    • "Elihu C." cited in 1860 Wright Co., MO cenus, Hartsville PO, 31 Jul 1860, p.20 living next door to Sarah M. BUTCHER, 46, TN, farmer with David, 19, TN, Ezekiel, 15, MO, et. Al.



      "Family lore has it that Elihu was known as "3-Star" or "LeHue" and was killed in a sawmill accident around Lookout Mountain. According to Mark Alfred Hennessee, Elihu had a reputation of being a dangerous man and perhaps he was, in fact, thrown off the mountain by unknown assailants."

      Telephone interview with Mark Alfred Hennessee, Jr., December 1990.
