      "I have an Elrod family Bible that has been passed down to me. ThisElrod family lived in Montgomery County, IN. I don?t know who firstwrote in the Bible, perhaps Charles H. Elrod; his daughter Ida ElrodMorrow (my ggrandmother) wrote the later family information. In mostof her entries she spelled the name Ellrod. This Charles H. Elrod wasa son of Benjamin Elrod who was born in NC and died in MontgomeryCounty, IN. Unfortunately some of the dates for death were written atthe edge of the page and the paper has deteriorated. cont'd with names& dates of birth."

      "Thanks for your reply to my message. Did an Elrod from Charles H.Elrod's family marry one of your husband's relatives? (from anotherresearcher other than this compiler)
      I posted the information from Ida ELROD Morrow's Bible on this messageboard because most of the information on the internet about thisparticular Elrod family is incomplete and has lots of errors.
      I'm not looking for a home for the bible, it has a home with me. IdaElrod was my ggrandmother. She married James Morton Morrow inCrawfordville, Indiana in 1888 and they had 2 daughters, one of whomwas my grandmother. Ida and James lived with my father and his motherfor many years. My father inherited the bible when his mother died."[Transcribed 14 November 2007, SLJuhl, compiler]

      "My husband's mother was a Redenbaugh. Charles H.'s mother was SarahAnn Redenbaugh. His father was Benjamin Elrod. I know there is a groupof people working on the Redenbaugh Family Tree. They post on Ancestryand Roots web. My sister-in-law is part of that group. They take itseriously while I do iit for fun. You might try posting some of theinfo on line. I have losts of gaps so does my sister-in-law. I justhappen to be working on Charles H. part of the tree now. If you wantinfo on your family Rootsweb postings by Sandra Lee (this compiler)are by far the most documented.(Her e address is there on the site;sljuhl1234@yahoo.com or gsjuhl@peoplepc.com.) You can see by her entryshe has no info on Charles' Family (not until now with this new andadded information by Barbara). [Transcribed 14 November 2007, SLJuhl,compiler]
