Cemetery and I find no Pendarvis.
