      Elias was born 14 Jul 1859 in NC (according to the census). He died 03 Jun 1936 in Columbus, Lowndes, Mississippi. He and Lydia are buried in Bullock Cemetery in Covington Co. Lydia was born 10 Jul 1864 in Moore County and died 17 Jul 1906 in Covington Co., Ms. He was a "Turpentiner" and was apparently pretty good at it. We have letters from employers in Mississippi recommending him for his work. I think he worked in the forests of NC, Miss, and Louisiana. We have heard of a letter but have not seen it yet that Wesley Fairly Seawell wrote Lydia regarding a trip Elias and Lydia made after their wedding to Tennessee to "visit" relatives. Wesley was apparently inquiring about the trip and asking how the relatives were faring but it is not clear who the relatives were or which side of the family they came from. (He does mention the towns of Bensalem and Candor, NC.) We also don't know where in Tenn. they visited. An elderly child of Elias and Lydia thought he was from Tenn and was pretty definite about it but I wonder if this was actually the Tenn trip made after the wedding. His census' states NC.
