Notes

  • Demaris' name is spelled different ways in different records,indicating that the recorders did were not familiar with the name anddid not know how to spell it.  I have used the standard classicalspelling of the name.

    Note that tin their marriage record the marriage year is 23 yearsbefore her reported date of birth!  There is an error in thetranscription.  The image of this record is not available on Ancestry,but their transcription is wrong.  The birth year for Eli is aboutright, and the birth year for Demaris (Demarious) appears reasonable.
