In the 1840 Census for Jackson County, Georgia, Elijah Durham (age 20 - 30) is
listed as Head of Household. Elijah Durham does not marry til 1842. There are
3 younger males listed with Elijah, and 3 females. One female is listed at 60-70,
which is most likely Elijah's mother.
The 1840 Census shows Elijah Durham living near "Moses Potts" and "James
Bailey". Moses Potts and James Bailey are also listed in 1830 Census living
near "William Durham" and "Anderson Durham". Anderson Durham
is the older Durham and does have a young male who matches the age of Elijah
Durham. I have currently placed Elijah Durham and William Durham as children
of Anderson Durham. More research is needed.
