Thanks for your time Mr. Collier!
I need to make some clarifications:
I have not found Francis either in any censuses or other documents (at least none I can say for sure is the 'right' Francis, I also looked for children with names of Isham or Eliza).
Elijah did most likely pass away before 1880 when his wife is living alone with six children.
Some more thoughts:
Here is what I DO like:
And I also off course like that since they are named as husband and wife (in two different documents) they are as you say likely to have had children and that they seem to be in the right age for having children.
Here is what I DO NOT like, please tell me what you think:
I also do not like that I can't find Francis anywhere. Since the bill of sale from Charles Henderson Hood to Mathew Tomlin was recorded in Madison County and not his native Dyer County, maybe to be sure I need to check more counties to see if he sold Francis. Based on 1850 and 1860 slave schedules I firmly believe that she was no longer with Charles Henderson Hood.
If I put the pros and cons against each other I would still go with what I DO like weighs more than what I DO NOT like.
I guess my question is: If Elijah was your ancestor, would you add Isham and Eliza to your family tree?
